Butterfly Hello

Hello Sweet Crafty Friends!

I am so excited to share my first project with you today using Lisa Horton Crafts products!

Tomorrow is the day!! Lisa will be on Create & Craft TV at 1pm UTC sharing her new products!!  They are sooooo amazing!!

I'm a huge sucker for butterflies, so I am very excited about the new EDGEcuts Collection Butterfly Flourish!!

I used the largest butterfly shawox from the set to die cut the window for this shaker card:
I then used the middle sized butterfly die to die cut from a piece of vellum.  I added to the center of the die cut shadow.  I really love the look!!  

I added some new pearls to the butterfly!!
I used the new Mermaid Tails: Lilac Set for the lovely glitter inside my shaker card!  I love the new Mermaid Tails!!!  Yummy!!

The designer paper used is from the new Capri paper set!

The stamped 'Hello' is part of thew new In The Loop stamp set!
Along with all the fun new products, I am also super excited about some fun new stencils coming soon!!!

I was going to get out some paste and created a fun background, but decided I wanted to keep it elegant and not take away from the butterfly, so I thought it would be fun to use the stencil to emboss my paper. These stencils are so thick and create an embossed background so beautifully!!

Here is a look at how to use the stencils to create an embossed background:

I used a Big Shot, so this may slightly be different between machines, I'm not sure.  But don't be afraid to experiment and have fun!!  That is exactly what I did!

Open the main plate to TAB 1 and place in your Big Shot, add a cutting pad, your stencil and then paper:

Then add your crease pad and another cutting pad:
Run it through your Big Shot!  
Use those muscles!! 

So easy and fun!!!

*Note I've learned from another crafter that if you lightly spritz the cardstock with water before running your sandwich through the Big Shot creates deeper embossing.  I did not do this with this piece, as I mentioned before these new stencils are made with really nice thick material and I didn't think I would need to spritz the cardstock. 

Here is a look at the cardstock:
How fun is that?!

So nice to have multiple uses for your supplies!  This new stencil I used is called Pennies in a Line!!

Have a lovely day!  
Be sure to tune into Create & Craft TV tomorrow for a look at all the NEW products!!!
