I used the Large Nested Stitched Frames dies- used the largest one 2x.  One in black and one in pattern from the Love you More Paper Pack from La-La Land Crafts.  I cut along the stitched line to make a smaller frame to mat.



I used the cupcake die, cut on the same Neenah Classic Crest cardstock and colored with Illustrators as well.  


I added a bit of glitter to the cupcake top like sugar sprinkles.


I used the cherry die from the March 2020 Club La-La Land Crafts kit to add a cherry on the cupcake.





The Rolled Rose- Small and Medium dies were cut with black cardstock and added to the card. 

The Love You more paper pack was used for my various layers.





Next I used the Happy Birthday Die to add to the bottom of the card.


A few gems from Pretty Pink Posh- Luau collection add the finishing touches.

Dragonfly from Sweet Manhattan Stamps

I am back with another fun card.    I recently found a shop - Sweet Manhattan Stamps and not only is the owner incredibly sweet, they have such fun rubber stamps and super fast shipping.   

I was excited to play with the Dragonfly Set-  119A.




I stamped one of the dragonflies, on Neenah Classic Crest card and colored with Spectrum Noir Illustrators.

Colors used:
GT1, GT2, GT3
PP1, PP3, PP5, CR5


After it was colored I fussy cut the image out.



I then used the Mintay Birdsong 6 x 6 paper pad from 7 Kids Crafts and some brown cardstock from my stash.

I distressed the edges of the cardstock and pattern paper for a bit of a vintage feel.



I inked the edges of the papers with Spectrum Noir Juniper Water Reactive Ink.

I used the Nested Frames from La-La Land Crafts for the sentiment and I just love this quote from Emily Dickinson.



I hope you enjoyed and will go check out Sweet Manhattan Stamps!

See you soon!
