definitely does not photograph well! It has alot of sparkle that just disappears like the strip of rhinestones for the butterfly body and then the Shimmer mist spray on the body and on the cardstock strip.
The DSP is from Fan Fair, I do like both sides of this sheet, the blue pattern on one side and the Crumb Cake grid one the other. The crumb cake side also has faint writing on it as well, giving it a bit of life. The Island Indigo strip is stamped with the vine image from Creative Elements in Island Indigo giving it a tone on tone look and the butterfly also from Creative Elements is stamped with Island Indigo ink onto Very Vanilla and then cut out.
The sentiment is from the new set, World Treasures and simply cut out with my Big Shot and the new Apothecary Accents framelits.
Don't these flowers look real? I love this new set, Stippled Blooms, so so pretty. The flowers are stamped in Primose Petals, stamped off on scrap for the solid bloom and then full strenght the for detailing. This type of stamping really makes images pop.The layers are matted with Lucky Limeade and then a little bit of that beautiful ribbon from Sale-a-bration to finish it off.
How about making pretty tags to dress up your packages-quick and easy by using our Framelit dies.
For this tag I used the Labels Framelits, cutting one in Pretty In Pink and then a smaller one in Whisper White. I ran the pink one through the Big Shot again with the Lattice Impressions folder to give it some texture. The Whipser White one, is stamped with Stippled Blossoms, I am thinking this is one gorgeous set. Don't those flowers look real! Yes, it is a two step stamp, but that is what gives it the realistic look and really two step stamping is easy. I take a piece of Vellum Cardstock and stamp my images on it using my Stamp-a-ma-Jig handle and keep it in the stamp case so it is always ready for use. For this tag I used Pretty in Pink and Primrose Petals for the flowerders stamping off for the solid image so we really get tone on tone. Add the tag to your gift with some ribbon, and you will have the receiptant wondering what they did to deserve this!
Each Tuesday, Stampin' Up! releases new downloads for My Digital Studio. You can always find them here. Well, one of the recent downloads, was a Designer Photobook template called Keep this Memory. I knew just what I wanted it for, my parent's went on a trip to China for their 64th Wedding anniversary. I got my Dad to send me a disc of his photos, telling him it would be cheaper than printing them out for me (yes, he believed me, I mean it really was true) and of course, lots of phone calls asking strange questions about their trip and certain pictures. It is a good thing I was a nosy kid, they are quite used to it! So armed with the pictures, gleaned information and their itinerary and the internet, I managed to make a pretty good book. The cover, I used the template, adding one of their pictures and the title
Inside I used the templates adding stamps and journalling, changing the order of the pages to suit me. I love the picture tools in MDS, being able to zoom in, crop and even change the picture colours.
I was really impressed with my Dad's photo taking, some very nice shots.
On the back I added a map of China, highlighting a few of the places they went to, and used digital transparent tape to "attach" it.
I am giving it to them today, so hopefully they will be as pleased with it as I am.

Have you noticed how many birthday cards I have been posting lately? Seems I have alot of friends that are born in July!
Here is another with the new sentiment set, Sassy Salutations and since it doesn't fit in a punch, I just used a strip and rounded the corners.
And notice something else that seems to be a trend with me lately? Using DSP on a regular basis, I am so going for my goal of having no leftover DSP from this catalogue! This paper is from Patio Party and it is perfect for a birthday card. I used Pretty in Pink for the base and then a scalloped piece of Midnight Muse to hide the edge of the paper. Pretty in Pink tafetta ribbon adds the contrast.
I had them in one of the first places I rented, beautiful till they fell off!! The new Vintage Faceted Designer buttons, are going to remind you of those door knobs.Each pack contains eight of three different sizes, with just enough bling to push your project that notch up. And don't worry, they are not made of glass, so no worries on breakage.
A beautiful Designer Series paper pack in the new Idea Book & Catalogue that works so beautifully with the stamp set, World Treasures. Now the large image in World Treasures, is a beautiful peacock with his feathers proudly displayed. Notice the paper from the DSP pack, ties in so wonderfully.
I stamped the bird using Midnight Muse, you have got to try the new ink pads if you haven't yet, they stamp so wonderfully. I then used Lucky Limeade, Summer Starfruit and Primrose Petals markers to colour in a few of the feathers. The image is matted with Rich Razzleberry along with a simple scalloped strip pulling the colour out of the paper.
Such a wonderful colour, bright and cheerful and it is perfect for summer. These are my Thank You card for June, a bit of a summery feel, because we have not been having summery weather. Is it bad when the news people say Junuary!! And Mount Washington had skiing for Father's Day weekend. July hasbetter be better!!
The card bases are 3 X 3 Whisper White and then Gumball Green matting for the main image. The bird from Betsy's Bloom is stamped using Raspberry Ripple and sitting on a Gumball Green branch.
