St. Patrick’s Day Card – 2019

I am ahead of schedule with this (St. Patrick’s Day cards usually fall through the cracks for me – very last minute!) – but I need it off of my “to do” list. This is for my parents.

Supplies:  Stamps – Hero Arts, Just for Fun, paper – My Favorite Things Field Day, Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream, Stardream Metallic Gold, inks – VersaMark Vintage Sepia, VersaMark, die – Spellbinders, embossing folder – Provo Craft, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail Gold.


So Special Butterfly Card

I made this blended background ages ago, it was just hanging out in one of my folders. This week, I thought it needed a butterfly!

Supplies:  Stamp – My Favorite Things, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy, Stardream Metallic Flame, Strathmore Bristol, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Ink Blueprint Sketch, VersaFine Clair Twilight, dies – Hero Arts (butterfly), Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Simon Says Stamp (banner), stencil – Heidi Swapp, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.


You Are My Anchor Card

Recently, Simon Says Stamp was giving away the Gina K. Designs mini wreath builder template and stamp set with ANY order. So, I went scouring for a mini stamp set and die (less than $10 total). I wound up with this Waffle Flower set (I already own multiple anchor stamps/dies, but no sentiments that coordinate with an anchor). Great! AND I dug up a $5 coupon, which helped with shipping.

I blended distress inks over a stencil onto Strathmore Bristol paper – so smooth for blending.

Supplies: Stamps – Waffle Flower, paper – Curious Metallics Shadow, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Strathmore Bristol, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – My Favorite Things (pierced rectangle), Waffle Flower (anchor), stencil – Simon Says Stamp, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear, floss – DMC.
