Butterfly Cards

Hey There!

Intricate cut butterfly shaped card.

I’ve got two cards to share with you real quick today.

I recently received the Close to My Heart You are Enough bundle that includes an amazing layered butterfly thin cut die.

I used that die to make these two cards. The first card is actually butterfly shaped.

I placed the solid butterfly thin cut die on a folded piece of paper with part of the wing just off the paper so the fold wouldn’t get cut.

I just use some old CTMH paper in my stash to cut out the three butterfly layers and create this colorful card.

The next card is a take on my Tea Party 3D Interactive Tag Card.

Layered Butterfly Fun Fold card.

This was made exactly the same way, except I created this layered butterfly instead of the tea party tag.

This paper is also an old collection from my CTMH stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!


Besties Card

Hey There!

Card featuring two girls as besties with flowers.

I’m just stopping by really quick to share this “Besties” card. These two girls were inspired by my daughter and her best friend.

The girls are from the “Besties” collection by Close to My Heart. They have several stamps sets featuring different girls and their hobbies.The flowers are also from Close to My Heart as part of the Daisy Meadows collection.

I used the CTMH Circle Shaker Thin Cuts to die cut the circle the girls are standing in.

Everything is colored with Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Brush Markers.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram!

Matching Card and Tag

Hey There!

If you seen any of my previous posts you’ll know that I’ve only been creating using supplies in my stash.

This card and tag set is no different. I was very happy when I found these scraps from Close To My Heart. The colors and big flowers make me so very happy.

Since I happened to have a piece of vellum within arms reach of me at the time, I also incorporated vellum into the mix!

If I had to choose one embellishment to use for the rest of my lift it would be these little gems. But, for some reason I haven’t been using them on my cards!

You can see I certainly made up for it on this card.

Because I’m a firm believer in “there are no mistakes in scrapbooking” I’ll tell you that two of these gems are covering a smudge because I had wet glue on my fingers 😉

Pokemon Mice Card- Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 97

Lawn Fawn Mice colored as pokemon characters

Hey There!

Lawn Fawn has their Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 97 going on right now. The theme is movie, song, or book!

At my house there is always a Pokemon show or movie on my tv. My son loves loves loves Pokemon.

I colored some of the mice from Bubbles of Joy stamps and Lawn Cuts coordinating dies to look like a few favorite characters.

For little Bulbasaur I use two of the hearts from the set and created this little plant pod on his back.

The Pokeball is one actually made of two of the bubble stamps. The large bubble with one of the smaller ones on the inside.

Charmander mouse is breathing fire and has a flame on his tail from the Little Dragon Set. The word “Adventure” is also from that set.

The other words are from Unicorn Picnic.

Lawn Cuts Stitched Hillside Borders and the Cloudy Stencil make up the background. I used Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass with the stencil. The grassy hills use Distress Oxide Rustic Wilderness and Bundled Sage.

Lawn Fawn Mice As Pokemon on Card

Each little mouse, bubble and Pokeball is colored with Spectrum Noir TriBlend Brush alcohol markers. The Pikachu was actually colored with Copics because there is no good yellow in the TriBlend Brushes.

Other than the lack of yellow, I’m in love with the TriBlends Brushes. Having three shades in one marker is great!

I’m am so pleased with how this card turned out. My son was pretty impressed as well 😉

Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my Lawn Fawnatics Challenge entry!


Sunflowers In Denim Card

Sunflowers in denim pocket

Hey There!

I’ve got another card made using papers and stamps from my Close To My Heart stash!

This time I’ve stamped these build-able layered sunflowers. They are fussy cut, you know how I love my fussy cutting, and arranged in this layered denim pocket stamp.

For the pocket I used blue Distress Inks on the paper and stamped onto of that. Otherwise, there would have been some white showing on the pocket. This seemed to give it a much more denim feel.

It was my first time using Distress Inks! Another thing that became popular between by first scrapbooking days and now. I’ll be playing with these more.

Sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers. I wish we didn’t have to wait until Fall to see them!

Even though they aren’t a spring flower, these sunflowers give me hope for warmer sunnier days.

We’ve still got snow cover, although our days are getting warmer so the end is in sight!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stamping!
