Coming Your Way

Happy Saturday!  I'm so glad the weekend is here and it's been a great one so far!  I started the morning off with a little stamping.  I'm in the middle of a little re-org in my stamp area, and I came across this leftover piece off cardstock I'd stamped with the butterflies from Blue Skies.  I couldn't bear to throw it away, so I decided to make a quick little card to use it up.

I cut the stamped kraft background into three 1.25" strips, then layered onto a 4" piece of Early Espresso so that there would be a thin border between each strip.  Next I punched the bottom edge of the espresso paper with a wavy border punch, then tied a bow around the panel with some early espresso striped ribbon.  The sentiment (also from Blue Skies) is stamped on a Blossoms Nestabilities die and I popped up the large Blue Skies butterfly, colored with Copics.  I finished off with a Cherry Cobbler mat and an ivory card base.   When I asked Mark what he thought of the card, he said it was one of my best ever.  See why I keep him around?  He's such a sweetie!  :)

Hope you're having a fabulous weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. simply stunning, those colours, especially on kraft :) YUMMY!!! My new stamps arrived on Thursday and I must say I just LOVE them...I don't want to put them down...I don't like to play favourites...but they are my favs right now :)

  2. I'm drooling on my keyboard, Julee!!! You know my address - hint, hint LOL!

    Just LOVE this card!! The colour combo is fabulous and that wide striped ribbon is amazing!! Love how you stamped the butterfly on the kraft. My kind of card :)

    Border guys were playing the the stamps again because I just got mine today! Can't wait to ink them up! It's like Christmas in July :D

  6. Your hubby is right- this card is stunning. Somehow, though, I now have a craving for chocolate covered cherries (the good ones, not the icky ones they mass produce at Christmas time). :)

  7. Fabulous card Jules! I loooove these butterflies stamped on Kraft, I'm addicted to doing that!

    Mark is such a sweetheart, I definately see why you keep him around;) Billy says the same things, mostly because he knows I cook the dinner, lol!
