Birthday Butterflies

I saw a card like this on Pinterest.  The negative space of the butterfly had Designer Series Paper behind it and just had to make one for myself.  It makes a bright and cheery birthday card.  The small butterflies were punched with the Bitty Butterfly punch and then used the Fancy Fan embossing folder on them for some texture and Dazzling Details for some sparkle.  The antennae are made with the stamp from Papillon Potpourri.   I am really liking the Washi tape!

Thanks for stopping by :-)

Coastal Cabana Sympathy

Hello Everyone, hope you're having a fabulous weekend.  I've done some water coloring with Coastal Cabana on the flower. I did use some Whisper White Craft Ink to add some highlights to the top of the petals for added contrast.  Pear Pizzazz for the stems and some Soft Sky around the image.  Paired Coastal Cabana with Island Indigo which really made the image pop!  Embossed the Very Vanilla with the Lacy Brocade embossing folder and added some ribbon.  

Thanks for stopping by :-)

Gingham Garden Thank You

I finally got a chance to use the new Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper, I love these colors together!  I am also enjoying the Simply Pressed Clay, had to play with it a couple of times, but it's easy.  Not much else going on in Illinois but a lot of rain!

Floral Thank You

Trying out the new Simply Pressed Clay using some Crisp Cantaloupe re-inker.  I put the clay in a plastic baggie with the re-inker and worked it into the clay.  Once incorporated, I was able to roll it around in my hands without getting re-inker all over me.  After they dried, I applied a light coat of Crystal Effects to make them shinny.  My fabulous up line Julie Davison challenged us to CASE (copy and share everything) a project from the new Stampin' Up! catalog.  I chose the card on page 27, as I thought it would be cute with the new clay flowers.  

Thanks for stopping by :-)
