Inkspirational #48

I saw this inspiration picture at Inkspirational, put it mentally on my to do list of challenges, promptly forgot about it until.....


 recently when I rummaged through my papers I found this gorgeous patterned paper from DCWV and thought it would be perfect for this..... But how to make it into a card?.....I finally checked the linky list for the expiration and guess what - another last minute project.... So quick thinking was required......


I die cut the butterflies from gold foil and gold embossed the sentiment. 


I put the sentiment on an additional strip of PP and used foam tape to give it some dimension. The butterflies are also adhered with foam tape. Its not really my style, but I really like it! I like how the sentiment plays into the dream of the picture and the butterflies go along with the gorgeous bird. Even the colors kind of match up. 

I am also linking this card up with the CHNC Patterned Paper challenge
and with Shopping our Stash - Cabin fever

But now, I think I'll go back to my usual CAS kind of style......on my next post. See you then!

Vielleicht nicht dein Stil, sieht aber total schön und gelungen aus! Ab uns zu muß man auch mal was neues ausprobieren! Das schwarze Papier sieht echt toll aus, wie eine Schiefertafel und alles passt so wunderbar zusammen.

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
