Look What We Did Today!

Since both of the cards we did today had something on the inside I have combined them each into one picture so you could easily see the outside and the inside of them.  Both of these cards I cased but I also added a little of my own twist to it so they are not exact copies.
This was one of the two projects we did today.  I cased this one from Amy Koenders.  Unfortunately the butterfly thinlit is unavailable to order at this time due to shipping problems.  Hopefully things will resolve and they will become available.  I used the Irresistably Yours Designer series Paper (A Sale-A-Bration item you can gt for FREE) and sponged it with 4 different colors starting at the bottom from darkest to lightest.  Then wiped it to bring the leaves back to white.  There are so many ways to use this paper.  You can spritz it, brayer and also sponge it for color like I did.  It was a lot of fun to play with! I am excited about the possibilities.  The butterfly on the inside of the card I stamped with Pool Party and then punched with the Elegant Butterfly punch.

Hint: For using some of the thinlits which are intricate like this one. You need non-scented dryer sheets.  Take 4 of them and open them up and lay them on top of each other.  When all 4 are laid out fold them in half.  Depending on your Big Shot you might need to adjust but 4 worked for me.  You don't want it to cut through the dryer sheets. To cut out the butterfly make your sandwich as follows. Between the 2 clear plates you start with the dryer sheets, paper, and lastly the thinlit.  I would run it through twice, backwards and forwards.  When you take it out the thinlit should come right off leaving your cut out butterfly on the dryer sheets.  Pick up one edge and gently peel off.  All the pieces which normally you would have to pick out should stay on the dryer sheets.  You can use the same dryer sheets over and over again. overlapping the paper remnants from prior times.

Supplies: Soft Sky, Bermuda Bay and Whisper White cardstock;Irresistibly Yours and Subtles Designer Series Paper; Papillon Potpourri Stamp set, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabanna, Pool Party, Soft Sky ink; and Elegant Butterfly punch.
This was our second project and I cased it from Dawn Olchefske. It was a lot of fun to make.  I love this stamp set and the so many possibilities it has.  I have more men in my family than girls so I am always looking for a great manly card.  I think this fits the bill but I would have no problem getting this card.

Supplies: Soft Suede and Very Vanilla cardstock; Work of Art and Sassy Salutations Stamp Set; Soft Suede, Marina Mist, Pool Party, Early Espresso and Tangelo Twist ink; Early Espresso Marker, Chevron Embossing Folder; sponge, 1" circle punch, and Distress Tool.
