May Card Club

 May's Stampin' Up card club with Paula of Knall Crafting was all about Papillon Potpourri...everybody else bought Bermuda Bay as their ink for this class but as I already had it I went for a different colour, Real Red, to build my collection up. As well as the ink I also got a reel of Real Red Taffeta Ribbon to play with on my cards.
 All of the cardstock I used was Whisper White and Real Red.
 Ads you can see for most of my cards I decided to use Sassy Salutations, I know it's no surprise as I do love this set so much. For some of the cards I changed which of the larger butterflies I used as well as I prefer the flower print on to the detailed drawn one.
It's cards like this one that make me think I need to get the Flowering Flourishes stamp set as it really is a great set to use.
 For this card we used a circular mask and brought out the Gorgeous Grunge set from the April class and stamped using the smallest of the paint splats before then removing the mask and stamping the stripes over the top. The large butterfly was punched out of plain Whisper White card using the Elegant Butterfly punch and then sponged with ink using daubers. Think this is my favourite card from the class actually.
 This simple yet elegant card using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool for the embossed (or debossed as I chose to use them) lines and happy birthday wishes sentiment from the Petite Pairs stamp set.
 For this card we used the small butterfly silhouette and then the Bitty Butterfly punch to punch it out. Using the card scrap we punched an Elegant Butterfly out of earlier as a mask we could then sponge dauber ink to produce 3 more butterflies 'flying' up the card. The sthank you sentiment comes from the Blooming With Kindness stamp set.

 Once again Paula made us a lovely gift...this time it was an A6 notepad using some of the new watercolour papers for the tag and the tag topper punch too.
