Guest Designing for Layers of Color ;)


I am thrilled to announce that I am the Guest Designer at Layers of Color for the entire month of June.  This is also the month that Layers of Color celebrates it's BIRTHDAY, so to kick off the celebrations I created this shaped birthday card.

I have used two of my favorite Layers of Color stamp sets on this card.  The beautiful butterfly is from Butterfly Collector.  I am addicted. Every project on my desk has a dimenstional butterfly on - I think I might just need a butterfly intervention!  

Tip:
To create a dimensional butterfly simply stamp the image twice onto cardstock.  I colored both images with my Copic markers so that they were identical. Trim around the edges of both.  Adhere the first butterfly to your card. Gently fold up the wings of the second butterfly and adhere to the first with a glue dot.

The second stamp set that I ADORE is the sentiment set called Happy Wishes.  The fonts are amazingly gorgeous and once again sentiments that I find myself reach for over and over again :)  I made the shaped card with my Spellbinders
