I adore the set from Stampin' Up's, mini catalog called And Many Mower. With Father's Day coming up, I decided to pull this out and use it. I decided this time, I would try to challenge myself not to use my normal 'soft' colors. So I did.
Stamp Set: And Many Mower
Paper: More Mustard, Whisper White, Bordering Blue (all from Stampin' Up!) and designer paper from The Angel Company.
Inks: Old Olive, More Mustard, Certainly Celery, Bordering Blue, Going Gray
This is an adorable stamp I picked up at Archiver's made by Stampendous. They are rubber cling on stamps. Just too dang cute!!!
Stamp: Monkey and saying both from Stampendous
Paper: River Rock, Bashful Blue and Manchester DSP from SU
Ink: Basic Black, River Rock, Close to Cocoa

Yeah, I know, I'm corny. LOL!
I saw one of the Pretties blogs, Can You Say Addicted To Stamps, and I fell in LOVE with the white on white. It seems kind of taboo, but I had to use this idea along with my GOOD friend Tonya's butterfly idea to come up with this cute little card.
I don't have the awesome butterfly punch, but I found these little stickers at the Dollar Tree.
Since it's 60 today...when it was 92 yesterday, I made a fall card. LOL! YES, I realize, we are only in June, but hey, you get your inspiration where ever it comes from. Right?
I don't know if you can see the top note die "shadow" behind the white top note, but all I did was cut one out in creamy caramel and cut it in 1/2 and only used the top and bottom pieces of the brown to make it look like I fit the white inside of it. Make sense???
I also ran the More Mustard thru the crimper for some dimension. I also added a piece of velvet ribbon.
Stamp Set: Branch Out
