Color Dare #186

It is the day after a busy Easter weekend so time to relax and play with three colors!  I used only Gypsy, Lagoon and White Daisy which was a challenge in itself!  Teamed with one of my favorite stamp sets "Your Own Kind of Wonderful" D1627.  Color Dare #186.

I used second generation stamping for the smaller butterflies and also the Lagoon back of the larger butterflies.  Tone on tone was used for the Gypsy butterflies on the border.  Lesson learned - I can create a card with just two colors on a White Daisy card!!!  Can You?

Enjoy Life's Moments!

Hello Spring!

Spring has arrived and the flowers are starting to bloom.  March wind is still present and the temperature has not been that high but warm weather is on it's way by Easter weekend.  Perfect...

With that in mind I went out with my camera this afternoon and took these pictures and turned them into a page print.  I didn't find many that were open but these few make me happy!

 My mind then went to butterflies and I got out a stamp set I have not used much and made this card for the Color My Heart #185 blog challenge.   These colors scream SPRING!

I used the top four colors with my inks and Glacier and Topiary card stock to back my image.  The triangles punched with the Triangle Border Punch so that the Topiary would show through.

I didn't want to cut out the antenna of the butterfly so I stamped it on a second time and fussy cut it out, minus the antenna, and sponged the wings with Sweet Leaf, Glacier and Cotton Candy ink.  The area around the butterfly was sponged with Sweet Leaf and a little bit of Cotton Candy ink.  The center of the butterfly is the only part that was attached so that the wings could stand up a little for added dimension.  Three pink dots balanced off the design and all was added to a layer of Cotton Candy Fundamentals paper.  The stamp set is retired Paper Bird Hostess Reward stamp set.

There are a lot of great Hostess Reward stamp sets so why not have a party?  Book, Home or even Facebook!  I would love to help you earn some great products! 

Same design, different paper...along with one Crazy Bird from Tim Holtz.

Don't forget that this is Stampaganza Month.  Buy two get one FREE! and The Stamp of the Month is super cute, especially if you can get it for $5!

Remember to stop and Enjoy Life's Moments!
