Butterfly Flourish

I generally don't buy those cheap £1 stamps you get in the local craft store, but I was buying some for the kids at school to use in my after school card making club (they don't get to use my own expensive stamps!) and really liked this butterfly flourish one so bought one for the kids as well as myself. It actually stamps quite well, just doesn't emboss too well as there is so much detail in the actual flourish. Might try using it again with just plain stamping next time.

Anyway this card is for ColourQ's Challenge #208 with one of my fave combos, SC454 for the sketch and Just Add Ink's Challenge #184 to use bows.

And here's my card with lots of dots!


Stamps: Six Sided Sampler from Stampin' Up, Butterfly Flourish from Hobbycraft

Papers: Raspberry Ripple, Confetti White, Night & Day DSP (Retired) all from Stampin' Up

Inks: Raspberry Ripple from Stampin' Up, Versamark

Accessories: Raspberry Ripple Stitched Satin Ribbon, White Embossing Powder both from Stampin' Up

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I like your card Vanessa!! A fun flourish butterfly and I like the polka dots too.

  2. This is why I love card challenges, I get to see what everyone else creates and that raspberry ripple and black look great together! I'm loving the polka dots and a perfectly finished card with the raspberry ripple bow! Louise - JAI Design Team xx

  3. The polka dots really appeal to me, too, Vannessa - and this is a lovely colour combination. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink. :)

  4. Oh yes what a pretty butterfly! I really like how you have popped that bow on as it works perfectly there :)

  6. Lovely card, Vanessa, love your butterfly! So happy to see you at the colourQ again, thanks for playing.
