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.

Stamp It Up!!!
This was a difficult design to come up with but I like how it turned out. I used techniques and items that I learned and picked up at Scrapbook expo in Oaks PA a few weeks ago. I had a lot of fun with this.
I used the Butterfly Pivot Card Cutting Die on pick card stock of a standard card size. Then used the die for the blue/purple card stock to cover the inside and outside of card.
I used the butterfly dies that came with the set on cloudy velum which I used the quick quote chalks and decorated the velum. I love these inks. I am learning different ways to use them all the time. I also used a blending pen with the chalk inks to distress the cutout butterflies of the card.
I used the heartfelt flower stamps colored with spectrum nor markers for the flowers on the inside and outside of the card. Used the die cuts to cut out the flowers.
I used the Ellentina Cutting dies on the tin can to cut out the dragonflies which I colored with spectrum nor markers giving them a bright color.
The quotes and the moth are stamped with glue and glitter used to highlight the stamps. This was a technique I learned at the Scrapbook Expo from Rubber Café. I used some frames I cut out from the Cricut/Gypsy to edge the card and to highlight the quotes. I used the glitter tape from Walmart to outline the edges.
I hope everyone enjoys this card.
