Hello, Connie Nichol here today with an interactive card featuring Uchi’s Design animation stamps, Elizabeth Craft Designs dies and Ranger Distress Oxide inks.  How fun is it to have a flying butterfly card? I designed this card around these very cool animated stamps from Uchi’s Design.  Basically you stamp the image, place the animation grid over top and when the grid moves, your stamped image comes to life. To make my card, I began by stamping the biggest butterfly onto a piece of white cardstock and adding a pull tab. I then used Elizabeth Craft Designs stitched square dies to create a square frame for my butterfly.  You want the frame to be slightly larger than your stamped butterfly so that it will create a pocket.

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a layout featuring a selection of dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I used the Butterfly 1 die from Elizabeth Craft Designs and the Believe patterned paper collection from BoBunny to cut a swarm of winged insects from bits of patterned paper (a great way to use up scraps)!

Anyway, for the Baby Love layout, I started with a plain piece of white cardstock and just spritzed a little Dylusions spray ink from Ranger on kind of a diagonal line to add a bit of interest to the background.  Then I added the title cut using a brand new…

Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper If I won the lottery I would do three things: Get a live-in cook or at least go out to extravagant restaurants on a regular basis…or both. Hire a personal photographer to document the events in our lives Buy fresh flowers for multiple rooms in my home every week So, you’d think that if I would do #3, then I must love flowers in paper crafts. Not so. In fact, I cringe at the thought of a flower on my page… even worse a butterfly. Yet… here I am. The minute I opened my Stampin’ Up! box, I went down in my craft room to see what the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper what all about. Maybe it’s because spring is never coming here in Newfoundland.   I am pretty sure we are skipping summer all together. Sure, spring came just last week when it was…
