Blessings Flow!

Happy Monday, everyone!  I had so much fun cruising through Laura O'Donnell's gallery yesterday, since she is the Featured Stamper at Splitcoast, that I had to make a second card!  I chose this beautiful CAS (clean and simple) card to case (copy and share everything)!  The design of Laura's card was so simple, yet so clever, so I had to give it a try!  This week's Shining the Light Challenge at Our Daily Bread designs is to use three ODBD stamps on the front of your card, so I used "Large Scrapbook Words", "Blessings", and the "Butterfly Single".

The "Blessed" stamp from the "Large Scrapbook Words" set was inked in Tangerine Tango and stamped three times in a row for a gradient effect.  The sentiment from the "Blessings" set was inked in Stazon Jet Black and overstamped so that the words underneath could still be seen.  The "Butterfly Single" was stamped, then cut out with the custom "Butterfly Die"....check out all of the matching dies HERE for some of the stamped images at Our Daily Bread more fussy cutting....let the custom cutting dies do all of the work for you!!  The butterfly was colored using a Tangerine Tango marker (Stampin Up), then I used a Signo gel pen to create white markings to make it look like a Monarch Butterfly.  The center of the butterfly was glued directly to the card base, but each wing edge was popped up with foam tape to give extra dimension.

Card 'Ingrdients':
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Large Scrapbook Words', 'Blessings', and the 'Butterfly Single' stamp;
Cardstock: Stampin Up 'Confetti White;
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Stampin up Tangerine Tango, Signo Gel Pen;
Accessories: Our Daily Bread designs custom 'Butterfly Die', corner rounder;
Size: 5-1/2 x 5-1/2.

I have also used the following challenges in the making of this card:
Craft Your Passion: Things With Wings;
Pause, Dreamy, Enjoy: Three Things (3 stamps);
Paper Playtime: Anything Goes Plus a Sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a very blessed week!!!

Your card is beautiful Angie. I love the way you colored the butterfly, and the way you stamped the phrases looks really nice. It adds so much more than just stamping the sentiment alone.
