Butterfly Kisses


Another butterfly card, so beware! This time it is a valentine themed one for Practical Scrappers, CCC, TSG (I used the butterflies, pearls and ribbon), GCA, SSS (I took one of the elements out - hope that's okay), and OCC...

Inspired by, and helped along by (with this little video), the one and only Lucy Abrams.

I was thinking "butterfly kisses" if you're wondering why I have butterflies on a Valentine card. ;)

I used these fantastic DCWV Home Adornments stickers that I found (and on sale, nonetheless) - I used them in yesterdays post; everybody was trying to figure out how I made him, when he was right at the bottom of my supply list! ;) Yes, I wish I was that amazing of a stamper, truth is I'm not. I did have quite a few chuckles with all those questions when the answer was on the supply list.

The one stamping technique I did use though, was the pinkish tinge on the white cardstock. I used the Nesties as a stencil, and just sponged pink ink over it. Not hard, but it gives a nice affect...I think. ;)

I added this to the Etsy shop if you want to check it out.

Also going in to the shop (eventually!) is some of my sis' knitting; I took a few pictures today to share with you all.

Isn't he just the cutest? I'll share a little surfin' koala tomorrow, so stick around for more cuteness. ;)

Thanks for poppin' by!

P.S. Guess what? While poppin' through Lexi's Creations, I found out I had won the prize! This time it was random though; here is the "winning" post. :)
