Bloomin' Marvelous Baja

I've been trying to clean up the craft room from the last two classes.  Sometimes it seems like I'll never get caught up.

I combined a couple of the kits to come up with this.  It's very quick and easy. No masking, just random stamping.

And I love this butterfly now that I have the Bitty Butterfly Punch.  The punch cuts off some of the black around the outside and leaves it looking more like a butterfly and less like a moth.  I like to use two colors of markers to color these.  On this one I used Wisteria Wonder around the outside and Marina Mist in the center of the wings.  Then I used a blender pen to blend the colors together.  A little White Gel Pen around the bottom dots and punched it out.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Bloomin' Marvelous, Papillon Potpourri
Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Certainly Celery
Paper:  Baja Breeze, Whisper White
Other:  Baja Breeze Seam Binding, Simply Scored, Adorning Accents Edgelits & Embossing Folder, Bitty Butterfly Punch

I'm so sad that Baja Breeze and Certainly Celery are being discontinued.  These are two of my favorites.  I'm really happy with the colors that are coming back and I've seen a  hint of the new In Colors and I think we're going to love them!

Thanks so much for the visit.

Gorgeous card, Bonnie, that butterfly is so delicate. I think baja breeze IS my favourite colour and don't know what I'm going to do when it's gone!

Loooooove the butterfly!! I did a double-take because I thought he was real! I love the color combo on the card too! And I'm glad to see you found a bit of time to pop in here! ;-)
