Butterfly Thanks

I've been doing a LITTLE bit with some "card parts." I found this strip of patterned paper already stamped with the "Thank You," which is from a Stampin' Up! set. I also had this card base already cut and sitting on my table and I had just taken the package of butterfly stickers (from Martha Stewart) out of one of my sticker drawers. All I did was put them all together! This card is 4 x 6 inches.

March Calendar Page

Ah, March! Maybe it will warm up now! :)

Here is my calendar page for this month. I cut out all of the circles (for the fifteen calendars) with my Cameo Silhouette. The stamps I used (the one in the circle and the one at the bottom) are both from Studio G. I colored the clover with a Copic marker. The patterned paper is from Recollections.

Butterflies For You

A very simple card for today. A while back, I tried something. I ran my black cardstock through my Xyron machine and then used a Memory Box die to cut it. That piece has been sitting on my table for a long time. I finally used it on Thursday to make this card. It worked really well! You can't see it in the picture, but I scored four lines on the left side. The "for you" is from a Penny Black set. This card is 4 x 6 inches. A friend gave me a pack of cards and envelopes, and this is from that pack. Thanks, Kris!

Happiness Always

This previously-stamped piece was in my "card parts" pile, so I thought I'd use it. I had stamped the sentiment a little bit crooked, but I just trimmed it down so that it was straight. I mounted the panel on Dimensionals. I embossed the background with a new-to-me folder from Darice. When I saw a friend use it, I "had" to have it, too!:) (Thanks, Vicki! This isn't the only folder you've made me buy!) Oh - the stamps are from Stampin' Up! I colored the image with markers and "thumped" on a darker color before stamping.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Color Swap - Green and Burgundy

I made this card for the Color Swap in my stamping group. The colors are green and burgundy. The burgundy cardstock looks more black in the picture, but it's Baroque Burgundy.

I brayered Mellow Moss ink on to a Spellbinders Impressability, then used my BIGkick to emboss (deboss) the design. I cut the tag using a Spellbinders die. I stamped the sentiment from Papertrey with Baroque Burgundy ink. I mounted the sentiment on Dimensionals.
