Simon Says Stamp Fluttering By Blog Hop

I am so thrilled and excited to be a part of Simon Says Stamp's Blog Hop today, celebrating it's newest release, Fluttering By!!  
You should have arrived here from Heather Ruwe's blog!
This release, as with it's very name, has some beautiful butterflies in it!  Fluttering By celebrates Mother's Day with some wonderful stamps/dies that express love to all moms, as well as there being a number of stamps, dies and stencils that celebrate everyday life!!  I have chosen one of the sets of butterfly dies, and made three cards, using one of the two butterfly dies of this set in 3 different ways...
All three of my cards use the new Stitching Butterflies dies...these butterflies are SOOOOOO pretty!! I die cut the butterfly pieces for both butterflies from watercolor paper, and used my watercolor paint to give them color.  I layered them, then adhered them to a card panel with a die cut background using the new Pebbles die (also layered from underneath), and sentiment from the new sentiment set, Messages for Everyday.  Here's a close up...


The second one, I used the same butterfly, this time with patterned paper and another die from the new release, with a line of butterflies,  Flickering Butterflies.  I layered the butterflies a second time from underneath, then put the black cardstock under the layered die cuts.  I added another of the sentiments from the Messages for Everyday stamp set...
Here's a close up...


The third one, I used plain, colored cardstock for the butterfly, in two shades of pink.   I used the Pebbles die for a background, as well as some leaves from the older  Simon Forget Me Not die set...
 I die cut and layered the butterfly and adhered it onto the card with the leaves, after embossing the pebbles (did I tell you I LOVE this Pebble die??!!) and stamping the sentiment (yet another from the Messages for Everyday!!).  I dotted some Jewel Tonic drops for some bling:)!!  Here's a close up...
Ok...I had so much fun, but now, some fun for you!!
