Stamping galore!

Hey everyone

I'm back today with two cards made with one single stamp set :) and yes, about butterflies. Who doesn't love em eh?! ;)

Since starting my blog, I've discovered that there are oodles of techniques and creative ideas that I have in my head, but never used! I am so glad that I've begun my blog to showcase my crafty journey :)

Here are my cards..

Surprised? Don't be! They're both made from one stamp set! It's butterfly wishes from fiskars. 

On the first card I decided to not use a sentiment and keep it all about the stamp. 

I stamped, embossed and fussy cut the image. The little brown Vine on the side is also made by stamping the leaf flourish with rich cocoa memento. 

A closer look 

I used rainbow sparkle embossing powder on the butterflies.. Here's a close up 

For the second card I thought about keeping it simple, yet entirely different. 

As you can see in the stamp image above, the butterfly originally had a little flourish below it. Being a clear stamp, I just cut it :) personally I thought it was looking very OTT.. 

Stamped, embossed the image on Kraft CS and used the sentiment on a little self-made tag :) I used the corner punch from the MS punch-around-the-page set and rounded the sides. 
Loved the little toffee look it gave! Used some buttons and a mellow-yellow ribbon to finish it off :)

Hope you liked them! :)
