I also used a Trendy Leaves Die to cut a leaf out of a (partially imperfect) gold embossed bit of stamping I had done for my previous tag for this challenge.

I recently had a birthday and so used some STAMPlorations gift certificates that I received to order the coordinating Trendy Leaves 2 stamp set. I am looking forward to using the stamps and dies together on some projects.

I re-purposed a piece of the first attempt, flubbed up stamped image of  STAMPlorations’ Zen Coffee ATC #1 and ended up with a nice leaf for the in today’s post.

I’m excited to be part of this new challenge and hope that you will join in the fun.

STAMPlorations Things with Wings Spring Blog Hop & Linky Party – Moments

Hi! I’m happy to be here with you for STAMPlorations Things with Wings Spring Blog Hop & Linky Party.

The event will have one main day (April 5), with extra posts on the following 3 Wednesdays. We will be showcasing spring-themed projects (cards, ATCs, tags, postcards, etc.) that have wings (birds, butterflies, dragonflies, etc.).

No automatic alt text available.

Here’s my card for today:

I am in the midst of an international move. So, this sentiment is a good reminder for me!

I like the bold colors of this card, which I paired with the delicate roses.

 The black butterflies are recycled masks which I used on the April 19th card for this hop and on 1 other project (my June 19th tutorial).  You’ll have to wait for that second one for a little while. 🙂

I used alcohol markers to color the images and card front.

I used STAMPlorations Trendy Butterflies 2

and Row of Roses.
