You are a fabulous "Work of Art"

Happy Monday, Friends!

I woke up to a grey, rainy morning and now I'm sitting in my studio with the window open and I can see blue sky, sunshine and white, puffy clouds.  WOOT!  I love spring!

Speaking of spring....I have the perfect "springy" card to share with you today.  I saw this technique and just knew I had to try it right away.  Check this out....


Doesn't that just sing "SPRING!"?  It's such a simple technique with a fun "Wow!" factor too.
Using the "Work of Art" stamp set and three colors of your choice, stamp the large "swoosh" image three times at an angle to one side or the other on a 5" x 3 3/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.  Then, using the medium butterfly from the Butterflies Thinlits, cut the image using the Big Shot and your magnetic platform.  Then use the Big Shot Die Brush to easily pop all of the little bits and pieces out of the butterfly and set it aside.  Cut a second piece of Whisper White 5" x 3 3/4" and, using Stampin' Dimensionals, layer the first piece on top.  Adhere the butterfly "body" into the negative space that it was originally cut from and, using your fingers, gently curve the wings up to add dimension.

I layered the entire piece on a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of Bermuda Bay card stock that had the corners trimmed with the Curvy Corner Trio Punch.  Then that entire piece was adhered to the Daffodil Delight card base cut at 8 1/2" x 5 1/2".  I stamped the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink and added a line of Basic Rhinestones to give it some sass and Voila!  Spring has sprung!

If you haven't gotten the Curvy Corner Trio Punch yet, today is the last day that it's on Sale on the Weekly Deals.  You can get yours at my Online Store just by CLICKING HERE

Here are all of the supplies I used for today's card.  They can all be found at the Online Store too.  No lines...No waiting....and you can even shop in your pjs!  


Wishing you a wonderful week ahead with time to get your fingers inky!

Stamped Blessings,
Michelle
