Creative Design Boutique Blog Hop

Are you ready to see some new stamps? It's time for Creative Design Boutique's Blog Hop, and all six members of the team are excited to bring you some goodies! And, there's BLOG CANDY!!!



Butterflies are some of my favorite images. This set, Flutterby Delight by Rita Marie and Company, has three butterflies, some flowers and several “bugs” that are all lots of fun! For my card I stamped one of the butterflies and the caterpillar, using Versafine Black Onyx, embossed with clear embossing powder. After masking the butterfly and caterpillar with images stamped on Post-It notes, I sponged the clouds using a scallop circle and a sponge dauber. I then colored them with Twinkling H2Os so that they shimmer. I cut the leaves from a Sizzix die and added the primas and brad. I figured the caterpillar dreamed of being a butterfly one day – thus the sentiment, which I put on using sticker letters.

All images may be found at Creative Design Boutique.

Make sure you visit ALL of the blogs of the Creative Boutique design team, leave comments on ALL 6 of the Blog Posts; and a winner's name will be chosen from those posts on Thursday, August 6, and posted at 6 PM.
