I am so happy that the stamp set I used for my card today – Butterfly Basics – will be in the new catalog!  I was inspired by Dawn Griffith’s card in the First Fridays Blog Hop last week and decided to try my hand at creating a card which focuses on  one color.  I tend to like bright, colorful cards so this was something new for me.  

I love purple and the Elegant Eggplant card stock is one of my favorites but sometimes the ink can look a bit too dark.  So, before stamping onto my Whisper White card stock, I stamped off onto a piece of white computer paper.  The color that I achieved doing this was exactly what I wanted.  

All of my stamped images are from the Butterfly Basics set, including the sentiment!  I randomly stamped around the paper and then added the sentiment towards the bottom using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added pearls to the center of the flowers and the butterflies.  I normally don’t use a product that you can’t purchase but I did make this exception.  Our Basic Pearls are no longer available but they will be back in the new catalog, just reconfigured (I haven’t seen them yet but I believe the sizes of the pearls will be different).  

If you have this stamp set and give this a try, I’d love to hear from you and see the card you created! 

All of the products I used to make my card are listed below!

I’ll be back with another card using this set tomorrow!
