Guest Post~Janis Lewis


Hey everyone! I have something super fun to show you all today. My good friend Janis made a beautiful card and I asked her if I could feature it on my blog. She said yes! I am so grateful so without further ado here is Janis...

Who else is so ready for SPRING? Okay, it's officially Spring, but I'm ready for it to start FEELING like Spring!

Yesterday I received my Stampin' Up order! Woo-Hoo! I love me some Stampin Up!

First I stamped the Swallowtail twice onto white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Then I colored one of the images using BIC markers.

I punched out butterflies randomly from the colored image. I used the Martha Stewart Classic Butterfly punch, but Stampin' Up also has butterfly punches. In fact, right now they have 2 different sizes I think.

Ready to see the final card?

  • Card measures 6" x 5"
  • Background is chalked in blue
  • Stampin' Up "Swallowtail" #129216
  • Martha Stewart "Classic Butterfly Punch"
  • Modern Label Punch #119849

  • Sentiment from SU "Little Friends" #122667
  • Card base is SU cardstock "Night of Navy" #100867

I'm also very excited to announce that my friend, RAVEN, has now signed up to be a Stampin' Up Demonstrator! Woo-Hoo! She is going to really fly in this business!
