Butterfly Gala for Any Stamper

Happy Monday stamping friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!  How many of you braved the Black Friday shopping?  I hope you found some amazing deals amongst all the chaos :-D  We were on the road back home from Council ID on Friday, so there was no shopping for me.  But you can bet that I will be partaking in some Cyber Monday shopping today!  Don't forget you can still save 10% off select stamps and kits in the Annual Catalog through the end of today!

It was absolutely beautiful here this weekend, which made it very hard to stay inside.  I wanted to be outside in the {kind of} warm sun all day, but I did get in some good stamping time on Sunday.  I inked up the new Butterfly Gala stamp set from the upcoming Occasions Catalog and gave #simplestamping a try.  Let me tell you...this is far from simple for me, but something I need to do more often!  I'm loving the black and white with just a splash of color from the Botanical Butterfly DSP from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog!
I stepped things up just a bit with my next card for the casual stamper.  I sponged a bit of color onto the butterflies and added a few of the adorable Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins.
And then for the avid stamper...this is the world I live in!  I always want to add more layers and textures and embellishments!  I used the Layered Leaves Dynamic TIEF for some texture, added some leaves with the Leaf Punch and added some sequins and Silver Metallic Thread for a little extra bling.  The heat embossed sentiment was the final touch to tie everything together.  What do you think!

 This will be a card I will make at my January Stamp Club, but I will be using the simple stamper card for an upcoming Coffee and Cards class for new customers.  I love that these three types of stamping were the focus at OnStage at the beginning of the month!  It's always a great reminder to go back to the basics to when it comes to customers who are new to stamping.
