Happy Mother's Day

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

Hello everyone,

I am here playing along with WPlus 9 - Throwback Thursday challenge and Simon Says Clean and Simple.  I have had this butterfly frame for a while and thought this would be a great challenge to make a card with it.  I created a Mother's Day card since Mother's Day is in a couple of weeks.  I started out with an A2 card, and cut the piece of back ground paper, I thought the paper was a perfect fit with the butterfly die. I die cut the butterfly die frame with my big shot and adhered it to my card.  The sentiment is from the stamp set Strictly Sentiments 4.  I stamped the sentiment with Memento Black using my Misti and my card is complete.  Very clean and simple card.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope to see you again soon!

Hello everyone,

I'm stopping in with a2z Scrapbooking April's challenge.  The challenge this month is to use any kind of stencil. My card is an A2 card, I used the Arrow Pattern Stencil and inked it with the Hero Arts Ombre Butter to Orange ink.  I tried to do an ombre look, but I think I need a little practice.  I cut the "hello" from the Hero Arts stamp and Cut set Hello.  I sponged it with the ombre ink.  I cut a black piece also and offset it to give the hello some dimension.  I cut a circle in the center of the card, and centered the Hello.  I curved the sentiment and stamped it with Hero Arts Black ink.  Love the bright color of the ombre ink.  I have to find some more projects to use this.  I want to practice the ombre look.  So, you still have a couple of more days until the end of April to join in on the fun.  I can't wait to see what you create.
