Wildflowers and Butterflies Card

I received this card in a card swap in the spring with the VanIsle Group - a group of demonstrators who live on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada.  We get together twice a year and have our own Regional Events.

This card was created by Karen Vanderberg.  Obviously she is very talented!  I love how she used the corner rounder punch on 2 corners of each piece and put them together so they look like a flower.  An Antique Brad in the center just finishes it off.
To do the sentiment, you have to stamp it first before you run it through the Big Shot and the Fancy Fan embossing folder.  The slotches behind the flowers and butterfly are done using the now retired Colour Spritzer.  But you could use one of the Stampin' Spritzers still available - pg 164 Annual Stampin' Up! catalogue - Item #126185 - $3.95 for pkg of 2 spritzers - and some rubbing alcohol and Old Olive reinker.  Would do the same thing!

   Stamps:  Curly Cute, Summer Silhouettes, Papillion Potpourri
   Ink:  Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Rich Razzleberry, Cajun Craze,Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie
   Paper:  Whisper White, Old Olive, StazOn
  Other:  Fancy Fan EF, Sponge, Corner Rounder Punch, Stampin' Spritzer or Colour Spritzer (R), Antique Brad, Elegant Butterfly Punch

And, if you don't have a corner rounder punch, and would like to get something that will do double duty to stretch your budget dollars, have a look at the new Envelope Punch Board (click on the image to go to the store for more info)   ...

See that light brown oval button on the top?  That is a corner rounder (on the top side and the punch out for the envelopes on the bottom side)!!!!  Whoooo hooo, no more having to carry two tools, this one does both for you.  Item #133774 - $24.95 (plus S&H and tax)!

Happy Stampin' ....
