Topflight Stamps - Live Life Now

    Hi Everyone,

It's Topflight Stamps day! 
I made a gel press background with Fresco chalk paints for this weeks card.

Before I stamped the butterflies, I sanded the background to make it nice and smooth. Stamped the butterflies and sentiment. I let some color drip down from the wings. Added white accents to the wings as well as some turquois Stickles. Splattered some black paint (Tattered Angels)

I also sponged around the edges and added some gems for extra interest. Trimmed off a tiny bit from the bottom and added a small strip of black paper.

I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting. 
See you next week with more Topflight Stamps inspiration.

Here are the stamp supplies I used:

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
