Today’s card was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest made by Shelly Wadge. She had heat embossed the Crackled Paint Stamp using White Embossing Powder. She had added a sentiment and one of these butterflies, and kept everything to black and white. It looked really lovely, and I wondered what a splash of red would look like! As I worked on my card, it looked less and less like Shelley’s card! LOL! After I had heat embossed the Crackled Paint, I also heat embossed Happy Birthday from the Piece of Cake Stamp Set. I was considering painting part of the butterflies with some Real Red Ink, but decided against it…………………fortunately!
I added a very slim layer of Real Red under the sentiment because I didn’t want the strip the butterflies were on to be the only Real Red. To decorate the inside of the card, I added a layer of Whisper White Cardstock. I found a small black and white butterfly in my packet, which I painted in Real Red. I very pleased with how this card has turned out. As I’ve been sitting here writing today’s blog, I’ve remembered a Christmas card I received which gave me a great idea for a card. Sorry to tease but I’ll save that, hopefully for Monday morning.
Here’s a nice ittle story for you! Do you remember two day’s ago I shared two Thank You cards I’d made for a customer who always buys all her cards from me. I’d said the white card with the Smokey Slate Doily had been inspired by a card made two years ago by a demo called Kate Morgan. Kate saw my card and my shout out to her! She appreciated being acknowledged as my inspiration. She said her blog for Monday has already been scheduled and features a take on one of my cards! How cool is that! This is how the Stampin’ Up! family works at its best!
That’s it from me today. I hope you have a great weekend, and until tomorrow, happy crafting.
