Sweet 'n Sassy Release Day - Majestic Monarchs



Welcome to day 4 of our July feature Blog Hops!  Today we're featuring the gorgeous new set called Majestic Monarchs.

For my card I decided to try that nice layering technique that so many card designers showcase today...humm...I think I need practice but this sure was a great way to show off these beautiful new stamps!!  Butterflies...ohhh...I love them!!!

I create the butterflies by first misting cardstock with a variety of Dylusions Ink Sprays.  I then stamped my butterflies onto the cardstock, fussy cut the butterflies, and covered the largest one with glitter glaze....'cause a girl's gotta have her bling!

 I then layered up some designer paper, tissue tape, paper doily, and twine before adding the sentiment...stamped on vellum...to complete the card!  More details on this great new set below!!
  • Stamp set includes 6 images & 3 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 4" x 6"
  • The largest butterfly measures approximately 2 1/2" x 1 3/4"
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Priced at $15
Check out some of the fabulous samples made by our talented DT in the thumbnails below.
