Pure Joy

Good Monday morning to all of you! You might have gotten here from Betty Bee's Buzz or you may have gotten here from Artful Delight! Either way, welcome! 

This week I am doing the tutorial on Betty Bee's Buzz! And in honor or her new grandbaby Paisley being born, we are having a baby week. So play along in the baby challenge and you never know what could be up for grabs! :) 

This card was inspired by my good friend June Houck! I was on the phone with her brainstorming and she brought up "onesie" which produced my a-ha moment! 


(If you have a Gypsy, weld the two together at the top and ignore step 1)
  1. Using Wall Decor and More™ cut two onesies out at 4" out of Butter cardstock. 
  2. Next cut one onesie with the swirl detail out of Summer Fun at 4". Adhere to card base.
  3. Ink around edges of card.
  4. Stamp Pure Joy and the little foot from My Pink Stamper's Sweet Baby™ set in Momento ink.
  5. Cut 2 one inch butterflies from Cake Basics™ (or any butterfly blackout or shadow cut - or punch for that matter!).
  6. Add white stones using your i-rock™ to the center of the butterflies. 
  7. Ink edges.
  8. Bend edges up around the i-rock™ stones making the wings upright.
  9. Adhere one of the butterflies to the mini clothespin and the other one to the onesie.
  10. Take two buttons and use twine to thread through the holes from the back and tie a bow in the front. Trim extra length off. 
  11. Using Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares™, attach one to each button back and adhere to card.
  12. Send the card to a friend!


Now pop on over to Betty Bee's Buzz to join in all of the fun of the challenge and pop over to Artful Delight to pick up this month's kit while you still can! They usually sell out quickly and I am SO excited about the kits coming up! They are going to be fabulous!

Now, my one year blog-aversary was last month and I totally missed it, so I am going to be having a blog-aversary party very soon! Stay tuned as I am ordering things to give out as prizes and I think everyone will be excited! :)
