I Took Stampin'Up! Butterfly Brilliance Out of the Trash!
A Card Designed with Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper

Do you want to see a "Brilliant" Kaleidoscope?

Do you want to see a "Brilliant" KaleidoscopeDid you know a group of butterflies is called a Kaleidoscope? What a fun name for a bunch of butterflies--so I thought this card fit that description very well.

Vellum card

The background is that beautiful Butterfly Bijou Designer Series paper--with a definite Kaleidoscope of butterflies. Using two of the watercolor designer papers for the under-butterflies, I cut two of the butterfly overlays in white to top them off. 

With most of the hard work done for you with that lovely designer paper, this card takes only minutes to assemble but looks much more difficult.

Let me remind you of the "brilliant idea" we discussed last week. Let's say you want to create 10 cards using just one of those six butterflies in the single stamp---what can you do so that you don't have to stamp all 6 butterflies?

Here's a Brilliant Idea--purchase a separate stamp set ($17), cut apart the butterflies--- each is a completely separate image. Now you can stamp each one singly leaving the other stamp whole to stamp all 6 at one time! "Brilliant", right?

Until May 3rd you can purchase this bundle (stamps and dies) after May 3rd it will appear in the new annual catalog. The designer paper and the Specialty paper will not be available after May 3rd.
