{Special Post} Say It Big with Beautiful Butterflies by Melissa

STAMPlorations™ Blog

Hi there, STAMP friends! I’m back in from the farm fields and flower gardens for a quick post with 11 bold butterfly-ful cards to share with you today. Thanks for stopping by. I have another special group of cards to share. I’m doing a product feature post at STAMPlorations and this time I’m highlighting STAMP’s butterfly products along with Say It Big and Typografia Motivate sentiment stamps.

  Check out more at the STAMP blog. There’s a special sale with 25% off select products, 2 prizes there and if you use my coupon, STAMPGIRLMELISSA, you can receive an extra 20% off at the shop.

If you were here before for my Bold Birds post you’ll know that I’ve been spending lots of time outside this year. My husband and I have started a farm, “Promised Land Farm,” and we’ve been doing a bunch of projects to get the farm started.  We have been enjoying starting some flower gardens for the many pollinators that we have flying and fluttering around.

Our daughters have also been collecting Monarch butterfly larvae and we have been enjoying seeing the Monarch butterflies emerging from their Chrysalides.

 So, in honor of our fluttery friends, here are the 11 cards that I have to share with you.

I love all of the featured products and thoroughly enjoyed making these cards. In keeping with my busy season of life and the need to be in the fields and gardens, I’m going to simply share my cards with you.

Please see the end of the post for product links.

 

 

 

 

 

If you are looking for me I’ll be in the gardens and fields!

Grace & Peace,
