Playing in my stamp room....

I had a chance to play around in my stamp room today. Yay!  Of course, I tell my husband I need to work in my stamp room.  He doesn't realize it's all play!



This card was inspired by THIS card.  This card looks so much better in person.  It's hard to see but I used the Texturz plate with the diamond pattern on the Rose Red background.  It really makes the card.  I used the new Summer Sun corduroy button, it has such great texture.  I wanted to use the new Eyelet border punch instead of the scallops, but I don't have mine yet. :0(  As you can tell, lots of paper piercing, I just can't help myself!  I used the biggest Oval punch and then adhered it to a piece of Old Olive and just hand trimmed around it.  Not my favorite thing to do, but it wasn't too bad...


Here is the inside of the card.  I've been doing more with the insides lately. There's paper piercing in here too!

I need to get better at my picture taking.  This is so cute in person.   HERE is where I got my inspiration for this card.  I used the diamond pattern Texturz plate this one also.  I dotted the corners with the Black Stampin' Write marker.  I used the retired Wire Works (that I've had forever and never used!) to wrap around the butterflies and make antennae.  The butterflies are attached with mini glue dots.


I had an extra Top Note cut out and part of a big butterfly from when I cut out the smaller ones, so I thought I'd just put them on the inside.  Waste nothing!
