Bugs and Butterflies MFP Stamp Shop Blog Hop - Day 3

Bugs and Butterflies
 Watch out for creepy crawlies !

Join us each day, April 26th through April 29th for a "butterfly-kisses" good time.  We'll have tutorials and Design Team inspiration.  There will be prizes for leaving comments on the Design Team's blogs and prizes for trying our tutorials.  You will have 2 weeks to add your project to the APRIL 29th post for us to see, so there is no excuse not to join in the fun.  

Please hop along with us.  You could win one of the MFP Stamp Shop bugs and butterflies related stamp sets.  Just comment on the following blogs (don't forget this one) each day for more chances to win.  You do NOT need to comment on on all the blogs each day as the names are drawn randomly.  Try one of the tutorials shown during the hop and add your photo to the Inlinkz at the bottom of the April 29th post. The winners will be announced on May 14, 2016 on the MFP Stamp Shop Blog. You can go back and comment if you missed a day. (HINT: The more you comment, the more chances you will have to win.  Comments left on the MFP blog count twice. ) The deadline for commenting and posting pictures of your projects is Friday, May 13, 2016 at 10:00 PM EST.

Do you ever find that after making a particular kind of card, your crafting area is just wrecked? craft room is a disaster!  And look at this beauty of a card.  I only wish you could also see the layer under the embossed vellum overlay.  It's really tough to see, but there are pink and blue butterflies amidst the orange.  I relied heavily upon Butterfly Essence for this gem!  It's an amazing background for multiple techniques.  It's featured at the top of the post.

If you didn't start at the beginning of the hop, you will want to do so.  Let's get started!  Here are the links for the rest of the Design Team: BonnieGail, KarenKrenLoisMariLynnPatPam
