August Calendar Page

Well, August has managed to arrive already! Here is my calendar page for this month.

The flower was made using a scalloped circle punch. After punching it, I cut towards the middle from each scallop using a scissors. I sponged a little bit of brownish ink around the edges. The center was also cut with a punch, and then embossed with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. The leaves are lemons from a Technique Tuesday set:)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Butterfly Thinking of You

The green "splotches" were stamped at our Group Gathering using a Stampin' Up! stamp. When I got home, I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with it! I think this works. The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up! "Sincere Salutations" set. The butterfly was cut using a Memory Box die. I matted with sage green cardstock.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Wedding Wishes

I die-cut this beautiful design using a Memory Box die at our Group Gathering. It was cut from ivory cardstock. I scored two lines on each side of the design. I added glittered cardstock beneath the die-cut. The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up! wedding set and is stamped with a brownish ink. I glued the panel directly to the front of the ivory card base.

Birthday for a Guy

More "card parts" on this card. This card base is actually from the second card in this post, after I removed the image panel. The image is from Repeat Impressions. I stamped it on water color cardstock and painted it with SU! inks. I matted with black and mounted on Dimensionals.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Butterflies and Best Wishes

I've had this background piece in my "card parts" for over a year. It was done by sponging distress inks onto ivory cardstock, then spritzing a stencil and placing it over the inked piece. The water removes the ink and leaves the pattern of the stencil. I die-cut the edge with a Memory Box die. The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up! set called "Sincere Salutations." I added a couple black strips along the left side. The card base is ivory.
