Lunette Butterfly, Piano Border and Calm Countryside...


(click to see the photos fullsize)

Pam here to get your weekend off to a stamping, die cutting, stenciling start!  

On this first card, I gave the Floral Mesh stencil a spritz with glitter mist on watercolor paper. Let it dry, mat it to Dill Card-stock and layer it on to a piece of Violet Dot Signature pattern paper.  Then adhere it to an A-2 Parchment Notecard.

I die cut the Venita Flourish and the butterfly body from Silver glitter card-stock. I cut the Lunette Butterfly from the watercolor paper so the color would match and the Oriel Butterfly from Lavender Card-stock.  I inked part of the A Very Happy Hello Combo stamp and stamped in black ink using the stamp a ma jig.  I looped some lavender cord and then glued everything to the card with Tombow Mono Multi glue.


Don't you just love this Piano Border die?  I do!  Playing the piano was one of my first loves.  I still enjoy it!

The card base is Black Card-stock 5 1/2 x 11 in., scored and folded in half.  I free hand cut to make it look like a Grand Piano. Then I decided it needed a music rack!  I die cut and embossed the Calozonia Frame and just used part of it.  Some of the other frames would work great too!

I cut a rectangle with my paper trimmer, scored it in half and stamped Just a Note combo stamp with black ink using the stamp a ma jig.

The Piano Border is cut from Black Card-stock and backed with a piece of White Card-stock cut 2 x 5  1/2 in.


I've been wanting to play with this new Calm Countryside die.  I die cut it from a White A-2 Notecard, placed a piece of Water Card-stock on the inside of the card for the sky.  Added the small Kite from the Summer Kites die in Squash Dot Signature pattern paper and the sentiment stamp Just Thinking of You Combo stamped in black ink with the stamp a ma jig and it was done!  I really like it!  I had a couple other ideas to try with it but I didn't think I better make this post any longer! lol 

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a great weekend!


P.S.  I have a giveaway over on my blog for the Lunette and Oriel Butterfly dies!  HERE
