Say Goodbye to Watercolor Wings

Next year I need to count my retiring stamp sets and then decide when to start the blog posts.  Whew!  That was a lot of stamp sets.  Today I’m featuring Watercolor Wings.  Now this set didn’t get nearly enough love from me.  When it first came out, I didn’t understand the appeal but then I started seeing the incredible butterflies being created and I had to have it.  I don’t think I ever featured this set in a card class, it can be a little tricky to line everything up and I only got my Stamparatus a few months ago.  On this card you can barely see the stamped image I created with the retiring Tempting Turquoise alone but it’s pretty.  The Basic Black is coated with Wink of Stella.

And a close up of the butterfly.  It’s amazing all the faults you can see when you look at a close up.  🙂

Cheryl’s Technique Class

I went to Cheryl’s (my upline) house last night for a technique class on the iris fold and a wow card.

For the iris fold you can find templates on the web (I found this handy one) and just follow the numbers keeping your colors straight.


We used a base of Whisper White, cut a window in the Basic Black using one of the Floral Framelits, and created the iris with Designer Series Paper (I’m not sure which one) and Red Glimmer paper.

The wow card actually got a wow out of us when Cheryl opened it.



The inside pops out at you and the stamping is on the back paper.  We used Whisper White, Watercolor Wings stamp set, the Butterfly Thinlets Dies, Silver Metallic Thread, and the Wisteria Wonder 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon.  I remember one of the stamp colors was Wisteria Wonder but I don’t remember the other one.
