Thoughts & Prayers with the "New In Colors"

Our monthly downline meeting was this week and this is the card I made for the swap. My upline is Julie Davison and you can get some inspiration from her blog at Julie's Stamping Spot!
I am in love with the Rich Razzleberry and just had to use it :-) The butterfly is from the Great Friend Stamp set and I use it a lot! I first stamped the image in Versamark and then into Crushed Curry onto Whisper White cardstock. Added Iridescent Ice embossing powder and then heat set to give it some bling. Yes, and did you notice I colored the flowers with the New In Color MARKERS? That's right, SU made In Color Markers this year, doin' a happy dance ;-D
The In color ribbon is reversible, no polka dots on the other side, too cool.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

Butterfly Bookmark

Hello Everyone,
I was at Barnes & Nobles one evening checking out the books that were on sale when I came upon this cool bookmark. They wanted $5.00 for this bookmark so, I slipped it out of it's holder to see what was so expensive. It was just paper and magnets! I thought, "Gee, I could make my own!" So I did. I started out with Baja Breeze cut at 2.5 inches x 8 inches and scored at 4 inches. The Parisian Breeze is cut at 2.25 inches x 3.75 inches I cut two one for front and back. I only stamped on the front. To give the butterfly a little dimension I decided to emboss with clear embossing powder. First I inked the butterfly stamp with Versamark and then into Chocolate Chip, applied Clear EP and heat set. Used the Round Tab punch for the top and used sticky strip to apply for added strength. The magnets I found at Hobby Lobby.
Thanks for stopping by and all the nice comments :-)
