A Terrific Tuesday!

Hello!  Happy Tuesday!  I really love butterflies.  If there is a stamp, patterned paper, die template or embellishment that has a butterfly on it, I believe I own it!  When I saw the beautiful J-1055 Large Trailing Butterflies stamp, I had to get it.  Here is a card I made using my new favorite stamp.

This card is a 5 1/4" square.  To make the base of this card, cut your cardstock to 5 1/4 x 10 1/2" and score at 5 1/4".  Fold along the score line.  To used some Pink Paislee London Market patterned paper that I cut to 5 x 5".  I stamped the J-1055 Large Trailing Butterflies stamp onto Pugnacious Signature White Cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  I colored the butterflies using my Copic Markers - R00 & R20.  This is one of my favorite rosy pink Copic combos.  After coloring the butterflies, I felt they needed just that something extra that only glitter can give!  LOL  So I added some You're So Fine Diamond Clear Glitter onto each butterfly using Scrap Happy Sheer glue.  Once this dried, then I  cut/embossed the butterfly panel using Labels One #4 (#1 is the smallest in the set) from Spellbinders Paper Arts.  I layered the Butterfly die cut onto a kraft cardstock and patterned paper Scalloped Labels One #5 & 6  (Spellbinders Paper Arts).  After layering these together, I attached it to the card using some foam tape.

To complete the card, I stamped the sentiment from J-1095 Fabulous Phrases using black ink onto the white cardstock.  I cut/embossed this using Back to Basic Tags (Spellbinders Paper Arts).  I added some pearl bling along the bottom and on the tag. 

Here are a few close-ups.

I had so much fun coloring these beautiful butterflies.  I hope you will give this wonderful stamp set a try!  Thanks for reading along with me today.
