New Butterfly Basics!

Santa was very good to me this year, and somehow he knew EXACTLY what I wanted for Christmas!  One of the items on my list was the new! Butterfly Basics stamp set.  Amy O’Neill, our host for this week’s sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches, gave me the perfect opportunity to ink it up with her fabulously fresh sketch…

FMS168 AmyAmy’s sketch provides endless options for stamp sets, and after narrowing it down to about 10, I picked Butterfly Basics for a super-duper fast and easy card.

FMS168-Butterfly-Basics-BirThis card is so “full”, yet it is all done with stamping, no DSP.  Just wait until you see the supply list for this card.  It may be the shortest ever!



Be sure to check out the new feature below!  If you go all the way to the end of the list of supplies, you’ll see a link for a printable PDF Supply List!  You have to click on it to see how cool it s!  This table is provided by “My Stampin Blog” and is a wonderful tool to help you to easily access the products in my online store by simply clicking on either the photo of the product or the link beside it.  The downloadable supply list also provides links.  I love it and hope you will, too!

    Hi Cindy…..I had some friends over and played quite a bit with this butterfly stamp set…..I just keep looking at how gorgeous your butterfly came out. And looking at your supplies I still can’t figure it out. Did you white emboss this on the elegant eggplant cs? Just gorgeous. I see you have blender pens in your supply list, I assume that is the yellow around the edges of the butterfly. For the life of me I cannot figure out how you’ve come up with such a beautiful, well detailed butterfly. (ours today did not come out so well) (SU embossing powder – in the past, I’ve not liked SU embossing powder, the early espresso powder did not melt quite right) Thanks for your help. – simply gorgeous.

    Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some
    overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    amazing blog!
