Today I am excited to share two cards I created for D2BA Blog Hop using the brand new Playful Posies stamp set. This first one uses the layering stamps in this set to create the background paper used in this card. I added the sentiment from the Love Stackable stamp set.

For my second card I stamped and then embossed  just the flower outline and then colored the background with Gelatos.  I added the sentiment using D2BA Congrats die. 

Your next stop in the hop is Kendra'sblog!

Make a Wish Butterfly Card

Today I am excited to share this cute card I created with my Sin City Stamps! I was trying to re-create a garden against a brick wall and fence.  I love the mix of the "industrial" look with the elegance of a butterfly!

Supplies: Sin City Stamps Butterfly Silhouette with Text  Sin City Stamps Dandelion Wishes  Embossing Ink Ink Embossing Powder Card stock - white, maroon Scallop Circle Punch Fencing Sticker Brick Wall Stencil Gel Press Plate Paint - Red, Brown

 Step 1: Spread Red Paint over Gel Press Plate.
Step 2 : Using a brayer,  pull up most of red paint, leaving some around edges.
Step 3: Spread brown paint over the Gel Pate (on top of red paint).  Lay brick stencil over painted plate. 
Step 4: Lay a piece of scrap paper over the plate and press down.  This removes ink in the stencil area. Gently remove stencil and the remaining paint will be what you use.
Step 5: Lay your white card stock onto gel press and remove.  Let dry.  Your press image should look something like this. 
Step 6:  Stamp Dandelions from Sin City Stamps Dandelion Wishes  onto brick wall. 
Step 7: Add Fence Sticker. 
Step 8: Stamp Greeting from Sin City Stamps Dandelion Wishes onto punch scalloped circle with embossing ink and emboss with White embossing powder. 
Step 9: Add Greeting to card.
 Step 10: Stamp butterfly from Sin City Stamps Butterfly Silhouette with Text .  Fussy cut butterfly and add to card.
