Blissful Butterfly Wing Medley


MemoryBoxButterflyWingMedley-MemoryBoxLeavenworthButterflyTrio-OpenStudioPinpointRectangleLayers-MemorytBoxFollowYourBliss-JeanOkimoto-ImagineCrafts-Kaleidacolor-RadiantNeons-ImpressCardsAndCraftsLast night's rainstorms made it feel like fall today - and reminded me that I need to use the Butterfly Wing Medley quickly, before fall really does arrive!  

Jean Okimoto here this weekend, with more butterfly inspiration for you.  Memory Box has a great selection of classic butterfly designs.      Add them to your collection now, before summer ends - and enjoy creating with them.

Remember those Kaleidacolor inkpads?  You might have a few stashed away as reminders of your rainbow-stamping days.  Press those vivid coordinating colors onto a large acrylic block and paint them onto watercolor paper with a wet brush.  Blend them to create vibrant backgrounds for diecutting and stamping.  

I used the Riviera inkpad here - then stamped a quick greeting with the pretty Radiant Neon Electric Purple.  "Pretty" and "neon" are rarely used in the same sentence - but I think it's a great match for the beautiful butterflies.

Please visit our Ideas Gallery for detailed instructions and supply lists for today's card - and a few more.


Be sure to visit Impress for their Holiday Event beginning at 9:30 AM today - be among the first 25 to arrive and get a great goodie bag of special products.  Be inspired by their beautiful displays, new holiday items and demos from 9:30 to 11:30.   It's the perfect time to get the Memory Box items that are on your wishlist.  

Thanks for visiting...see you again this evening!
