Why do you love Butterflies???
For me butterflies are not just beautiful, but they also mean that intrinsic transformation we all go through as humans. And we do it from the day we are born till we pass on. Butterflies just do it in a much quicker manner, so we get to see the beauty of it. How lucky are WE to so so much beauty?
Being fortunate to love this crafty industry we get to see so many pretty products…. papers, stamps, stickers, you name it, they are out there. There are so many beautiful quotes about Butterflies, too and they all speak of transformation. Here is a favorite of mine by Maya Angelou, which you can find in the Inspired By Butterflies (My Favorite Things) stamp set
We delight in the beauty of the butterfly
but rarely admit the changes it has gone
through to achieve that beauty.
I could go on, but let’s get to the cards. My first one is made with Butterfly Beauty and the pretty Bella Doilies set by Unity Stamp Co. I used this week’s Mojo Monday 181 sketch and some very lovely Bo Bunny Gabriella papers. I also used MFT’s Mini Rolled Roses , Layered Labels and Dizzie Doily Die-namics. I clear embossed my doily stamp and butterfly on white card stock, and painted it with Creative Imaginations Twinkling H2O’s. I so love how it resist the embossing, so the image just pops. My sentiment was stamped on Creative Imaginations Real Wood cardstock, which is super FUN to work with. Also, do you see the pretty leaves? That is a Samantha Walker Silhouette die cut, which I cut out of white card stock, so I can paint it with my Twinkling H2O’s to the color I want!
Hope you liked my cards and now let’s get to the FUN part. So, as you read on top, this idea started out just as a little hop, but I am so excited to tell you that there are
GIVEAWAYS TO WIN!!!
14 LUCKY WINNERS!!!
So what can you win??? And how can you win? I am offering my own little prize, which actually is a card kit of mine. It’s actually a gorgeous full of Prima and Ippity goodies. A while back I taught a class at my local scrapbook store (at the time) and I have one kit left from that. In the kit you will find very detailed instructions on how to recreate my cards. It was a sold out class, so I think anyone would enjoy this little kit. Everything is cut up, punched and stamped for you, ready to put together!
Before I continue, I just want to say THANK YOU Laura, Angela and Kim for your generosity as I know you will make some crafters really, really happy!!!!! I really appreciate it!!!
