CAS Butterfly with Blockhead Stamps

Hi Dreamers!
Happy Saturday.  Saturday is always a reason to celebrate!  LOL  I am taking some time today to blog a bit, already made a retirement card for a friend, and I am going to try to make a few cards for kids later on in the day.  More on those later.  This month The Blockheads Design Team is focusing on Butterflies.  And, on this lovely Saturday, I want to share a monochromatic CAS butterfly card.

Materials List:
Blockhead Stamps: Whimsical-Take Flight -Swirl and Butterfly
Stencil Stamps Set (there are 3 of this set left and will then be retired)
Verses-Special Delivery
Inks: Potter's Clay and Cantaloupe from Memento
Cardstock: White and Clay


  • On White CS stamp the large shadow stamp with Cantaloupe ink.
  • Stamp the swirl  with Cantaloupe ink
  • Stamp the Sentiment and Butterfly with Potter's Clay
  • Add to card base made from Clay colored CS


  • Stamp the swirl on the inside and leave lots of room for a hand written note.

How about a few fun Challenges:
Charisma Cards: monochromatic
ATC's and cards with Attitude: Anything goes
Allsorts: CAS
Sweet Stampin challenge: white + one color
365 Cards: new beginnings -  I always think of a butterfly as a metaphor for new beginnings

Okay, I am going to get a cup of coffee and take a little break.  And, then!  Oh, I will think of something fun to do.  Hopefully work on those kid's cards.    Have a super weekend!!  Love ya.
