Treat yourself to a Butterfly Bundle!

Posted on

Papillon Potpourri is one of my favorite stamp sets and until the end of the month is available in a discounted bundle together with the Bitty Butterfly Punch. When in a pinch one can make a truly beautiful card with these items.

The following card took all of a five-minutes using a simple yet striking combination of Whisper White cardstock and Crumb Cake Seam Binding and Classic Ink. The sentiment from Label Something Stamp Set completes the card.

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

Where’s my MOJO ?!

Posted on

Not quite sure what’s going on with me at the moment but there always seems to be a reason NOT to be heading down into the Studio. Which is really sad when you consider I treated myself to a LOT of pre-order products from the new 2013-14 Idea Book and Catalog and want to do a lot MORE ordering… aaaahhhh!

So what’s a girl to do when her Mojo’s low? Check out Mojo Monday of course and I have to say, I’m rather chuffed with the end result!

Mojo 296 - Thinking of You

This is the sketch from Mojo Monday for this week.


Having printed off the sketch, I knew I wanted a patterned paper as my base so immediately went to the new Gingham Garden to find something. As soon as I saw this DSP with its wonderful colors I knew it would be the one as it seemed the perfect excuse to finally attempt the ribbon wrap flowers. The Summer Starfruit and Primrose Petals 3/8″ Satin Ribbon did the job beautifully as the stripes in the ribbon came out almost like spots!

All these lovely flowers needed a butterfly of course. Papillon Potpourri is my go-to stamp-set choice at present as it has a co-ordinating stamp for each the Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly Punch. LUV IT!!! Naturally I couldn’t resist adding some Pearl Basic Jewels and Dazzling Details and have it sitting on a 1-1/4″ Circle Scallop which I’ve also added a little dazzle too!

Mojo 296 - Thinking of you - Butterfly

The sentiment I chose is from the Hostess Set Express Yourself. I think is going to be my “go-to” sentiment set for this summer as there are 12 sentiments to choose from. Now I’m not sure if you noticed in the first photograph but on this strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I’ve used a stamp from the Clockworks set and stamped it off in the Pistachio Pudding to take away the starkness of the Very Vanilla.
