Beautiful Butterfly Gala!

I absolutely love this stamp set!  The designs on the butterflies are gorgeous and fun to color.  This set has been so popular that the punch is currently on “not orderable” status until the manufacturer can keep up and get us product.  This will be back in stock, but no date has been set as of yet.  I will be sure to inform you when the punch is available again.  The stamp set is available and you can add it to your collection today if you like.

The colors that I used on the butterflies were inspired by ribbon that I had received on a gift from one of my downline. Pacific Point, Flirty Flamingo, Mango Melody, Lemon Lime Twist, & Pineapple Punch pair well together for a bright and colorful butterfly.

Heat embossing sentiments has been my go-to technique for so many of my recent creations.  The White Stampin’ Emboss Powder & Basic Black Cardstock against a Whisper White card base really makes it pop. Slant the end for a subtle but completed feel.

The Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins paired perfectly with the bold colors used in the butterflies.  With both flat and iridescent options in the package, they can add just the right touch to any creation.

I created a full-sized and 3x3 note card to show how one butterfly can really make a statement. The diagonal striped black and white peeking out from behind the card front is the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and can be earned FREE with a qualifying purchase during Sale-A-Bration (through March 31st or While Supplies Last).

3x3 note cards are the perfect size to slip inside a lunch box, bathroom bag, or backpack.  Add a little note to show a loved one you care.

The Clear Tiny Treat Boxes are easy to decorate and accommodate so many different gift options, they are ideal for so many occasions. I filled these with my kiddos leftover sour patch kids with matched the colors of the butterflies.
