Butterfly Shaker Card

Hi Everyone,

I am playing with this month  Memory Box challenge. The theme is shaker cards. So I pulled out my underused big butterfly die from Memory Box and turned it into a shaker. 

I really like this die - I should use it more often...The pretty sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers (Mix Mash set)

I am also linking up with:

Time Out - Birthday
Inkspirational - going with challenge  #23 - orange, star fruit, melon
Seize the Birthday - CAS birthday
HLS - anything goes with HLS stamps (sentiment)

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing.
