Quick Papillon Potpourri card and Potting Stand makeover


It's great being able to stamp and punch great looking butterflies! These were all stamped in Rich Razzleberry - the middle one was stamped on Daffodil Delight card stock - and punched with the Elegant Butterfly punch, then pearls added.



This was one of my 10-card class designs. It uses the Fancy Fan Folder on the Whisper White card front, and the Apothecary Accents Framelits on Floral District dsp. The butterflies are adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Quick update on the laundry detergent I made the other day: Love it! It does just as well as the store-bought stuff I have for my HE washer.

Now for my potting stand makeover. I got this off of Craigslist for $30.

Before


After


I sanded the wood, and threw away the old, broken wooden knobs, and wiped down all of the metal. I used Heirloom White spray paint for the body, and black paint for the wood top and drawer supports. I found the black paint for a buck on my flea market travels with Kim yesterday! I took the bench seat out of my van, so there was LOTS of room. We had so much fun, and came back with my van full of furnishings and littles (most were Kim's).



I want to say thanks to my sister, CB, for the advice on paint colors. I love it! I used Stampin' Up!'s Timeless Portraits fabric on the drawer fronts, and finished them off with real glass antique drawer knobs and fabric inside.


Now that this project is complete, it'll be moved to my Stampin' Studio, where it'll hold all kinds of crafting GOLD! lol

Happy Stampin'!
