Life Is Beautiful Card

  Hello glad you stopped by. We are already more than  half way through April. Seems to be going by so fast. 

I have been having some fun in my craftroom creating some cards for some challenges.  

STAMPlorations is having their Things with Wings Blog Hop and Linky Party. My last two cards that I made was with birds. I entered them both in the linky party.

Today I have another card that I created for the link up and for a few other challenges.

For this card I used a stencil from STAMPlorations called Bloomdalascopic. This was my first time using a stencil and as you can see, I didn't do the best job at keeping the colors from mixing together and thought about starting over and seeing if I could do a little better the second try. But I decided to use it. 

It was actually a lot of fun to get my ink pads out and try a stencil. I'm going to have to get some more. 

I received that pretty little butterfly in some happy mail that someone had sent me. Glad to find the perfect card for it. 

The embossing folder is called Seeing Spots, All the inks used are from S.U. 

The sentiment is from My Creative Time stamp set called Cherish this Moment. Also used a scalloped rectangle cutting die and Mellow Moss Ribbon.

If you would like to join in on the fun and create a Things with Wings project there is still time. If you don't want to make anything you can still hop along and see the awesome creations from the design team. 

Here is a link for you.

  3. I think you did a nice job with the stencil. I love the dot embossing folder! It is so nice to get some happy mail. The rain has stopped awhile here but it is making a return soon. As long as it isn't snow! We got our 2nd shot Friday so we are feeling a little better about this virus. Take care.
