The ONE new in '22 ~ June!

 Hello friends!

It's time for my very favorite challenge ~ One Plus Twelve!

This card series is where I take one stamp

(and JUST one stamp)

and create a card twelve times - one for each month.

For June's card, I went shabby chic!

For my stamp this year, 

I've chosen the butterfly stamp from PInk Fresh Studio:

 and thought I'd go way outside the box this month!

I adore creating in new styles and learning new techniques

so that my cards aren't always cookie cutter.

I have recently been bitten by the journaling bug

and making my own tags, pages, flip books, pockets, etc

and many are in a shabby chic style.

So, my butterfly this month is as well!

On one side of the butterfly, it's stamped in designer paper

but the other side didn't have any design - it was plain.


It quickly became the palette for being able to build texture and layer.

I used a stiched arch die to pop up the frame to emulate a cathedral

window overlooking a beautiful garden below.

Yeah ... that's how my mind often works, LOL!

The sentiment is an epoxy word I've had for years in a set

and looks similiar to a style you'd see from a label maker.

I'm showing the inside because I added the 'popped out frame'

to the inside and carried over the shabby chic-ness.

This  so very sweet and I'm pleased with how it turned out :)

My friends Barb and Jeanette have joined me 

this year again and have their own cards on their blogs

which you can see here:



That's it for today!

Thanks for stopping by!
