Sunday's Bits & Pieces #19


Hope your weekend is going good! I wish tomorrow wasn;t Monday!! :)  Today i have a card made from paper scraps.... not earth shattering i know, but at least another idea for using up paper scraps!! In addition to this card i made another to enter into Paper Crafts Gallery Idol!

The first thing i did was punch a whole bunch of butterflies from green, purple and blue paper. Next i die cut some Kraft and stamped the sentiment in black ink.

Then i arranged the butterflies to my liking and the adhered them. Last i added the die cut shape with pop up dots.

For the next card i inked up the background stamp with distress inks and gave it a couple spritz's with pearlized water. Next i stamped 'You' and the sentiment 'need to remember never, ever give up.'

Last i pierced to holes at the bottom of the stamped image and threaded twine and tied a bow.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!!

  1. Dana these are gorgeous! absolutely stunning creations. the flow of butterflies from behind the sentiment panel is genius. and, the watery effect of the second is flawless. perfect use of white space.

  2. I love the colours you used for the butterflies! And kraft, I have got to get some more kraft paper. It's going to become an addiction!
    I also love the sentiment on the second card - so perfect, for so many things.
