So many ideas were running through my head when I saw this month’s things!! I need way more hours in a day!!!

I decided to use two Fun and Fancy Folds, these are so handy as they come cut and scored, ready for use! The first one is the Diamond Fold.

I love that there are dies to match the cute nest and birds, and YIPPEE….more flowers and leaves!!

I used Shabby Rose Collection added to the base.

I think you’re going to see lots of Bluebirds with this set as most of us had the same bird in mind! LOL! 

I used Layered Lacey Squares and Fancy Foliage on the front and inside.

 

My next sample uses the Z Fold

Expect to see LOTS of butterflies!!! I LOVE these and their matching dies! And the adorable little Butterfly and Bugs set with matching dies….too FUN!

I didn’t have just the right shade of ‘rose’ for my base layer, so I just took one of my Copics to the Z Fold!

BelleVignesTroisJoliesPapLordsPrayerCopic

I stamped Belles Vignes and embossed…I need a true white ep, but I LOVE how it embossed! Such a gorgeous design by Michelle, and notice how it matches the Shabby Rose paper, and so do the butterflies!!! Awesome!!!

I did a piece of Polished Stone technique using my Copic refills in colors matching the DP before stamping and die cutting the butterflies.

I also used my MISTI to stamp all the images, no going wrong and wasting paper!

Spread Your Wings, Belles Vignes, Lord’s Prayer Script, Trois Jolles Papillons, Butterfly and Bugs
