How elegant is this die?
I paired it up with gold foil card stock and die cut colored flowers and leaves ( my DIY watercolor paper).

For the background, I stamped two layer of Stone Mosaic in Enchanted Gold Pigment Ink and SunRay.

I love soft pastel colors with a touch of gold... and that's how I came up with the color palette.

If you are a butterfly lover, this Mix & Match Mariposa Die Set should have a prominent spot in your craft room.

 I actually created my own color paper with Altenew Ink Sprays. You can definitely use pattern or color card stock. Whether you layer the butterflies or not, they are all beautiful.


As you can see, I love Stone Mosaic so much that I used it again.  I paired it up with Warp Speed Stencil to create a sense of motion.

I believe this elevated the design and made the butterflies come to life!

 4. feature products: Breezy Bouquet Stamp & Die Bundle
Altenew-BreezyBouquetStamp&DieBundle-Virginia#2
This stamp set has the FINEST lines! I love the delicate look in all of the bouquets!

I did ink-blending with the flowers and die cut them with the coordinating die.

For the blue paper bag, I created a mask and also ink-blended it in blue.

The die set comes with the smallest tag die! This die really make this card a stand-out. I added some small strings and adhered to the bundle. How neat is that!
