I am so excited to share with you this month's Stampin Friends Blog Hop! May's theme is probably the most difficult theme for me I always struggle making masculine cards. I don't know why, it just isn't natural to me I guess! I really have to stop and think about what I need to make. Even though some projects can be as simple as changing up the paper. Anyone else?
I hope you joined me from Tizina Milano's blog! And be sure to continue on to Kim Lamo's after viewing mine! There are so many amazing cards and projects so be sure to check everyone's out!!! And if you get lost along the way, there is a list of hoppers at the end of the blog.

Thanks so muc for stopping by!!!
I hope you enjoyed my projects!
Below is a list of all our hoppers this month!
Whether you’re preparing to make several cards to have on hand, or you just want different options for the same overall design, stepping up is easy and fun.In fact, it’s a bit like baking. Sometimes you just want an easy boxed sheet cake with frosting, other days you crave a homemade recipe with layers, and for special days you go all out with fresh berries and crème fraiche. No matter the level, we’ve got something for you—and you’ll love these projects made using the Floating& Fluttering and Sweet Strawberry Stamp Sets.
To make the casual card, stamp the butterfly images in Tuxedo Black Memento ink directly on the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper, then use the two-step images to add color and depth. Stamp off the ink on a piece of scrap paper to create varying ink tones. Then, die cut a few butterflies and pop them up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Step this card up by adding more color to your butterfly menagerie with Bumblebee ink. Cut a label from Bumblebee Cardstock using the Fluttering Dies, then stamp it with VersaMark ink to create a sophisticated tone-on-tone effect. Finish with an elegant tag made using Basic Black Cardstock and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. (All the butterflies on this card are die cut and adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals!) The Gilded Gems are the perfect finishing touch.
Our artfully avid card features distressed edges on the Designer Series Paper layer and embossing on the Bumblebee Cardstock label. Our concept artist colored the butterflies with Watercolor Pencils, and the subtle ink splatter (made using a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker) adds a lovely vintage look.
Happy Stampin Steph
