Fun With New "Schtuff"


I recently won 2 gift certificates to Stamplorations & didn't wait long to spend them. My goodies were waiting for me yesterday when we got home from running errands & I had to make a card.  I used Trendy Butterflies stamp set & Confetti Circles stencil. My inks are Memento Gray Flannel, Tuxedo Black & Distress inks picked raspberry, shaded lilac & peacock feathers.  The area for the stenciling was masked with Washi tape & then edged with Score Tape for the prisma glitter.  My favorite emboss resist technique worked perfectly with these gorgeous butterfly images.  I added white cotton thread saved from clothing tags along with white sequins to embellish the butterflies.  To be sure they didn't move, I attached them with a small piece of redline tape only in the center & lightly pulled up the wings.  The Easter greeting will go on the inside & this gets mailed tomorrow. The sketch at Uniko Studio inspired me, but I probably got away from it too much.  
I'm entering Stamplorations March challenge & ongoing Anything Goes challenge. Other challenges where I'll play are Uniko Studio, SSS Wednesday & of course, Darnell's NBUS.

  15. Congratulations on winning some new stamping toys. I love that masked off technique and adding the glitter really makes it pop. Great, soft butterflies. Thanks for the hint about the challenge. I saw a similar card like I made in a stamp shop. It had a different sentiment and wasn't colored but otherwise pretty much the same so I didn't want to enter it in case it was a copy of the original. It's my understanding you can use something for your own inspiration but not enter it in challenges, so I respect that. But thanks again. There are so many challenges out there and I sure don't know them all so any help is appreciated.

  17. What a soft and pretty trio of butterflies. Thin redline tape down the centers of the butterflies--that's very smart to give their wings lift but ensure they don't take off.
