Papertrey - Butterflies and Leaves!

Papertrey Ink is celebrating their 5th Anniversary and, besides gaving some great releases, they have their usual terrific challenges! Well, this one co-ordinates with the release of a new set of butterflies and leaf stamps!  I really could use some fantastic new stamps!  And BUTTERFLIES take top priority on many of my cards!


I love the way the butterflies look as though they are floating across the card!
And I would love to have some new leaf stamps and dies!



The adorable little cloud cut-outs are the cloud dies from Papertrey, as is the sentiment.

Thanks for looking ! 



Flourish Timeless Tuesday challenge!

This week the challenge at Flourishes was to use an image with, or having to do with,
BIRDS!
Just the reason I needed to pull out my
Flourishes "Snow Wonderful" stamp set and matching
Classic Keyhole Spellbinder Die!


This image is so pretty with the glitter and embossing powders to highlight the adorable little birds and pine needles!


Aren't they just too sweet!

Supplies:
Paper; Prima, Madeline Mat Stack
Stamp; Flourishes, "Snow Wonderful"
Die; Spellbinders, Classic Keyhole and Picot Edge Circles
Embossing glitters; Stampendous
Ribbon
Flower; Prima
Scallop Scissors; Fiskars

Entered into the monthly challenge at Stampendous (Texture! I used 3 different Frantage embossing glitters and powders!)

Cat's Pajama's Valentine Blog Hop!

Join the fun as you go from blog to blog at "Dancing in Pajamas" to see all the cute, funny, and romantic Valentine's cards!  There will be adorable images and great ideas and techniques contributed!

So, here's my little card!  I love the little Cat's PJ's penquins and thought this image would be so cute altered to be for my little Valentine, rather than a birthday!

I used the old classic technique of accordian folding and cutting my little row of hearts! I used to love making dolls, hearts, and about any other shape imaginable back in grade school! (many, many, many years ago!)

I think it's hilarious that you can find these little guys getting into just about every situation and every holiday party you can think of!  This stamp is probably used more for birthdays, but I chose to add the heart candle and make it for a Valentine's Day party!  Nothing says "I love you" better than a trio of happy, silly penquins!

Also, I used the Shabby Pink Chunky Embossing Powder from Stampendous! I love this stuff for all sorts of applications! You'll be seeing a lot of it on my projects from here on out! It comes in many colors! No, I don't work for Stampendous, just love their glitters, powders, and crushed glasses!

Now, get outta here and enjoy the rest of the Hop!
