Butterflies Birthday

I have had a note to make a background like this on my desk for months, and I finally did it. I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers directly on an acrylic block and then spritzed with water and placed it on my cardstock. When it was dry, I added a bit more color with Distress spray. (That doesn't show up very well in the photo.) I die-cut the butterfly piece and also the sentiment. The sentiment is layered with three die-cuts and also has a vellum shadow layer.

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

Paper-Pieced Flowers

More paper-piecing on this card. I stamped and heat-embossed the floral image onto patterned paper and then I used four different patterns of the purple cardstock for the flowers. I cut the flowers out and added a bit of purple ink around the edges. I also used Copic markers to color the leaves and stems.

February Color Swap

Here is the card I made for the color swap in my stamping group. The colors are gray and raspberry. I cut the panel on the left with a die. I embossed the right side with a Darice embossing folder. I placed this piece over gray cardstock. The sentiment was embossed with Versamark and mounted on foam squares. It's from Papertrey Ink.

Sending Birthday Wishes

I have had a bunch of these large flowers in my "stash" for many years. I've always thought they were too big to use on a card, but they have remained in my room anyway. Finally one of them made it onto a card. I cut the ferny leaves with dies and colored them with Copics. The sentiment strip was in my card parts and I do not know what company made it. The matting on the sentiment and the flower center are glitter paper.

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

Paper-Pieced Trees

Hey, finally a card that does not use pre-made card parts! LOL!

I used Gina K stamps on this card. The trees are paper-pieced with Bo Bonny patterned paper. The image panel is mounted on foam squares. The stamping is all heat embossed with black ink and clear embossing powder.

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