Day 2 - Waltzingmouse SoAP

Welcome to the 2nd Day of the Waltzingmouse Stamp of Approval Parade (SoAP)!  Thanks for all your kind comments left yesterday - weren't all the DT's projects inspirational??!!!  I know I got a lot of great ideas for using the May release sets!

Today I'm parading  Gingham + Co with a little bit of Say It Loud slipped in!

First I stamped two sentiments from Say It Loud in two colors of ink - then I stamped 2 different gingham background stamps and the reverse dots background stamp from Gingham + Co. on white card stock and punched them with the butterfly punch.  I adhered the butterflies to the card with glue dots. 

A cheerful little card that took just minutes to make! And the cool thing is - when you stamp one of these background stamps - it's big enough to be able to punch 3 or 4 butterflies out of the stamped panel - so you can make multiple cards at one time!  whoo hoo!!

My second card again uses both of these wonderful stamp sets.

I stamped a gingham background directly on the card, then stamped the sentiment over it in black ink.  I stamped the reverse dots background in two different colors and die but my flowers (Tim Holtz Alterations Tattered Florals).  The leaf is from Big Blooms - Chrysanthemums.  I layered the flower with foam dots, curling the petals a bit for dimension.  I adhered the ribbon with Scor Tape and just cut it off at the edge of the card (I hate wrapping ribbon around a no layer card!)

Please continue viewing the parade on each of the Design Team blogs listed here -  and I hope you'll stop by again tomorrow for Day 3!
