Leave a comment on this blog post by Friday 4/19 for a chance to WIN the new butterfly set!

AWESOME!!!  And since I'm on the design team...I got 'em a little early to play with! GIT-R-DONE!!!!

I used the new Say it Big set along with the Coveralls Background Stamps -Dogs on my first card...

I inked up the words with different colors. Colored in "ciao" with a marker. Then I stamped three of the dogs from the background stamp, colored and cut out. To make the twine match, I swiped the ink pad across it -- the same blue pad I used to ink up "guten tag".

The finishing touch was a little orange rhinestone on the dogs collar, clear glaze on their noses and a "woof" dog tag that I metal stamped and punched out. FUN STUFF!

 The second card I used the new Butterfly Trio set and part of a sentiment from the  Everyday Sayings set.

I colored the solid butterfly with distress markers and then stamped.  Then I stamped the detailed butterfly stamp on transparency, trimmed and adhered just the center (bodies). After the glue dried, I  creased the wings up...just slightly...for dimension. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!

I decided to make a short video showing how to stamp the butterflies with markers.  It's so easy...and the results...AMAZING!  Check it out...

NOW....last but not least...something for dessert!

Your doggie card is adorable and I love the effect you created on the butterfly card. Thanks for the video on coloring them. I haven't ventured into Distress markers yet.
