Sunny, hot summer days are here! I love this time of year! I like to start my summer days drinking coffee on my front porch enjoying the fresh air and pretty flowers. Some days, I'm lucky enough to have a few butterflies to greet me. With the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle, you can make and send bright, beautiful butterfly cards to your friends and family. In this Facebook Live video replay, you'll see me demonstrate how to make 6 Butterfly Brilliance cards quickly and easily with my Stamparatus. I'll give you some tips for using the Stamparatus to make your card making experience better. If you don't own the Stamparatus, our amazing stamping platform, this video will show you one of many ways that this amazing tool can be a beneficial addition to your craft room.
Color the butterflies with Stampin' Blends in your choice of colors. I used Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, and So Saffron to color mine.
The Vellum Card Stock circle creates a focal point for the stamped and die cut butterflies. I used the 3rd largest circle die from the Layering Circles Dies.

I'm delighted to bring you this video demonstration on making Easel Cards. You are going to love this Fun Fold and be surprised at how easy it really is to make if you haven't tried it yet. You'll also get a look at some cool new In Colors and a brand new bundle. All coming with the launch of our new Annual Catalog on May 4th. Be ready to listen and learn, and pay special attention to my tips on using the Stamparatus in creating with Builder Punches.
This is my sample easel card I made to show before demonstrating. I love the 3 new In Colors I used and how they compliment each other. They are Polished Pink, Soft Succulent, and Evening Evergreen.
Soft Succulent card base = 4 1/4" x 11", score at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2"
Basic White layer on inside of card = 5 1/4" x 4"
DSP on front = 2 1/2" x 4"
Basic White layer on front = 4 1/4" x 2 3/4"
Evening Evergreen layer on front = 4 3/8" x 2 7/8"
Builder Punches can be tricky to use. I hope you picked up some tips from my video to make using the Flowers & Leaves Punch and other builder punches easier.
The easel card below was made with the Flowers of Friendship Stamp Set without the coordinating Flowers & Leaves Punch. Instead I chose to color the stamped image with Stampin' Blends.
I love this sentiment "Little Card, Big Thanks". A small display of appreciation can make a big impact.
Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you will take the content and tips given to make some easel cards of your own. It's always fun to share what I love to do, especially when it involves new techniques and new products.
