Thank you so much!

I'm always in need of a thank you note and this thank you so much card is perfect!  The thank you stamp is from Lots of Stamps.  The stamps in this set are ALL thank yous.  Like "thank you for caring" or "thank you doesn't begin to say it all."  

Also used on this card:  Pacific Point Cardstock and Ink, Wild Wasabi Cardstock, Rhinestone Jewels, Flower Garden Embossing Folder, Perfect Pennant Die (scallop circle), Fabulous Florets stamp set and some retired DSP (don't know the name).

August Stamp Club: Butterfly Gorgeous Grunge


Pam Morgan from Stampin' Up! demoed a card very similar to this Butterfly card at Convention. Gorgeous Grunge stamp set is used for the background.  Die cut Beautiful Butterflies with Whisper White card stock. Stamp butterfly with Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush ink with Gorgeous Grunge stamp set--just randomly. The center of the butterfly is Simply Pressed Clay and Blossoms Clay Mold--colored with Crisp Cantaloupe marker after the flower dried.  "Hello There" is from Happy Day Stamp set. 

At August's Stamp Club, I was asked how to fix stamping mistakes. Well, there really are no mistakes in rubber stamping or paper crafting--just a chance for embellishing or layering. On the top card, you'll notice a little smudge above the "hello there."  So little you might not notice it. To cover up the smudge, cut an additional piece of card stock to stamp on and place on top of your boo-boo.  Happy Stamping!  Bye for now, Maria
