You're The Best


How is everyone doing? Today i have a card that features some cute stamps from Stampcow. They have a great selection of stamps in their etsy shop.

The stamps are wood mounted and are roughly 1.5 by 1.5 inches. And they stamp great!! I'll be featuring several cards through out the week using their stamps and craft supplies, so make sure you stop by over the next few days!!

For my card i was inspired by CAS-ual Friday's challenge this week - Over the Edge.


I started with stamping the grass. I stamped one grass image on a piece of cardstock, then immediately stamped it again on my cardbase. I continued across my cardstock and cardbase. Then i cut out my cardstock piece and adhered it to my cardbase with pop up dots.

Next i stamped Stampcow's butterfly image in black ink. I used distress markers to color the wings and then cut it out. Then i stamped the butterfly once more on my cardbase and used pop up dots to adhere my colored butterfly.

Last i added the sentiment, and well it had to go in that exact spot because, of course, as i was making this card a tiny black dot appeared, and well i had to either hide it or start over! (no i couldn;t ignore it, lol) So i that's were the sentiment went!! lol

Thanks so much for stopping by and make sure you check out Stampcow's shop!!
