Hi Everyone!

Bet you're wondering why 3 images? ;) I wanted you to see the difference in glue used for the stem. On the top image I used the Tombo glue.(it was the glue within reach!) Normally fine but it was a little too thick for the project and dried 'wet' looking. So on the middle image I used the 2-way glue pen and it worked wonderfully. This is the card I made while filming the video. Still getting use to working upside down! And the third image is image 1 beglittered! Even a mistake can turn into an opportunity. I added some glitter so now all the glue is hidden and looks intentional. (little do they know, right?!) I had an extra flower around and added on the scallop trim. Now my 'mistake' is my favorite version!

I finally got to play with my new Flight of the Butterfly stamp set, 111564! It works in tandem with the Butterfly punch 116629. Talk about cute and easy! Stamp and punch! I love the saying that come in the set too. How to make:

  • Standard card base
