Friend's Birthday Card

I created this card for friend, Pat, who is a designer shoe lover!  When I saw this stamp set in the Stampin' Up catalog, I knew it was a must.

I colored the images with pencils, popped the butterflies and added bling.  Pretty simple and straightforward.      I'm missing my stamping (and grandchildren) while travelling.  Can't wait to see everybody when we return in  time for Easter!

Thinking Spring!

I recreated this card from a class I recently attended at The Stamp Shoppe.  I changed out the stamps and the colors.

First cut a butterfly die three times and place on white cardstock.  Then use three colors of  Memento Inks and sponge onto the cardstock.  Remove the dies and stamp with the solid butterfly stamp randomly on the cardstock.  Then stamp, color and die cut another butterfly and mount onto the background you just created.  Stamp the sentiment, die cut, emboss and sponge with ink.  Mount on the cardstock and add a little bling.  The butterfly stamps and die are from Prickly Pear and the sentiment is from Fiskars.
