Have a Great Day!

I am still loving my Basic Grey papers that I got from Doodliedoo! These papers are from the Pheobe series. The layout for this card came from today's Sketch Challenge on SCS. First I stamped the butterflies on the Whisper White cardstock and thought I was going to watercolor them. I decided at the last minute that it looked too dull, so I stamped them on a rust, pink and blue paper from the Pheobe stack and cut them out. Then I ran them through my Xyron upside down to make the fronts sticky and dipped them in glitter and adhered them over the original stamped butterflies. I added some bling for their "heads" too. You can't really tell from the picture, but the pink butterfly is raised on dimensionals. I wish the band of patterned paper that runs across the middle of the card was better seen. It's one of my favorite patterns in the stack and most of it is covered up by the focal image. Guess I"ll have to make another card to showcase that paper a little more, huh? Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Rhonna Ferrer Butterfly, Studio G sentiment; Paper- Basic Grey Pheobe, Whisper White; Ink- VersaMagic Black Midnight; Accessories- horizontal slot punch, May Arts ribbon, Xyron, glitter, bling from Walmart, paper piercer.

I just love the Phoebe collection too. It is so fun seeing how it is being used. I haven't had the hear to cut into mine yet. I'm a chicken; don't know why.

I am a Basic Grey addict! When I was designing for my friend's online store, I would stock up on all the latest and greatest BG!

I love the idea of using the Xyron upsidedown...never thought of that! I don't use a big one, just the little X, but it's a GREAT idea!!!!
