studio stampers blog hop

Welcome to the studio stampers blog hop with my a muse "cousins".   We are all lucky to have Krystie as our upline lady.  If you are joining the blog hop, you should have arrived from Karen Crisp's blog (My Paper Paradise).

Onto my card, I just adore this layout by Maile Belles, but am in denial about fall being so soon and couldn't bring myself to use "fall" stamps.  So here's a more summery take on it.

ink: A Muse heather
paper: A Muse blackberry, heather, amethyst, kraft, & woodgrain
other: A Muse die cut; twine

Okay now you're off to check out the goodies at Lianna Vigil's blog (Llama Tales).

Beautiful! Love your layered butterflies. and fwiw, since we've had such a cold summer in the Pacific NW and Bay Area, I think we should hang onto summer as long as we can.

Such a lovely cards, I've just got to get the butterfly dies off my wish list and into my stash - if only money were no object :)

Another beautiful card, Kari!

I'm not part of the hop this time around but I still HAD to check out your cards! The 3 layer butterfly is genius. So delicate and simple. Love it. Thanks for inspiring me.

On another note, I'm also always inspired by the spot you take your pictures...it makes me want to move! I'm originally from New England but currently live in Texas. Sigh...I miss my trees!
