A Happy Day!

I do love the Happy Day stamp set.  I almost did not buy it but so glad I did see the possibilities with that set!  I reach for it all the time!  This was a quick card... just a few banners and happy day sentiment and some bling, too!
Have a great Tuesday!

Vintage Pals Swap

This was my Pals Swap card for Convention 2013.  I really wanted to use the shop around wheel and crumb cake but did not know how brown and gold it was going to turn out.  The shop around wheel was used on crumb cake card stock with crumb cake ink (looks like a darker ink) and I stamped the scroll design in the new gold ink pad. I also love the script writing from Notable Notions! Enjoy your Monday!

Stamp sets: Notable Notions, Chalk Talk, shop around wheel
Paper: Crumb cake, soft suede, very vanilla
Ink: Crumb cake, baked brown sugar, Encore! gold ink
Chalk Talk framelits, baked brown sugar ribbon, linen thread, distressing tool.

Kissing Butterflies

You can never have too many happy butterflies! 
I used a technique called kissing.  I ran a piece of card stock through the big shot in my square lattice folder.  I then inked my butterfly (a solid image) in Primrose Petals and stamped on the embossed card stock.  I then stamped onto my white card stock.  You can see the lattice design now on my butterflies! Some images in sets have a design on them but this is a technique to have a design with a solid image.  Try it!  
Happy Sunday!

Stamp sets: Papillon Potpourri and Yippee-Skippee!
paper: Primrose Petals and whisper white card stock, Quatrefancy Specialty DSP
Ink: Primrose petals and Soft Suede
