Butterfly embellishments.....using Gossamer Blue June Kits

Hey there.  I recently shared a post over at the Gossamer Blue blog.  You can hop over there to see how I pair Gossamer Blue kit items with items from my own stash to create some beautiful cards. 
We all want to get the biggest bang for our buck so it only makes sense to reach into our stash of dies, Washi tape and other supplies. 
Keeping our supplies in a constant rotation is the key to really using all of our goodies that we've collected over time.
I hope you enjoy my set of embellished butterfly cards and that you get inspired to dig deep into your stash of items.
It's amazing how just a little bit of thread from an old spool.....a tiny strip of washi tape....some new brads and paper.....stamps from some older sets....it all adds up to projects that look trendy and fresh when you combine the new with the old.
Thanks for stopping by today.  I'd love for you to leave a comment letting me know what older items you're reaching for these days.  It's amazing to me how completely new and fresh things like die cuts look when you just use some new patterned paper, etc.

I love your cards Michelle. They inspire me.
I am going to use my paper crimper on some cards. I bet most people got rid of theirs!

Love your butterflies with brads! You never see anyone using brads any more, but I recently organized my crafting stash and I have TONS of brads, so you've inspired me to make use of them! You're right - pretty paper, washi tape, die cuts - awesome results! :)
