Butterfly Gala Card Set

I’m in love with this Gingham Gala Suite and especially the Butterfly Gala stamp set and punch.  I recently did a birthday card stamp-a-stack where my ladies made a dozen birthday cards.  This was one of the designs, and they made it in 4 of the Gingham Gala designer series paper colors.  I love this mini set of cards.  I didn’t make one in the Grapefruit Grove since it would have been orange and black, I reserve that color combo for Halloween.  Since it was birthday cards, I used the Life is Grand set for the sentiments.

I used the Gingham Gala paper, the Butterfly Gala bundle, and the Life is Grand set to make a set of 4 birthday cards.

This set is great for beginners since it’s simple stamping and punching.  I did use the stitched rectangle dies to add some more detail though.  This gingham paper reminds me of using the Buffalo Check background at Christmas.  I just want to use it on everything.

Beauty Abounds in Gold Foil

This card uses the Beauty Abounds stamp set on Gold Foil Cards with a Gorgeous Grape mat and gold embossing.  I also watered down some Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint with alcohol and painted on some accents.

I found and copied this design for my demo meeting project and then also used it for a club project.  I really love these Gold Foil-Edged Cards & Envelopes from the Holiday Catalog, and I’m so glad that they carried over into 2019.  I also had designed a Christmas card using these back in October (see further down).

Here’s the Beauty Abounds card.

Here’s the Christmas cards I did back in October with these card packs.  I did a silver version with Night of Navy ribbon and a gold version with Cherry Cobbler ribbon.

I colored the ribbon with Stampin’ Blends markers.  Loved how these came out.  It stiffens the ribbon a little, but it’s so pretty and easy.
