May Stamp of the Month from Taylored Expressions

Hey Everyone,

Hi Everyone,

This month's Stamp of the Month (SOTM) from Taylored Expressions (May '14) is called: Bloom and Grow and comes with coordinating dies called Hello Blooms The  deluxe subscription to the KI kit will also come with the SOTM (with dies) along with all the ingredients in the Key Ingredients Kit! What an awesome deal to get a monthly package of awesome crafty goodness!! 

For my project for today's SOTM blog hop, I used the lovely butterfly stamp set that comes with lines flaring out from the center and used the Hello Blooms dies butterfly shape to cut out the different butterflies inked with mixed ink colors. I paired it with some of the awesome DP papers from the KI kit (I love the grid paper and the multiple blooms papers!)

Here is a close up of the butterflies - I just love how mixing the inks with the stamp set creates some fun, different and unique butterflies. I added some different colorful buttons from my buttons stash and added some twine to the center and then used some glue dots to adhere it to the center. The edges of the butterflies got flared out by curling it with a pen - I love how these sweet butterflies on it :)
