Do you have a lot of card stock on hand? Do you have a vast array of colors?

One of the first things that attracted Ann to Stampin’ Up! products was that the colors of ink, card stocks and accessories all coordinate! What a time and money saver!

It saves you time because you’re not searching all over for a paper to go with your inks. And it saves you money because good coordinating colors make the card appear more expensive than it really is.

Just like this one layer card.  There’s just a greeting and a couple butterflies from one stamp set called Butterfly Basics that’s available to you next week.  With the help of the color coach, it looks even better!

Of course, I think that adding the little pearl made all the difference!

A no layer card is just a folded piece of card stock with stamped images on it.  We’re calling this a one layer card.  Maybe you see it as two.  I just know it’s rare that Ann doesn’t put a layer of card stock on the folded piece.


Butterfly Card

Ann’s going to a shoebox swap today.  Have you ever been to one?  We’ve had them here and they’re way more fun than a stamper should be allowed to have.

Each demonstrator brings a shoebox with enough supplies for everyone to make her card.  Then they all make each other’s cards.  It’s a grrrreat way to share ideas.

We thought this one would be good because it’s a good card to do at workshops.  We may even make it with our Stamp Club  later this month so we can teach them how to mask and how to make that big butterfly look the way he does.

You might already know how to do it, but we’re thinking that some of you may have forgotten these easy techniques.  How much can a human keep in their head all at one time without it falling out?

Rather than calling this a butterfly card, perhaps we should call it a jungle card!  (That’s what it looks like to me.)

If you don’t have a demonstrator and would like us to send you a new 2015 Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Brations catalog, please drop Ann a line at or give us a call at 530-674-5090.  We’ll hook you up.  They both go active on January 6th and you’ll be able to see this stamp set on page 26.

Or maybe you’re thinking that you’d like to get together with your friends and share your love of stamping.  That would even be better!  You can find out more about that here.

We’d love to have you and help you learn more about card making and paper crafting.
