May's Stamp-a-stack cards

Here are May's Stamp-A-Stack cards. (I know I'm behind)

I wanted to show the versatility of the Thoughts and Prayers Stamp set and that is the focus of three of the cards.

This is a simple card that can be used for a man, or change the colors for a woman. Also can be used for a sympathy card by changing the sentiment (or leaving Thinking of You).

Recipe ~All supplies Stampin' Up!© unless noted~
Stamps Thoughts and Prayers
Ink Always Artichoke Classic, Pacific Point Classic (retiring June 30th)
Cardstock/paper Pacific Point, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla
Sizzix Big Shot, Top Note Die
Accessories Very Vanilla 5/8 Grosgrain Ribbon, Sponge
And so pretty!
You can whip these cute little guys up in no time flat! The background is the large stamp in the Baroque Motif set (one of my faves) and stamped in Versamark. The Butterlies are a Sizzix Die out of plain cardstock with a coordinating patterned paper and a simple rhinestone. And, they will fit into a Invitation sized envelope.

Stamps Baroque Motif, Curvy Verses
Ink Versamark, Basic Black Classic
Cardstock Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze (retiring June 30th), Pretty In Pink
Designer Series Paper Pretty In Pink (Level 1 Hostess Pattern Pack retiring June 30th)

Accessories Mono Multi liquid glue, Rhinestones (unknown)

This card and the next card I did the same technique on; using my markers to color the images on the stamp.
Even thought you can't really see the pattern on the Real Red is there! I used the Texture Plates and it really made all the difference in the card.

Lastly, I think this is my favorite one. I basically copied this card from the Idea Book & Catalog (page 91??) using the supplies I had.
