Cascading Butterflies

I've seen a lot of cards like this usually done with flowers and I had to give it a try.  I was inspired by my friend Holly and Brandy Cox to make this card. Thank you ladies for the sharing your cards.

I decided to use butterflies on mine.  I wanted to use wisteria wonder so I got out my color coach used the color combo from the wisteria wonder card.  Colors are Wisteria Wonder, Sahara Sand, Soft Sky, and Whisper White.  I used the butterfly from the Papillion Potpourri stamp set and punched it out with the Elegant butterfly punch and then layered it with the bitty butterfly punch. On the Sahara sand piece I cut the edge with the Adorning Accents Edgelits.  The Soft Sky piece is embossed with a retired EF.  I did not realize it was retired until I was typing this post, darn!  I added a piece of 3/4 chevron ribbon in wisteria wonder.  The sentiment is from the Label Love stamp set.

This is the Easter card I made for my kids this year.  This is so fun.  The chicks are made from the Circle punch, itty bitty flower punch, the scallop circle punch, and the owl punch.  I made the grass using the new fringe scissors.  The clouds are done using a template and sponging soft sky ink.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Pintrest CASE


Once or twice a month I get together with some friends to stamp, we have so much fun and are always looking forward to the next time we can get together.  This is one of the cards we made at our last get together.  This was a total CASE from pinterest.

I don't really have much to talk about today.  Took the day off work and I haven't gotten anything done.  I have so much to do and I can't seem to figure out where to start.  Anyways I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.

Pleasant Poppies

These are a couple of Sympathy cards I made this week for 2 different friends.  I used the same set Pleasant Poppies and water colored one with Primrose Petals and the other with Raspberry ripple.  Love the new In-colors from Stampin Up!  I used 2 different framelits from the Apothecary Accents set.  On the bottom of the top card I used one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits (love them) and the other one I used one of the Adorning Accents Edgelits.  The ribbon is just some of the Taffeta Ribbon in very vanilla which I sponged with the matching in-colors to get the color I wanted.  The sentiment is done using a stamp from the Petite Pairs Stamp set and punched out with the new Ticket Duo Punch. The very vanilla layer is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Folder.  Well thats it for me tonight.  Thanks for stopping by.   Feel free to leave a comment, I would love to hear what you think.
