In the Mood!


All Supplies from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise specified. Stamp Set: Great Friend. Paper - Kiwi Kiss, |DSP Patterns - Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla. Ink - Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze. Accessories: Baja Breeze double-stitched ribbon, non-SU glitter.

In the mood to stamp, that is! I rushed home for lunch today to stamp this card . . . I even took an early lunch! Yes, I am in a Stampin' Up! frame-of-mind, for sure! Why such a 'stampy' mood, you ask? Because I am making plans with my Sparkle Peeps to attend the Stampin' Up! annual convention in August! WooHoo!

I know some of you are familiar with Stampin' Up! and their awesome events . . . the energy is amazing and the creative talent is unbelievable. It is hard for me to imagine a better 'vacation' for me and my girlfriends! (If I'm imagining a vacation for my HUSBAND and I however, that involves Italy! LOL) If you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator I HIGHLY recommend attending convention! If you are NOT a demonstrator, I HIGHLY recommend you contact me to find out how you can BECOME a demo, so you can go with me! LOL

So . . . do you like the card? It uses a brand spankin' new set from the mini catalog and I just adore the butterfly image! I must confess that I 'cheated' on this card a bit . . . because I stamped it on my lunch break, I used non-SU glitter (because it was sitting on my shelf left over from a Christmas project) instead of the 'good stuff' (which is in a drawer somewhere and would have required some effort to find). I'm still happy with how it turned out but I'll make sure I have the prettier stuff handy for my next glittery project!

I love your colors and layout. And that popped up butterfly is the perfect touch to finish the card up!

Oooh! This is so pretty! I just got that set and I am ready to use it. I will be "borrowing" your popped butterfly idea!

Beautiful! I can almost "see" the flight of the butterfly-simply gorgeous!

This card is so pretty. I never would have thought to stamp the butterflies in that way, but it works. Great accents too!!

Love the way you stamped the butterfly like that and having one popped up created such a nice focal point... gorgeous card!

Oh I love this card! The color scheme, the glitter, the layout, the sentiment... it all! And, I love that you ran home to stamp during lunch! Hee! That is too cute!!
