Butterfly Effect

As I was playing with My Digital Studio software this week I stumbled across this butterfly image.  It was love at first sight and I quickly decided to create a card using it. If you already have My Digital Studio, the download that includes this image is First Edition Stamp Brush Set (124409) and it is a 3-piece set that matches the First Edition Designer Series Paper.

I paired the butterfly image with two other stamp sets I earned free during the Sale-A-Bration promotion (free gift with each $50 you order). 

As I decided on color combinations for this card, I realized that although I had three of the Pattern Designer Paper Stacks, I didn't have the fourth -- the one with matching patterned paper I needed for this card.  My Digital Studio software to the rescue yet again!  I was able to download the paper stack I needed into My Digital Studio  and within minutes I had my Regal Rose Polka Dot paper from the Pattern Designer Paper Pack printed on a sheet of Whisper White cardstock on my home computer and ready to use on my card. 

This is a hybrid card using both digital images and rubber stamp images.  I made two versions of this card, each using a sentiment from the So Happy for You Sale-A-Bration stamp set.  The other image is from the Bliss Sale-A-Bration set.  Reminder:  Free Sale-A Bration Sets can only be earned until March 31. 

Here's what I used:
Stamps:   So Happy for You Sale-A Bration set, Bliss Sale-A-Bration Set, First Edition Stamp Brush Set (Digital Image)
Paper:  Pretty in Pink cardstock, Basic Gray Card Stock, Regal Rose Polka Dots from Brights Collection, Designer Series Paper Patterns Stack (117155), although I used the digital image.
Ink:  Basic Gray
Accessories:  5/8" Basic Gray Satin Ribbon, Vintage Flowers Adornments Dimensionals, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Dimensionals

Designer Series Paper Patterns Stacks are available to match the Stampin' Up! pallet of colors and original images.  Designer Series paper makes it easy to create a card or scrapbook page with coordinating background paper, card stock and stamped images.  Each Patterned stack includes 40 sheets (4 each of 2 double-sided designs in 10 colors)  Check out the Brights Collection here:
