BUTTERFLY BLOG LINKY PARTY


Welcome to the butterfly blog linky party.  So much fun to make a project with BUTTERFLIES.  I have SO many wonderful Unity butterfly stamps . . . so, it was easy to do a card with LOTS of butterflies. 
I made this card using Basic Grey paper, vellum, Stampin Up ink, the Stampin Up butterfly embosslit, pearls by Bazzill, and felt ribbon from my stash.  The stamps are from three different Unity sets.  The quote is the butterfly becoming stamp; the fabulous butterfly tree is from the June 2010 kit of the month: "Fly Free" - I had to purchase this kit of the month just for this tree---LOVE it!  The butterflies flying away from the tree are from the November 2010 kit of the month "Picture Perfect".   This card was so much fun to make - love the colors of this paper and then getting to use my favorite stamps . . . just can't get much better than that! 

 
This is a card I made using some LUSCIOUS paper by Prima.  Very easy card - I just stamped the "bounded hearts" stamp onto some Bazzill cardstock, using Stampin Up ink, and cut them out.  I attached them using foam tape to pop them up.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the "Insightful Meadows" set by Donna Downey.  LOVE this card - it is so beautiful and was so very simple to make.  The paper was so yummy that you just let it be the center of attention.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the cards I made. Please leave a comment letting me know what you think of these cards.  All comments are read and treasured.

These are beautiful, Marilyn! I really love that first one where you paired the butterfly tree with the group of flying butterflies. I never would've thought to do that!
