In Color Shimmering Butterflies

I love to find inspiration from the Idea Book & Catalog—it's a fabulous resource!  When I need to create some cards to have on hand, it's easy to simply find a card I like in the Idea Book, and copy!

Take a look at the card on page 141 in the current Idea Book, and you'll see my inspiration for today's cards!

Four of the current In Colors are featured on these Two Cool cards.  The Designer Series Patterns Paper is Lucky Limeade, and the butterflies are in Pool Party, Calypso Coral, and Wisteria Wonder.  I love the way they complement each other.  So pretty together!  Plus, my card base is Pear Pizzazz, another In Color from 2010.

…then punched stamped area with the Butterfly Punch.

I also spritzed them my special Champagne Shimmer Mist rubbing alcohol mixture for lots of sparkle! 

The centers of the butterflies are adorned with a Soft Suede Itty Bitty Punch Pack flower punch topped with a Pearl Jewel.

I did a whole set of them in about two hours while I watched a movie.  I LOVE mass-producing!
