Reason to Smile - Delicate Designs Folder

Yet another Reason to Smile!  I love the touch of colour with the strip of Designer Series Paper and Beautiful Wings butterfly.

I did mask the lower flower for placement and used the Stamp-a-ma-gig for the two step stamping.  The little row of butterflies with the blue trim is from a section of a sheet of paper for the Patio Party DSP package.  I also used a strip of the same paper for the inside of the card.  So pretty!

Here are the supplies:

Stamp Sets:  Reason to Smile, A Word for You
Paper:  Whisper White and Patio Party DSP,  Raspberry Ripple card stock
Ink:  Old Olive, Baja Breeze, Midnight Muse, Basic Black
Accessories:  Beautiful Wings embosslit, Delicate Designs Embossing Folder, 1/8" Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon

Once again, here is the flyer for the July Promo; Stamp set is $5 with a $60 purchase.

The weather has been quite warm in this neck of the woods!

Stay Cool.......Stay Calm!!  Enjoy the day!

Oops, can't believe it has been a month since I last posted! YIKES! I have been making a few cards,  just haven't posted them.

Sunny Fun is a retired set, but so suitable for the lovely weather we have been having!  I used a sketch by {Freshly Made} Sketches to get me started.

Otherwise, all products are current. I used the Polka Dot Parade DSP and also used the colours from that pack to make my card.

2 1/2" X 4 3/4" @ of Polka Dot Parade (Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive)

Here is the sketch I used!

So, take a stab at using this fun and easy sketch to help make quick and easy cards.
