you inspire me...

Hello from the snowy Pacific Northwest!  We are getting more snow than we have had in ages!  Hopefully it won't hang around for long, lol!   With all the snow staying inside and crafting makes a lot of sense.   So I think that is what I will be doing all weekend.  First up is a card that I made the other day for several challenges:  Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash, Color Throwdown and Freshly Made Sketches.  I recently took advantage of a 15% off sale that Reverse Confetti had to buy the Mod Floral Stack stamp and die set.  I used that set to create my card (along with small stamps from two other RC stamp sets).    The smallest mod floral stamp was used to create the butterflies.  I stamped the image twice in red, orange and yellow and then die cut them.   In order to make the butterflies I trimmed one of each color in half and then adhered the pieces to the back of the other intact die cut.  To make the body I used a solid floral image from the Petals 'n Posies stamp set, stamped it three times in black and then trimmed out the portion I needed.  The bodies were then adhered to the butterflies.  I used another image from Whole Lotta Thanks to add in the little dots here and there in red, orange and yellow.  The butterflies were adhered and then I added the sentiment that I stamped in watermark ink on black cardstock, heat embossed in white and then trimmed out.



Hope you have a wonderful day... that doesn't include snow, lol!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  MFT white, Stamps:  Reverse Confetti; Dies:  Reverse Confetti and A Jillian Vance Design; Inks:  Stampin Up! Read Red, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, VersaFine CLAIR Nocturne and VersaMark watermark ink

Fun butterflies, and great use of those stamps! And crafting during the snowstorm? Me too! We're getting hammered over here in the Columbia Basin -- a literal snowdrift up to our front door!
