Flutter By Wednesday: Butterfly Project

One of the reasons I love Wednesday is because it's time for a little Flutter By. Ann is the featured stamper this week so be sure to leave her some love. And we welcome a new gal to our team this week - the very talented, super sweet Southern Yankee Stamper, Nancy Bush. Our challenge this week in addition to using a butterfly was to use NO patterned paper. Danni did say that using embossing folders was okay --- so I'm hoping that heat embossing is okay too!

My page was inspired by the Butterfly Project I saw over at LollyChops. I was in charge of demoing heat embossing at the scrapbook club tonight. We made a card and then to practice the technique, each of us took some cardstock, a stamp and embossed using either Clear, White or Glitter embossing powder. Then we punched out butterflies and traded so that we all had a mix. One gal even ran hers through the AccuCut die so we had some big ones too!

Here's a close-up of each of the Flutter Bys. I took a harlequin stamp, a gate stamp (Stampington) and then several stamps with text and the heart from the Always set (SU!). I love how the designs show up int he butterfly - lots of interest and texture. My little guy loves butterflies so I can't wait to get a picture to place on this page. My mom found a really pretty butterfly last fall that she has preserved and I think she has some pics of him with that.

Be sure to stop by the rest of the Flutter By team and see their creations this week. You'll find their links in my sidebar! Be sure to use keyword FBW when uploading to SCS or PCP so we can see your creation!!

My Cuttlebug Challenge post is still to come so be sure to scroll up for that one!

Followed you from Lolly's blog. I love me some flutterbyes so you know I think this rules. Love the colors and how they look like they are in flight (a game of follow the leader, perhaps?) Just wunnerful.
