Butterflies all around …. and a mess

Today I learned a new technique while viewing the live broadcast on Stamping Scrapping’s Technique and Tutorial site (link in the sidebar if interested).

Cindy showed us how to use the Inkssentials Cut-N-Dry pad. Wow, is this awesome! Here is what I made. Cindy always records her broadcasts so I was able to look through it several times and can always refer back to it when I forget how I did this.

I followed the sketch at Stampin for the Weekend and went from there. Along with entering the Stampin for the Weekend challenge I am also entering this card in the following challenges:

I made a pull out tag and then stamped a sentiment from SSD Floral Blessings stamp set.

Here is a close up of the stamped butterflies. Stamping Scrapping is now carrying Canvas that can be stamped on. It is adhesive back and is really cool!

For the inside of my card I stamped again and then used some of the scraps I had left to decorate the inside.

I used the following materials for this card:

So, I looked around my room and decided I am a messy crafter. Here are some pics just from making this card. I had stuff scattered everywhere Smile

That is so creative...and you are not that messy...i should send you a picture of my work table when i am making a card/LO...why put it away if you are going to make more than one card? I clean up when i am finished.

WOW, this is stunning. What a great idea, it looks so special. And don't worry about the chaos in your craft room, mine doesn't look better. In Germany there is a saw, I think in English it goes like this: Everybody can handle order, but only a genius can master chaos.
Thank you so much for sharing with us at Crafty Calendar Challenge and good luck!
