This is another card I did at my first stamp and stack....please forgive me that this one has a layer that is a little cockeyed.....this is the one I was making as I was showing the attendees how to make this card and I was trying to hurry and I didn't realize until now that I didn't line it up straight....oops! I was standing...I usually craft sitting! Anywho....I cased this from here and she cased it from someone else but it is a really fun technique. To get this effect you brayer your ink on your embossing folder and then when you emboss your paper the raised areas stay white and the color hits all the other areas. Really cool look! I've got to get better with my photography skills so you can see closer what I'm talking about! The embossing folder I used can be purchased here and the sentiment is from the Kindness Matters stamp set which you can find here or here. Such a beautiful stamp set....love this sentiment but I can't wait to play with those butterflies, too! The butterflies I used on this card are from the embosslits which cut and emboss....gorgeous!!! You can purchase this butterfly embosslit here ....these are SOOO easy to use! With just this one die/embossing folder combo you get 5 beautiful embossed butterfly die cuts with every pass! Hope you enjoy!

This sweet card was one of the cards we made at my first (and only so far) stamp and stack last month. It was so easy and fun to make. I cased it from this talented lady here. The beautiful flower is made with the Stampin Up Mixed Bunch stamp set (here or here) and it coordinates beautifully with the blossom punch (here). That gorgeous sentiment comes from the Friendly Phrases set which you can find here for clear and here for wood. I love the fonts on these sentiments! That patterned paper is from the a celebration set....hope we get to see that again someday...gorgeous papers!

here. I couldn't wait to try it! I just got this super cute Stampin Up stamp set called Best Dad Ever in the mail and wanted to use one of the super cute ties included in it! This is a great set as it has several sentiments included such as: thinking of you, Best Dad Ever, happy birthday and happy Father's Day, too which makes it a very versatile set! You can purchase the clear mount version here or the wood mounted version here. It really is a great buy, too at only $14.95 (clear) or $18.95 (wood). I used Dusty Durango cardstock which is retired but Cajun Craze is close to the same color if you like this color scheme. The patterned paper is from the Well Worn DSP which is retiring as of May 31st or whenever it runs out whichever comes first. You can find it here .
