Tuesday Sweet Stamps BUTTERFLY theme, hooray!!

10 May

It’s a new week and that means a new theme for the Challenge up at Sweet Stamps Blog.

This challenge was exactly up my alley, since I love to work with butterfly images.

I used the stamps called:

Curly Butterfly

and 

Butterfly Kisses

When I am working with an intricate image, I love to take the time and really try to bring out all the detail.

I was so excited to work with this GORGEOUS stamp.

I stamped out the base (on the mustard cardstock) and almost wanted to stop there.  The stamp is really that pretty.

But, I went ahead and kept going.  I used lots of patterned cardstock and paper pieced this breath-taking butterfly.

I added lots of shimmer and glitter with various products, including the

PEARLESCENT WATERCOLOR PAINTS.

I also decorated the inside.  The faint lower half is for writing a message to the card recipient.

Oh, and of course I used the brand new Cheery Lynn Designs Dies.  The ones I used on this card are:

MINI EXOTIC BUTTERFLIES &

RIBBON EYELET BORDER WITH PIERCING

I have to say, this butterfly might be my favorite stamp so far.  The possibilities are endless with it.  

I can’t wait to make another and see what path I go with it next time.  Maybe solid glitter?  Solid beads?  Who knows, but I will show you when I am done.

Now, this is a super easy challenge this week.

Head on over to the SWEET STAMPS blog and read the entry rules, make a card with our new theme:

BUTTERFLIES

and be in the running for the $20.00 gift certificate at the Sweet Stamps Store.

Just think of the stamps you can buy with that.  Make your shopping list after you  post your card.  Have fun with this great challenge.
