Les Papillions

I couldn't pass up these awesome stickers and paper by K & Company. It's the Wild Saffron set. Combined with stamps by The Angel Company (TAC) and Stampin Up, I was able to make this collection of cards for the Flood Card Swap on the Stamp Shack.

I still like running my chalk inkpad around the edges. I think it really makes each layer stand out.


I got the idea to add the 'little dots' from the sticker sheet by K & Co. I thought it was cute to see the 'trail' the butterfly and ladybug were leaving behind.


For this card, I used the Mega Scalloped Circle Punch and the Super-Jumbo Circle Punch by Marvy-Uchida. I punched small circles on the scalloped circle to give it more dimension. I used Stampin Up flower stamps (One of a Kind set) and the Stampin Up boho blossoms punch on this card, also.


I continued to use flower stamps (One of a Kind set) and the boho blossoms punch by Stampin Up on these cards:
