Butterfly Note

Hi Everyone,
I have been playing around with my alcohol inks. I made this panel using purples an d blue and was not so happy with how it looked, but I thought It would be perfect under that pretty Poppy Stamp die cut. I won that die cut from Poppy Stamps a little while ago by playing in their challenge - THANK YOU Poppy Stamps, I love it!

The sentiment is an old set from Papertrey. The paper under it is from one of those envelopes you get in the mail - you may want to check out their insides - sometimes its really pretty! I mounted the sentiment with foam tape. I also added more little butterflies - those are by Memory Box and some sequins.

I love how this turned out - alcohol inks = really cool!

That beautiful background works great behind that very pretty die cut. Great way to use it when you're not too sure of it...however I am sure it was fantastic! The sentiment and how you've done it, is perfect x Well done on the poppy die win x

You've certainly made an impact with your new butterflies die; how stunning they are in their alcohol-ink colours! Swooning!
Toni said…
Amazing save. Alcohol inks of glossy (vs Yupo)? Love the shine

I love that die set, lucky you winning that. The inked panel looks fab poking through the empty space. :)

Yep. This is most definitely a winner. First of all, that alcohol ink background pulls your eyes right out of your head...but covered with that amazing die, it just captures one's interest immediately. And who knew that envelope lining could be so interesting...certainly, not me.
Fantastic job resurrecting something you weren't in love with. I think it looks wonderful and purposeful! Just gorgeous under that die.

Thanks for celebrating our 100th post with us at Cut it Up!

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

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
