Autumn Days Wreath

I kept seeing all these darling wreaths made out of other stamps like leaves and berries, pine cones, etc. and I knew I couldn't resist trying myself. This was my first try and I'm sure it would have been a little better if I masked a circle. But I just free-handed. It turned out better than I expected, hehe. This leaf (as well as the little berry thingy-sounds official, doesn't it?) is from the Autumn Days stamp set.

Items Used:
Ink: Soft Suede (115657), Crushed Curry (115659), Dusty Durango (115654), Real Red (103133)
, Soft Suede (115318), Crushed Curry (115319), Dusty Durango (115321), Whisper White (100730)
Accessories: Crushed Curry Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon (115614)

Inspired Butterfly

I made this card with my 4 year old daughter. She requested butterflies. I love the grass from the Inspired by Nature stamp set. She was thrilled to use my Big Shot and make the butterfly using Stampin' Up!'s Beautiful Butterflies die. This card went to our teenage neighbor for all her help playing with the kids this summer. I hate to see it end :( I loved the much needed time to myself for a couple hours a week....
