Butterfly Collages, Summer on the Wing

This week our Design Team is playing with the beautiful butterfly stamps we released in April. These gorgeous images are already collaged for you. With enough area to be fun to color and enough background to save you heaps of time, they’re a super quick way to get a gloriously textured, layered card. You can cut out the butterfly from a second stamping to add depth, or simply stamp in black over your Creative Palette monoprints for a fast and easy card.

And the winners of last week’s sketch challenge are….

Deloris!! This girl is on a roll! Lisa, the Stampendous Art Director, said, “that it’s an extremely good use of not only our beautiful stamp, but also the sketch challenge concept was very well executed! The valance for the window; the colors, stitching, little safety pin and even the placement of the bird are just exquisite!” Awesome job Deloris and keep ’em coming!

Jan J. was the other winner! Stampendous owner and artist, Fran Seiford, said, “this card really catches my eye. Love the warm yellows and shading. The sparkle is wonderful.
Would be a cheery card to receive!” Spectacular!
