I love the Best of ... series that Stampin' Up! is releasing monthly.  April's Best of ... set was:  Best of Butterflies.  What is more springlike than butterflies and flowers.  My two cards feature both.

The first card uses the Best of Butterflies and Best of Flowers stamp sets.  I just love how some of the butterfly images work with our punches.  I am not the best with scissors, but I can punch.  This card uses Raspberry Ripple and Very Vanilla cs.  The DSP is from the Print Poetry DSP paper stack from the Spring Mini.  Ink colors are Summer Starfruit, Raspberry Ripple and Primrose Petals.  Other accessories are:  Raspberry Ripple satin stitched ribbon, Oval collection framelits, dimensionals, Elegant Butterfly punch and snail.
 Here's a close up of the butterflies and flowers.
 This next card uses the Big Shot with framelits and an embossing folder.  I have to say my Big Shot is my favorite tool I own. Soft Suede, Very Vanilla and Calypso Coral cs.  Floral District DSP and Soft Suede taffeta ribbon.  Caylpso Coral and Soft Suede inks.  Adorning Accents embossing folder, large scallop edgelit, and Bitty Banners framelits are the Big Shot tools.  Also used the Best of Butterflies and Itty Bitty Banners stamp sets.
 This shows a close up of the scallop edge, adorning accents edgelit and the butterfly hand cut.

I hope you are enjoying my cards and the blog tour.  Check out Susan Carlson's blog to see what great ideas she has created for your viewing pleasure.  Stop back next month as we will be featuring another Best of ... stamp set.
