Sending Lot of Love

This card is for Essentials by Ellen February Pin-Sights Challenge. Love the pastel theme on the picture and decided to make this card for the challenge.

I used Home & Hearth by Julie dies, as well as distress ink and blending tools for the houses, trees and hearts.  Avery Elle, dotted borders for the hill side.  I also used glass beads from Faber-castell to add sparkles to the die cuts.  I don't have any sentiment that goes with the scene, so I wrote them myself instead!

Capture the Moments

I used the extra butterfly I made from the Just For You card for this card.  The monochromatic theme is inspired by Therese Calvary's Altenew monochromatic bird.  There are some bad double stamping but I think it is okay as there is always some out of focus shots in real life ;p

I used distress ink for the butterfly, same technique as in the Just For You card, but doodled a lot on this butterfly.  Both the sentiment and the film strip are from Impression Obsession.  The flowers are from Stampendous, Recollections, and Inkadodoo stamp sets.  The butterfly is from Clearly Besotted.  The background is done using Sizzix Tim Holtz embossing folder.

Just For You Card

The technique I used on the colourful butterfly is from Francine Vuilleme's 1001 Cartes On Air - Shine.  I wanted to try it out after watching her video on YouTube for a while.  It was fun and satisfying.  I love colours and this technique let me use as many bright colours as I want on an object.  Really love it!

I used distress ink  for the butterfly.  Sizzix Tim Holtz embossing folding on a pearlescent cardstock for the square background.  The butterflies and the flowers are from Clearly Besotted and Inky Antics stamp sets.  The sentiment is from Kellycraft.  I also used uni-posca (yellow) and glass beads from faber-castell to decorate the butterfly a bit!

Peacock Feather Inspired Shaker Card!

Always like the gorgeous vibrant colours of peacock feather!  This shaker card is my first attempt to use its vibrant colour combination on a card.  I did toned the colours down so that it is not as deep as the actual colour.  This way the card looks bright but relax!

I used Simon Says Stamp dies, Tim Holtz's distress ink and blending tool for the "flower".   Sizzix Tim Holtz  embossing folder for the white background, an aqua colour card stock from recollection stamped with Hero Art's repositionable rubber background using memento ink.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted's Everything Change stamp set!
