Flutter by fun

TGIF my fellow stampers! I hope you have lots of fun crafty plans for this weekend. I'll be working but I still plan to get my stampin' on sometime in the evenings... so much to get ready for in the next couple weeks, what with new releases already sneaking up on us! I really can't wait to share all the cuteness with ya! :) In the meantime I'll enjoy playing along in a challenge or two... like my card today. Flutter By has a soft pastel color challenge going on this week and I had this new Peachy Pixie stamp by Christy Croll for Stamping Bella that looks super adorable in all those soft, pretty colors. I LOVE that Seuss-like branch she is sitting on so I decided to stamp parts of it up a couple more times to really fill out the crazy tree Peachy is resting in. I kept the over-all design fairly simple because I was so happy with how the scene turned out that I didn't want to take the focus off of it. A few pearls and butterflies was all this card needed in order to look finished and I really ♥ the end result. :) Ok, time for me to flitter off and get ready for the day... hugs! Supply list: cardstock- Bazzill and PTI paper- Basic Grey (green), K&Co (yellow) stamps- Stamping Bella (Peachy Pixie), Hero Arts (sentiment) ink- Memento tuxedo black, Ranger tumbled glass distress and Colorbox creamy brown Martha Stewart butterfly punch Kasier Craft and Zva pearls Copic markers: skin- E000, E00, E11, R00, R20 hair- RV00, RV10, RV11 everything else- YG0000, YG00, YG01, G20, G40, E30, E31, E34, G0000, G00

Miss Amy, this is just adorable! I love the little scene that you have made. She looks so sweet just sitting there on her Suess tree. I love the papers and everything together. Boy is this a homerun. lol... Anyway, have a great Friday and I hope you don't work to hard on all your crafty previews. Maybe it will rain all weekend so that you don't feel bad about all the outside work that is coming our way. Hugs, Lisa

OOOO!! I heart this a lot! I just got that stamp along with some wonderful SN releases and can't wait to ink them all up. This is so inspirational Amy. I love how you've scattered the branches, and those touches of pearls and butterflies is a wonderful touch. I was wondering if you had a tutorial on how you make those beautiful billowy clouds. Can you email it to me? quikhonu34{at}yahoo{dot}com? Have a fab day at work and a wonderful weekend!! TFS!!

Oh my gosh, I look at a lot of cards on a daily basis on my hops from blog to blog and this card is the CUTEST I have seen in a long, long time. I love EVERYTHING about it, but especially the Dr. Seuss-like quality of the image combined with your coloring and her gorgeous pink hair! I'm in love!
