I love monarch butterflies and love making them whenever I can and the two sets I used today are perfect to use.  I first stamped Butterfly Essence to create my background and then stamped the individual butterfly from Hello Butterflies on scrap white card stock.  After coloring using prismacolor markers, I cut it out and popped up over the background before stamping the saying, layering and popping up using dimensionals.



Enjoy the Hop. Come back each day. We hope to inspire you to start your own Bugs and Butterflies projects.  Get to work on the tutorials, show us what you made by May 13th and

Today's card was made using a couple of my favorite sets: Pansy Riot and the Swallowtail mini.  After stamping the pansy background, I then stamped the butterfly on scrap white paper before coloring using prismacolor markers and cutting out to pop up over a silk prima flower.  To finish things off, I added a metal saying and some clear dew drops.

Today I am sharing a card using my favorite technique - scenic stamping by combining a couple of different sets: Dragonflies and Marsh Birds.  After stamping all of the images I had decided to use in memento black and coloring using prismacolor watercolor pencils, I stippled some Tim Holtz broken china distress ink along the bottom for the marsh water.  Once that was done, I then stippled some tumbled glass along the sides and top for the sky before layering the colored panel and adding it to a green card.

Today I am sharing one of my favorite techniques - scenic stamping.  I just love combining several sets and seeing how they come together.  

I started out by stamping the background of my card in garden green ink using the trees from News From The Woods.  Once that was done, I stamped the bear from North American Woods and the pine trees from Bow Hunting in memento black ink before coloring using prismacolor and copic markers.  Once that was done, I then stamped the birds and grass from Scenic Selections in memento black and Tim Holtz forest moss distress inks before stippling broken glass and garden green around the image panel.  The only embellishments I added were vintage brads and dew drops for a rustic feel before adding my saying from North American Woods

Today I'm sharing a card made with Bow Hunting and North American Woods stamp sets.  I started out by stamping the pine tree in basic grey ink onto matching card stock before stippling the ink around the edges to help "age" it; then stamped the saying.  Once my background was done, I stamped the main wolf image, colored using copic markers before stippling basic grey ink around the edges then layering and added brads.  A very clean and simple masculine card that's perfect for a guy any age.

Today's card I originally made with my dad in mind until it hit me that my dad's not around anymore to give to him.  This was his kind of humor.  So dad, here's one made in your memory then using a wild buffalo.  

I started out by stamping a background using the wheat from Buffalo Spring in Tim Holtz walnut stain distress ink onto some cocoa card stock.  I then stamped the main image in memento black, colored using prismacolor markers and stippled Tim Holtz corduroy distress ink around the edges to "age" the image a bit before stamping the saying and also "aging" with corduroy ink.  After adding vintage brads, my card was done.  I kept it pretty clean with no frills for a masculine looking card.
