Tomorrow is Bob the Builder's birthday! This amazing man is an incredible husband and father and we're going to celebrate him all weekend long – because he deserves it!

What you may not know about Bob is that he's the technical support for my Stamp Studio.  Bob has arranged all the lighting, sound, tripods, every computer back up, every program installation, fixed every file I've 'accidentally deleted', installed cabinets, helped set up and tear down for events and even helped teach new stampers when I was short handed - all with a smile on his face.   Happy Birthday to the love of my life and my business partner!


Since the debut of the Occasions Catalog my focus has drifted away from the annual catalog. It's typical. We gravitate to the new.  I've created hundreds of cards using the Occasions Catalog products and as much as I love them I was missing the 'old stuff'.  

Today's card was created using the Floral Wings stamp set.  This stamp set is a free host reward product (page 180 of the annual catalog) and fits the Bold Butterfly Framelits.  I loved the dotted background of the images and decided to put a little dazzle into it.


The base of my card is Old Olive and I used the Pretty Petals Designer Paper Stack for the upper portion of my card.  Do you like the angle?

One of the features of this stamp set is the ability to stamp the flowers inside the negative areas of the butterfly in any color that you choose.  Since the stamp set is Photopolymer, alignment is easy.  

I added a 1/2" wide strip of Gold Glimmer paper and added Gold Glitz Dazzling Details to shimmer up the butterfly body.  Can you see the antennas? I created those with the Gold Metallic Thread.
