So Suzy - Dancing Butterflies

 Hi Everyone,

I am back today with another card I made from the wonderful So Suzy June release:

I just thought the butterflies and sentiment go beautifully together and could make a really pretty sympathy card.
The stamp is called Blowing Butterflies.

And this is the sentiment:
 I used black and yellow Brusho powders to create the background. I waited until it was dry before I heat embossed the butterflies and sentiment. 

I picked up some of the color with a water brush and painted in some of the butterflies to make them stand out a bit more: 

I trimmed off some of the side and used dark blue card stock as border. Added some sequins and rounded the right hand corner.

In case you are tempted to order stamps ;) 
I have a 10% discount code for you for the month of June (almost over...) - its

Happy Stamping!

Fabulous background with the brusho's and loving the colour combination of the black and yellow. The white embossing pops against it, thank you for the inspiration x

Awesome. The black Brusho has so many other colors in it. And lifting some of the color from the butterflies is a brilliant idea. Really beautiful card with that amazing sentiment. Made me verklempt.

What an amazing background! Love it! Thanks for joining us at ATCAS.

Der Hintergrund ist ja wild geworden. Die Schmetterlinge können davor nur tanzen, sonst werden sie ganz wirr im Kopf und wissen überhaupt nicht mehr, wie sie fliegen sollen *lach mich schlapp*
Liebe Grüße

Großartig!! Die Brushos sind schon mega geil!!
LOL!! After I stopped drooling about his gorgeous card, I went ahead and ordered a few beautiful stamps, they have some really awesome images.
But back to your amazing card.....the colors and the way you made this wash is truly spectacular, I need to learn to do this but I always feel intimidated by this technique, I just end up with a muddy mess. I guess I need to keep trying, right?
Thank you for sharing and for the coupon code, I can't wait till the stamps arrive.
Big Hugs,
Maria Rodriguez.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
