Stamping Things That Make Me Smile

Booth Butterflies!

Hey you guys! Thanks so much for all your kind comments about the knee yesterday — made me feel so happy! And so glad that it’s getting better, really missed all of you!

Now as promised, here’s the first of several cards that I made for  Studio Calico to use in their booth at CHA — I was so honored to make cards for them as I love their style. It’s got such a fun, playful, vintage vibe to it that I’m really drawn to!

(Booth photo from the Studio Calico facebook album — check out more photos from their awesome booth here! Nifty arrow from Katrina at Pugly Pixel — love it so much!)

I love this butterfly stamp — you’ll be seeing a few more cards I made with it later, ha ha! For this version, I got out my ancient set of Crayola watercolors and colored them in, then while it was still wet I splattered them with gray. Love how they turned out, don’t you?

Here’s the set the butterfly stamp is from, it’s called Calico Borders!

And the paper is all from the new Classic Calico collection 6×6″ pad — that book paper is so versatile, I want to use it on everything!

I stitched the butterflies on with silver metallic thread, added some bling and that was that!

More tomorrow,
