Happy Monday! It’s time for another Cards in Envy challenge . This week our theme is “Wings.” This can be anything with wings such as butterflies, dragonflies, birds, angels, etc.
As a reminder, Cards in Envy asks that your card fit into a standard A2 envelope for ease of mailing, but that doesn’t mean they have to be one layer or clean and simple.
For today’s card I used a fun technique from a tutorial CD called “Bodacious Backgrounds” by Technique Junkies called, 180 degree stamping. The stamp is also by Technique Junkies called, Vintage Butterfly Collection,” with a great sentiment called, “Forever and a Day” which I heat embossed with silver powder.
Hope you like it and enter a card with us at Cards in Envy! Where will your wings take you today???
Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop. We have a “Use Your Stash” Theme this month. Our FTHS designers are showcasing lots of gorgeous projects.
As you hop along, please leave a comment on each blog. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from the FTHS store. And one lucky commentator on the FTHS blog has the chance to win a $ 15 voucher.
Here is my project, using Hang Loose, perfect for a summer card. I broke out some oldies but goodies from my stash including a spellbinders “Spritely Sprockets Die, some Amy Tangerine paper from 2012 called, “Sketchbook”, Liquitex inks, Distress Inks, Art Anthology Dimensional Paint, and of course, my favorite Copic Markers. This was a super fun challenge to use stash that you haven’t touched in a while. Do some shopping in your own craft room to see what you can find!
Now head over to Kelly Schelske and see what she has created.
Thanks for hopping with us today. The hop will end on Sunday Aug 7th at 6 am EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday Aug 10th.”
