Welcome back! I'm so glad you could join the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team for our first Blog Hop of May! Today we are featuring our projects that were featured on the Stampin' Up! Facebook page last week. You might have just arrived from Jeanna’s blog. If not, make sure you go all around the hop and get to her beautiful scrapbook page!

I decided to make a set of cards featuring the Swallowtail stamp that were very "shimmery". I also used the greeting from the Oh, Hello stamp set and the splatter stamp from the Paper Pumpkin Welcome Kit. I cut the Shimmery White Cardstock apart to make two 4.25" x 11" cards. Tip #1: Stamp the butterfly across the middle of the card before scoring so the image shows on the back and is uninterrupted. Now you can score the card in half and use a craft knife to trim along the right edge of the butterfly.


Next, cut a piece of matching cardstock to 4.25" x 5.5". Stamp the splatter stamp with coordinating ink over the cardstock rectangle. Tip #2, take Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz, and both spray the cardstock piece and drip the ink by unscrewing the lid and dropping it directly onto the cardstock (this technique I learned about from Sarah).



Next, stamp the greeting with White Stazon ink onto a piece of clear Window Sheet. Line up the right edge of the window sheet with the right edge of the cardstock, but adhere only the left edge of the greeting to the cardstock. Then, adhere the whole stamped cardstock piece to the rest of the card front under the butterfly.



The last step is to tie on a piece of matching ribbon, and enjoy your cards! Tip #3: use the Thanks So Much stamp from the Oh, Hello stamp set to make a set of thank you cards for yourself or a friend. Everyone needs thank you cards, right?


Well, that is all for today. You will find the supplies listed below. Also, you’ll want to join us again next Wednesday as we feature a hop with all new projects! And, don’t forget to click to get to Sarah’s Blog for the next stop on the hop. You won’t want to miss her clever mini-album and decorative can. Thanks for stopping by!
