Hello. Thank you for visiting my Blog. I started making hand made cards in January 2018 and now I create cards almost every day. I love making cards to give away to other people. When I discovered card making it lit a spark within me that drives me to always learn new things and make new cards every chance I get.I live in Western Pennsylvania with my husband and my son and our dog Karley, who is a mix between a yellow lab and a pit bull.

Vibrant Butterfly Flourish Backgrounds
Hello, Tracy Shultz, The Hopeful Crafter, here to share several cards that I created with a stamp from the July 2021 Technique Junkies new release. I used the Butterfly Flourish Collage stamp from the July 2021 release to make these cards. I also used the Dream, Hope, Wish Wonder, set of four sentiment stamps in the card below. There is a coupon code for 10% off your order.
I created a YouTube video explaining how to create these vibrant backgrounds:
This video provides several additional examples of cards. I created 11 cards in total.
My rainbow colored backgrounds were ink blended using Catherine Pooler inks and domed foam blender tools. The other backgrounds were created with by ink smooshing with re-inkers from Catherine Pooler. The celebrate dies were from my stash. I sprayed Dazzle Shimmering Bliss Spray from Technique Junkies on the backgrounds to create an iridescent shine on top of the ink.
My final two cards for this blog post use sentiment stamps that were previously released. The sentiment on the card on the left is called "Always Hope" https://techniquejunkies.com/always-hope/ and the sentiment on the right is from the Love, Faith and Peace Set of 12. This sentiment says "Hope makes our lives a little brighter" I used watercolor paper, Catherin Pooler re-inkers and plastic wrap to create these Ombre yellow and orange backgrounds.
