Rainbow of Butterflies

Hi there!

I'm quickly sharing a couple of cards I recently created using some new Simon Says Stamp goodies. I haven't had a whole lot of time to create and am heading off to work soon but wanted to get these two cards posted.

The first one uses the new SSS Butterfly Drift Die.


I cut out the butterflies with regular, white cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the inlay die-cutting technique, added a bit of Wink of Stella and white pearls on the three larger butterflies. So easy and quick! That sentiment is from the new Butterflies clear stamp set. 


The same techniques were used for my next card.



I love the new Tall Flowers Die! So fun to play with! The sentiments are from two different, new sets. "Just for you" is from the Summer Garden set by Mama Elephant for Simon Says Stamp and the "just because" is again from the Butterflies set.

Okay, gotta run! Busy, busy week at work. I am loving all the beautiful spring plants and bouquets coming in. My department is so full of wonderful color and fragrance! If I have time, I'll try to take some photos to share.

Thanks, as always, for your visit. I so appreciate it! Have a great week, and an early Happy Easter to all! ♥
