Butterly Garden

One of my favorite new Verve sets is Petals & Stems, so I thought I'd show you another card that I made recently using it.

Remember I told you yesterday that I am on this new blue and green kick? Well, looky-looky, another blue and green card (and can't forget to mention the black I added.....see how it makes the blue and green just jump out?????), fancy that.

I stamped a bunch of different flower sizes in Brocade Blue and Old olive, and then layered them together using dimensional tape. Each flower was outlined using my Stardust Gel pen. The flower "vines" were stamped on Whisper White using Old Olive ink.

Since typically wherever there are flowers, butterflies are not far behind, I was sure to include a few butterflies flying around the flowers! I really let the stamps do the talking on this card, so there isn't much other "stuff" muddying up the front. Just a simple straight stitch around the main image using my Janome Sew Mini is all it needed to finish it off.

Speaking of Verve, Julee has an AMAZING sale going on right now....all Verve sentiment sets are 10% off, through June 23!
The other big news is that lots of exciting things are taking place behind the scenes over at Verve, so Julee needs to clear the place out of all non-stamp merchandise to make way for more, more and MORE stamps! So, while supplies last, all non-stamp merchandise is 35% off!!! Yikesarooni!!! 35% off????? Julee wants this stuff GONE ladies, and she needs your help to do it, so rush on over there and pick up some supplies today! Remember, it lasts only as long as there are supplies on the shelves, so if you've been putting off buying some paper, or adhesive, or some shiny rhinestone "bling", nows the time to do it!

Today is the boys last day of school for the year. Youngest Son is at Valleyfair, the local amusement park with his class, while Oldest Son is suffering miserably taking some hard finals in school. They are both so excited to be done! Today I have a luncheon with the local NBC affiliate at the Interlachen Country Club, home of the 2008 US Women's Open. The Open is June 26-29th at Interlachen in Edina, MN. I wonder if I can sneak in a practice round while everyone else is lunching? Sounds fun to me!!!
