I used the Stampin’ Up! stamp sets called Watercolor Wings and Hello Life to create my card for the Sunday Stamps color challenge this week.
Here are the colors for Sunday Stamps SSC109. Be sure to stop by the Sunday Stamps blog to check out what the other Design Team Members have created with this sketch and be sure to play along too!
The design for my card was inspired by Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 284.
I started by inking up the sentiment from the Hello Life photopolymer stamp set in Island Indigo and Crushed Curry inks. I inked the majority of the image with the ink pads and filled in the remainder of the images with the Island Indigo and Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Markers, then stamped it on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.
I inked the dot image from the Watercolor Wings photopolymer stamp set in Pumpkin Pie ink, stamped it off on scrap paper, then on the focal panel. I repeated this process a few times randomly across the panel. I adhered the panel to a panel of Pumpkin Pie card stock with SNAIL, then to an Island Indigo card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I inked the background butterfly image from the Watercolor Wings stamp set in Daffodil Delight ink, stamped it on scrap paper, then stamped it on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock. I stamped the butterfly layers in Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie inks over the Daffodil background, then inked the edge image in Island Indigo, stamped it on scrap paper, then over the butterfly.
I cut the image out with the Butterflies Thinlits Die, then stamped the body of the butterfly in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I adhered the butterfly to the card front with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
I added an Iced Rhinestone Embellishment near the sentiment to finish the card front.
I stamped the butterfly images from the Watercolor Wings stamp set again on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock. I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Pumpkin Pie card stock, then to the inside of the card.

Good morning, Amy.
Just an FYI ~~ I believe the sentiment on your lovely card is from the Hello Life stamp set and not the Feels Good stamp set. I enjoy seeing all of your card creations.
Stampin’ hugs, Kathy
