On a brighter note, todays card was made using a new set that is going to be in the new summer mini coming out very soon. It is called Strength and Hope. Good thing it does not have refuge as I seem to like the word refuse better LOL. See some posts back for that story.
The card base is Early Expresso, and I layered some DSP (retired Baja Breeze) on Baja Breeze card stock and place those layers on the card.
I was given these Nestability dies as a gift so I thought I would try one. I first stamped the flourish second generation ink on with Baja Breeze then sponged the outside with the die still on. I stamped the HOPE and embossed it with clear embossing powder from Stampin Up.
I stamped and embossed the butterfly with white embossing powder and cut it out. Beautiful butterfly it is. I added some colored rhinestones to its body.
I also added three pearls to finish it off. Thanks for stopping by.
Here's what I used:
Stamps: Strength and Hope, Elements of Style
Paper: Baja Breeze, Early Expresso, Whisper White
Ink: Baja Breeze, Early Expresso
Accessories: White and Clear Embossing Powder
