Sneak Peeks: Butterfly Gala and the Botanical Butterfly DSP

Ready for a sneak peek?  You know I love black and white patterned paper.  Well, Stampin' Up! has a most incredible pack of paper for Sale-A-Bration.  If you are not familiar with Sale-A-Bration it is one of the best times of the year.  Starting January 3-March 31 2019 every time you place a $50 order (before tax and shipping) you get to choose a free gift from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.  I think you will find that there are SO many great choices.  If you forced me to choose just one, I would have to choose the Botanical Butterfly DSP.  I am a lover of paper and this pack checks off all the boxes for me.  One side is black and white designs (gingham check!!) and the flip side is beautifully colored designs.  It is fitting that my first sneak peek features this paper.


I used two of the designs from the Botanical Butterfly DSP.  Love the butterflies and will have to fight my hoarding instinct when it comes to the black and white gingham!

The sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set which will be featured more prominently in another post.  The ribbon is the Poppy Parade 1/2" Textured Weave Ribbon in the annual catalog.  The little heart is a Heart Epoxy Droplet (Occasions catalog page 5) colored using a Dark Poppy Parade Stampin' Blend.

Hope you enjoyed this sneak peek.  I will be focusing on more sneak peeks especially thank yous since we will all need them soon!

This card really stands out. It is simple but the red ribbon and heart makes the card. Thanks for sharing.

Oh My Gosh, Love this card. Like you I love Black and White cards with a touch of Red. Can you tell me what size you cut the butterfly paper too? I would love to try and make this card. Thanks

Thank you Tina. You are right it would be a great way to show off different papers. I think I am going to take your suggestions and do just that!

Thanks Debbie. I cut the butterfly panels of DSP at 1-1/4". I will have a tutorial soon. Thank you for stopping by!
