Happy Anniversary Leah’s Cards!

012

 I can’t believe how fast time has flown by!

For the month of October,

Leah’s Cards

Celebrating 2nd Anniversary

For more then 10 years I have been creating cards, invitations, stationary and brochures through digital graphic art designs. Then by way of my local Department of Recreation Newsletter and a push from my baby girl I was invited to attend my first Stampin Up stamp camp.  I had know idea what I was in for, I was hooked that very first night. Now it is more then 2 years later, Leah’s Cards was created and I have learned how to expand my gifts through stamping as well as blessed to meet some wonderful people that I have developed friendships that I will carry for a lifetime.

Screen Shot 2014-09-11 at 2.23.29 PM

3D Butterfly Adorns the

Fun Flower Post it Note Cover

This would be a great gift for someone decorating a new office, a teacher, family member or a good friend.

It’s a simple quick project that gives a big Wow after your finished.

Instructions

Base

1. Cut a piece of Black Berry Bliss card stock, 3-1/2 x 9-1/4image

2. Score at 3-1/8, 3-1/2, 6-1/2, and 6-7/8

3. Line up label collection framlit 4 at the top

Tip: count the framelits starting from the center, ( smallest framelit) until you get to the 4th one

Tip: The top is the side with the shortest distance from the first score line, the bottom forms a 3-1/8 x 3-1/2 box from the last score line to the edge of the paper.

4. Using the Big Shot and the Magnetic Platform layer the clear plate 1/2 way from the left point to the right point only cutting the top half of the die and the paper as shown. Also cut 1 label for the sentiment using label collection framelit # 2 in Daffodil Delight, stamp your sentiment and set aside

5. Next stamp both sides of the Post It Note cover base with the Flowering Flourishes Stamp in Versamark Ink and heat Emboss it with the gold embossing powder and set with the heat tool

image3D Fun Flower

6. Punch out 3 Fun Flowers in Daffodil Delight Card Stock, then sponge the edges with Black Berry Bliss Ink

7. Using a bone folder shape each petal under and every other petal over, to give them a realistic shape

8. Stack the 3 flowers by using a glue dot in between each layer off setting the petals.

Tip: You may also use a brad to stack the flower, I found it was just easier for me to use the glue dot

Prepare The Butterfly

9. Stamp 1 large Papillon Potpourri Butterfly in Versamark Ink on the black berry bliss card stock and heat emboss in the gold embossing powder, Punch out using the Elegant Butterfly Punch

10. Stamp the small Papillon Potpourri Butterfly in Black Berry Bliss ink on daffodil delight card stock and punch out with the itty bitty punch

image11. Stack the small Butterfly on top of the Larger Butterfly with adhesive leaving the wings free, just apply the glue to the butterfly spine then attach to the top of your 3d flower in the center

Tip: You may shape the butter fly and puff it to add a more 3d effect to the project, see the tutorial at this link, http://www.leahscards.wordpress.com/2014/04/08/creative-elements-butterfly-3d-technique-tuesday/

12. Now glue the 3d flower to the top flap of the post it note cover

13. Center the 3×3 Post It Note pad and adhere with adhesive to the inside center panel of the cover base

14. Add the Super Slim Small Magnetic + disc or Velcro with red sticky strip or a very strong adhesive to the underside of the cover top flap. Center and add the – magnet to the underside of the bottom of the post it note cover.

15.    Embellish with Rhinestones and enjoy
