XOXO Butterfly with Hearts

Hi! I’m here with a quick post.

slide02  This card showcases many of my favorite tools, things and techniques.slide01I used the color red, ink-blending, hearts, butterflies, ‘XOXO’, camouflaged die cutting, and white space all together on 1 card! Ahhhhh!slide01

First I did some ink-blending on white cardstock. I used a Papertrey Ink Heart Cover to die cut the ink-blended hearts.slide04Then, I adhered a pattern of hearts to the white cardstock. I die cut the Happy Little Stampers Butterfly from the center of the heart pattern.

slide03I added the red card base and the attached the heart panel. I added the butterfly with foam tape. I finished by adding the HLS “XOXO” sentiment.

slide02I hope that you enjoyed your visit.

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,

Reverse Stenciling Hearts x 2

Hi! I’m here with 2 reverse stenciled cards inspired by Betsy Veldman’s Make It Monday #233: Reverse Stenciling.

Here’s the first card:

IMG_9714edited

First, I made my own stencil using PTI’s Heart Cover Plate Die. Then I sponged ink onto and through the stencil. I spritzed water onto the stencil and then sandwiched it between two pieces of paper, ink side down, and rubbed the top piece of paper with my hand.

  Next, I used the same technique, but this time I applied watercolor paints onto the stencil.

SAF 2015: Accessories Challenge

Hi! I’m here with a cute little necklace that I made for SAF’s 2015: Accessories Challenge.

I used PTI’s Heart Cover Plate Die to cut out the little white hearts. I was going to make a more grown-up necklace, but after I put the heart button (from the Wee Folk Kit) on top all I could see was a little pig!
