Beautiful Butterflies Day Three

Hi there! Just stopping in to provide you with a couple more samples of my new stamp set Beautiful Butterflies, which will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink beginning February 15th.
First up, a card featuring a pretty color combo of Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet and Summer Sunrise (one of my go-to combos). Using a single image from Beautiful Butterflies, I stamped a row along the left side of a Rustic White card base.
Stamped a sentiment onto Rustic Cream cardstock, trimmed and attached with dimensional adhesive. Finished the card off with a Berry Sorbet button and a ribbon bow.
How about some single layer goodness?! I pulled out a couple of the tiny butterfly images for this one.
Here's How: I started by punching a 2" circle from a large Post-It-Note. Placed it onto the Rustic White card base and stamped butterflies around it in Aqua Mist.
Removed the punched circle and stamped inside the first butterfly circle with a second butterfly images, using Canyon Clay ink. Here's a tip: When stamping the inner circle, pay close attention to keeping the distance between the inner and outer butterflies the same as you make your way around.
Then stamped a larger butterfly within the center of the finished butterfly circles, using Summer Sunrise ink. Finished the card off with stamped sentiments from Think Big Favorites 13# and Lighten Up stamp sets (both available February 15th) using Smokey Shadow ink.

That's it for me today! I hope you enjoyed today's projects and don't forget... I'd love to know what you think, so please share!

Now, be sure to visit Nichole Heady for peeks at Sweet Spring & Scrambled Eggs. Also, Dawn McVey, Lisa Johnson, Beth Silaika & Melissa Bickford have peeks to share with you of their newest sets for the month.
