Remarkable Blog Hop, Any Choice Bundle

This month for the Remarkables Blog Hop, we are sharing items made with any bundle in the annual catalog from Stampin' Up.  The catalog has lots of bundles and the awesome thing about a bundle, besides that the items go together is that they are discounted 15% and really, who doesn't like a discount?

I have a bunch of the bundles, and they're all pretty awesome.  How to pick one to feature here?  I went with the "cards I need to send" inspiration.  Last month we had a family reunion at my brother's house in Utah.  We're in Maryland, so it was quite a trip.  We had 24 of 25 family members there (Although a few of his college age kids were only there for part of the time).  We all stayed at his house which fortunately had enough room for us all.  My husband and I stayed in the "princess suite" also known as my niece Amy's room.  So, I have been planning for a few weeks to make her and my niece Rachel (my daughter and Amy slept in her room) some thank you cards.

With this blog hop coming up, inspiration struck in the form of the Watercolor Wings bundle and the color purple (Amy's room was purple).  Now, I'm gonna throw it out there, that I think the catalog is a bit heavy on butterflies this year.  And, I like butterflies ok, but not that much!  BUT, when I saw this set, it went on my first order!  Crazy, I know.

So, the cool thing is I made the three butterflies the same.  Soft Sky, Sahara Sand, and Wisteria Wonder, all spritzed with water and stamped on our watercolor paper (you might need to dry them a bit between colors).  Then I just started playing around!  It's pretty cool how different the cards came out.  It's all about the embellishments!  I also used a few stamps from the Tin of Cards set, but if you've been reading my blog, you already know that I love that stamp set.

I ended up with three cards, the last one is going to my other niece who will be starting 3rd grade this week, and she LOVES butterflies! Let me know which one is your favorite.
