Clearsnap and The {Stamps} of Life Blog Hop

Welcome to The Clearsnap{The Stamps} of Life by Stephanie Barnard Blog Hop! All today it's about stamping and inking, creating and sharing. Be sure to visit everyone on the hop and leave a comment to be entered to win a fabulous prize of Stephanie Barnard’s line of ColorBox inkpads, Stephanie Barnard Sprays!, and Stephanie’s new SCREENS!

I love the Clearsnap Stephanie Barnard Colorbox ink pads.  They come in such pretty colors and always just make your images "pop."  :)  I did a quick and easy card using one of my favorite ink colors in these ink pads....Grape (it even sounds good.)  ;)  I chose The {Stamps} of Life clear stamp set called banners2cut for this card.  I also used a Sizzix Textured Impressions Chevrons embossing folder.  The cardstock is by Diecuts With A View (in light orchid and violet colors).  The butterfly was done with a Martha Stewart punch (probably the punch I use more than any other).  :)  So the next time you are stamping and want pretty colors and crisp images, reach for Clearsnap's Stephanie Barnard Colorbox Dye ink pads.  :)

Such a clever use of flags/pennants, and you have to love all those chevrons! That touch of bling in the butterfly centers is pretty too.

very pretty. Love the purple. The pennants kind of add to the length of the wings of the butterflies. Great job.
