Build-A-Flower fun!

Hello!  Happy Monday!  How was your day?  I had a good day because for the first time in quite a while...I stamped!  I cleared off the table, drug out tons and tons of stuff and just played for about two hours!  It was really nice!!  It is really good therapy for me to be able to play with all of my stamp toys! :)  Yay me!

I took out my new Build-A-Flower stamp set and coordinating punch and made three cards!  I really, really like this set and punch!  You can do all sorts of fun things with them!  I used them as they were intended on my first two cards by making and punching flowers, but my third card is a little different!  It uses the same pieces but came together to make something not at all flower-like!  Here are the cards I made today:

 Stamp Sets: Build-A-Flower and Filled With Love
Paper: Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette and Vintage Springtime DSP
Ink: Pink Passion and Chocolate Chip
Extras: Polka Dot EF, Build-A-Flower punch, 1'2" circle punch, scallop border punch,pearls and pop dots  

 Stamps: Build-A-Flower and Tiny Tags
Paper: Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White
Ink: Daffodil Delight, More Mustard and Red Riding Hood Red
Extras: Build-A-Flower punch, Jewelry Tag Punch, 1" Circle punch, Dazzling Diamonds, Square Lattice EF and pop dots

Stamps: Build-A-Flower and Three Little Words
Paper: Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Basic Black and Vintage Springtime DSP
Ink: Daffodil Delight and Pink Passion 
Extras: Build-A-Flower punch, Word Window punch, Modern Label punch and Jewelry Tag punch

Wanted to share how I made the butterfly body.  I cut a narrow strip of black and slid it into one end only of  the punch from the bottom side.  I cut the head part using the jewelry tag punch and then did the same with the word window to get a rounded end. 

Also, wanted to add that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new Vintage Springtime DSP!!  I may even love it more than my old favorite Bella Rose (*GASP!!*) and that is saying a lot!!  It is just so pretty!  I love every sheet in the pack...both sides! LOL

  I have a ton of stuff to do tonight, but I will be back soonest with more to share!  Have a wonderful night!  Happy stamping!
