Butterfly Stamp

The "Texture" stamp from Kaisercraft called Flutter was intended for adding texture in mixed media. It is so pretty that I decided to use it as a focal point for my card.

I stamped it twice and cut out the butterflies to layer on top with some Stickles Stardust added. 

The narrow stamp needed something else. I layered it behind cardstock colored with Salty Ocean Distress Ink and added an Anna Griffin flourish stamp to each side.

See the great grid texture on this layer? That is a piece of the DCWV Woven 6 by 6 paper pad. There are white and kraft sheets in the pad. I used whited and colored it by putting Salty Ocean ink on the mat with a spritz of water and wiped the paper through it. 

Love the texture.

You can get the supplies I mentioned at Scrapadabadoo.

Happy Challenge from Scrapadabadoo Crafts FB Page

There is a fun sketch challenge over on the Scrapadabadoo Crafts FaceBook page.
The challenges are just for fun and change every two weeks. (That gives me time to think of a project and actually get something made. LOL)

I used some leftover papers and embellishments from the Teresa Collins You Are My Happy line. The background papers are from one sheet in the 6 by 6 pad. That black and white striped piece is really the decorative strip from the top that usually gets cut off. The white paper with the hearts is just the other side of those fun scalloped layers.

The striped flag and the adorable elephant flag were already made and came in one of the embellishment packets. I made the third flag with a sticker that I trimmed down and a toothpick. The only toothpicks we had were colored so I just painted all the picks black.

That heart brad is just too cute!
The card came together really easily and is now ready to send a cheerful hello to a friend.

The Teresa Collins You are My Happy is on sale right now at
