Beautiful Butterfly

I hope you are having a great holiday weekend - we are continuing on the rounds of graduation parties and enjoying the chance to catch up with family and friends.  Hot weather has finally arrived in New England - it's been in the 80's here.

Last week I showed you this stack of intricate butterflies.  They were made with something new that Mandy at Scrappy-go-Lucky sent to me to try out a little while ago.  The photo at the top of this post is a sneak peek at a card I made using one of the butterflies.  You can read all about the card and how I cut the butterfly on the Scrappy-go-Lucky blog - just click HERE to see the full post.

  1. Very pretty butterflies! I'll have to see if I have anything close to it on any of my cricut cartridges. I looked at the site for the dies but it doesn't give US prices or shipping.

  2. Very pretty and so intricate, the card is stunning.

  3. 80. It was 102 in Central TX. HOT I will just have to spend the rest of Spring and then Summer inside. The best place of course is my hobby room.

    Looks like it is going to be a beautiful card. When are we going to get to see the whole thing. I know that you are only teasing us with a beautiful corner.

    Seriously Diane, I love your creations and YOU have helped me so much. Keep up the great work and a special THANK YOU for sharing your creations.

  4. What a beautiful card! It has such a simple design, yet it is really gorgeous! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Diane,
    I love Spellbinder dies, but ran across these Cherry Lynn Die-namics dies a few months ago. I purchased several, and love them also. I love that they are made right here in the good ole USA. I will never give up my Spellbinders however, but am truly glad to have added these to my collection. Spellbinders has a few butterfly sets - one that just came out in their Summer Surprise group. Although I still think that there are prettier butterflies on several of the cricut cartridges and they can be sized to fit any need.

  6. Looks like a pretty card! I like the layered butterflies.

  7. Diane: I received my beuatiful butterfly and flowers in the mail this week as a result of participating in your blog play-along a couple weeks ago. THANK YOU! I was excited to see the butterflies in this post. I have today set aside for doing some scrapping since it is my kids' last day of school and who knows when I will get a day to myself again!
