Dawn's August 13th Birthday Celebration: Concord Crush meets Punch Potpourri

Well today's the day...Dawn's Friday the 13th Birthday Celebration - TODAY's my BIRTHDAY!  And here's my gift to you!!! 

This week I'm sharing some of my favorite things from the 2010-2011 Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog.

Dawns Favorites:
Punch Potpourri Stamp Set (Level One Hostess Set)
Occasional Quotes Stamp Set (Level Three Hostess Set)
Rhinestone Jewels (#119246)
Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#119277)
Butterfly Punch (#119848) 

Dawns Card:
...is inspired by my friend and downline Laurie Zoellmer.  I received her butterfly card as a swap at convention and instantly fell in love with the way she did the Butterfly punch art.   I did add my own twists, by using my new favorite color...Concord Crush and by adding Rhinestone Jewels for the butterfly body.


The Butterfly is actually 3 layers.  The bottom two layers are Concord Crush and Whisper White.  The top layer is stamped with Concord Crush ink with the Butterfly image from Punch Potpourri (a Hostess level one stamp set).  I love the dimensional result the 3 layers give it!  Like it's ready to fly off!!

Dawns Stamping Tips - using Rhinestone Jewels
There are so many great things about the Rhinestone Jewels!  First off - you get 150 pieces!  But you actually get more than that, because there are 3 rows of 21 "connected" rhinestones too!  You can use them connected to create borders OR you can snip them into the sizes you want. Which makes your jewels last even longer!! 

On this card - I snipped the connected rhinestones into two's and used them for the body of the butterfly!  Love the look!!!
