Spring Butterflies in Pink

I had a few spare minutes this weekend between all of the celebrating for the twins' 8th Birthday activities.  So, I decided to enter a couple of challenges over at Dynamic Duos and Friday Mashup.

Here is my card....simple and sweet, using the butterfly embosslit, the flower flourish stamp set, a button, some pearls and topped it off with a few splashes of vanilla shimmer spritz.  Can you see it? 

Here are the logos, sketches and color palettes for this challenge.  I did, however fail to read the fine line and I didn't use my brayer.  :(  Sorry for that!  But, it was fun to get involved this week!

Happy Stamping,

Gift Set

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we are doing a color challenge.  I love these bright many possibilities.  I decided to make an altered notepad and pen set. 

This is the inside....I used a Staples brand notepad that measures 8" x 5" and added a strip of DSP to cover the label.

Here is a closeup of the paper flower.  I used both the large and small scallop circle.  I wet them, crunched them up then layered them up and got this look: 

Instructions on making the notepad/pen set:
Score an 8" x 12" sheet of cardstock at 5", 5 1/4", and 11".
Fold in the 11" score line and adhere down.
Crease the other 2 scores and this should be the perfect size for the notepad.
I made a 1" loop for the pen and adhered it to the NOTEPAD then glued the NOTEPAD down into the folded cardstock cover.
Decorate it all up as you like....easy gift set!!

Happy Stamping,
