Hi there! I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, a college English professor, a mom to Annabelle (11) and Henry (8), and a wife to Eric (um . . .). I craft for fun and sanity. I am so glad you came to see my playful designs using ink and fibers. If you like what you see, please follow me online or come to my classes in Springfield, IL!
I will feature five projects this week (one each day, M-F), and you can have them (yes, completed projects!) either one of two ways:
1. Order the "Stamp of the Week" bundle to get the clear mount stamp set and the five completed projects
2. Order the "Cards of the Week" to get the completed projects on their own.
Click on the Tabs at the top of the website for more information.
Today's project requires a few steps, so I thought I'd walk through it picture by picture. It's a kind of pop-up card. The left wing is stamped directly on the cardstock and the right wing pops up off the page!
Stamp the left wing by masking the right wing. You don't have to worry about the body of the butterfly; that will be fixed in a moment.
After you have stamped it in Staz On, you can use your sponges to color. But first, you have to make a stencil. This takes some time, but once you do it, you can store it in the box with the stamp.
Stamp and sponge the right wing on a separate piece of cardstock and then cut it out with the paper snips.
Stamp the body of the Swallowtail on a separate piece of paper and then cut it out. Then, adhere it to the case of the card.
Step 4: cut a strip of the window sheet, fold it in half and then place it under the right wing. Use dots to adhere it to the right side of the butterfly.
