Have just finished a dozen of these. Have 5 more of the Oval butterflies to complete and then expect to be finished. This one is sort of different. It is several layers, starting with Pistachio green, then alternating black and white frames. It was stamped with black memento and then sponged with Barely Banana, Blush pink, and Pistachio. I darkened the major lines and filled in solid portions with a regular Sharpie pen. Added a few fun sequins and it was done. Now to finish the oval cards and put verses in them all. Then will have 'gift packets' for Christmas plus some extras to give to the Church women to send to their missionaries etc.

This card is Cased from one on Patty Bennetts Blog. It was sent to her so she didn't have the info. However, a keen eye and a good picture..... think I got it!

I am having just too much fun with this stamp. Have been creating them with different colors and layouts. Not sure I could pick a favorite. Most are glittered but as usual it doesn't show well in a scan.

Am doing several variations of this image. Here's the first one.
The Coneflower is from an old Gina K set called Heartfelt. It was stamped with Memento Black and colored with Copics (V09, V04, V01, Y17, E35, YG23, YG95). The plain and scalloped circles and ovals were cut with Nestabilities and sponged lightly with inks. A "Score Board" helped with the placement of the lines. Flowers were affixed with Dimensionals and highlighted using Crystal Accents for Dew Drops. I used Wausau c/s in lavender and a darker shade.

Caroline, from our stamping group, taught some neat cards using this stamp at class last week. Then she was kind enough to bring it over and allow me to stamp a bajillion more of them to play with. While these are about a million miles from what we started with, these are the first two cards that I have finished.
These were stamped onto ShimmerPaper and embossed with Black EP. They were colored with Copics and/or SU ink pads and Aquapainter. Then fussy cut with the second copy of the wing placed slightly offset from the first one and raised with dimensionals. It barely shows in the scan, but the yellow background has subtle sunflowers in the right hand corner for the butterfly to land on. I used Pumpkin, Regal Rose and Real Red to color the yellow one and used Brilliant Blue and Soft Blue on the second one.

I am so thrilled with this years card. I fear the detailing won't show well in a picture, but here goes....

Found another unfinished project. Love, love, love this retired set. This is done with Barely Banana, Pixie Pink and some old designer paper. Colored with Copics, glittered generously on the flower and on the bees wings. Flower head and bee are fussy cut and attached, no dimensionals this time. This is the only one with a sentiment. For the other ones I have simply stamped an assortment of sentiments and have them ready to put in place once I decide how the card will be used.
