You Make my Heart Flutter

Hi! I hope everyone had an awesome Valentine’s Day. Mine was spent in a very cold house with no electricity because of a snow storm that came through the day before. I have determined that I would have never made it as a pioneer because I don’t do roughing it very well. I was so happy that it finally came back on Saturday…three days is way too long!!! The hubby and I wound up going out to eat on Saturday and to see Steep Canyon Rangers perform for our Valentine’s Day presents to each other.
Well, this is the card I created for the February Valentine’s Day challenge over at the Crafty Card Gallery blog.  The card is made out of a 3.5″x6.75″ mini paperbag. I folded the top half of the bag underneath the bottom “flap” and then I cut slightly smaller than the bag scrapbook paper to cover all surfaces.
Next I use the Sizzix Bigz Beautiful Butterflies and the Hearts and Brackets dies to cut out two butterflies and a small hearts. Also I used two dress pins for the butterflies antenna. 

You can add candy, gift card or some other fun treat to the little bag card.

The sentiment I used the computer to print it off.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!


Thinking of You Butterfly

Hi everyone! I’m back to share a quick card I created for a customer and I’m also submitting it for a “What’s Bugging You” challenge over at Cut it Up! blog. The base of the card and the butterfly I used some sheets out of the Artist Paper 6×6 Paper pad from Paper House. I soooo love the design, quotes and how colorful the scrapbook paper is in this pack. I used bits and pieces of scrapbook paper, inked the edges with Martha Stewart Dusk Blue Chalk Ink.

I applied Ceramcoat Turquoise acrylic paint around the end of a toilet paper and Anita’s White acrylic paint around the inside of a bottle cap to make random circles to the front of the card.

The sentiment I printed from the computer and glued to the top of the card. Next I used Sizzix Bigz Beautiful Butterflies diecut to cut two butterflies out. I adhered the center of the smaller butterfly on top of the larger butterfly. I then adhered to the card front.

I used a scrap of ribbon for the body, three sequins and  sewing push pins for the antennas and adhered to the butterfly. 

Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!
