Butterfly and Fabulous Friend

It's almost time to watch for Butterflies in the yard so I'm in the mood to punch some butterfly cards it seems.
This card uses Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight and White Card Stock  Another simple card with only some ribbon in Pear Pizzazz and a couple butterflies as accents.
I used the Beautiful Butterflies Embosslits for the little guy and the Butterfly Punch for the larger one.  The scalloped oval with the Oval All Stamp Set Sentiment of Fabulous Friend.
The Embossing Folder used is Elegant Lines.
Card was cased from Sue Davis, NH.

Simple cards are fun to do sometimes.  Here is one using the SALE-A-Brations stamp set called Sprinkled Expressions.  I used it as a Congratulations card and have also used this as a Just for You card.  I suggest Occasional Quotes and Congratulations stamp sets if you have them as both are retired now.  However any sentiment will do.  I was surprised how easy it was to stamp the sentiment after  I had run my Whisper White through the Big Shot with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  Of course I forgot to stamp it first so this was a good test.  Thankfully it worked!! 
My Ink, Ribbon and Card Stock are Island Indigo.  I added a Pearl for good measure.  :-)

Another cased card from the Stampin' Up Convention in Columbus, Ohio that I attended in February.  Here is a cheerful, Just for You greeting from the OVAL ALL stamp set.  I used Daffodil Delight (a new favorite), Wild Wasabi, and Whisper White on this card along with Wild Wasabi and Whisper White Ink.  I stamped the blossom with White Craft Ink and then embossed with white embossing powder and the heat gun.  I used the Wild Wasabi Stampin' Up Marker for the leaves.  The center of the flower is Dry Embossed with the Square Latttice Folder and the outside of the Whisper White with the Framed Tulip Folder.  I used Stampin' UP's wide Daffodil stripped ribbon and tucked behind the Whisper White.  Also used the medium oval and scalloped punch plus the Blossom Bunch to pop out the flower.

I think Black and White is always elegant and then add a little sunshine with Daffodil Delight and a cute card.  This is cased from a card received during a swap at the Regional Stampin' Up Convention in Columbus, Ohio.  A simple but nice way to remember someone.

Hello from the Elementary Elegance from the SALE-A-Bration Mini and Mixed Bunch from the Occasions Mini.  The only ink used is Basic Black  Any Embossing Folder for the background.  Card Stock includes Basic Black, Whisper White and Daffodil Delight.  Only embellishment is a little ribbon for a tie.  Punches:  Blossom, 3/4" and 1" Circle
