Our theme this week over at SUO Challenges is Anything Sizzix from Stampin’ Up. Wow…where does one start?? Well I needed a design for swaps at the Regionals in Baltimore and I knew I wanted to use the new Epic Day DSP so I went from there.
I think the papers in that set are so beautiful and I love this Daffodil Delight design. For some reason it said “butterfly” to me so I used my Beautiful Butterflies Die to create this fellow. I used another lined print to add a smaller layer. The Flower Trim is so pretty as centers on the butterflies so I dyed some with Daffodil Delight to match the Seam Binding. To add a little dimension to the card, I chose this zigzag pattern for a crossing panel. I scored on either side of it then used my Piercing Tool with the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack. The bow is a shabby bow made from the beautiful Daffodil Delight Seam Binding. Funny, I don’t normally think of this sunny yellow for a vintage card but I think it works well here. As you can see, I made a few of these for my swaps and I received some fabulous cards in return.
I have a small announcement to make with regards to SUO Challenges. This will be my last challenge with them as a design team member. I have had such an amazing time being on a team with such awesome talent. Truly, these stampers are some of the best! I am grateful for the opportunity they have provided to be in their company and look forward to continued inspiration from them (and their new team members!).
I am so glad you dropped by today. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on my Epic Butterflies! Hope your day is wonderful!
