Butterfly Basics for Mojo Monday!

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics card idea by Mary Fish StampinUp Demonstrator blog

What, me water coloring with the Stampin’ Up! Gal stamp set?  Yes, indeed!  With a touch of ink and a Blender Pen, this pretty floral image is quick and easy to color.

Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge MOJO408

This week’s Tall & Skinny Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO408) was the inspiration for my 6″ x 3 3/4″ card design!


  • I created a custom sized envelope using the Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board and Neutrals Envelope Paper (one of My Favorite Things).

  • The envelope sizing for a 6″ x 4″ card (measurements on the punch board) was the best fit for my 6″ x 3 3/4″ card.

  • That touch of bling!  I used Stampin’ Up! Rhinestone Basics Jewels for a little bling on the flower center and butterfly.

  • The sentiment and butterfly (coordinates with the Bitty Butterfly Punch) are also from the Butterfly Basics stamp set above.

  1. First I want to congratulate you on all of the awards you received – loved seeing you walk across that stage and saw you walking down the halls deep in conversation with your buds! LOVE your card….wow….fabulous – TFS!

  2. Hi Mary
    I no longer have a deminstrator.
    I found out when I logged on.
    I live in Maryland, I was wondering do I have to have a deminstrator that also lives in MD, or can I use you?

  3. A very clean and classy card, Mary. I love the simple touch of color and twine. I purchased the Aqua Painters last Spring and love the ease and results I get. You really must try them.

  4. I loved this so much that I had to run right up to my craft room to CASE it! I don’t have the new DSP, so I used the green leaves from last year’s Painted Blooms DSP and it turned out so pretty. Thanks for all your wonderful ideas.

  5. Mary, thus card is beautiful. I can not believe you are not a pro at watercoloring. I your work is so beautiful. I am waiting for your video tomorrow. Have a great stamping day. Hugs, Ellen Hinds

  8. Mary, this is absolutely a work of art!! Can hardly wait for your video tomorrow. Looking forward to when you share your talents with us with the Aqua Painter too!

  9. Ha. Ha. Ha. You hit the nail right on the head. I am a color phobic. (A secret . . . I’m also a heat embosser phobic.) Looking forward to your video tomorrow.
