We are a young, growing team, at The Critters’n Ink, Critters’ Den. With the catalogue launch this past month, we decided to start a monthly swap, within our group. This is my contribution. I hope you like it.
We need to first, create our butterfly background piece. I did this using a piece of whisper white card stock 5 1/2 x 4 1/4, and using a Stampin’ Sponge, I used 4 different inks to create a coloured sheet. I then take the die of choice, from the Butterfly Beauty Dies, and cut out my butterfly, with my Big Shot.
I remove the bottom right butterfly, with my paper snips as that’s where I want my sentiment to go.
I used the Tasteful Textile embossing folder to emboss another Whisper White (5 1/2 x 4 1/4), to use as the back ground for the butterfly.
I used mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, cut in half and smaller pieces, to elevate the butterfly element.
I layered this onto my card base (I used 4 different card base colours to reflect the colours I used to create the butterfly piece.) I used coordinating enamel dots to match the card base colour.
For the sentiment, I used white embossing powder on Basic Black card stock, then fussy cut it out and attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals

I do love my Paper Pumpkin Subscription. It has everything you need, each month to complete the products, whether they’re cards, treat/snack containers, gift tags, etc.
I used an additional little gem on the tag, from “Love what you do”, which is retired, but you can use a Pearl Basic Jewel and colour it with your favourite coordinating Stampin’ Blend marker.
I hope you like my first alternative video.

I made this card to say hello to my son, Ian, who is an essential worker in the Toronto area. He is an avid dirt biker and when he gets a day off, you can most often find him stirring up the dust on his bike.
The card base is Night of Navy, and the front matte is Crumb Cake. I stamped images from Geared Up Garage and the tire treads from Pedal to the Metal with VersaMark and embossed with clear embossing powder. I used the Stampin’ Sponge to smudge some crumb cake randomly on the card stock, and around the dirt bike image, which I die cut with the Stitched Nested Labels. I used the Classic Label Punch for the sentiment. I used Very vanilla for the dirt bike and sentiment.
