DOstamperSTARS Challenge #185: New Blooms & Wishes

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Home Sweet Home" challenge. 

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #185-Home Sweet Home

Ah, butterflies...always a great inspiration!  I'm doing a card at my next Stamp-a-Stack class featuring the Work of Art and Basic Butterflies thinlits (June 28th).  So I thought, I may as well get my sample ready for that and knock to things off my to do list.

Butterfly Card Details:

  • Stamp image from Work of Art on a 4" x 5-1/4" panel of Whisper White.
    • Use new In Colors, Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum.  
  • Die cut butterfly (Butterflies Thinlits) from center of stamped images
  • Stamp greeting (new Blooms & Wishes) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink

At this point, the stamping should have been done.  But...when I stamped the greeting, I must have caught the edge just a little bit and a small black dot was stamped too.  Drats!  As I was short of time, I decided I needed a way to cover it up (rather than start all over).  So I continued stamping, incorporating it into the center of some flowers...clever, huh?

  • stamp additional images from Blooms & Wishes stamp set
    • daisy = Peekabook Peach
    • leaves = Flirty Flamingo
    • use Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to add centers to the rest of the flower ( they all look the same!)
  • Staple Whisper White Bakers Twine to panel and tie in a bow.
  • Adhere stamped panel to 4-1/4" x 11" folded Thick Whisper White cardstock
  • Adhere die cut butterfly in the cut out space with Stampin' Dimensionals (just in the center of the butterfly)
  • Attach Basic Jewel
  • Enjoy!

Not exactly what I had imagined, but it's definitely bright and cheery, don't you think?   

Enjoy~Dawn O
