If you know me, you know I love butterflies in all sizes and colors. Do you know my favorite butterfly?
I love the new Butterfly Thinlits and I've been using this particular one of the bunch a lot lately. It's so delicate and pretty.
I took a piece of whisper white cs and sponged multiple colors on it and then stamped VersaMark all over it and then dumped clear embossing powder on it and heat set. I love the multi-color. All of my club members made this at club in February and everyone of the cards look different. They were all beautiful.
This is such a clean and simple card to make but the impact is wow to me. Inspired by a card my friend Kathy made, I changed the DSP to Painted Blooms and used the Blackberry Bliss coordinated cardstock. I love the simplicity of it. Who wouldn't want to receive this thank you card? Stamp set is from the SAB catalog - Simply Wonderful.
Every year around my birthday, I go to see the Cherry Blossoms in Washington, D.C. I never get tired of walking around the Tidal Basin with the delicate blooms floating in the air from the morning breeze. It's always picture perfect, no matter the weather. Well, it is for me anyway...I always take a ton of pictures. I love to walk around the memorials and look up at the Washington Monument. I think it's the most beautiful city and I feel blessed to live a short drive away or a short subway ride away. I'm thinking that peak may be a bit later this year with the snow and cold temperatures continuing. Even so, I can hardly wait.
The Easter set in the Occasions catalog, Indescribable Gift, reminds me of Cherry Blossoms. That prompted me to create a card with a Cherry Blossom tree in the background from the Sheltering Tree stamp set and then a close-up branch from Indescribable Gift. It will also teach my class masking, which will be a new technique for them. I'm pretty happy with the results. What do you think?
