I Brake for Butterflies!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a birthday card that I made just to add to my stash.

I just received the set Things With Wings.

I used a large and a small matching butterfly from the set.

I stamped the images on some very thin pink handmade paper that had some gold metallic flecks in it and then added some detail with some Marvy markers.  They're so delicate and beautiful in a real butterfly.

I Brake for Music!

Hello!  There are a bunch of musicians in my family so I am often drawn to the music themed stamps. I like this collage stamp because it is a little different.

I stamped onto pink cardstock and then distressed the edges of all my papers with brown ink.  I also added some water marks to age the stamped image further.  

This Music Collage set has some wonderful sentiments, but right now I need Thank You notes so I used this sentiment stamp inside instead. 

Thanks for visiting today!  Keep on stamping!

There's on in every crowd!

Hello and happy Saturday!

This is one of my all-time favorite stamps.
My sister's birthday is next Sunday and I thought she'd enjoy this.  She prides herself on being unique.

The inside says "There's one in every crowd."
Happy Birthday!
I just love the "side eye" glances the fun bird is getting!

I Brake for more Hydrangeas!

Hello from Heidi!  Renee shared a gorgeous card the other day using this same hydrangea stamp.  Great minds must think alike, or maybe we both have been admiring the pretty hydrangeas in so many people’s yards this time of year. 

I used Prima Watersoluble Oil Pastels to stamp this card.  You just color the crayon right on the stamp, spritz with water, and stamp.  I continued spritzing with water and stamping out more generations without applying more color.  

I stamped my sentiment on light green and did the matting in plum cardstock.  

The stamps I used today can be found in the store here:  Half Sheet 137A, and Memories Comfort You.

Thank you for visiting today!  Have a good day and keep on stamping!

I Brake for Hydrangeas!

Hello and happy Tuesday!

Today I'm sharing a birthday card that I made using a hydrangea from
Half Sheet 137A.

I wanted to make this a very girly card so I added some sparkle and a ruffly ribbon along the bottom.

I also added some white Nuvo Crystal Drops to the center of the flower so when you touch them you can feel the texture.
