Do you see the raised die-cut butterfly in the stamped background?

Butterfly Basics Card

We have been creating cards using this raised die-cutting technique and the Hello You Thinlits in the May Creative Stamping Workshops. For the best results with this technique, I recommend using Coaster Board and Transfer Adhesive Sheets. Please note that the Transfer Adhesive Sheets are on the Retired List and will be unavailable to order after 2 June or when supplies run out. Alternative adhesives are Two-Way Glue Pen and Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Here's some more layered butterflies with threads pulled from the Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker's Twine...

Okay, so how many butterflies did you find? I hope you found all four!

On a sadder note, the Around the World Stampin' Up! Challenge is coming to an end. This from our Design Team...

We want to inform you that the challenge of 15 May 2015 is our last challenge. Like you, we are all busy and are involved in several projects. The blog received a lot of readers but the insufficient number of participants encourages us to put our energy elsewhere. We loved this adventure and keep good memories. Thank you for participating!

So will you join with us for this last challenge and create something using the colours from my card... Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon and Crisp Cantaloupe.


Create a project using Stampin' Up! products in these colours, photograph it and add your photo to the bottom of the challenge post where it says "It's your turn!". Entries close 30 May.
