Nature is the Art of God

Today I thought I would share one of the cards that I made as a finalist for the DRS design team. For this card I used stamps E962 and M385. I sponged the edges of all layers of cardstock with matching ink and used foam dimensionals to pop up the central layer. To finish off the project I added 3 lines of coordinating ribbon.

I hope you are all enjoying your week! Thanks for stopping by!

Monday already?

I know I use this same blog title on a lot of Mondays but man, the weekends sure seem to go by a lot faster than 2 weekdays. I didn't get much stamping done this weekend at all. Actually none. I did though do a little shopping and bought a new stamp set so that I can get working on Annabelle's birthday invitations. She is turning 5 in September and we decided to let her have her first ever birthday party. Talk about stress! So anyway, I'm hoping to get these invitations done today or tomorrow so I will have some fresh new projects to show.
For today I thought I would share a card I made a couple weeks ago. For this card I actually cased one of my own cards that I made a couple months ago, you can see it HERE.
This card uses a set from Firecracker Designs by Pamela called Sympathy. If you've read my blog before you've probably figured out by now that I love butterfly stamps and well, this stamp is one of my favorites! There are so many possibilities with this. For this card I stamped the image on white cardstock and colored it and then I stamped the butterfly on acetate and cut out only the front wing and body. I glittered the back of the wing and glued the body to the cardstock. This gave it a 3-D look.

Supplies used: Stampin Up Summer Sun and Lovely Lilac CS, TAC shimmery CS, Basic Grey DP, rectangle Nestibilities, Sympathy stamp set from Firecracker Designs, Art Institue glitter, Trancparency sheet, Prismacolor and SU markers, Stamp-a-ma-jig, misc ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you all have a wonderful start to your week!!
