Just For You


I just have to tell you that when I saw this Stampendous stamp at the store, I knew right away that I would have fun using it.  Can you just imagine it as a background stamp - maybe tone on tone?  Or embossed as a background?

I chose to do a focal image for this card.  First I stamped it on a piece of white cardstock and then again on some pink patterned paper.  I cut around the patterned paper image very loosely and then adhered it over the cardstock one.  I LOVE the way it turned out.  I did add a little glitter to Ms. Butterfly because everyone looks better with glitter I think.

Because this image was so pretty on its own, I didn't want to do too much else to the card.  I just used a small rectangle die and its corresponding scalloped rectangle die (both from Spellbinders).

The papers and the ribbons I used are all from PaperTrey Ink.  The paper collection is called Text Style Pink Patterns.  I have owned this paper for a while now - but they still offer it on the website.  It is so cute all layered upon itself I think.

Adding in the black accents just said COMPLETE to me.  So I stopped.  And I think I like it!

I'll see you back here tomorrow with another Stampendous creation.
