This stamp set is extremely versatile.  Look at that flower in the top left corner.  You can drag it out and reshape it, so that it looks like a cloud.  Need a box for journaling, check out the stamp in the bottom left corner.  Do you want to highlight someone or something specific, us the arrow!

such a pretty you

Here is some artwork that the staff at Close To My Heart put together:

To create this card:

For this card, we cut out the large butterfly stamp image a few times and then layered it to make it dimensional. Here are the steps so you can make it yourself: - per the Close to my Heart website.
  1. Stamp butterfly with Desert Sand ink on Colonial White cardstock. Using a craft knife, cut along wings, leaving body intact. Mount cardstock piece on Cocoa cardstock and Bamboo B&T paper. Pop up wings using 3-D foam tape.
  2. Stamp butterfly again on Crystal Blue B&T paper. Cut out entire image, omitting body. Mount on Colonial White butterfly using 3-D foam tape.
  3. Stamp butterfly a third time on Sweet Leaf B&T paper. Cut out entire image, including body, and mount on Crystal Blue butterfly with 3-D foam tape.
  4. Accent body with Opaques Mocha adhesive gems.
