I made several cards last night when I had a chance to play with my new stamps. I just love the new stamps!!! I really like how the lady bug body and wing color is a seperate stamp. I had to make a red and black card because I love the colors and I normally see red and black ladybugs. Although I have seen green ones, hmmm, maybe I could do some like that later!
Now this butterfly kisses card is soooooo not something I would normally make. I got some pattern paper that I wouldn't normally use to try to challenge myself to step outside my comfort zone. I'm normally into making "cute" stuff but this looks more, hmmmm, I'm not sure- maybe elegant? Who knows? But it is not the typical card I would make.
Now I think this one is a little more like my typical style. I used the Cuttlebug to dry emboss the cool carribean paper. I just love that little thing and I just don't use it enough! Then after I stamped everything I just had to add some glitter, which is typical for me. So I pulled out my glitter pen and traced all the swirls of the butterfly. If I had been thinking I would have just stamped it with Versamark and use my glitter embossing powder. But I don't tend to think that much ahead when I'm stamping!
I'll come back later today to post the blog candy winner! And I'll post a pic of the goodies!
