Happy Birthday Marybeth (a little late)

Marybeth, of Marybeth's Time for Paper had a birthday a little while ago.  Joyce and Cathy have planned a belated birthday/blog party for her.  Marybeth is so inspiring both with her creativity and with her encouraging comments.  How could I not want to particpate?



You may remember that I was playing with this flower last week.  While the stamp was inked and still looked pretty juicy, I stamped again on another piece.  Seeing it on my table and thinking about Marybeth, this came together.

Marybeth, I hope had a wonderful birthday!  Enjoy all the love today.  You are such an inspiration!

Here's the rest of the party goers.  Take a peek and see what they've done for Marybeth.


Addicted to Stamps and More is having a CAS with a Twist Challenge

OPTION 1
Create a CAS (Clean and Simple) project

OPTION 2
Create a project that incorporates a Nicecrane Design Image

OPTION 3
Combine the two and create a CAS project with a Nicecrane Design Image

I chose Option 1.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Blooming with Kindness, Papillon Potpourri, Morning Meadow (Hostess Set)
Ink:  Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Tuxedo Black (Memento), SU Marker (Daffodil Delight, Basic Black), VersaMark
Paper:  Melon Mambo, Whisper White
Other:  Clear EP, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Scallop Trim Corner Punch (retired)

The butterfly was stamped and colored with a Daffodil Marker.  Then I smacked it with the VersaMark pad and clear embossed it. After punching it out and mounting it on the card, I drew the antennae with a Basic Black Marker.

I'm glad you could stop by today. I hope you'll have time to visit some of the other party goers blogs and especially Marybeth's.

Enjoy!

Darnell J Knauss said...

This is an extraordinary card, Bonnie, although I don't think you need to get quite so violent with that gorgeous butterfly!! It's really breathtaking and I imagine it is even more so IRL. I'm sure Marybeth loved it!

Seriously, when you colored the butterfly first and then smacked it with the Versamark, didn't that yellow transfer to the Versamark pad?

(And thank you, my friend, for your sweet get well wishes! Hugs, Darnell)
