The current JustRite Stampers challenge is to create a card using spring colors and butterflies. I just got new Spellbinders dies in and couldn’t wait to try out the smaller of the two butterfly dies from Wings of Hope. I cut and embossed a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and sponged the butterfly with the die still on with Cantaloupe Memento Ink.

A frame from JustRite Stampers Kindness was stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on  Solar White cardstock. It was cut and embossed with the largest Label 20 Nestabilities die. Another piece of white cardstock was cut and embossed with the smallest of the Large Petite Oval Nestabilities die and sponged with New Sprout Memento Ink. A sentiment from Kindness was stamped in Rich Cocoa ink on the oval before that was adhered to the stamped frame with dimensionals. The butterfly was adhered to the lower right of the frame.

An image from Classic Scallop Border I was stamped in Rich Cocoa ink on white cardstock and cut out. It was stitched to a piece of Pink Paislee London Market Patterned paper that had been cut and embossed with the second smallest  Grand Rectangle Nestabilities die and the edges had been sanded. Fancy Waves! Border bling was adhered to the bottom of the scallop before the sentiment and butterfly were adhered to the center of the paper.

A piece of vellum was cut and embossed with the largest of the Floral Oval Nestabilities dies and adhered under the sentiment layers with dimensionals.  May Arts ribbon was threaded between the Vellum and the label, the label was adhered to the patterned paper with dimensionals and the ribbon was tied into a bow. Everything was adhered to the card base, which was cut and embossed out of Solar White cardstock with a Grand Scallop Rectangle die. Rhinestones from the new Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones on the butterfly and label finish off the card.

I hope you have time to participate in the challenge. You could win JustRite stamps! Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs and smiles

P.S.: Yes, I am hooked on Grand Scalloped Rectangle cards right now and that Floral Oval hasn’t left my desk since I unpacked it. Hi…I am Beate and I am a Spellbindersaholic…, I don’t want a 7 step program. I am loving with it!
