Butterfly Gala Better With You Cards
If you like butterflies, you are going to LOVE the Occasions Catalog & Sale-a-Bration Flyer!  Butterflies are BACK and are better than ever!  Today's projects showcase a few of my favorite NEW butterfly-themed products!

Background Basics—Our card begins with a Thick Whisper White card base, then we start decorating with some of the lovely NEW Botanical Butterflies Designer Series Paper.  This awesome paper pack is a FREE selection from the Sale-a-Bration Flyer when you place a $50 order!  Get a sneak peek at it in my video tutorial below! 
I added adhered a 1-1/2" x 5-1/2" strip of the Botanical Butterflies black & white gingham pattern onto the card front.  Next, I mounted a 2-3/4" x 3-3/4" piece of the Botanical Butterflies Highland Heather design DSP onto a 2-7/8" x 3-7/8" Basic Black mat.  I popped up that element with Dimensionals.

Sweet Sentiment—I stamped a sentiment from the NEW Butterfly Gala stamp set in Granny Apple Green onto Whisper White cardstock, then die-cut it with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I popped this up with Dimensionals, as well.

Beautiful Butterflies—The NEW Butterfly Gala photopolymer stamp set and coordinating Butterfly Duet punch allow you to create pretty & colorful butterflies in minutes!  I stamped the outline image of the butterfly duet, which includes both the large and small butterflies, in Memento Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  The stamp set is a "two-step" one, meaning that you can fill in the color on the butterfly with a coordinating solid image.  There are stamps that will fill in the top wings and the bottom wings.  I inked both up with Pool Party ink, stamping the entire butterfly in one color.  But, I wanted a multicolor look, so I used Granny Apple Green and Highland Heather Stampin' Write Markers to add some additional colorful details!  
Cool Coordinating Punch—Once my butterflies were colored, I punched them with the coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch, which punches out both the large and small butterflies at the same time!  Too Cool!  The large butterfly was attached with SNAIL and a Dimensional.
Bundle It & SAVE—Purchase the Butterfly Gala stamp set & Butterfly Duet Punch together in a Bundle to save 10% off the cost of purchasing them separately.
Butterfly Bodies—I learned that it's much easier to add the Basic Black butterfly body stamps to the butterflies AFTER they are punched.  They are photopolymer, so you can see right through the stamp in order to line it up in the punched out shape.  There is a large body stamp for the large butterfly and a small one for the small butterflies.
Finishing Touches—I added some silver Metallic Pearl jewels to the four points on the flourish.

Tiny Butterflies—The small butterfly has a single solid image that fills the outline with color.  I colored one of the small butterflies like the large one.  On the second small butterfly, I stamped it with the solid image in Soft Sea Foam, then colored the accents with Balmy Blue & Highland Heather Stampin' Write Markers.  Both small butterflies are attached with a Glue Dot and the wings are bent upward so they appear to have alighted onto the card!  LOVE it!
Finishing Touches—I added a couple of silver Metallic Pearls to the sentiment circle for a little shine.

Two Cool—The second card features a Lemon Lime Twist pattern for the background foundation.  I also stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black.

Bitty Butterflies—These butterflies all started with a Daffodil Delight solid stamped fill, then they were colored with Granny Apple Green and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Markers.  I had butterflies in similar colors on my bedroom border wallpaper when I was growing up!  Ahhh…memories!
