From The Heart Stamps Monthly Challenge

Hello Friends! I barely made it in time, but here I am! Each month that I participate in the Monthly Challenge with From the Heart Stamps, I am gifted one FREE digital stamp set. The challenge is fun and easy and anyone can join in. You can read about the challenge HERE.

This month, Faith has given us another beautiful set. This one is called Time to Bloom and it's loaded with lots of good stuff. Take a look...

Pretty, isn't it?! And versatile, too. Well, I chose to use the butterfly/moth and the small flower cluster and I decided to make a few thank you cards with the "Many Thanks" sentiment. Please click on the pictures to enlarge them.

This was really quick and easy to do. I set everything up in a Word document and then printed it. I used a stitched rectangle die to cut them out and colored them with Copic markers. I kept the card design clean and simple, so I could make multiples quickly. After I finished the coloring, I added Clear Wink of Stella to the wings.

For the inside of the card, I used the small flower cluster and colored them with the same colors as the butterflies. Sweet and simple.

I matted the focals with black card stock and then adhered them with dimensional adhesive. A sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh sequins added the finishing touch!

That's all I have to share with you today. Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate the visit. Have a wonderful weekend!

Wow, that is one impressive freebie set and you've made some lovely cards using parts of it. You had me at butterfly of course. I adore how you colored and winked them up. They are so lovely. And you always wow me with your beautiful inside view of your cards. So thoughtfully created. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend! Hugs
