I placed a few glittery enamel dots from Doodlebug in the corners.

Butterfly Meadow from Crafter's Companion

I read a quote once that really resonated for me- "without change there would be no butterflies"- this is so very true.    I love butterflies so I was so excited to color this stamp up from Crafter's Companion- Butterfly Meadow.





I stamped the butterfly 2x with Finesse by Spectrum Noir- Alcohol Proof Ink in Noir Black on Neenah Solar White Classic Crest Card Pack.   

I colored with Spectrum Noir Original Coloring System markers:  BT1, BT3, BT4, BT6, IG3, IG5

I added the Crafter's companion Scalloped Filligree border die and added it in between my 2 butterflies, which I fussy cut out of the cardstock.


I also used some Black Matt Cardstock from Crafter's Companion which is my hands down favorite black cardstock.


I used some teal cardstocks from my stash, as well as a few gems from Studio Katia to add the finishing touches.

I hope you enjoyed!


See you soon!

ATC's with 7 Kids Crafts and Spectrum Noir

Today I am back with a fun project for 7 Kids Crafts and Spectrum Noir.   Every month 7 Kids Crafts does an ATC Swap.  This month is using a silhouette stamp.  I used Moon Fairy from Lavinia Stamps

I love making ATC cards and blending with Spectrum Noir Harmony Water Reactive Ink.


I cut my paper down to 2.5 x 3.5


I used 3 colors of SN Harmony Water Reactive Ink:   Lemon Tonic, Honey Pot and Chinese Red.

I started with Chinese Red




I like to use my ink blender and put a bit of ink on my Glass mat.  I just like the blend that I get.


Once I put a base of Chinese Red down I moved to Honey Pot and repeated the same steps.

Don't worry about having the perfect blend just yet as you will work back and forth with your ink.


Repeat those steps with Lemon Tonic your lightest color.


Once I had all of the colors applied, I worked backwards and blended each color out.   




Now that I have my base and am happy with it for the effects I want to get I inked up my stamp and stamped my image. 




Next I spritzed my cards with water to allow my ink to react.




Because these need to not be very bulky I can't add a lot embellishment wise so I decided to use a few gems from Pretty Pink Posh.   I put a few drops of wet glue down and used my gem tool to place my gems.






I absolutely love how these turned out and had so much fun.  





I hope that you will check out the ATC Swap over at 7 Kids and all of the great inks from Spectrum Noir.   


See you soon!

Scripty Notes from 7 Kids Crafts and Mama Elephant

Today I am back with a fun card featuring Scripty Notes from Mama Elephant, our vendor of the month over at 7 Kids Crafts.  Use code "MAMA" to receive 20% off items in this category.    Our Product of the Month is Nuvo Drops.   Use the same code for that discount. 


I wanted to do something a bit different for this card.  I used the "you're my favorite" sentiment and stamped on an oval die from the Nested Oval Dies #1 from The Stamp Doctor.  



I cut a banner flag and scored it to create a fold and matted it behind my inside mat so that it would fold over.   I can completely close my card and have my sentiment closed, almost like a partial belly band.   



I added some flat back pearls and a few tiny dragonfly dies to my sentiment band and on the inside and also added a few smaller flat back pearls to the dragonflies as well.  

The finished product shows that you don't need a lot of elements to create a fun card and I love how it turned out.  


I hope you enjoyed!  

See you soon!

Love Notes with Graphic 45 and 7 Kids Crafts


Today I am back with another fun project with 7 Kids Crafts.   A while back I picked up the Love Notes 12 x 12 Collection (I believe is out of stock in her shop currently) because I love everything Graphic 45 but did not have much of an idea on what I wanted to create.

A few posts back you will see a card I made featuring this paper, but today I share my favorite creation.

My husband and I are going on 10 years married and I have to admit I have slacked on scrapbooking the photos- scrapbooking any photos to be fair.  




I was looking at this paper and it dawned on me I had the perfect wedding photo.   This is one of my favorite photos for several reasons.   We were married in Vegas, with 50 family and friends joining us.     Me trying to save money opted for the “canned” music.   The day of the wedding they told us the couple before us had opted for the live piano player so he was there, and if we wanted him to play we just needed to pay him direct.     I was a nervous wreck as was and deferred to my husband to be.    He told my maid of honor it was my day and it was my decision.    We ended up with the live music- so this piano and the fact that my husband wanted the day perfect for me has my heart.

Now back to my creation.    I used some cardstock from my stash and a some red crystals I had.    I also used a resin charm I had in my stash to add the finishing touches.   I inked my pattern paper with Tim Holtz distress ink in black soot.

It’s a very simple (in my eyes) layout but one that will probably go in a shadow box as a great memory of that day!
