This was one of my shoe box cards. First I spritzed watercolor paper with water and then used the new oxide inks to create a background.  then used the die to cut out .  I used the left overs to stamp the greeting and cut that out with the "clean up" die from the StampinUp Floral thinlets.  I stamped the butterfly and then used dobbers to color the butterfly.  Wink of Stella was put on the butterfly.  Looks better in real time.  For some reason the Stella does not photograph well.

This was one of my swap cards I made last month.  I saw a card on
Pinterest that I cased.  I think the way they ran the striped paper was interesting so I scrounged my stash of striped paper and made the card. Had to put on my thinking cap because I had only two sheets of 6x6 paper & did not want to mess it up!

I never get tired of this stamp set.  It is one I bought when I first started stamping.  It's StampinUp and has been retired forever.  The birthday is also retired or the company is out of business, I'm not sure.

Here's a card that Pam made for shoe box.  I had to redo my twine on my card because it was all wonky.

This card was one I made for the fund raiser.  I ended up putting three tiny pearls on each of the butterflies which made it look a lot better.  Guess I didn't get a picture of that though.

Another swallowtail card.  What a great source the internet is for card ideas.  I love the pop up when you open the card. I hope  you can  tell how it works from the pictures.  I think I would leave the 3rd section off the next one I make because it sorta gets in the way of the butterfly when you open the card.  Hope that makes sense.
