Butterflies – 3 x 3

Hi! I’m here with 3, no 4, cards to share with you today.


I made this with Gelatos, a splattering of Smooch Spritz, hand painted Popsicle sticks on regular heavyweight white card stock. I stamped the sentiment in gray.


I did not know this until today, but apparently butterfly ice creams are a real thing!

In 2008 the brand launched double-stick NestlΓ© Eskimo Butterfly and NestlΓ© Eskimo Night Butterfly, which can be divided into two sticks with two flavors to enjoy.
Who knew?!

Many of you ask about the little house in my yard. Here’s a view of the Wine Hut, as we call it, from my patio. It was moved here during the 1950’s from a nearby vineyard.Β  It was recently refurbished.IMG_8036edited

I also made this with Gelatos, a splattering of Smooch Spritz and stamped the sentiment in gray on mixed media paper.

A more CAS version with straight stamping this time.



My 4th card was inspired by this week’s Make It Monday #250: Masked Backgrounds with Laurie Wilson:IMG_8099editedIMG_8103edited

  2. Both your cards are beautiful! Love the soft colours and drips on the first card. The colours on the second card are bright and cheerful. Great work. Thanks for joining in the fun at Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge πŸ™‚ Gayatri xx


  3. Oh my, these are all so beautiful! I just love how you made the butterflies multicolored! And your Make it Monday card is fabulous with the subtle butterflies added to the vibrant background, looks like they are floating! You have such lovely landscaping at your house, too :)!
