Butterfly Basics in Review


Good morning! I wanted to share the Weekly Deals with you, as well as some cards because one of my favorite stamp sets is on sale this week. 


I have a few cards that I made with the Butterfly Basics stamp set. The best part is that it coordinates with the Butterflies Thinlits.


My first card using Butterfly Basics was colored with alcohol markers.


It is great for techniques such as the Bokeh Technique. This is the original. You may have seen copies by other stampers.

 No coloring necessary.

It can be used to make a collage with other elements as seen here.

 Butterfly Basics lends itself well to earthy, neutral tones.

Add some pearls and pink for a more feminine card.

A little bit of grunge.

More than Chocolate?


Yes, more than chocolate! That is how much I love my daughter but she knows that. If not, she will when she gets this card. Lol.
Honeycomb Happiness Stampin' Up! ; Lovely Amazing You Stampin' Up! Easy Valentine card. Handmade card by Lisa Young, Add Ink and Stamp
I used the Clean and Simple challenge at Splitcoaststampers : create a Valentine and include a heart. I used the cute little ice cream cone from the Sale-a-bration set, Honeycomb Happiness but instead of coloring it, I stamped it on card stock, cut out the pieces and adhered them to my card front. The sentiment is from a still current set, Lovely Amazing You and pretty much says it all. 

It's too bad it doesn't say "love you more than Cuffy". Haha. It's no secret that I am over the moon crazy about my dog Cuffy, and the girls know it. I think they sometimes think I love her more than them. Never, ever! But she sure does melt my heart.

Elegant Bloom


Birthday Blooms Stampin' Up! Floral card. Handmade card by Lisa Young, Add Ink and Stamp
Today's card uses some colors that I wouldn't necessarily put together for a floral card but sometimes you just have to go with it! I used the color challenge at Splitcoaststampers : Basic Gray, So Saffron, and Soft Sky. 

I began with the paper from Timeless Elegance because it has lots of gray in it and I love the patterns. While looking at the aforementioned patterns I noticed that the flowers on one of them kind of looks like the flower in Birthday Blooms. Aha! And just like that my card took shape. The sketch is my version of the sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers. I did leave off the little banners and added flowers instead. I had to get the Soft Sky in there somehow!
