Butterfly Garden - More My Time Made Easy 25

Mona Pendleton | Monday, January 4, 2010 @ 10:08 PM |

Hi Everyone! I hope you have been enjoying the beautiful projects made by Lauren & all the My Time Made Easy Design Team girls :) BOTH Lauren & Kristin will be showcasing more projects today featuring the NEW My Time Made Easy products so please be sure to visit their blogs & see what amazing projects they have to offer! Today, I have some Butterfly embellishments to share with you that I made using the fabulous My Time Made Easy LLC © Pretty Impressions: All A Flutter & My Time Made Easy LLC © Pretty Pieces: Flutters & Flowers.

Here is my Butterfly Garden:
I love having embellishments on hand for that special card or tag that you need at the last minute! You can see how cute these little creatures are from this bird's eye view!
In the photo below, you can see step-by-step how I stamped these beauties :) I used 3 various stamps from the MTME © Pretty Impressions : All A Flutter set. First, I inked up the polka-dot solid image with SU Soft Sky & Groovy Guava ink then I stamped the outline image around each with SU Really Rust ink. Finishing up with the outline image inked with SU Chocolate Chip & a tad of Ranger Tim Holtz Vintage Photo around the edges.I hand cut each of the stamped Butterflies out with my super sharp scissors & set aside. Using the My Time Made Easy LLC © Pretty Pieces: Flutters file, I cut Butterflies with my Cricut Expressions 1.75" W x 1.79"H. This particular size worked great for my needs because I only wanted one layer but the beauty of these cut files are you can cut any size that suits your needs = TOTALLY CUSTOMIZABLE! For a little texture, I ran the butterflies through my Sizzix Big Shot Express & embossed them with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF.

This is a photo of most of the supplies I used to my the butterfly embellishments. I love this color combination!

That's it for today! I hope you like these butterfly embellishments made with the My Time Made Easy LLC © Pretty Impressions: All A Flutter & My Time Made Easy LLC © Pretty Pieces: Flutters & Flowers. As you can see BOTH of these awesome products are easy to use, very versatile & there are countless ways to use them! Please be sure to send me an email if you make ANYTHING using ANY of the MTME © products! I would love to see them :)
