Here is the blog candy I won from the super talented Danyelle from Hangnailz n' Papercutz!
It came in the mail yesterday and totally made my day! Danyelle totally ROCKZ! This altered children's underware plastic container is AWESOME!!! Seriously, you are amazing!
The package was amazing and the contents...well see for yourself:

I loved all of the awesome SU goodies you sent! Thanks so much!

I hope you all have a great weekend! My stamping buddy Jen and I are going to Archiver's tomorrow night for 6 fun (and hopefully productive) hours of stamping time! I've been looking forward to this for weeks! Not too often I have child-free stamping time! Thanks for stopping by today.

Butterflies - Fly

Butterflies-Fly is the name of my Firecracker Designs stamp set for this month. I just love it! And no matter how hard I try, I can't resist cutting out and layering the butterfly to make it 3-D. For this card I stamped the image and colored it, then I stamped it again on a scrap piece of cs, colored and painted it, then glued it on the first image. It just makes me feel like the butterfly is going to fly off the card.
Supplies used: Butterflies-Fly from Firecracker Designs, SU CS, DCWV DP, Shimmerz paint, Michael's self adhesive rhinestones, Bic Mark*it permanent markers.

I hope you are all having a great week! Thanks for stopping by!

Another butterfly card!

As I've probably said a thousand times, I LOVE butterfly stamps. This is one of the reasons I couldn't resist the Butterflies-fly set from Firecracker Designs by Pamela. I just love these fanciful butterflies. This card is fairly simple (I was following SCS sketch challenge SC190). I stamped the butterfly, colored it and cut it out with my circle nestibilities. I then stamped it again on scrap paper and colored and painted it (with Shimmerz paint) and then glued it over the first image for a 3-D look. The sentiment is stamped a little higher than I had wanted it but I didn't have any more of that particular paper so I decided to go with it. Here is a close-up to give you a better look at the 3-D wings.

Supplies used: Butterflies-fly from Firecracker Designs, SU CS and DP, Nestibilities, self adhesive rhinestones, Bic Mark*It permenant markers, Shimmerz paint.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a great start to your week.

Sunday Stampin!

I finally got a little free time this afternoon all to myself and I couldn't resist a trip to my stamp room. I received my first stamp set from Firecracker Designs by Pamela a few days ago and I have been anxious to ink it up. I actually made 4 cards with this set today but I'll just show you one for now. This card is definitely not my normal style but I thought I would have a little fun with it. Annabelle is on a rainbow kick, drawing rainbows, writing her name in rainbow colors, naming stuffed animals "rainbow"... so I had her in mind the entire time I was working on this one.
The butterflies are all stamped on white cardstock. For the full butterflies I stamped them a second time on scrap cardstock and cut them out. I colored and painted them and then glued them over the first images to give them a 3-D look. I used rhinestones for their bodies.
The sentiment is printed out on the computer.

Supplies used: Butterflies-Fly stamp set from Firecracker Designs, Stampin Up! cardstock, Rhinestones from K&Co., Bic Write*It permanet markers, Prismacolor markers, Bashful Blue SU classic ink, Shimmerz paint - Angel wings, computer.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Preschool starts back up tomorrow so hopefully that means I will have a little more stamping time soon!
