Today's Featured Stamp Set, Cracked Hello, and my projects:

Cracked Hello... buy it HERE
Isn't this stamp set just cool? My mama loves butterflies. Every time I see a butterfly, I think of her. 
For my project, I decided to create some mini cards and a fun little note card and envelope holder to store them in. I used the Artiste cartridge (Thanks, Lucy!) to cut the "purse" (aka mini note card and envelopes holder), the mini cards, and the envelopes for the cards. This was a very fast project. It just all came together easily.

I thought the purse just needed something. So I added the ribbon purse strap, a button, some white doodling and of course the new HELLO stamp from the Cracked Hello set.

My cards have the same front flap as the purse flap.
More white doodling, some inking around the edges, and of course some of the new stamps from the CRACKED HELLO stamp set.

I stamped the butterfly twice, once above HELLO and once hanging off the side.
The butterflies are colored with pencils.
The background is chalked very lightly just to give it some color.

I thought the envelopes should match, so I stamped the butterfly on the flap and then added the HAPPY DAY stamp from this same CRACKED HELLO new stamp set.

This set was so fun that I decided to make another project using these stamps.

Again, I used the Artiste cart for the tag base cut @ 5 1/2" and adhered the scallop oval tag with an Action Wobble (thanks, Theresa!). The butterflies were stamped and colored with colored pencils then cut out and adhered with foam tape for dimension. Their wings are curled up also as "in flight." The cracked background and sentiment are also from this AWESOME stamp set. Twine and gingham ribbon added for fun.
