Hi there stampers!  Long time between posts...I'm finding it difficult to juggle work, family, exercise (now that the weather is getting better), sleep, classes and my blog.  I'm sure it will all work out, but what does everyone else do to find balance?  I wanted to do a quick post this morning to share a card I made over the weekend using an Our Craft Lounge set called Nature's Note.  I seriously LOVE this butterfly!

To make this project, I stamped the first and third butterflies with Memento ink on Neenah card stock.  They were masked with sticky notes then the second and fourth butterflies were stamped.  One additional butterfly was stamped on a scrap and cut out.  All of the butterflies were colored with Copic markers and one was popped up.

To make the background panel, I used a Stampendous Marble Cube.  I've had it for a long time but have never inked it up.  It's really easy to has three rubber sides (A, B and C) and you stamp in that order from lightest to darkest ink.  Easy peasy!  I have one more project to share, but I'm afraid that will have to wait...I'm off to work now.  Got to go support my habit, huh?
