Bermuda Bay Dragonflies

I made these dragonflies using the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits dies. I used the die which is a chain of dragonflies. Then I cut a couple of them from the chain.

Indigo Butterfly

On to another series of cards. With this series, I will be focusing on the Butterfly Basics stamp set. Because it is not a two-step stamp set, it required quite a bit of fussy cutting (which I find relaxing).

Ink - Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, Island Indigo, Rose Red
Card Stock - Rose Red, Whisper White
Accessories - Bold Butterfly Framelits (138135)

Flower Jars

I must admit it, I find fussy cutting relaxing. I used the Everyday Jars dies for the two jars, but some of the blooms I cut out and attached with dimensionals. I also enjoy the look of flowers extending beyond their borders.

Box of Flowers

Wouldn't it be nice to send a friend a box of flowers? This one is even tied up with a bow and has a cute butterfly fluttering about. Because the blooms and the stems are two separate stamps for each set of flowers, it makes it easy to make the blooms stand out.

Stamps - Hardwood (133035), Wild about Flowers (138728)
Ink - Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Soft Suede, Wild Wasabi

Balloon Bear

Baby Bear is such a cute stamp all by itself. Adding Balloon Celebration just takes it up a notch. Baby Bear is a three-step stamping process and the balloons are a two-step process. Because the stamps are clear photopolymer, the process is very easy.

Stamps - Baby Bear (141859), Balloon Celebration (140675)
Ink - Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Melon Mambo, Pacific Point, Rose Red, Soft Suede, Tempting Turquoise
Card Stock - Melon Mambo, Whisper White
