So Suzy - Fancy Butterfly

Hi Everyone,

I finally own this wonderful lacy butterfly from So Suzy - it was on my wishlist from the very beginning, but patience pays off...

Of course I HAD to use it!


My stamps supplies:


And that is how I started:


Heat embossed the butterfly with WOW embossing powder onto acetate and colored the back with alcohol inks.


Fussy cut it and added the sentiment to the bottom of my card. Selected the stencil - its on of those beautiful iStencils, some of which you can also get at So Suzy's.




Sponged distress inks onto the stencil using the same colors as for the butterfly.




Propped up the butterfly with thick foam tape


Added Nuvo drops - this is the clear one, called Morning Dew.


I just love how this turned out! Having the light shine through those lacy wings and reflect onto the card stock is magical!


I hope you like it as much as I do!

Oh My Gawd, Oh My Gawd, Oh My Gawd. You think your happy with how this turned...I'm ecstatic. Dear heaven...it's downright fantastic. Such a brilliant idea to use the alcohol inks on the embossed acetate to achieve that ethereal look butterflies always have. Then that multi-colored stencilling to add movement and enhance the already gorgeous butterfly. This amazing card is exactly why I stalk your blog, dear friend.

Oh my word!! This is STUNNING!! I cannot believe you used a heat gun on acetate!! Mine always melts. I thought this was a die cut at first. You did a fabulous job!!

I love the intricacy of that die, Cornelia. I'm glad you showed us what you did because I though the color was a separate piece, not embossed acetate. I need to put that technique in my memory bank. You ended up with the most fabulous card.

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
