Awesomely Artistic Friend

Good Morning, Stampers!

My first creation using the new Awesonely Artistic stamp set and it IS awesome!! It came together so easy and it's all just one layer! Stamps, Washi tape and a bit of Silver Glimmer paper. I topped it off with a bit of Bermuda Bay Sequi Trim and a fussy-cut dragonfly. Quickly becoming one of my new fav's!!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July, Stampers and Happy Birthday, America!

A traditional red, white and blue with stars are a great combination for the Independence Day holiday, but I took it a step further and added the butterfly so it can be used for any event in July. Of course, it never hurts to add a bit of bling, too!

Stamps: Floral Wings, Remembering Your Birthday
Ink: Real Red, Night of Navy
Paper; Real Red, Night of Navy, Whisper White
Accessories: Star framelits, Bold Butterfly framelits, Washi Tape punch, Basic Rhinestones, Mini Treat Bag thinlits, Stylish Stripes embossing folder

Kind Butterfly

Good Morning, Stampers!

There is so much to love about the new Watercolor Wings stamps set! It's 3-step stamping couldn't be easier and the color combinations are endless and make absolutely gorgeous butterflies. One of the great features of photopolymer stamp sets is that it allows you to shape the pieces to create one-of-a-kind designs. Here, I shaped the sentiment around the wing. A little unexpected!

Swallowtail Ensemble

Good Morning, Stampers!

Today's project is a gift set I created in memory of a special friend who passed away this past week. She loved butterflies and the color pink, so I embossed the butterflies in gold and daubed Blushing Bride ink to highlight. The sentiment is a line from a song that was special to her. A great way to really personalize a gift for someone special.




The card couldn't have been any easier. A little embossing, a die cut butterfly in gold foil paper and a simple sentiment stamped in Early Espresso ink and it's complete.

SU!pplies:
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Early Espresso
Paper: Very Vanlla, Gold Foil
Accessories: Butterfly framelits, Fluttering embossing folder
