It's Been Fun! With Sweet Stamps
Greetings, all my crafty friends. August is fast coming to a close, which means my month of guest designing for Sweet Stamps is ending. I have enjoyed it very much! I have one final card on the Sweet Stamps blog today. This week's challenge is a birthday challenge. Everyone needs a supply of birthday cards, so make one and enter the challenge! I used several Sweet Stamps on this card, including my favorite butterflies. Here's what I made:
I used one of the Artsy Fartsy stamps (AF4), "French Calligraphy" to create the background layer on this card, my favorite "Fanciful Butterflies" set (S600), and "Fancy Birthday Stacked" (9099D) for the Sweet Stamps images. The doily is also from the Sweet Stamps store. It is a Cheery Lynn die, Eastern Star (DL230). It cuts beautifully! Designer papers are My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing Bluebell 6x6. The ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM and the stick pins are by Close To My Heart. I made the butterflies by heat embossing with clear embossing powder on Outdoor Denim card stock, then mixing various Perfect Pearls colors with water and painting it on. The embossed areas resist the paint mixture. I love the effect. The card is on a CTMH Outdoor Denim card stock base. I think this would be an enjoyable birthday card to receive, how about you?
