Hello friends! It’s Josee! Today is my day and I just keep thinking….the more I stamp SPRING-type cards….maybe the Mother Nature will take the hint and get rid of all this snow!
I love butterflies and especially love these 2 colours together!
I love the contrast between the bright butterfly and the silhouettes of the flowers, don’t you? Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy to coordinate the products together.
Let’s get to the video….this card really only takes minutes to make!

So…on a side note… I bought something the other day — a Silhouette Cameo e-cutter. EEK! I have never been more terrified in my life! I opened the box and this big computer thing just STARRED at me. It’s pretty but it’s scary all at the same time. I just looked at it for a week and wouldn’t even turn it on. Well, today, I did it….I cut something. BWAAAA! I was terrified and I messed up several times but I did finally get something to cut successfully. Wahoo!
I have no clue what I am going to do with this cute little frame but at least I can say I was successful at cutting something. 🙂
So I’m curious… how many of you have E-Cutters? Do you like them? Do you use My Digital Studio downloads with your machine? Would you like to see projects made on an E-Cutter or are you happier to just stamp, punch, and create?
Not to worry! Simply Simple Stamping is STILL all about stamping and keeping things quick and easy. I actually bought the machine to make Christina some OCU vinyl wall art for her dorm. You can also make tee shirt appliqués with it and I thought that would be fun too. I want to make her a shirt that says, “I can’t…I have rehearsal”. Cute!!
Oh and speaking of OCU, can I just share something really exciting with you? We were invited to a special dinner last night at the University because of Christina’s high ACT and GPA scores (yes, she is awesome). We were seated at a table for 8 and GUESS who was our table guest? The Dean of Musical Theatre, Dr. Herandean! Christina just about DIED (and I did too)! She really admires Dr. H and he had all night to get to know her. We were both SO excited to spend the evening with him. We also met the OCU president and lots of other “deans” from other areas of the school. It was SO much fun and now I want to go back to college!! I thought about it….briefly….but then realized it would seriously cut into my stamping time so I think I will pass.
Well, off to do what I like to do and that is stamp and create fun stuff to share with you! Hope you all have a FABULOUS Wednesday! See ya back tomorrow!
