Butterfly Frame with Stampin'Up products

Last week I was having a little clean up in my craft room (yes, I know, shocking!) and I came across this little frame that I had left over from a class I had done some years ago.  And I thought it would make a lovely gift for someone if I tizzied it up with some stamps and paper.

So first I used a piece of "Irresistibly Yours" paper from our latest catalogue as the backing piece. I sponged it with Coastal Cabana and Pool Party ink.  Then I stamped the butterfly stamp with white ink on vellum, and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I used the Big Shot to cut the shape with the matching die from the Butterflies framelits.  I adhered one butterfly in the middle of each frame (popped up on a dimensional) and then used a glue dot to add a "Something Borrowed" embellishment to each one.

(Remember that "Irresistibly Yours" DSP is one of the SAB items... that means it is FREE with an order of $90 or more from any of our catalogues!)

The last thing I did was colour the centre of each embellishment with my Coastal Cabana Blendabilities - the colouring made a real difference to the finished result.

All up this project (and great gift) took around 15 minutes to make. And would be a great gift for almost anyone. I think there are lots of little girls (and big ones too) that love butterflies that would love this!
