STAMPlorations inspiration #213

Welcome to another Tuesday inspiration from the STAMPlorations inspiration team where we usually feature stamps from one of our talented stamp designers. We're switching it up a little since our Spring Fling event is also happening over at the STAMP blog. All throughout April, products in the Spring Fling section of the store will be 25% off instantly. Which means... if you use my STAMPGIRLMARIA code, you can get up to 45% off!

Have you seen this month's CUTplorations challenge? It was my inspiration for today's Spring-y card. Unfortunately I've needed a slew of sympathy cards lately. So I've a twofer fer ya.

STAMPlorations With Sympathy Phrase die 

Pretty simple. I die cut the solid butterfly and added the stripes with Copics. I die cut the filigree butterfly from black and white to see which I preferred. Went with the black and a black sentiment. I decided to add the little blooms in the lower right corner and am glad I did. I think they add just the right "something".

Then with the leftover white butterfly...

These are going to a sister and brother whose mother just passed away at 90. I like that the cards are "related".

This is the first time I've used that sentiment die but I doubt it'll be the last.

You could win yourself a $10 GC to the store by leaving a comment. Check out today's post here. Thanks for coming by.

I'm joining the fun at:

What wonderful cards, Maria. I think the siblings will appreciate the related-ness of these cards. They are lovely. I have to add that the butterfly is such a perfect Christian image, too. You've captured it's meaning perfectly here. Gorgeous. Bev
