God's Beauty ~ KWerner Color Inspiration #47

How cool to visit Kristina's blog and find that she had just posted the new Color Inspiration for the week! I immediately thought of God's Beauty hostess stamp set when I saw the photo those amazing cards for KWerner Design Color Inspiration #47.



I went straight to my stamping table, pulled out this unmounted set, and got busy! I made a similar card a few days ago and couldn't get that layout out of my head, so I used it again. I love the clean lines of this layout and I'm sure I'll use it many times more.



I stamped the butterfly image and the greeting in the center of the Whisper White cardstock using my stamp-a-majig and the butterfly image again on scrap. After cutting out the second image, I adhered it directly over the first image. A little paper piercing, mounting, and adhering...viola, done!

Stamps: God's Beauty, Thank You Kindly
Paper: So Saffron, Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White CS
Ink: Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip
Other: Crafters Tool Kit, Stamp-a-majig, Chocolate Chip 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals
