Butterfly Kindness

Hello everyone! I hope you all survived the full moon AND Friday the 13th! Whew! Sometimes the full moon affects my sleeping but last night I was able to sleep fully! Ahhh!! I really needed that! We had been watching the Rockies on TV and then we switched to our local news but the hockey game was still on. So we watched that. What a game!! It's always heartbreaking for the losing team because you know that they were fighting just as hard. Anyway, we finally went to bed before the news came on. And it looks like my Rockies ended up winning! Woohoo! That would have been a good game to watch as they were behind when we turned it off. Today we will be watching more World Cup soccer! So fun! And Nick's coach had the boys fill out a bracket so that makes it even more fun! I can't believe that is where we will be next week!

Today's card is the last of my cards that I did for stamp club this month. I do think this is my favorite stamp set! I just love it! I used an older sketch from Retro Sketches to help with the layout and then used the colors from the Moonlight designer paper.

  • Card base is Lost Lagoon
  • Round the bottom corners of a piece of Moonlight designer paper and adhere to a piece of Lost Lagoon card stock
  • Adhere a strip of Basic Grey
  • Round the bottom corners of a piece of Hello Honey
  • Stamp the sunburst from Kinda Eclectic in Hello Honey onto the Hello Honey card stock
  • Use the Basic Grey and Lost Lagoon markers to ink up the sentiment and stamp over the sunburst
  • Adhere stamped panel to the other panel
  • Tie a piece of Lost Lagoon stitched satin ribbon around panel and adhere to card base with dimensionals
  • Stamp butterfly image onto Whisper White card stock using Lost Lagoon ink and punch out with the Elegant Butterfly punch and adhere to card
  • Punch a butterfly from vellum using the bitty butterfly punch and adhere to other butterfly
  • Add rhinestones
There you have it! Don't forget that the Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection Preview Week starts tomorrow! Be sure to check each day to see all kinds of fun goodies! I do hope you take advantage of their Early Bird pricing! I hope to see you there! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
