Summertime Stamping!

Hello, Angie here!

Summer is here and that means longer daylight hours and more color in our gardens!  Coneflowers are one of my favorite flowers so I reached for the beautiful Sweet 'N Sassy stamp set, "Flowers in Bloom".

I added lots of dimension to the butterfly by adding three layers to the base wing and then popping up the fourth layer with a sticky foam pad.

This week's Tuesday Morning Sketches is sponsored by Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps so I thought it would be fun to play along with their sketch!

I changed it up a bit by leaving off the stars and adding enamel dots and I used, "Doily Border Dies" for the division between embossed paper and designer paper.

For the inside I added the beautiful sentiment by Laura E. Newell that is one of the four sentiments included in the "Flowers in Bloom" Clear Stamp Set.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
