I love how you can always cover up those mistakes somehow and the card still looks great, or at least I thought it turned out pretty good. The ink colors I used were Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Old Olive and Pacific Point which are all from the Brights Collection. I used the same colors of cardstock for the butterflies and added a Pearl Basic Jewel to each one. The base of my card is Tangerine Tango with a layer of Basic Black and then I stamped on the Whisper White.

HERE using Real Red Cardstock, but for the Garden Green stem we used a die from the Flower Flair Thinlets. We embossed the strawberries with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder. We put a Hershey's kiss inside each strawberry. We used Baker's Twine to gather the strawberry and stem together. It is not in the picture, but we added some hand-picked signs inside our baskets from the Hand-Picked Framelit Dies also from the Occasions Catalog.

This is another Tea Party card invite made with Strawberry Slush cardstock made into a gate card. The background stamp is Something Lacy from the 2015 Occasions Catalog and embossed with Winter White Embossing Powder. On top of that is a Tea Lace Paper Doily cut in half. The Tea Party stamp in embossed with Whisper White Embossing Powder and cut out with the Ovals Collection Framelits and attached to the left side of the card.

I stamped the Swallowtail stamp on 4 1/4" x 11" Whisper White cardstock with Memento ink. I colored it in with my Daffodil Delight marker and Blendability (retired). I cut out the right side of the butterfly to open the card with the butterfly wing.. I stamped it again on another Whisper White and colored it in but cut out a partial butterfly and attached over the first butterfly to appear he is in flight. I used Pear Pizzazz to add the leaves from Butterfly Basics by stamping off on scrap and then on to get a softer color. On the inside I stamped a verse "When my mind wanders, I usually find it somewhere thinking of you" which is from the hostess set Bloom with Hope.

Finally used my Tea Party card that has been on my shelf since I bought it and never used. I also never used my Delicate Design Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I wanted to make a Shabby Chic type of card using Stampin Up! items. This is not really my style, but a friend of mine's granddaughter is having a bridal tea party soon and wanted to see some samples. The color she wanted was pink, so why not use Blushing Bride cardstock, of course. I also used Soft Suede and Very Vanilla. The background stamp is from the 2015 Occasions Catalog called Something Lacy which I thought would be perfect for my card. I sponged the edges with Soft Suede to give it a more vintage look.
The stamp set Painted Petals is from the 2015 Occasions Catalog. The stamp set has 13 stamps but mine actually had 18 when they first manufactured them. I had to align the flowers, leaves and stems separately which involved 7 stamps. So if you order this set now, it will be much easier now that it only has 13 stamps. The Designer Series Paper is from the 2015 Occasions Catalog called Painted Blooms. The ribbon is the 3/8" Stitched Satin Blackberry Bliss.

The Blackberry Bliss cardstock was inserted into the Spring Flowers TIEF through the Big Shot.
