Etsy Inspired butterfly cards





I already made a card for this week's Etsy Inspired 100th challenge, but Cathy Walter's shop has far too many goodies, so I've made a few more cards. I also want to give credit to my various blogging pals for helping me with a few of the pieces. Gisèle sent me an envelope full of amazing Waltzingmouse stamps, all cut out with her die cut machine. I have been thinking I should add a die cut machine to my wish list, but now I know it's an absolute must have. Open to feedback on which one to get or ideas. The background of these cards is a dandelion poem that Karen created and generously shared with me. When I saw some of the handwritten aspects of Cathy Walters shop I immediately thought of Karen's cool digital background. The butterfly stamp is compliments of my physical (in real life) card friend here, so thank you Michelle for sharing your fun new butterfly stamps with me. I love how these cards are a group effort! Jenny's Wee Memories is having a butterfly theme this week, so here's a few more lovely butterfly cards for that challenge. Simon Says Stamp and Show is doing a challenge with wings.

Materials: Rosie's Studio butterfly stamp, Karen Baker dandelion poem digital background, Waltzingmouse Stamps frames (Very Vintage Labels No.1,) Gina K Designs Lovely Label, Stampin Up watercolor pencils and blender pen, Versafine black ink, yellow and black card stock, Stampin Up corner remover punch

These are all beautiful, the yellow pops so great against the black and white.

I love these! The colours are striking. It's kind of cool looking at images I stamped just over a week ago, sent to New Zealand and now in such beautiful cards. Awesome job Erin.
