Buttons and Bows at Whimsy

Welcome to a new challenge at Whimsy Inspirations Challenge.  This week we bring you Buttons and Bows.  Here is what I made as my inspiration card.

I've used the Butterfly Bonus digi stamp that comes as a bonus when you purchase the new release Butterfly Border a StampArt Design by Kathryne.  You can find it here.





I've also used the new release butterfly papers from Michelle Roos design.  Love this paper!  My bonus butterfly has been printed 5 times, a tad smaller each time.  Don't you just love digi stamps!  I have to say I wasn't exactly a fan when they first came out, but wow, you can do some much with them.

My butterflies are coloured with copics.  BG000, BG15, B00, B02, B04, G000, E71 & E74.  Mint, Turquoise and Blue spica.

Hope you get out your buttons and bows this week and enter the challenge at Whimsy Inspirations.  


This card is also being entered at ...


Hand Stamped Sentiments ~ Peacock / bird photo inspiration.  I used peacock colours.

  18. Wow!! What a gorgeous card!! I am impressed with the coloring on your digi stamps. I have tried a few times and haven't had much luck with the coloring portion. I am trying one right now that I will post either Friday or Saturday hopefully that was a digi already colored in. I hope to figure out this digi thing soon. Any tips on coloring would be much appreciated. What kind of paper do you use for printing your digi stamps? Please visit my entries at #175 and #176. You visited entry #72; which was much appreciated. I was very energetic this week. HA!! Have a terrific day Kasey. Gloria Shirr

    1. Marsha, thank you for paying me the lovely compliment of becoming a follower.

      The embossing folder is one of the new dual Spellbinders folders, they are double sided and so you get one design then flip it over and fold it the other way and you get a second design. I love this pretty floral design.
