Fluttering By

Hello friends!  Have you already seen a couple of different styles now on my blog?  LOL!  I’m trying to get one on here that I think I would be comfortable with for a while…so far I’ve settled on this one! 🙂

So I’ve been “outta the loop” for a while and feel a bit rusty, but I thought the BEST place for me to start is with some of those card kits that I keep on hoarding and then it just sits and never gets used…so I’m going to stop hoarding and start using!  Besides, all of the contents are already right together and you can’t go wrong with that, right?!

So I’ve pulled out an April 2018 Simon Says Stamp card kit  (sold out) with some butterflies and thought it would be great to work with!  I needed some “pick me up” cards that I’m sending out to a couple of fellow crafty friends who need a lift in spirit and hope this will help send a smile their way:


This card was simple as I just used some papers from the kit, colored the images with my Copic markers and attached to design.  I colored some white glitter paper with a yellow Copic to get that color above the patterned paper.


This is probably my favorite one as I love the pop of black everywhere.  I used some of the Mermaid Lagoon Oxide ink from the kit to ink blend, distress with water and then added the Copic colored butterflies.


This one was inspired by Sheri Carrol’s card design.  I obviously like her design better, but I find it amazing just how different a design can turn out from each person.

I saw that the Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop just started today (Yay!) and so I hope to be back later this evening with something fun for that!  I haven’t played in challenges for a while and it’s always fun to create using some fun themes!

Hope you’ve enjoyed my butterfly cards today and please let me know if you’ve stopped by so I can see what everyone is doing!  Would love to know how you are!

*Don’t forget to share a smile today!  🙂

I would like to enter one of these cards into the following challenges:

  1.  Simon Says Stamp Wednesday – Use More Than one Stamp
  2. QKR Stampede #297 – Anything Goes!
