Hello blogging friends! Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. I know it has been forever since I have had a SSRS post--about a month. But with some recent health issues it has set me back a bit. One of my medicines was increased and I am starting to feel a little better--it's just not happening as fast as I would like lol. But the good news is I am having longer periods of time throughout the day that are somewhat tolerable so I am able to do some creating.
We still have snow on the ground here in Minnesota but it is only March so who knows we could still have a snow storm or two but I am ready for Spring! Nothing says Spring more than flowers and a butterfly. :) To create the butterfly I used the new stamp set from JustRite Papercraft CR-05009 Multi-Step Butterflies and Flowers and VersaMark Pretty Petunia, Spring Pansy inks. Then I lightly inked the edges of the butterfly with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Broken China. To die cut the butterfly I used the DIE-05010 Multi-Step Butterfly Dies.
For the die cuts in the background I used DIE-05019 Elegant Garden Label Dies along with Bazzill Gold Mirror Cardstock, white, and lavender cardstock. I used Therm-O-Web Foam Squares in between the layers to add some dimension. To create the vines I used green cardstock and DIE-05017 Stitched Oval and Vine Dies. Then I added a couple of flowers from the Petaloo Botanica Collection Pink Minis and Prima Serenade - Turquoise Flower. I adhered all of the pieces to a white card front and then a lavender card base. I used Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and one of the sentiments from the CR-05014 Sweet Flowers and Vines clear stamp set to stamp Happy Birthday in the upper left corner. To finish off the card I added Ranger - Glossy Accents and Stampendous Crystal Glitter Multi Ultra Fine to the butterfly, vines and flowers. I love all of the sparkle!
Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed the card!
