Ornate Blossom "MASK"

Just a few cards ... couldn't help myself - using the Ornate Blossom this "out of the box" jumped out at me so put it on a card - changing the colors and adding bling pearls or crystals (didn't have any with me on vacation) I imagine it as a masquerade, mardi gras, or Halloween mask.

Recycled Butterfly

Been busy with remodeling projects around house (workers and dust everywhere) so haven't had time to really stamp for weeks. In an effort to downsize the clutter, I have been remounting 10 years of stamps I just couldn't part with and have been cleaning out my craft room. What to do with all those clear boxes the sets came in and retired designer papers I seem to be hoarding .... well here's what I came up with - Recycled Butterflies ... with command adhesive or velcro on back can be mounted to just about anything, like your work computer screen to brighten your day, or in groups on a wall. I have lots of retired paper and plenty of plastic so will be making a lot of these for my upcoming craft fairs. Cut up and ran the clear plastic through Big Shot with Exclusive Stampin Up Butterfly die (can use any clear plastic found as packaging around most items we buy these days) - die cut retired Designer Paper the same - used Crystal Effects to adhere paper to plastic butterfly - ran the combination through machine with the Elegant Lines embossing folder ... needed more so cut up used Coke cans and ran them through die cut to get the smaller butterfly and embossed that with same folder .... Crystal Effects and mini silver beads add bling to edges. I have some antenae to add I just have to find where I put them! Enjoy.
