Xyron + Paper Smooches

We're stamping up some fun with a
this week!  Be sure to start with the Xyron Blog

I've created two projects for today's hop using 
Paper Smooches' "Giddy Bugs" Stamp Set.
My first is a card that I paper-pieced using a few stamped
images and different patterns of paper:

To begin, I selected some fun prints from DCWV's "Honey Chic" paper pad.
I stamped the notebook paper with the butterfly image and
Momento Tuxedo Black ink.

I chose purple dot print for the wings, lime diamond print for the body and a 
lilac woodgrain for the face. Each print was stamped with the image and Tuxedo Black
ink and then carefully cut out with micro-tip scissors.

The pieces were then made into stickers with the 1.5" Xryon Sticker Maker.

Next, I took the stickered pieces and dressed the butterfly.
After finishing the butterfly, I cut out around the design with an oval die.

I use the 1/4" High Tack Adhesive tape to layer the card pieces together, as well as 
a way for adhering the strip of ribbon to the cardfront.

My next project is a quick and easy water-colored fridge magnet using the same
"Giddy Bugs" stamp set and papers by Lawn Fawn:
I stamped the bee image onto a white textured cardstock with black Staz-On.
I used three different shades of yellow Aquarelles water-color pencils by 
Faber Castell and a blending tool by Stampin' Up!

I stamped the bee image onto the blue paper and then layered on the cut-out.
I wanted to make the base a little sturdier, so I die-cut the same size circle as the blue
paper from a medium weight chipboard.  I added adhesive to the back of the blue
paper and then adhered.  Finally, I added two strips of 3/4" Magnet Tape to the back.
Now it's ready for hanging!

Enjoy today's hop!  Your next stop for today is Yvonne Yam's Blog.
