Bloomin' Marvelous for The Paper Players

Greetings, Stampers! Is it really Sunday again already? The weeks have been just whizzing by. Today I'm here with a project for The Paper Players. Nance has a color challenge for us this week, a soft pretty combination that made me think of Spring, which made me think of butterflies!

This simple card was easy to put together with the help of the Bloomin' Marvelous Stamp Set and two coordinating butterfly punches.

The smaller butterfly was stamped with the Bloomin' Marvelous Stamp Set and punched with the Bitty Butterfly Punch. Both of these products can be earned free from Stampin' Up during Sale-A-Bration, which ends March 22. The larger butterfly was punched with the Elegant Butterfly Punch. Adhere them together, add a few pearls, and your butterflies will be ready to take flight!

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Bloomin' Marvelous, Tiny Tags
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Regal Rose, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Early Espresso
Designer Series Paper: Tea for Two
Ink Pads: Pool Party, Regal Rose, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Early Espresso
Tools: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Bitty Butterfly, Elegant Butterfly and Jewelry Tag Punches
Accessories: Pearls, Very Vanilla 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Linen Thread

Many thanks to my best Stampin' buddy in the whole world, Justin. He bailed me out of this challenge by stamping, punching and mailing the butterflies to me. What would I do without you, JK?

Inky Hugs,

I think this is just perfection in a card!! It has a beautiful color combo; depth; texture; etc. It's just a HAPPY card, and Heaven knows we need more just good old HAPPY things in our world. Thanks for bringing my today's "HAPPY"!
(sorry I deleted my previous comment because of a type-0 and it drove me nuts!!)

Sandy, this is just perfect! Exactly what I had in mind with these colors. Fresh and spring-y! Love the trio of butterflies and the sweet little tag is an adorable way to pull in the espresso. You have amazed me at what you can do with limited supplies! Great job!

Such a pretty way to showcase the colors, Sandy! Love those layered butterflies...and your new blog look, too. Although I may have already told you that. Hooray for stampin' friends who help you out in a pinch. That's so awesome! :)
