Butterflies

 Hi Everyone,



I'm still on a background making kick, so for this card I inked up the new Fillagree Butterfly and stamped it all over the background.  Coloring them up using my Copic markers, it created a nice backdrop for the Happiness Butterfly Greeting.  It was simply die cut and enhanced with a bit of lavender ink.



The butterfly embellishment is two die cuts with some glitter glue that was adhered only from the center, so that I could bend and shape the wings.

Be sure to stop over at DRS Designs to see all the new stamps, and to score the retiring ones before they're gone!

Happy days to you....

Congratulations Babies!

 

I needed a quick  baby card and it needed to be neutral. MICHELLE MONKEY - 871E is perfect for a baby card.

  • I stamped MICHELLE MONKEY - 871E and colored the image with copics.
  • Next, I die cut the baby jumper.
  • The GRAD SAYING - 622G has a great Congratulations on it and is perfect to use for any congratulations on a card and is a great way to stretch your stamps. I stamped just that on the white card stock then die cut the layer.
  • I added a die cut baby rattle and popped the baby jumper up on dimensionals.
  • The panel was added to a script emboss folder and layered on brown card stock.
When I think of new babies, I also think of new fur babies. I have a second card this week welcoming a new fur baby.

This card features the new LET'S PLAY PUPPY - 1110F. This card is a slimline card front.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my cards this week.
   
 

Birthday Blessings

 Good morning friends!!

I did some sprayed ink backgrounds for these cards today, mostly in pinks, purples and blues. With this I added a die cut green leafy mini slimline background with tiny flowers attached.  My DRS stamps for this card are the new Filigree Butterfly and new Birthday Blessings.  The butterflies were stamped and embossed with clear then sponged with color.  I found that the Distress Inks my Tim Holtz work best as they completely cleaned off the embossing as desired but I tried a bit of Archival on parts and unfortunately it stained the clear embossing.  It still turned out pretty though!



What do you do with left over background pieces?  Well you make another card of course!!
The card background is another sprayed ink background but the strip is what was left over from my first card background paper.


I did the top card butterflies and this one all at the same time, same piece of paper then fussy cut each one.  I used a lavender rhinestone for the butterfly heads.

Thanks for visiting today!

A Birthday Pup and a Fun Background

Hello Crafty Friends!  Happy Wednesday.



I am still loving the new Let's Play Puppy image. I wanted to do a fun background, for him so I combined the Dog Paw Background, an old Birthday embosssing folder, some leftover strips from a Tim Holtz Thinlet Die, and two parts of the Hot Diggity Dog Birthday Greeting

A super fun card to make.  I love coloring this puppy image.  

Hope you are having a wonderful week!

Hugz,

Background Papers

Hi Everyone,



I'm having fun stamping background papers recently, so here are some that match the adorable Cow Cutie stamp you've been seeing on the blog.



I stamped the top portion using the Camouflage Background in black ink to match the cow spots, and the Checkerboard Background in red along the bottom.  I covered up the seam with a punched border and attached the cow to a paisley dry embossed die cut.  I finished it using the new Udderly Wonderful Birthday Greeting because it's just perfect.



\


The only change I made, was putting the top portion on the front in a die cut and stamp the rest inside.  




I couldn't resist stamping the Cutie Cow one more time too!

Thanks for stopping by!

Karin
