This card is made with a stamp set called "Garden Delight" from Inkadinkado. The lower background paper is from the June Bug Paper Pad by Basic Grey. I purchased both these products from Joan Garden's.
Inkadinkado also has a really nice Clear Stamp Storage Box that is perfect for storing all your Inkadinkado clear stamps. You might want to check that out too, on Joan' blog, if you are looking for a way to organize your clear stamps.
This butterfly turned out very pretty. I used the Kaleidacolor "Autumn Leaves" rainbow dye inkpad to color the the butterfly. It was stamped on Barely Banana card stock then cut out. Then I used my
VersaMark pad to cover the whole thing with ink and embossed it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. It is very glittery.
The flower is from the same set of stamps. I used two shades of each color of markers to color right on the design. I have a small bottle that has a very fine mist and spritzed the design to "mix" the colors. It was then stamped on glossy card stock. Petite Oval Nestabilities were used for the frames. The bottom frame is cut from SU Crushed Curry card stock.
The top portion of the background was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. As I said the bottom portion is designer paper from Basic Grey's June Bug paper pad. The hardware and verse are from SU. A piece of twine that matches the Crushed Curry card stock was added to finish off the card. I ran it through a small Xyron machine in order to get it to stick.
