Paper Craft Crew 138

Ok, so I wasn't going to buy the Butterfly Basics bundle. Nope, already had butterflies I love. Nope, already spent enough on special occasions/sale-abration. Nope, already spent all my Christmas loot on stamping stuff.

But.... it looked so versatile, it looked so me and the end of March was coming up so fast. So yes, I caved in and got in an order last week and it arrived, just in time for Easter holidays. This is its first outing and where better than on this week's delightful sketch from the Paper Craft Crew?

I still got in two of my favourite stamps: Dictionary and Kinda Eclectic. But that fern frond might start rivalling my Kinda Eclectic leaves for the position of favourite foliage! I also went back to a favourite colour combination: Blackberry Bliss, Crumb Cake and one other - in this case, Mossy Meadow. I was also very pleased with the distressed effect I got by blotting the background stamp with a baby wipe first. Like all good ideas, so simple you wonder how you never thought of it sooner.

So, I forgive my weakness in the coveting of yet more stamps. I only wish I'd given in sooner!

Card: Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss
Stamps: Butterfly Basics, Kinda Eclectic, Dictionary, Crazy for You
Ink: Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake
Other: Square framelits, Elegant buttefly punch, Bitty butterfly punch, linen twine, brad base, crumb cake candy dots, dimensionals, black marker pen to colour cut edges.
All products Stampin' Up.

  1. Hi Jan! Hahaha! Me too, I wasn't going to buy the Buttefly Basics bundle, I have a bazillion butterflies and ferns too, but I'm right there with you, something about the versatility of this set sold me! I love what you have done with our sketch this week, especially using the stamp down the left side of the paper. Very creative. Thanks for joining us at the Paper Craft Crew this week! Crystal
