Bubble Burst and Butterflies
by Jean Okimoto

 

P1370443

Bubble Burst has arrived - with perfect timing for graduation, thank you and teacher cards.  I love how versatile it is for any celebration,  with hearts, stars, birds or the friendly fish from the Fish Tales Clear Stamp Set.  Champagne glasses would look great with it too!  

Hello, Jean Okimoto here - can you believe May is already over and it's time to switch over to summer cards?

Paint watercolor paper with Peerless Watercolors and let it air-dry it for a few minutes.  Add a sheer layer of diluted Peerless Transparent Gold.  Diecut the three smallest butterflies from the Butterfly Ensemble background set.  

Diecut the matching detailed butterflies from the intricate Morning Garden Butterflies set from gold mirror cardstock.  Diecut the three smallest butterfly centers.  Trim a bit off the bottom of the smallest center.  

Diecut white cardstock using 4" x 5-1/4" Rectangle Basics die.  Diecut it at an angle with Bubble Burst.

Stamp the greeting - from the Spring Lilacs Clear Stamp Set - with Rosebud Memento Luxe.  Heat-set the ink.  

Attach the diecuts to a Cherry Blossom Notecard - use foam dots on the left side of the center butterfly and the right side of the top and bottom butterflies.

Big thanks to everyone from Monday's SUMMER HEARTS class at Impress!  Hope you discovered a few unique ways to use the beautiful heart dies, stamps and papers in your stash.  I love finding different ways to use products from previous collections - and upcycling them in new and unique ways!  Thank you too - Ann and Cindi - for finding everything we needed for our summer cards.  Becca - we know you were hard at work filling Impress' online orders with products from Memory Box and Poppystamps...thanks!

See you all again on June 3rd for the SURF + TURF class.  Cards for Dads, grads and the special men in our life - it's like a summer bliss class for guy-cards.

Thanks for stopping by - see you again next week!
