Butterfly Kisses – Sending Wishes Your Way

Does anyone remember the song Butterfly Kisses?  Well, when I created my butterfly wishes card for my May clubs, the first thing that came to mind, was the song Butterfly Kisses. It also reminds me of spring, something I definitely want to see after our long, cold, snowy New England winter!!!

Butterfly Wishes Butterfly Kisses Jeannine Tarrio Stampin' Up! Maine

Happy spring everyone.


What’s Your Type?

I love it when I see a card and it uses the stamp in a way I didn't even think of.  In this case the stamp set is Stampin' Up!'s  What's Your Type? I purchased it to use on scrapbook pages and thought most of the stamps were too big for cards. Well, Mary Brown's  card inspired my card below:

What’s Your Type?

I used the samp shapes and basic layout, however, I changed the colors and added the embellishment.  
Stamps:  What's Your Type, Sassy Salutations
Cardstock:  Rose Red, Whisper White
Ink:  Rose Red, Marina Mist, Soft Suede
Accessories:  Basic Hodgepodge Clips #133765, ArtisanEmbellishment Kit #137909

 Check  out the What's Your Type? stamp set on page 160 and 161 in the 2014-2015 catalog. This is another of my April workshop cards.


Another Paper Pumpkin Idea!

You could use the accordian card to make a mini album, however, I cut up the accordian card and made 4 gift/note cards and enclosed them in the box with an embelishment for the top flap. I used the Bokeh technique on one of the cards.

 Card 3:

Stampin' Up! #PaintedBlooms Jeannine Tarrio Maine Demonstrator

 I used the Spring Flowers Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the Blackberry Bliss strip near the top and Sassy Salutations for the sentiment. I also cut this piece of designer paper to 3 3/4" x 5".

and  Card 4:

Stampin' Up #AdventureBound Sympathy Card Jeannine Tarrio

I used the sentiment from Petite Pairs for the saying and a strip of paper from Stampin' Up!'s Adventure Bound Designer Series paper Stack (pg 46 #138878 Occasions Catalog).  I love how the paper reminderd me of flowers in a brick container or behind a brickwall and a positive message of time passes and heals.

Hope you are enjoying see what I did with sheet of paper and remember you get 2 sheets of this print in your paper pack.
