Skipping Stones Designs - Best of Butterflies

Hi Everyone,

today I have the pleasure of showcasing this wonderful  new Skipping Stones Designs set called Best of Butterflies.

Aren't they all just gorgeous?

I settled for the sideways butterfly and stamped him once the right way and then turned him around. makes him a little asymmetric, but lets call it art....right? 
I water colored him and added Wink of Stella and lots of white gel pen dots. Did some splattering. The sentiment is from the same set. Added white dots to the little banner I added for balance. 

In case you can't read the sentiment it says:

Life is not measured by the number of breath we take, but by the moments that take our breath away

Happy Stamping!

Perfectly balanced with the splats and dots. What a fun way to use the butterfly stamp, always so very creative. Beautifully coloured in and the black against it is so striking x

I just had one of those breath-taken-away moments, Cornelia ... what a stunning butterfly ... shimmery and beautiful ... against the splattery background it looks as though it's fluttering! LOVE the sentiment! Hugs, Anita :)

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
