You Give Me Butterflies Card

This is another sentiment from my new My Favorite Things sentiment set.

The butterflies are all punched from American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim scraps with a Martha Stewart punch (it punches 2 small and one large butterfly at once, if you want 3 butterflies).

I did think, “oh, my, what have I gotten myself into??” about halfway through the gluing process. I am in love with the final card.

Supplies: Stamp – My Favorite Things, paper – American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Stardream Silver, ink – VersaMark, die – Lawn Fawn, punch – Martha Stewart, embossing powder – Stampin’ Up! Sterling Silver.

Watercolored Thinking of You Card – We Love Dawn Blog Hop

 

Dawn McVey is an artist/designer for Papertrey Ink, and she just seems like such a lovely person from her blog.

She recently had a small intestine transplant, and Papertrey Ink had a We Love Dawn Blog Hop over the weekend. I must have misread the deadline, I thought it continued for another day or two. ALAS, I seem to have missed the chance to link up to the hop.

Dawn loves bright colors, so I watercolored a background, and then embossed foliage in silver pearl embossing powder. I was thinking I would add sequins or jewels, but I tried several different combinations, and it was all just too much. It was just fine with watercoloring and embossing.

I already have this addressed and in the mail to Dawn.

Edited 2:40pm – OH! I see the link up is active again!  YAY!

Supplies: Stamps – Papertrey Ink, paper – Canson watercolor, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Pacific Point, ink – VersaMark, watercolors – Sakura Koi, die – Taylored Expressions, embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl, organdy ribbon – Offray.

I’m Here Card

I’m trying to fill up the sympathy section of my card basket, but I’m not sure if this really qualifies as a sympathy card (too frivolous?) or if it is a thinking of you card. I am going to put it in the thinking of you section for now.

Let me know – sympathy or thinking of you.

Supplies: Stamp – My Favorite Things, paper – American Craft Amy Tangerine Oh Happy Life, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Pool Party, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
