Working on some masculine cards, I never seem to have enough of those. Bronc Buster is from 2007, paired up with some retired designer papers.

Flamingoes seem to be all the thing lately. This one is from Hero Arts and it has a matching die cut frame. I mixed it with Stampin' Up!'s Tropical Party in Pink Passion, Curry, Olive, and Tangerine.

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).

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.

I was in the mood to color so I stamped Stampin' Up's Birthday Blossoms flowers and leaves on Whisper White and colored with alcohol ink markers.

Any way, should you ever have the misfortune to drop a camera, cell phone, whatever, in the water, proceed as above and then bury it in a bowl of rice (uncooked, of course) for a day or so to dry it out. It worked for this camera and this picture was taken with the cleaned and dried camera.
So about the card. I bought some Tim Holtz distress crayons yesterday and experimented with them on some watercolor paper. (I'm sure this would work with the Stampin' Up crayons as well). I went over the inside of the butterfly with coordinating color markers to bring out the image a bit more. Fun to play around with for a washed background effect and the watercolor paper gives it some texture.

So Sweet and Tags
My favorite new thing is the big pineapple. I fell in love with this warm symbol of hospitality and welcome from my visits to the beautiful South. Must. Have.
Today I made a card using some unknown unmounted flower stamp that I came across. Colored it up in Copics and added a die cut Spellbinders sentiment. Embossed card base is Whisper White (SU).
My yearly ongoing project is assembly line tag production for Christmas gifts. I found this Sizzix snowman set with coordinating dies at Tuesday Morning and couldn't resist.
