Butterfly Wishes July 13, 2009

Isn't this pretty I love butterflies and could watch them for hours I just got all the Martha Stewart butterfly punches so you'll see more cards with butterflies. Wendy Weixler has a thing for butterflies and I watch her blog alot she designs for several companies and you can find her blog on my sidebar. This card was made using the new Rich Rasberry, Pale Plum
and Cottage Wall DSP. I used Satin Ribbon and the scallop edge punch to make the scalloped windows and placed a 1 inch square of Rich Rasberry in the center of it then I put ribbon around the butterfly to create the illusion of its body and antenna's. This card is 4 X 4 which is an unusual size for me but I'm breaking in another new toy I bought which I'll tell you about real soon.
My second card today is kinda plain and I know it needs something else I just haven't figured it out. I first thought a flower but then nixed it because of the circles, anyone want to comment I love comments! This is Bermuda Bay my new favorite color & white cardstock from SU. Yes I'm a lover of SU cardstock its so thick and the textured cs is also excellant. I don't use alot of the SU inks because I use Amuse Ink for my images that I color with my Copics so.... Anyway the stamp set is Circle Circus and has lots of pretty circles to choose from, I have the word window punch and got the Modern label punch just the other day I use it all the time.

So whats your new In Color or for that matter your favorite color? Let me know I love reading the comments you all leave and it makes me feel like someone is paying attention. I'm off to my studio to convert more of my stamps to unmounted. I am going to devise a system to categorize them on Excel, if anyone knows of a program out there for stamp organization please let me know.

Have a blessed day!

Granny, love your cards. Now I've been working on a system for stamp organization for oooohhhhh like 18 months, lol.
Hey, left you a blog award on my blog - hope you don't mind :-) but your blog deserves it.
