Butterfly Card & Butterfly Kisses!

I hoard paper! I have to admit. I recently went through my designer paper stash and got rid of quite a lot of it. And to my credit, I have not entered a Michael's or Hobby Lobby in months. I really could papercraft from my personal stash for YEARS. I would quickly run out of certain solid colors, but otherwise I would be fine. How about you?
Having said all of that, I would love to know what designer papers you've fallen in love with recently! Leave me a comment and I will draw a name and send the winner an RAK!
As for me- my recent obsession is with K & Company papers. I absolutely LOVE their "Urban Rhapsody" line. I used three of the papers from that pack on this butterfly card for Taylor's TESC84. I also used the Xyron Creatopia for that embossed scallop border. Ain't it cute? The sentiment comes from Paper Trey's "Little Lady" set and I also used the "trail" stamp from that set for a template for my jeweled butterfly trail. Fun and easy.
I had a very productive stamping weekend and I've got several cards on my desk to edit and post. I may have to post every day this week to get caught up!
Don't forget to comment! One comment per person please. I will draw a winner on Monday, October 19th and contact the winner. If you don't leave an email address, you'll need to check back to see if you've won!
Have a blessed day!

After staying away from those types of stores for a few months myself, just yesterday I purchased a paper stack called "Whimsy" by DCWV.
I enjoy using their desiner papers as they have glitter paper stacks which coordinate with the non-glitter stacks. My favorite stack is "Animal Crackers" -- it is such a fun stack to work with especially for babies and young children or zoo pictures in a scrapbook! Thank you for sharing!! ~Amy S.~

I enjoy the K&Company, embossed paper.
I have a hard time finding this. But when I do I grab as many as I can.

LOVE 'em all, but lately I'm drawn to the beautiful fall colors of Basic Grey's Indian Summer! Thanx for the inspiration, Angel, and the chance at your blog candy!
