This is one FABULOUS die (Layered Butterfly from Spellbinders) comes with 3 dies and you can use it independently or layer two or all three!

Caution--only Simon Says Stamp has it in stock. Act FAST! Two one left only! 
it's gone! πŸ˜•

The similar ones ( I know it's not the same) are still available--> here and here
you are inspiring
I used pattern paper and did some quick layering!

To compliment the background, I used Warp Speed Stencil to accentuate the focal point.

you are inspiring-001

The key is to turn the angle of the stencil to create a sense of motion for the butterfly.

The embossing paste does a quick job. Love the result.

Hope you have a lovely day.

Simon Says Stamp New Release "Good Vibes"!

Hello friends!
s

Lucky for me to have a new stamp (thanks, SSS!) called Center Cut Geometric Pattern Cling Stamp.
s
 from the new release "Good Vibes" from Simon Says Stamp.
This release has really fun and happy images and designs. 
Happy birthday (2)

 This large Center Cut Geometric Pattern Cling Stamp comes with one extra component than the norm. That is, it has a removable circle stamp in the center.

DSC_0042

I wanted to take advantage of this removable element. 
So, I embossed the outer image in white for the background and silver in the circle.  
Happy birthday-002

This was all created in one piece/layer without using a circle die. Love that.

Happy birthday-001   

Of course, MISTI makes this possible for me to create two embossing in one layer without masking or die-cutting.  To add interest and movement, I added an alcohol-inked vellum butterfly.

HB

I added some more colors in a few spots in the background with the Companion Crafter's Pen (Spring Collection).

You can find the Geometric Pattern Cling Stamp here.

Technique Tuesday Feature is Back!

Hello friends!
I hope you are having a great Tuesday! 
I took a break from featuring Technique Tuesday products on a Tuesday and guess what!?
I am back with Technique Tuesday feature again.
Technique Tuesday - Greenhouse Society Collection - Clear Acrylic Stamps - Strawberry
Technique Tuesday - Clear Acrylic Stamps - Strawberry


thanks 
This card may look simple enough, but thee are a few steps/technique involved.

1: masking the background: I used the die cut as a MASK and then stamped the background in green.  
2. white-embossing and die-cutting on vellum): using heavier vellum (40lbs) seems to do the trick for me. It doesn't warp and is sturdy enough to use as it is.
3. coloring: I applied alcohol ink/markers on front and back of the vellum (mostly on the back).
4. use colored card stock to create the matching sentiment.
5. it's all in the details: splatter, droplets and sequins....you know, the little things.

thanks (2)

I did strawberry-picking in my local farm many times before and noticed that the flowers are usually white with yellow center and that is how I colored the strawberries.
thanks #1

I love the airiness of vellum gives and it is aptly perfect for a summer card.
thanks (3)

 All supplies that I used are listed and linked below.
Please feel free to shop through my links as your support to my blog.
