Beautiful Butterflies!

Today I wanted to share some of the cards from my recent round of classes.  As you read this I may well be at Wendy’s completing round 3!  If you want to get some friends together for a private class then get in touch and let me know. 

The theme for these classes was butterflies – and what a lot there was to choose from when I was planning!  I have to say that a lot of the inspiration came from pinterest so thank you very much fellow ‘pinners’. Today I am sharing my six cards, apologies for the pictures it’s been really grey and miserable and getting a good picture has been impossible :(  Over the next few days I will share some of the attendees cards, the subtle differences can make such a change to the card :)

This first card uses the beautiful Swallowtail stamp, it’s a lovely big image, and so much more versatile than I first thought.  I’ll do a post on the technique if you like, leave a comment and let me know and then I can put a little tutorial together.

This next card showcases the gorgeous Pappilion Pot Pourri, co-ordinating punch and the piercing template too!

Now a little blue number, I love Baja Breeze and will be very sad when it leaves us at the end of June.

And finally, this bright and cheery one – don’t you just LOVE the coloured glimmer paper!   Again if enough of you comment, and let me know that you’d want it I will post a tutorial on how I have achieved this effect.

That’s all for now, come back very soon for some news about the full retiring list.  Happy crafting!
