I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for the talent He has bestowed on all of us!
I have been artistic all of my life and love experimenting with different mediums and techniques. This blog is my creative outlet to share my passion for cardmaking and papercrafting!
Ink the floral image from
Summer Solstice using Not Quite Navy (NQN) Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece
of retired Bella Chateau Designer Series Paper (Marina Mist swirl). Color the area around the flowers with a NQN Stampin’
Write marker and a Daffodil Delight marker for the centers. Mount onto Whisper White and again onto NQN
cardstock, add the ½” Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon with the button (I
added a few strips of NQN cardstock as faux stitching).
Using a brayer, lightly
apply Marina Mist Classic Ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Stamp over the brayered cardstock using the
Netting Background Stamp with NQN Classic Ink.
Mount this image onto NQN cardstock and again onto the Whisper White
Create the banner using NQN
Designer Series Paper (DSP) and add a NQN cardstock layer and mount again onto
Whisper White. Use the 1 3/8” Square
Punch to create the banner points on all of the layers.
Cut around the edge of a
Tea Lace Paper Doily and use Sticky Strip behind the banner to layer the Paper
Doily edge. Mount the banner strip to
the card per the sketch layout.
Stamp the butterflies from
Summer Solstice using NQN Classic Ink and use the Bitty Butterfly Punch to
punch out the butterflies. Stamp the
sentiment from Elements of Style, carefully cut around the image and mount
using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. Add the
Pearls to the butterflies to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Summer
Solstice, Netting Background, Elements of Style

Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Tea Lace Paper Doily, 1 3/8” Square Punch
