Butterflies & Roses

Hello crafty friends! Today I have some fresh inspiration for you!

First up is the Lace Butterfly Cutting Die by Die’sire Create-A-Card™. I cut the image from Red Holographic Ripple Paper and then lightly sanded the wings for a distressed look. After covering the blank card with Sunday Musings Paper Pack I placed Illuminate Enamel Dots on the butterfly center and Card Greetings Dazzles™ Stickers on the card bottom.

Don’t forget to bend the wings slightly to give them a little lift.

Next, this card still uses the Sunday Musings Paper Pack and Red Jewel Butterfly Dazzles™ Stickers along with the Heidi Swapp One Of A Kind Stamp Set.

I stamped roses from Heidi Swapp One Of A Kind Stamp Set along the bottom edge of white cardstock to create a border.

And then I used Primary Tones Chameleon Pens to color the roses and leaves.

If you have never used the Chameleon Pens they really are amazing.

Check out this video that Gail made.

That’s all for today. Try to make some time in your busy schedules to make something pretty to share.

Happy crafting!

New Beautiful Borders Engraved Dazzles™ Stickers

Hi everyone! I’m excited to show you Paper Wishes New set of Beautiful Borders Engraved Dazzles™ Stickers! This line of Dazzles™ is different because they have a transparent finish and the gold and silver embossing is bolder and includes etching. They are really stunning!

The set comes with 5 sheets of gold and 5 sheets of silver. So many possibilities!

 

For this card, I used a Center Step Die-Cut Card, Paper Painting Paper Pack and Ribbon Set, Gold Tiny Words & Phrases Dazzles™ Stickers and Bright Spectrum Noir™ Pen Set.

When using Spectrum Noir™ on Beautiful Borders Engraved Dazzles™ Stickers, or any alcohol-based pen, it is important to color on the back of the sticker (yes, the sticky side). If you color on the front, the alcohol will remove the embossed metallic finish. Fortunately, Spectrum Noir™ Pens are designed to adhere to slick surfaces, so the color won’t come off.

For this rose card I used both paper and chalk on the back of the stickers. Ruby Rose Paper Pack and Ribbon Set made just the right background for these pretty roses.

Once again I turned the sticker over and this time I brushed some green chalk onto the ferns and leaves.

I backed the double rose sticker (separate sticker not part of the border) with mauve paper that I first smudged with dark red chalk.

Then I added dimension by aligning the rose images and foam taping one over the other.

Thank you for stopping by. Remember to leave a little time to make something pretty! Happy crafting!

Rooted In Love Paper

More NEW Hot Off The Press Paper! The Rooted In Love Collection is rich in texture and colors and is perfect for everything from family to garden themed paper crafts.


This card uses the Rooted In Love Paper Pack, Dazzles™ Stickers and Ribbon Set as well as an Oval Paper Doily. I also Gold Embossed a BoBunny Laser Cut Chipboard Butterfly.

I love that the Rooted In Love Dazzles™ Stickers are a combination of black and gold! Mixing them together on a single project really adds interest and sparkle!

I used the surface of a VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad on the surface of the butterfly and then sprinkled with Gold Embossing Powder. I then heated the image with Heat It Craft Tool to create a gorgeous, customized butterfly!

For this page Debbie altered the color of the gold Rooted In Love Dazzles™ Stickers by coloring them with a Brown (EB8) Spectrum Noir™ Pen. She even added a little cat from The Cat’s Meow Dazzles™ Stickers! Cute!

 

Don’t forget! Each Hot Off The Press Paper Pack comes with a FREE digital download of amazing coordinating art for our projects.

That’s all for today. I’m currently working on a new Premier Scrapbooking Personal Shopper Monthly Kit. I LOVE the papers and I think you will to! Happy crafting everyone!

Angels & Butterfly Cards

Hi everyone! Today I’m bringing you things with wings, or Angels and Butterfly cards, which are 2 of my favorite ethereal images.

First up is a Frame Pop-Out Die-Cut Card using Sara Davies Guardian Angel Cutting Die.

The Frame Pop-Out Die-Cut Cards come ready to decorate with your favorite papers and embellishments which makes this card a snap to put together!

I love the intricate details on this angel. She is so beautiful!

I used gold and black papers, from Christmas Wonder Paper Pack, on the inside frame and sides and added Red Jewel Border Dazzles™ Stickers for sparkle.

I die cut the angel from Metallic Gold Paper,  backed it with Vellum and embellished the skirt with Red Jewel Dazzles™ Stickers and a bow made from Christmas Wonders Ribbon Set.

For the card front, I traced the frame pattern onto Red Christmas Wonder Paper and matted it with Vellum.” Merry Christmas”  was cut from Metallic Gold Paper using Christmas Script Greetings Cutting Dies.

This butterfly card contains some mixed media elements. After covering the card with Winter’s Butterfly tan text paper I tore papers for the border.

Next I used Flutterby Butterflies Stencil and a lavender ink pad along the right edge.

When using the  Layering Butterflies Stamps, I like to use the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform and 2 shades of purple ink.

Finally, I used the Layering Butterflies Cutting Dies to die-cut each large butterfly, create a top layer from blue paper and I added foam tape under each wing to give a lift. Stamp some small dark purple butterflies and embellish with Stickles Silver Glitter Glue and add “Love” cut from both navy blue paper and Metallic Silver Paper using Script Greeting Cutting Dies.

That’s all for today. Have a wonderful week and try to leave some time to make something pretty and pass it on to someone else. Happy Crafting!

Winter’s Butterfly

Hello everyone, I have a wonderful new paper collection to show you! Winter’s Butterfly Paper Pack combines the unexpected themes of butterflies and snowflakes beautifully!

I love the page that Debbie made using Winter’s Butterfly Papers, Scrapbooking Dazzles™ Stickers and Purple Jewel Dazzles™ Stickers.

This stunning butterfly card features the Christmas Clearly Creative Kit, which includes 5 sheets of printed acetate, each with a different Christmas theme. Susan used Tim Holtz® Alcohol Inks Eggplant, Cranberry & Lettuce  and Pool to color the back side of the acetate (if you color the front the alcohol in the ink will remove the printed image). She then backed the colored acetate with Clear Glitter Sheets for sparkle! A bow made from Winter’s Butterfly Ribbons adds the finishing touch.

For this card, I altered Jeweled Snowflake Dazzles™ Stickers with Purple Spectrum Noir™ Pens.

While the Jeweled Snowflake Dazzles™ Stickers were still on the backing sheet I colored them with Spectrum Noir™ Purple (PL4) Pens.

Then I added a darker shade of purple (LV3) to add some contrast.

After placing the Dazzles™ Stickers on the card, I colored in some of the jewels with dark purple (LV3) and then added drops of Bottle Green and Oyster Grey Nuvo Crystal Drops for dimension.

A large purple flower from Petaloo Botanical Blooms Lavender/Purple and Winter’s Butterfly Ribbon on the top left corner finishes this card.

That’s all for today! Don’t miss our New Week Of Webisodes, August 28-September 1 and happy crafting!
