Pink Butterfly and Stitched Satin ribbon

Are you ready for another 2-layer card?  I think I’m starting to be addicted to this challenge!!!  I used the “Papillon Potpourri” stamp set to make this card.  I wanted to make one butterfly really “pop” so I stamped it with StazOn black ink and colored it with markers and with the blender pen. I then added Crystal Effect over.  It is really coming out of the page now!  Too bad the picture really can’t capture the effect!!!  I also used the FREE Stitched Satin ribbon in Primerose Petals.  Have you got your free ribbon yet?  There’s only 3 days left! Don’t miss it! Email me your order today!!!

For the background, I stamped as many butterflies I could in Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose.  I also added some ink spatters (in Pretty in Pink) with the Color Spritzer Tool.  (I’m starteing to be addicted to this new cool gadget too!!!)  I used the Paper Piercer tool to make a dotted line to show that the butterfly was flying.  Maybe not the best I’ve ever done but it still looks OK…

My husband said that the butterfly looks like a “real 3D sticker” from the store.  I said “No, I did it myself!!!” and he replied “this is a good thing, you know…”

Ornament Keepsakes with Crystal Effects

The new Ornament Keepsakes stamp set is one of my favorite in the Holiday mini-catalogue!  I used that set as well as the matching Framelits dies to make this card.  For the “center part” of the ornament, I stamped it with Midnight Muse ink and colored it with Markers.  I used Crystal Effect on the center to make it “glossy”.  I wanted to make it look like a stained glass ornament.  I think the effect is nicer in real life than on the picture… I used the Paper-Piercing tool and the Paper-Piercing pack to make the “hanging” string.  It’s so easy when you follow the template: perfectly lined up and spaced!

Masculine Birthday Card

This is the card I made for my brother.  I used a new stamp set from the big catalogue called “Clockworks”. I think this set has great potential especially for masculine birthday!!! (Those are always harder to do, it seems…) I used the color combination of Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade and Basic Gray.  For the clock, I wanted to make it look like there was a glass over it, so I used Crystal Effect all over it.  I know it’s hard to see on the picture, but in real, it appears shiny and it’s really nice, trust me!!! I used the new Chevron embossing folder in the background.  Also, I stamped the happy birthday on Vellum card stock and attached it with a mini silver brad.
