About Me

My photo
I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Thinking Of You.

Hello stampers,

I hope your week has started off well. It's a pretty busy one for me, but come Thursday evening, I'm done until the Wednesday after Memorial Day!

Sunday evening I made this card using the new Paper Players Challenge. Nance is the hostess this week with a fun theme. Clean and Simple Butterflies. I combined a couple of different sets to create my card.

My card is a one layer card, although I did die cut the butterflies and pop them up with foam tape. The branch with flowers are from a set in the upcoming SU 2017-2018 catalog called Colorful Seasons. I stamped the flowers, masked them off, then stamped the branch. The butterflies are stamped with Distress Oxide inks onto watercolor paper and cut with the corresponding dies. (Butterflies and dies from Reverse Confetti). While it's difficult to see in the photo, I used a Wink of Stella glitter pen over the butterflies to give them some sparkle. A few sequins was added for embellishments.

Here is the inside:

Branch, flowers and sentiment from SU and tiny butterfly from Reverse Confetti.

Loved Nance's challenge this week! Lots of pretty cards in the gallery too.

Have a good rest of the week and thanks for looking in today,
