Some Yummy New Paper

I have to share a couple things I found recently that I just fell in love with.   One is this paper pack from  Die Cuts with a View.    I don't know how long it's been out, but I just recently discovered it at Joann's.  It came in a 12x12 pack and the 4.5 x 6.5 which is what I got.  Perfect for cards.  It is really the most beautiful paper I have seen in a while.    All of the cards below were made with it.












All I added to this card above was the stamped butterfly with the text and the happy birthday.   Otherwise that is how the sheet of paper comes from the pack.   It's probably hard to see the glitter on this sheet and some of the cards, but that is what makes this paper really cool.  Lots of glitter and shine to it.
The butterfly stamp was another thing I wanted to share.
The two sets of clear stamps below were from the $1 stamps section at Michael's and are some of the nicest $1 stamps I've seen so far. 



On my last card I duplicated one of the sheets in the paper pack and created my own background.  So I stamped a butterfly stamp from PSX repeatedly on my background to create to own paper.

All of the images I've used here are from Digital Collage Sheets.
