WATERCOLOR TRIO SUMMER MINI SWAP

Happy Hump Day!! I have been stamping away getting ready for two workshops this weekend, my canvas class on Thursday and my downline meeting, which was last night!!! So much fun, but not a lot of blog time, LOL!  We had a great time at our meeting last night! I had asked all the gals to make a card that featured products from the Summer Mini for a Shoebox Swap and I was blown away by the talent!! I have a couple more gals that could not make it last night, but  are sending their cards so once I have them all, I will put a slideshow up so you can see how beautiful their cards are!! I thought I would share the card I made for the swap featuring the Watercolor Trio Set and the All A Flutter single butterfly stamp - ooh, I just love this stamp, such a pretty butterfly! I also used my Frost White Shimmerz on the Chocolate Chip Scalloped Square (cut it on my Big Shot) and the butterfly and I just love the sparkle!  I stamped on Naturals White and distressed the edges with my distressing tool, then sponged the edges using Sage Shadow, which I will greatly miss since it is being retired *sniff* - I just love how soft and pretty this color is!  I stamped the leaves in the same color, then added some flowers stamped in Soft Suede . The designer series paper is from the set called To the Nines and I love how thick and textured this paper is!! I added some Very Vanilla ribbon, stamped and sponged my sentiment with Soft Suede after punching it out using the Scalloped Oval Punch. The butterfly is stamped in Soft Suede as well, then colored in with my Stampin' Write markers, and spritzed with the Frost White Shimmerz - soooooo pretty and sparkly!! I am happy with how this card turned out and the girls loved it, which brought a smile to my face!!! It was fun to see all the different styles we have for stamping - so many gorgeous but totally different cards.  So, now I am off to finish prepping for my class tomorrow but first I am going to go and check out some of my fave blogs - yep, YOURS, LOL!!!! Thanks so much for stopping by, your comments are fabulous and I read them all!! I will be back tomorrow to share another card I made for the meeting last night - it is a fun one, so make sure you check back!!! Toodles!!
