Sparkly Butterfly

Hi! Today I have a card for you that was inspired by Kylie Bertucci’s card here.

My version uses the Bold Butterfly detailed thinlet to create my mask for my background.  I sponged Watermelon Wonder over my mask.  The sentiment is from Flourishing Phrases – I just love the font in that set.  I added a bit of sparkle to my butterfly using the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen.  Here is a closer look at that:

I just love how this card turned out!  A little inky, but fun, technique – and a great way to use your dies!

Sunset Bird

Hi!  Welcome back!  Today I am playing along with this week’s Global Design Project Sketch Challenge – #GDP042  – using the new Best Birds bundle.

SU! Best Birds, SU! Layering Circles Framelits

I sponged the sunset by creating a circle mask the same size as my card front – makes it easy to line up and achieve the look I wanted.  The circle template is made using the largest circle in the Layering Circles framelits.  The bird and branch were first inked using markers directly on the stamp – and then shaded in using a blender pen and ink pads.  I like that I was able to get the details from the outline but still add muted color using the blender pen.

Hope you like it!

Rainbow Hearts

Hi & welcome!  I am Teresa Howe from Northboro, MA in the USA and I am playing along in Kylie Bertucci’s International Stampin’ Up! Blog Highlight!  The theme is Love.  I don’t live close to my family and thought this card lets them know I think of them often.

SU! Suite Sayings, Hearts Mask

I hadn’t had a chance to play with my heart mask too much, and thought this the perfect reason to break it out and play.  I tried a variety of colors – all pink, all red, a mix of both pink and red, and then decided to go bright and make a rainbow of hearts.  What do you think?

The sentiment is from the Suite Sayings set in the Occasions catalog and just perfect to let those near and dear to you how they make you feel. And while it doesn’t show too well in this picture, the Pacific Point Stitched satin ribbon is so shiny – I LOVE it!!

If you like my card, I hope you’ll vote for it on Kylie’s page here.  At the least, I hope you will hop over to Kylie’s and check out all the other great projects all made with Stampin’ Up! products and filled with tons of inspiration for you!

Thanks for stopping by!
