The Butterfly Basics stamp set is one of those sets that I knew I had to have. It was immediately at the top of my wish list back in December for demonstrator pre-order. Not only because of the butterflies, but the pretty foliage stamp, the flower, sentiments, and the hexagon background stamp! Well, that's pretty much the whole thing - so I guess I love all of it! I like to sit down with my new stamps and just play and see where my imagination takes me.
One of my co-workers was having a birthday at the end of January and I wanted something nature inspired and pretty, but not over the top. She loves nature, flowers and does a lot of Horticulture Therapy at my work as part of our Therapeutic Recreation department. So basically this card is perfect for her! Nature everywhere :) Plus, it's a nice punch of colour to brighten these dull, wintery days.
This card was pretty quick to make. Nothing fussy, mostly stamping. I chose softer colours, Wild Wasabi, Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Soft Sky. I stamped the foliage stamp several times - only re-inking ever other stamp for a softer look. I chose to only stamp the corners opposite each other and then have the butterflies fluttering through the middle. I first stamped the small butterflies, then stamped again in a different colour - punched them out and popped up for some dimension. It's hard to see, but the background is stamped with the hexagon background image - you know how I feel about hexagons!! Love them :)
I hope you like my card, have a great day!
