Birthday Butterfly Basics

The challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a sketch challenge.  I have to catch up on birthday cards and decided to use the Butterfly Basics stamp set and framelits.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this set!  I took inspiration from the card on page 26 of the Occasions catalog and the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I used the colors of Calypso Coral, Pistachio Pudding, Hello Honey and Island Indigo.  I used the Butterflies Basics and thinlits die along with Papillion Potpourri stamp set and coordinating punches, Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly punches.

Stampin Up Birthday Butterfly BasicsI stamped the leaf foliage and flowers followed by the dotted background stamp from Gorgeous Grunge.  The honey comb images are from the Butterflies Basics stamp set, as well as the sentiment. Here’s the sketch tht also inspired my card.

Fabulous You

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color challenge to inspire you.  The colors are Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade.  So pretty!

These colors inspired me to use the Fabulous You stamp set.  I had not used the stamp set and it was perfect for a card I had in mind.

I love the shoe image which I inked up with Versamark and Island Indigo and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I used the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack to create the flowers.  For some sparkle I added the rhinestones.

Join us at Hand Stamped Sentiments and show us your color inspired project.  I can’t wait to see your creation.

Audrey Hepburn lives on

One of my friends is having a milestone birthday and she is thinking she should be at a different point in her life.  I think she is smart, courageous, good friend, wonderful daughter and great mom.  Her birthday is on Saturday and I wanted to send her a card that would make her realize just how fabulous she is.  So I thought about when I want to feel and look good and I always reach for a little black dress whether it be a casual sundress or an elegant cocktail dress.  When I put it on it makes me feel elegant and beautiful just like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The little black dress is a classic.  It never ages it only gets better, just like Audrey.  Here’s to Audrey and my friend.  I hope she has a fabulous birthday.
