Butterfly Dress


I was inspired by a pretty card that I saw at the Papyrus store in the mall of a dress made of butterflies, had to try that idea for myself. This is prettier in person, the top is made of black glitter paper cut with the dress framelits die, I had such a hard time getting the glitter to show up with my camera. Cut and colored 5 butterflies from the retired God's Beauty set and attached for the skirt. I can never part with this one since I love this particular stamp so very much. The sentiment is from Flower Patch (Stampin' Up! also).

Christmas Tea


For the Merry Monday Christmas Inspirations challenge I used all retired Stampin' Up! supplies. Real Red, Early Espresso and Whisper White cardstocks with an older Christmas designer paper, Bells and Boughs, Pines and Poinsettias (sentiment), and Tea Cup and Pansies which is so old it is one of the foam type stamps. Used current brad dots and textured embossing folder. I just purchased a new pair of detail scissors and they worked well for this, quite a lot of cutting with that floral spray. Coloring and cutting is kind of therapeutic so I'm all zen happy right now :)

Night of Navy



I love the color spotlight on Night of Navy in the new Stampin' Up! catalog, it's a beautiful color that I haven't given much thought to in years. I had this random unmarked block stamp sitting on my desk and I used it to make a background, then stamped a flower from the Birthday Blossoms set colored in markers and secured with a vintage brad. Navy and white cardstocks.

Just Keep Swimming


The layout for this card is from the Just Add Ink sketch challenge this week and gave me the opportunity I was looking for to try out the Stampin' Up! Perfectly Artistic designer paper and the new Hero Arts fish set. Saving this card for when someone needs a little encouragement.

Wood Words

I was at Michael's yesterday having some artwork framed and came across these pretty cut wood embellishments in the scrapping department. I couldn't resist picking up a few packs since they were so inexpensive. The birthday ones were $1.49 for four, the owls $2.99 for eight. I already had the yellow background ready from the other day so the rest was easy!
