Butterflies and Tapes

If you're here to see The Craft's Meow newest release for today, please click HERE.

Good morning, all!  I trust that all is going well in your corner of the world.  It's time for another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

It's your favorite challenge Anything Goes!!  The Design Team is using Martha Stewart products this week, and of course, if you have some, we'd love to see them, but they aren't required.  I have a set of 3 cards today, all using Martha Stewart's Vintage Girl tapes (the blue gingham one is not part of the set) and her Monarch Butterfly punch.  I love the pretty mix of the ginghams and florals with the little green dot thrown in!  I'd love to know which of these cards is your favorite!  Let's get started:

SSS, Martha Stewart, Nov. 28

This first one uses some pearls and buttons and the tapes run horizontally.

SSS Martha Stewart, Nov. 28, #2

On this one, I went a little wild with my tapes and covered practically the whole card.  I also used another Martha product (a gift from my friend Joy) called Doily Lace Cherish Labels.  They are embossed and are sticky, so I just stamped my sentiment and added it to the card.

SSS Martha Stewart, Nov. 28, #3

And for my final card, my tapes run vertically.  I embossed the whole card, tapes and all with a Cuttlebug Houndstooth folder, and used another of the Cherish Labels. 

As always, there's a $50.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store up for grabs again this week!  Ready, get set, GO!

  15. Oh, Lin - you have outdone yourself this time, for sure. When I saw your one card at SSS, I had no idea it was part of a trio! These are drop-dead delux! So bright and fresh with a great mix of patterns and brilliant use of the white space. You are in a league all your own. Love 'em all.

  16. Yikes, Lin - that isn't a fair question - I can't possibly pick a favourite - they are all beautiful :) The tapes are so pretty and love the addition of the butterflies and buttons!

  17. Tough decision to make, Lin! All three are equally beautiful and special in it's own way but I think I will go for the third one!

    FYI : my trick with the blog did not work out!
