Happy Day with Butterflies

Butterfly Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Happy Day and Papillon Potpourri Stamps set and Bitty Butterfly PunchButterflies are a great image to include on a card. They're so colorful and seem so carefree. Butterflies make me think of happy days. They make a really cheery "hello there".  

The sentiment and the lacy doily used as background stamping were both stamped in Versamark. This ink leaves a subtle watermark image on colored paper.

Both the doily and sentiment images are from a stamp set called Happy Day.

Butterfly Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Happy Day and Papillon Potpourri Stamps set and Bitty Butterfly PunchThe butterflies are from a set called Papillon Potpourri.  I stamped them in black ink on colored paper and then punched them out with the Bitty Butterfly punch

This is one of the things I really like about Stampin'UP! I love the fact that there are so many matching stamp sets and punches.

Scissors v. Punch: I know some people are great with a pair of scissors but not me. I really appreciate the more professional look of the punched image. 

 What about you?  Leave a comment below. Do you enjoy cutting out images?  Do you own tons of punches?  If I know your preferences then I can post more of what you like.



Thanks for stopping by, I hope you've been inspired
