Butterfllies & Blossoms-Little Paper Shop

I LOVE this set!! tThis is the last but certainly not least Little Paper Shop sneak peak. All 5 stamp sets will be available at Little Paper Shop tomorrow and I will draw for my blog candy as well. Don't forget to get your name in there:-) I made this sample with the Friday's Sketchers Sketch #7! I am really happy with the way it turned out...other than the placement of my knot on my ribbon...but with my new ATG adhesive, once it's stuck, it's not movin' so I didn't really have much choice! I needed some more thank you cards, so I used the thankful sentiment, but there are more great sentiments included as well as more fun images...but I'm not gonna tell'll have to check out the store tomorrow!!

The pp I used is from the same company (Kaiser Scrapbook) that I used on "Swell News" just a different line. I really love the colors in this one too and the line is called "Tudor". I used Picadilly (the red background flowery one) and Hampton (the mat behind the white panel and the backside is the blue funky flowery one) very fun papers!! Colored the butterflies in with my CTMH markers, added some stickles to the blue part of the flower as well as the main body part and voila!! Oh yes...I cut the butterflies out of the watercolor (I used this because it is really heavy weight paper and thought it would make the butterflies more sturdy) and then scored on either side of their body and folded them into the centre to make them pop. I just glued down the main body part and that's all. Here is a look from the side...
Please take a look at the other fab gals on the DT and what they have made with this set. Their blog links are just to the right. Bonnie has some blog candy up for grabs as does Silke, check it out for your chance to win.

Well that's all for me for today, the kids and I are going to my friend Brandi's for a tea and a visit. The kids love playing together, so it's a good play date for them and catch up tea time for Brandi and I. Thank you so much for poppin' in and I hope you have a splendid day!
