Big Shot Butterflies

Here is a card that I made for one of our group meetings (we swap with other demonstrators and get great ideas). I used Kiwi Kiss card stock and some patterned paper from the Occasions Mini called a Walk in the Park. The butterflies are cut from my Big Shot and I tied 1/4" grosgrain around them to make bodies and antennas. The verse (butterfly trail) is in the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set. Finally, I used the scallop edge punch to divide the patterned paper from the card stock.

Trendy Trees

I love the new Trendy Trees stamp set. It has been around several months, but is new to me because I just mounted my set. I used the Top Note Big Shot die to cut the white card stock and green pattern paper (from the Walk in the Park DSP). I used Kiwi Kiss (one of the current In Colors--only available for one more month) and Chocolate Chip ink. The blue DSP is from the Pacific Point Patterns collection--also an In Color available through June. This was a fast card to make and my favorite that we did at my April Stamp-a-stack. My next stamp-a-stack is June 18th--contact me for more info.

About time

Well, it is about time that I get back into gear and post more cards. Sorry that I took a break, things just got crazy. I'm afraid that I overdid it a bit when I posted a lot of samples on some days, so I'll try to keep it to one a day so that things are a bit more spread out and consistent.

This is a card that I made for my mom for Mother's Day. The verse that is the butterfly trail says "one person can make such a difference and that person is you" which I thought was perfect for my mom. I used Pretty in Pink cardstock, Pink Passion ink, the Flight of the Butterfly set, the scallop edge punch, some pattern paper from last year's catalog, and Sage Shadow ribbon. This card was simple, but I love how it turned out.
