I love to stamp, I love to create, and I love spending time with my crafty friends! A new stamping technique that I've never tried before? Oh! the laundry can wait!...
Besides creating, I keep busy with my two very active little munchkins, as well as working part time as a dental hygienist. And, I love hanging out with my super smart doctor husband once in a while, too!:)
The stamp set, "Simple Friendship", had been on my wish list for a while, now, and when I realized it was 30% off this month (click on the "shop now" button to view the special -- sorry my sidebar button doesn't work), I just had to get it! I challenged myself to use Concord Crush -- one of our current In Colors. I really do like this color, just never seem to use it. The butterfly in this set is lovely. I haven't had time to play yet, but I also envision a card stamping this butterfly in Poppy Parade and layering black and poppy butterflies on top using the Beautiful Wings embosslit. It would make a really elegant red and black card... When I have some time to play, I'll give it a try. :) Until then, these will have to suffice. The colors used here are Concord Crush, Perfect Plum and Wild Wasabi. I colored some of the Basic Rhinestones black for the butterfly's body, and purple for the flower centers. A little paper piercing in the corner to add interest, and plenty of Dazzling Diamonds glitter accents -- applied with the two way glue pen.
