Stamping with Hunter

I love sharing my stamping time with Hunter. She always has great ideas and can really think outside the box. Hunter and I sat down together today to make Birthday cards. There are lots of family members with Birthdays this time of year!  She chose to make a bold, vibrant card and I chose a subtle one.  Here they are:

Butterfly Birthday

I have been having so much fun with the new Butterfly Thinlits that I started thinking about the other butterfly dies I have.

Simply Wonderful Sketch!

This week, Pals Paper Arts has a sketch challenge (PPA236). I knew instantly that I was going to love this layout – I am a banner girl 🙂  In this card, I cut strips of Flashback DSP and used the Hexagon punch to create the flagged ends.  For the sentiment, I stamped it, added a strip of Beach House Crushed Curry Washi Tape, then ran it through the Big Shot with one of the Chalk Talk Framelits.  Here’s my happy banner card:


Stamp Set:  Simply Wonderful (Sale-A-Bration)
Cardstock:  Smoky Slate, Pool Party, Whisper White, Flashback DSP
Ink:  Real Red
Lovelies:  White Bakers Twine, Beach House Washi Tape, Brights Candy Dots, Arrows Embossing Folder, Best Year Ever Accessory Pack (Sale-A-Bration), Hexagon Punch, Chalk Talk Framelits
