Im sharing a card with a design I made a few years ago, its been a while since I curled any blooms or butterflies.

Very simple as you have seen some of the other Design Team members already do this technique. Simply roll the die cut with any small item , I used a crochet hook.

I used a brush to blend some inks onto a piece of card stock . I think the brush has a softer look and I have more control of the even-ness!

I used two colors of ink to give e a bit more detail to each die cut. After the butterflies were cut out I brushed along the sides to cover up the white and give a bit more color to each edge.

Florisima Trail
by Sue McRae

Welcome, I hope you've been following along with us this past week with the blog blitz we have going on. There's another week left of new products and fabulous inspiration by the design team.

P1350046c

Today I'm showcasing the Florisima Trail die. When I saw this die the first thing I thought of was using it to create a butterfly trail and that's exactly what I did.

Out of white linen card stock I die cut the Florisima Trail so that it would start at the butterfly and end off of the paper. I then flicked gold paint across this panel.

P1350106c

I took a piece of white card stock and created an inky rainbow using Distress Inks and gave it a quick spray with Perfect Pearls. I adhered this rainbow piece behind the opening in the white panel and inlaid the flowery trail right on top.

I die cut the largest butterfly from the Stitched Butterfly Trio from white card stock and inked it up with Distress Inks in blue and purple and sprayed it with Perfect Pearls. Then I die cut the butterfly three times from black card stock and adhered all the butterfly layers together by adding adhesive to only the centre of the butterfly so the wings could be fluffed.

P1350080c

The butterfly and Scribble Thank You were adhered to the panel and that was attached to a black card base. I finished off the card with some gems.

If you would like a chance to win the Florisima Trail die, just leave a comment on this post.

Make sure to come back every day during the blog blitz and comment on each post for your chance to win the featured die.

Happy crafting!

Hi there friends, hope you are all happy and well! We have been enjoying so much needed rain here in California with green hills and mountains! Many sunny days mixed in as well! 

I used this sweet Heart String die from Poppystamps to create a birthday card for one of my sisters that has her birthday near, St. Valentines Day.

 I simply cut out 5 colors added a bit of adhesive to the back and then fanned them out. I used the new Poppystamps ; Grateful Hearts Stamp set for my sentiment.

There are many  little sentiments to chose from  in this set, this will be for a birthday .

I cut down the Heart Pattern Plate , then layered the Floral Stem Collage on top twice, I have one slightly to the side of the first one. 

The top layer of the flower is embossed with the extra layer that comes with the die.

I added fun foam under my top green panel.

by Marybeth Lopez

 Hi there ! I have a few cards to share with you in the next few days. First up I am using my wonderful 

Circa A, B, and C from Birch Press Design. I so love that set!  

DSC_0267mittens

 I found that the sweet little , Stitched Mitten Square fit very nicely inside the center of this card. 

DSC_0274mittens

I think I will be using this card for a babies first Christmas or just Christmas . I may stamp on on the outside when I decide.

I like to wait to stamp until I know for sure who or for what the card will be used.

I find it saves time when I need a card .

 

Thanks for the visit and I hope you have a great week!

Bellina Butterfly
by Marybeth Lopez

DSC_0203pink

 Hello! I started this card by blending ink over my panel, after I was happy with my pink sponged panel I placed the Flutter stencil on top, using the same color ink . By using the same color its just a bit more subtle .

DSC_0214pink

I die cut the beautiful Bellina Butterfly squares a few times, blending the top layer of the frame, as you can see I did some darker blending so it would give a bit of variation to the image.

After the layers were adhered together I used a shimmer pen in the center.

 I will add my sentiment when I know the recipient of this card, could be sympathy, congrats , birthday or even baby.  Its ready to go!

I pray you can find peace and joy in everyday and share it with those around you .

Thank you for the visit.

Feel Better Soon
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Susanna blossom poppy Welcome to Spring and allergies! Which then brings colds and other illnesses. So,  I Decided to make a cheerful Get well card. I used the Susanna Blossom Die to cut out on watercolor paper. I then used the Zig Kuretake watercolor markers to color my flowers. I then Bunched them together and tied with some hemp cord. Susanna 2 I added glossy accents to the flowers and then mounted them to the card panel with foam squares. I love to mat my focal image with several layers of colored card stock for a really nice finished card. Susanna3 have a lovely day! Lezlye Signature copy
