Cards for all occasions

Yes, we all need to send these cards, it is a sad fact of life. When deciding on a design for this card, I thought of quietness, softness and simplicity in style.  The soundless flutter of butterfly wings, the softness of their landing, and the fact I wanted a single element on the card.  Using a butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set, I heat embossed onto our Silver Foil Sheets with White Stampin' Emboss powder.  I punched out the image and then layered it onto our Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and a square of Silver Foil.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments Stamp Set.

I was impressed with how the heat embossing worked on our foil sheets and I really love the card.

Happy Crafting

Hello again!

Hi everyone, welcome back! Thanks for popping in again.

I have been watching videos on YouTube to learn "how to blog" and I'm happy to report, I've learnt stuff! Yay! So much so, that I can speak about "techie" stuff. Related to blogs anyway, haha. And I feel I have enough confidence to participate in our Art With Heart's next team blog. So stay tuned for that one coming along in May.

In the meantime I thought I would share a photo of our grand-daughters 1st birthday card that I made.

I've used the Playful Pals stamp set to create the bunny. I've had this stamp set for ages and sadly I just haven't used it much at all. I stamped it in Pink Pirouette and added a little bow from the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch made with the gorgeous Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Paper from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue. The gingham paper is from Succulent Garden DSP and I have used the Falling Petals TIEF from our Occasions Catalogue. The sentiment is from an old Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Hello.

I had fun making this card and wished I had of created more with the stamp set which is sadly retiring on the 31st May.

Anyway, thanks for checking in and see you all next posting
