Beautiful Butterfly Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~ Hope you had a great weekend! I spent mine cleaning my stamp room by pulling all retiring stamps, dies, folders … you name it. I love being more organized and knowing that I can’t grab a “retired” set. One of my faves that I was happy to see carry over into the new catalog is the Brilliant Wings and Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set.

How about inking up those beautiful butterflies in Night of Navy and stamping them onto Balmy Blue cardstock (I like using the Stamparatus here) and then die cutting it with the Rectangle Stitched dies before mounting it onto your card base.

Stamp another set of butterflies with Momento ink onto Basic White … then pick out your favorite butterfly and color it with Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Stampin’ Blends… die cut and mount over vellum. That just draws your eye directly to the beautifully colored butterfly – now that’s a focal point!!

Thank you for dropping by today …

Have a beautiful Monday!

Simply Sunday: Just a Note

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I have been busy in my stamping studio preparing for my Spring Stamping Retreat … and totally missed yesterday’s post, sorry! I do however have a cutie for you today. A card that can be shared with a friend or family just to say hello.

If you watched my Tuesday Night LIVE last week then you should recognize this flower ….

This is the flower from the Hand-Penned Petals demonstration that I colored. I used Mint Macaron, Daffodil Delight and Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends to color them. I couldn’t let that pretty little thing just sit there, and it was so easy to pull together this card.

My card base is Basic Gray and I added the addition to the black & white polka dot from the Pattern Party Designer Series paper (a host reward). Then a doily from the Heart & Home collection in the Mini Catalog. It’s also the theme for my Stampin’ Retreat: Heart & Home!

I popped up the greeting and the flower with dimesionals, and speaking of greetings … the “Just A Note” comes from the Flowering Flowers stamp set.

I love that this card is mainly neutral and then our flower gives us that pop of color to really draw your eye in. The greeting was punched with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch and then added one of the black Classic Black Dots to finish it off.

Thank you for taking time out to of your day to check out my blog.

You have a wonderful day ~
