The Scrapping Cottage/CottageCutz June Blog Hop




 Good morning, and welcome to The Scrapping Cottage/CottageCutz June Blog Hop!  We have some gorgeous creations to share with you, so grab your favorite cool and refreshing drink and join us for all the fun!  There is a fabulous line up of inspiration, and of course there will be prizes, so be sure to leave a comment on each designers blog, because we're not sure which designer will be awarding one of the wonderful prizes.  The more you comment, the better your chances of winning, so HOP to it!!  ;-)

You should have arrived here from The Scrapping Cottage Blog, but if not, no worries, because it's only one stop back and you'll need to begin there to find out all the wonderful details.  That will also be where we end the hop, and I don't want you to miss a thing, so be sure to start AND end there!  

For my card, I used some of my newest Cottage Cutz dies, and with Independence Day just around the corner, I thought this beautiful Graphic 45 patterned paper was the perfect color choice.  I've been wanting to use that paper for a very long time, and I'm so glad I did!  I just love it!
 I used a combination of colored and white card stock for this card, and the sentiment, which comes from Market Street Stamps Riding By stamp set was stamped with Stampin' Up! white craft ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  The edges of the white butterfly wings was sponged ever so lightly with Time Holtz distress ink in Vintage Photo, and the finished butterfly was embellished with rhinestones.  I used an action wobble to attach the butterfly to the card, and with a flick of the wrist, it looks like it's ready to take flight!  


Here's a little closer look at the detail on the butterfly and doily.   For this card, I used the following dies:



 

 Thank you so much for joining us today!  It's always a pleasure to share with you!!   Your next stop on this terrific hop is at the amazing and extremely talented Cindy Haffner's Blog.  Should you happen to get lost along the way, below you will find a list of all the stops.

Great idea using the action wobble on the butterfly--I'll have to scraplift that! The more I see this butterfly die, the more I want it. Fabulous use of contrasting colors.
