Hi there, happy Easter to you!  I’ve been enjoying this long weekend immensely.  We made the trip out to visit my grandparents.  It ended up being the entire extended family all over at their place, except for my dad who wanted to get some work done around the farm.  19 of us in all!

I got to relax this afternoon and create a new card.  This butterfly creation is for the Unscripted Sketches challenge – sketch #49.  It also fits into the string challenge over at Everything but the Kitchen Sink Challenge since I have 3 different bits of hemp cord!

I had fun using some Basic Grey papers I just picked up, and a Basic Grey button!  These are definitely Shauna colours, so this card hits that happy spot with me.. and I *finally*  got to use this butterfly stamp that I’ve had for at least a year.  Is it bad stamping etiquette to horde a stamp for that long without use?

Some other materials I used:

  • thin hemp cord
  • Inkadinkado Patterened bugs set and white embossing powder
  • Hero alphabet and sentiment set?

The sketch:


Have a good rest-of-the-weekend!


About Shauna

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.
