I am married with 2 children. I served almost 10yrs in the United States Air Force and supported my husband for another 10yrs until he retired. We live in a small town. I love to do all kinds of crafts but my favorite is scrapbooking. I developed this blog to share my creations with others, to help them and learn new things.

Ink It Up
Here is what I came up with for this month's Quick Quote Contest. I made a card for my mother-in-law to thank her for helping me alter my daughter's dance costumes.
I used an Sizzix emboss folder and embossed the card and used a Q-tip with green with envy powder puff ink to color in the raised areas. I used red hot and Bloody Mary powder puff ink for the flowers and yellow with highlight of biscotti for flower stem. I used a butterfly stencil with multiple powder puff inks using a small narrow piece of rubber to put the ink in the stencil. I used a sizzix framelit for the shape of thank you with distressing it with Blue Hawaiian. I distressed the butterfly with coal mine powder puff. Raised butterfly with raised glue dots to make it look like it is flying. I added a Queen & company bling to the thank you to help it stand out. The thank you is a stamp I had in my collection from stampin' up which was embossed with glitter in black ink.
I am really impressed with how this card turned out. This was a fun project to do because I love quick quotes powder puff inks as you saw in the project I turned in last month that used them as well.
