Butterfly Garden Introduction

Good morning everyone.  Sorry I have been MIA for the last few weeks.  There has been so much going on and my MOJO seemed to have disappeared.  Hopefully I have recaptured it.

Today is the first day of the JustRite Stampers May Release.  This stamp release is amazing(as usual).  There are 3 new cling sets and 4 new ribbed sets.  The release sneak peaks will begin today and continue until May 11. 

Today's release is called "Butterfly Garden" and comes as 3 1/4" ribbed.  There are 4 stamps with borders.  Three of the centers are perfect for coloring, the other center has the beautiful sentiment which is what I chose for my card today.

I stamped the sentiment using Memento Grape Jelly, diecut with Spellbinders Labels 20 and matted onto a mat diecut with Spellbinders Labels 18.  Because I wanted a "longer" look for the sentiment, I chose to not use one of the round borders.  Just because the stamp is round doesn't mean that it needs to stay round on your card.  For this reason - JustRite stamps are very versatile.

The green sprigs were cut using the Martha Stewart Branch punch.  The butterflies were cut using the Martha Stewart butterfly punch with some Kaiser rhinestones added for their "trail".  The white lattice was made using the Martha Stewart Trellis border punch.

Here is a look at the entire "Butterfly Garden" stamp set.  Another must have!!

The butterfly card does make me think of gardening. I like the trellis background.
