Creative With Stamps Challenge #1: Butterfly Smile Card

Friday, April 01, 2016

Hello, Creative Friends!!!

Today is the first Challenge over at Creative With Stamps Challenge Blog!!! And we have prizes for you!!! 
But before we get to that...let's check out the challenge:

Interpret the theme as you like...use butterfly stamps, make shaped cards, long as you make cards and use stamping (digis allowed) on your projects, you're good to go!!!

Here's my card:


I used a butterfly stamp for the background...I inked the stamp and stamped the image on a scrap piece of paper. Then, without re-inking, I stamped on my card (generational stamping technique) 3 times - bottom to top. I pierced the panel with my piercing tool, adhered it on green cardstock, then on the card base. I stamped the text butterfly and cut it out. I outlined the wings with a silver gel pen and added some glitter. I just adhered it on with glue, but you could use some foam tape for more dimension. Finally, I stamped the sentiment and added sequins.
(Stamps & Glitter: CTMH; Inks: Memento)
