Butterflies & Blogs Hop

Today we are celebrating the last year that Laura will in her 20s, I guess she is getting starting to see the what is in store for her in the 30s, I am sure it will be filled with excitement and adventures. Happy Birthday Laura!!!! If you came hopping along the butterfly and blog trails from Sarah's Live, Love and SCRAP then you are on the right path and if you stop to see what I am doing today I would encourage you to go Laura's Makin' Pretty Things and join us in the hop, there are 29 hops that will be celebrating her birthday. I am sure you will see lots of beautiful projects, wonderful tutorials and maybe along the hop get enter in drawings to recieve some fabulous giveaways. I made two birthday cards both using the My Minds Eye 6" x 6" Stella Rose Hattie collection along with SRM Stickers. On my first card I used my notebook paper punch to create my notebook look edge paper.

I stamped one of the pieces of paper using an Inkadinkado Stamp (91034) and Memento Black Ink. I added a Tim Holtz metal clock hand to the clock face.



I took my Inkadinkado Stamp and stamped the large and small butterflies twice onto a piece of the blue paper that is in the paper stack, fussy cut them and glued one of each onto my stamped imaged that I had previously stamped. I then took the last two butterflies folded the wings up a bit and painted them with the Distress Crackle Paint, allowed it to dry and then glued them to the top of the blue butterflies. This gives my card great dimension.


Again, my second card is made from the paper from the same stack. This time I used the Tim Holtz Filigree stamp along with the Stampers Anonymous Papillon Stamps.

I did my butterflies using the same technique as above only with the Papillon Stamp and Memento Black Ink. Both of my SRM Stickers Birthday stickers are on pop dots. I added a 2" scallop circle along with a Prima Bintage Trinket to the front of my card.


I hope you enjoy my birthday cards and continue the hop by going to very talented Corri's Bug Lover Cards.
