Welcome back to my blog today…this Memory Box Silver Springs Butterfly has intrigued me since the first time I saw it! I keep thinking it has a bit of a patriotic feel to it! My first idea I had for it, I haven’t tried yet but I still want to and now I feel a little patriotic thing coming on… hmmmm…. do you think?
I love all the stripes I’m seeing on stamping blogs these days, so I had to make a stripe pattern paper! I cut strips of the Memory Box Mocha cardstock in ⅝ inch strips and white cardstock in ¼ inch strips…ATG tape on the A2 card-base and just stuck the strips on.
I love MB cardstock colors but it’s hard to find unless you have a local stamp store that carries it. Good news though… Birch Press Design is carrying the Memory Box notecards which are the same colors! Tons of other fabulous items in the store too. Birch Press Design is part of the Memory Box family of products.
I popped the die up with mounting tape…leaving a few bits in the cut so I could hide the mounting tape easier.
I stamped the sentiment from the Ornamental Butterflies stamp set with my MISTI and Versafine Black Onyx ink. If you haven’t tried the Stamp Shammy for stamp cleaning yet…you need it! I love the crazy thing! It cleans off Versafine ink with just the wet shammy! I do clean it right away.
A few Doodlebug Enamel Dots to finish it off. Kinda unusual but kinda trendy, I like it! Hope you do too!
Linking to some challenges…
Thanks for stopping by! Flowers next time!
