Skipping Stones Designs

Skipping Stones Butterfly Dreams

I am so thrilled to announce that I am the guest designer this month at Skipping Stones Design!! Heather has stamps that range from hilarious, to darling, all the way to elegant. And, they are good quality stamps!! Thanks so much, Heather!!!

I stamped this butterfly from Healing Wings onto text patterned paper. I bent the wings upward and glued only the center of the butterfly down. I held it in place for a minute, but with the Tacky Glue from Elmer’s, it didn’t take long. The row of red pearl flowers are from Jenni Bowlin.

Skipping Stones 4-6 Butterfly

Part of my duties is bringing you a sketch to use this week and each week for the month (Tuesdays). Pop on over to the Skipping Stones blog and see what the rest of the ladies created with this one. I based this sketch on my card above. Have fun with it! thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Stamps (Skipping Stones Designs-Healing Wings), Patterned paper (October Afternoon-Thrift Shop), Cardstock (Papertrey Ink-Rustic White, Pure Poppy), Ink (Clearsnap Colorbox Chalk Creamy Brown, Stewart Superior Palette Dark Chocolate, Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black), Gems (Jenni Bowlin)
