Stampin' on Sunday ~ Butterfly Basics

It was "Back to School" last week, for me if not the children. The first classes of the new term. I decided to use the same set of stamps as I had in the last class of the Summer term. I like to show how versatile a set can be if you give it a little thought.

The mesh design, a postmark and that lovely sentiment from the Butterfly Basics set. Some speckling from Gorgeous Grunge and the intricate butterfly die, layered with a little punched one, to finish off.

Here I added my favourite Hardwood background stamp and punched out some hexagon apertures for that mesh to peep through. A different sentiment and some punched butterflies raised on foam pads for dimension.

This time I stamped the mesh and speckles onto a piece of card so that I could punch the hexagons out and add on top of the background mat. I thought this would make a good male card. It could be adapted to any colour scheme, but this is one I never grow tired of.

I'll share the final card from that class (and the story of the unexpected shed) on Wednesday. It's a glorious day here. Hope the sun is shining with you too.

I love those hexagons. They make your eye travel right across the card. Lovely designs as always.
