Small Butterfly Frame, Updates & GIVEAWAY

Hello! Hope everyone's week is off to a great start!

I have two very different cards to share with you today featuring the Small Butterfly Frame die and the Little Bits stamp set, as well as some of my favorite older supplies. You can find a full supply list at the bottom of this post.

This first card is actually made up of several of the "left overs" I had laying on the desk after an all day craft session...and it happens to be one of my all-time favorites! I just love it when that happens.

I started with the focal point of the card. I die cut 2 tags using the Timeless Tags 2 die from Steel Mill card stock and the In Bloom paper pad from My Mind's Eye. I've been hoarding this stuff. LOVE.

I layered 3 butterflies cut from the Small Butterfly Frame die on top of each other and left the "negative spaces" intact for the bottom layer. For the sentiment I die cut a banner from another one of my favorites - the Basic Banners die, colored it using Sweet Nectar dye ink and a dauber. Then I heat embossed "believe" in white using the Dream Believer stamp set.

Each was adhered to the little due of tags with foam tape.

I wanted the background to be interesting, but still allow that focal point to shine. So I added some splats to a Dove Grey card stock panel using watered down Distress Paint in Picket Fence and a paint brush. After it dried, I decided to "sprinkle" some hearts in there using the Little Bits stamp set. I stamped them first in White pigment ink, and then over-stamped them with Sweet Nectar dye ink.

I don't know about you, but I am always searching through multiple sets to find that perfect little accent image. And then it hit me...I need one set with several small accent images all in one! This sucker has taken up permanent residence on my desk. :o)

This next card is so outside of my comfort zone, it kind of scares me. I went bright y'all. Real bright. And playful. And a shaker!

But seriously, how could I not? This frame screams "Shake me!", doesn't it?

I die cut the Small Butterfly Frame from Sweet Gelato and created a little shaker focal point filled with Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

I stamped "birthday girl" on the inside of the shaker and adhered a die cut "hello" to the outside using the Hand Lettered Hello die.

For the background, I mimicked the shaker by creating a fun patterned paper using several of the images from Little Bits in multiple colors.

Still not sure if I am loving this card...but it was fun to create and I'm sure there is a little girl out there who will love to receive it!

  63. I am gearing up for my holiday crafting. I just haven't found that "one" stamp set yet that I want to use for our Christmas cards. I am working on making Christmas cards for my friend to send out - so this will help me get my mojo flowing for the holidays!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I'm holding off. . . My son's wedding is the end of October so right now it's all about that. The minute the "I Dos' are said, I will officially start thinking about the holidays!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Super sweet cards, love the designs!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Gorgeous cards I always procrastinate with my holiday cards then afterwards wish I'd had more time lol

    ReplyDelete
  67. "Procrastination" is my middle name, so holding on the holiday cards, though I have a few designs in mind. I AM going to make a birthday card similar to yours though- perfect timing for your post, as I know just the young teen with a birthday next week who will love those colors!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Cute cards! I am starting to think about my holidays cards, but that's about as far as I've gotten.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Hi Dawn! I think I want to hold out as long as possible because this year has flown by.. Love the cards you have showcased above. Thanks for sharing your talent with us!!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Great cards, but I have to confess your first card is my absolute favourite. Love the mix of soft colours and texture. I'm always trying to make Christmas cards all year round, but this year I'm way behind schedule and with my husband having some health issues earlier this year my crafting time has been rather limited. Hopefully, I can catch up in the next few months.

    ReplyDelete
  72. What a great idea to use the Small Butterfly Frame die for a shaker card! Love it! I'm ready to start Christmas crafting! I can't wait to see your October release!

  73. I'm usually late,but this year I made soma cards already :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. Really pretty cards, Dawn. I am looking forward to the W plus 9 holiday release before I start my holiday cards. I am sure there will something that will inspire me. Pam A.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Both cards are delightful. I love the gray behind the tag and the butterfly frame is just perfect for a birthday girl. Great background paper on both of them. I would love to start my holiday card making but I have several cards to make before I do that. I estimate my start time to be late October. Good thing I don't make too many of them, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  79. These cards are so pretty!! I love the pink/grey/white combo of the first card (really must get myself a butterfly die) and I'm always a sucker for shaker cards, this one is pink awesomeness!! Thanks so much for the chance to win the giveaway. I haven't started my xmas cards yet, still waiting to see what stamps/dies I will buy, so I'm looking forward to your release soon!

    ReplyDelete
  80. love both cards and love anything Wplus9, so any giveaway is perfect and winning a gift certificate would be amazing. thanks for the chance to win.

  81. Super love these, especially the first with the tags. The holiday bug literally just hit me last week, and I just started prepping for it.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Always so inspiring!!! Love the "out of comfort zone card! I am in no way ready to start making my holiday cards!!

    ReplyDelete
  83. great ideas...now to get going on inspired projects

    ReplyDelete
  84. Working on fall crafting....not really thinking about Christmas yet. I really like how you can use just a single butterfly from the butterfly frame or all together. Beautiful

    ReplyDelete
  85. All my craft supplies are packed into boxes ready for a house move & since we have to have a small flat to rent whilst looking for somewhere to buy it's going into storage for 6 months. I love the idea of your little bits stamp set. Your double tag focal image with the butterfly is my favourite of these two - the colours are so elegant together & perfectly complement by your design.

  86. Your cards are beautiful Dawn! So soft and pretty. I love your butterflies, just so happy! Holiday card making is NOT on my to do list...wish it was but I'm a true procrastinator. Looking forward to the October release though!

  89. Funny enough, holiday cards are the ones I have a tendency not to craft, as we have such a large family and use it as an opportunity to send out photo Shutterfly cards. We only live close to my side of the family, who are Jewish so all of the Christmas swag out there does me no good. I really wish there were more non-Christian stamp sets available *hint, hint*. :) Thanks for the opportunity to win these gorgeous products!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Gorgeous cards, Dawn! I didn't realise how beautiful is this butterfly die. We have a lot of birthdays this time of year, so Christmas cards have to wait a bit - but it hasn't stopped me stockpiling, lol!

    ReplyDelete
  98. I'm giving myself time right now to enjoy fall themed card making before getting into holiday cards.

Grateful for a chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  124. First, I LOVE your bright card! Don't be afraid, you got it girl! I love the first soft subtle card too, something I'm NOT so great at. Nope, haven't started in on the holiday cards yet. I'm enjoying making cards without Santa on them for a bit longer.

    And you?

  145. I love your leftover card, especially the colors. I haven't started my Christmas cards yet as I don't have my Halloween cards done yet. I have this OCD thing about not starting Christmas until Halloween cards are done. LOL

  146. Oh, what a great giveaway!!
    Holiday crafting consists of teacher and neighbor gifts and I am just getting started. I've got patterned paper picked out and am working towards the embellishments, which is the fun part! ;) I loved the WPlus9 holiday goods last year. I'm sure this year will be even better! Thanks for the chance to win!

    I can't quite see how you got the butterfly out of the frame without getting the heavy bars of the frame. I must be missing somthing.

  181. The Little Bits stamp set just flew to the top of my must-have list. I love your style and have been enjoying watching your YT videos - especially when you watercolor. You are gifted.
    Christmas cards? My card making is so far behind, it makes me sad.

  194. These butterfly cards are so pretty. Love the tag detail on the first and the beautiful shaker element on the last. I am ready to start my holiday cards but I need to decide on a final design for family and the few friends I send them out to.
