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.

Spellbinders Guest Creator - New Start Stamp set
Hello! Today I am sharing a card that I made with the "New Start" stamp set from @teamspellbinders Spellbinders. I was asked in October by Yana Smakula if Spellbinders could send me some products to feature on my social media. It was such an honor to be asked, and of course I said yes! Spellbinders sent me two stamps sets. Today I feature the beautiful "New Start" Stamp Set:https://shrsl.com/3arnd
I created a video on my YouTube channel that you can watch for more details:
I first created a background panel by stamping a piece of pearlescent card stock with the small butterfly stamp in three colors of Versafine Clair Ink: Charming Pink, Warm Breeze and Fantasia. I set that aside to dry.
Next I stamped the butterflies using Momento Tuxedo Black Ink. I used Hammermill Premium Color Copy Cover Paper. I used copic markers to color the butterlies. I colored some of them with purple and auqa/teal markers and others I colored with orange and yellow markers.
I also stamped and embossed on vellum. To do this, I stamped using Versamark Ink and I embossed with Black Embossing powder. Then I colored with Copic Markers (always color on the back of the vellum). I used my Scan N Cut to cut out the paper butterflies and I fussy cut the vellum butterflies.
I then used the Fluted Classic Ovals dies from Spellbinders to finish my card:
