Butterfly Parade


This is for Verve's Mojo Monday challenge, and the sentiment is from Verve. I ordered this month's release bundle and they threw this in as a thank you-isn't it a great little thank you stamp? I really like the fonts and the size. It's just right!! Also, I won a free set this month!! I'm pretty thrilled, I'll make sure I point it out when I use the one I chose!!

The stamp and the paper here are Basic Gray, the brads are SU! The Doodlebug gems in Beetle Black are from Creative Cuts and More. You can also get the matching glitter and flock there.

I made this butterfly card first, for this week's color challenge over on StampTV. It was hosted by Carla Suto, one of GinaK's guest designers. The colors were taken from the FREE digi paper downloads GKD is offering this month. I wasn't sure I had enough ink to print them out, so I went straight for My Mind's Eye Tres Jolie, which has very similar colors.

The stamps are GKD Eclectic Summer and Eclectic Summer Sayings, both of which I think are are very versatile and a great bang for your buck. Right now you can only get them with the current STV kit. I have both kits, and could not be happier with them! Isn't this butterfly beautiful? I actually like it better than my Basic Gray butterfly above. I finished this off with a few shots of Chestnut Glimmer Mist, and a touch of Copper Stickles.

Would you like to be a guest designer for Creative Cuts and More? Now is your chance! I can tell you that Terry, the owner, is a joy to work with, and you will definitely have a wonderful experience! Why not give it a try? Check out all the deets here.
