Hello and Welcome to my Blog! To those of you who are here because of the Creative Blog Hop, I thank you for visiting! Donna Kish asked if I would be willing to participate in this hop and I thought it sounded fun! Donna is super talented!
My card today uses my favorite bundle, Butterfly Basics, from the newly released Occasions Catalog. Love the stamp set and framelits ! This bundle is offered in wood mount, clear mount or photopolymer stamps! How great is that! (and they are discounted 15% if you order the bundle!)
To create my card, I started with the Sweet Sadie washi tape – and used these colors for my card – pistachio pudding, crisp cantaloupe and basic black.
This card went together very quickly.
I started with a base of 4 1/4 x 11 of Whisper White cardstock and scored it at 5 1/2.
Inks used: Memento Tuxedo black, Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe.
The butterfly was cut out using my Big Shot and the gorgeous butterfly framelits that are part of the Butterfly Basics bundle. I finished the butterfly with a rhinestone.
Since my Gorgeous Grunge stamp set is always on my desk – I grabbed one of the stamps, and added a few light “splotches” with Pistachio Pudding ink.
I punched a Whisper White circle with the 2 inch circle punch – and used the embossing folder to create texture on the circle.
The Sweet Sadie Washi Tape secured the tea lace doily (this is just a 1/4 piece of a doily) in place.
I added a “swirl” of white bakers twine and finished the card by adding the embossed circle and butterfly.
And here is another similar card that I wanted to share -just added a crisp canteloupe circle and changed up the greeting.
And here are my answers to the blog hop questions –
1. What are you working on? I am working on catching up with blog samples and class projects. My oldest daughter got married two weeks ago and I have been very focused on creating things for her wedding – it was beautiful and I was thrilled to get to use my love of crafting and stamping to add some special touches to her wedding! Now, getting back to more regular blog posting and creating.
