Hearts and Butterflies Wedding card

I created this card for Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I recently purchased the Fancy Foild Designer paper which is so pretty.  Just perfect for a wedding card.  I used the vellum paper with silver hearts and silver glimmer paper.  I added a few die cut butterflies and hearts and VOILA! a beautiful wedding card.

Easter Egg Wreath Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color challenge.  I’m still in Easter card mode so I created this Easter Wreath card.  The eggs are die cut with the Extra Large Oval punch and the images are from the Everybunny stamp set and colored with a blender pen and ink pads.  The solid color eggs are textured with embossing folders and decorated with butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.  I also die cut the flowers with Trio and Boho punches.

Clean and Simple

Clean and simple is not easy.  It’s difficult to create a card where you have just enough and not too much.  My card is mostly white except for the butterfly and sentiment.  Dimension is created with layers and texture.  It came together very quickly once I decided to use the Floral Fest stamp set.  I stamped the flower image two times with Whisper White Craft ink and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  The outer layer is punched with the Large Scallop punch and the next flower layer is hand cut with paper snips.  LOVE the Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  It adds so much without being too glitzy.  Click the image to enlarge and see the Iridescent Ice sparkle.  Here’s a sneak peak of one of the new In Colors Island Indigo.  The butterfly and sentiment are stamped in this new In Color.  The punch used for the sentiment is the Decorative Label punch.  Click here to see how to punch.

No calorie birthday cake

The slice of cake I made for you today has no calories.  It’s a fun box you can decorate as a party favor or to fill with goodies or a gift card.  The box is made from a die I’ve had for a while and it was time to use it.  One of the great things about the Big Shot is you can use different kinds of dies from different manufacturers.  I die cut the cake slice then embossed with the Finial Press Folder.  I decorated the slice with doilies punched from the new Doily Triple Layer Punch, pearls and ribbon.  I served up my cake slice on a circle scallop plate I embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder.  The candle is made with Very Vanilla card stock then decorated with a strip of Melon Mambo.  I freehand the flame using Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight card stock.  Making this cake slice was a lot of fun.

If you’d like to make a cake slice box but don’t have a die click here for a template.
