Fluttering Wishes!

Hello ... Tejal here to entice you with some butterflies!! Some may call me crazy, some may call me mad, but my obsession with butterflies isn't likely to die...neither in my stamps nor on my cards....so don't say I didn't warn you! :) Without butterflies or bling, my card never seems complete!!

So what have I got for you today? I've got not one but two cards....Both have the same sketch to it, one is horizontal and one is vertical.
I had this sketch bookmarked for a very long time in my book....its a card by Lucy Abrams..She's a genius that girl!! Now when I see the card, I see the middle panel is leaning off to one side!! DARN!!

Those are some amazing papers from American craft's Hello sunshine collection! The ones I've used are Glow and Spree , The butterflies are from Hero Arts (Antique Engravings) and embossed with Versamark and Black EP(American Crafts Zing) and colored with Worn lipstick using Foam Daubers from Ranger.

I've used my Fiskars round squeeze punch...love it when I can see where I'm punching! The middle panel is popped up on dimensionals. And the border is punched using Apron Lace border punch..another Fiskars product. Sentiment is heat embossed with black..(Papertrey ink - butterfly dreams)

TIP - Do you see the pink strip along the green panel? Its the half inch strip that is at the bottom of your CS/PP where the name of the company is usually written...YES! I hoard those strips too...since usually they're in contrasting colors!

  
 Can you see the faint sheen of shimmer on the butterflies? Its the Stardust pen from Sakura...just enough bling..not too much! 

The second card now - 
This paper is from Fancy pants (Wishful thinking -Sprinkles) and Hello Sunshine (Gleam), and loved the slightly shabby tone to it...so decided to distress it using my Vintage photo distress ink...Butterflies are heat embossed...and the circles cut from the card above, are used in this card! :)

Sentiment again from PTI - Simple sunflowers.

Some more bling on the fluttering wings!!

  5. Even though I make cards with hardly any special stuff whenever I see your creations Tejal I am tempted to get embossing powders, cuttlebugs and what not. Karuna is surely a good businesswoman to enlist you in her DT team!!
