Victorine Originals Challenge #9 - Wings

Hello & Happy Friday Everyone!
Today... starts another FUN Challenge over at: 

 YAY! I know how you
guys enjoy a good Challenge!

Our Challenge is - On Wings - 

 You can follow the Theme or Use the inspiration photo
or Use the color combo or use all 3!!! You don't have to use
a stamp from Victorine Originals if you don't have one!
There is ALWAYS a random winner so come join us!

All the rules for this fun challenge are RIGHT HERE!

Here's what I created to inspire you --

I decided to just go with the THEME for this Challenge -
I'm using the Beautiful Butterfly Clear Photopolymer Set
This Butterfly stamp set, is another fabulous set that I just adore from

I chose to do some stenciling on my card - This is something
I don't do often enough.... 😊The Geometric Pattern Stencil
is from Gina Marie Designs 
I used Distress Oxide inks on my card in Abandoned Coral,
Picked Raspberry, Fossilized Amber, & Iced Spruce - 

I wanted my Butterflies to POP so I stamped them with
some Versafine Black Onyx ink then added some 
WOW Primary Ebony Black embossing powder... Then
heat set them - I think they look wonderful  - I added some
dimensionals to pop the butterflies up on my card and
added some Fun Foam to the card backing - The stitched
Rectangle & Banner Dies are from My Favorite Things.
Before I completed my Card I made sure to add some
Sparkle Shimmer Spritz and added some Clear
Adhesive gems....

I hope you guys can join us over at Victorine Originals Blog
 I would LOVE to see what you create!

Happy Birthday to You!!!

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
Today's my day to take over the blog at:
YAY for me... πŸ™Œ

I'm so excited to share this Sweet colorful
Birthday card!

I really like the Birthday Word Print Stamp -
It's not a full background stamp - it's about 3 3/4 x 4 3/4
I pulled out a piece of water color paper & Heat embossed
the stamp with some White Embossing powder then
 I pulled out some Distress Oxide inks in
Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, & Fossilized Amber
to color over my embossing - It totally makes the words POP!
I added some of my Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Spray and
dabbed it with a cloth -  I let it dry then used a Stitched
Rectangle die to cut it out -

Then, I wanted to add that ADORABLE
Wonky Four Layer Cake Stamp! I embossed it as well -
Using some Purple, Pink, & yellow embossing powder I
had in my stash - I don't own a ton of embossing powders
especially in colors, so I'm a little disappointed that I didn't
have a bright purple or pink... I think it would have stood out a
bit more if I had... None the less - I used what I have! 😊
After it was embossed, I cut it out with my Brother Scan N Cut

I used some Bright dotted paper from Doodlebug Designs and
cut it out with a Scalloped Stitched Die from Gina Marie Designs
I think it looks wonderful on that White Cardstock - I also
used some Fun Foam to pop up the Scallop frame & added some
Dimensionals to the cake - 

I'll be giving this card to one of the Teachers at School --
Everyone is happy to be back at work and back on a 
schedule! :)

Lots of Encouragement....

Hello & Happy Wednesday Everyone!
My Local Card Swap meets up tonight
and I thought I would share the cards
I made for August! The Theme this month
was Fall or Cancer Awareness
There was a Sketch, but I chose NOT to use it! πŸ˜ƒ

I went with Breast Cancer Awareness -
I don't think we make many of these types of cards
and I'm sure there is someone you know who may be
affected by this disease, and that's why I picked it!
They need to know someone is in their corner 
and thinking of them along the way! πŸ’–

So... here is my card!

I'm using the Beautiful Paper Collection by Simple Stories Called
(HOPE) -  The Sentiment is from Jaded Blossom called (Encouragement)
The Stitched Rectangle Card Mat Die is from My Favorite Things

Cardstock is Recollections 110 lb. Gray, Bazzill, Georgia Pacific, SU
The Border punch is from Fiskars called Apron Lace
I used some Clear Adhesive Gems from Stampin' Up

Other Products Used --

Misti Tool, Silhouette Program, Cameo, Printer, Clear Acrylic Sealer
Dimesionals, ATG
