Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Well I can't begin to tell you how excited I am!  My new crafting toy has arrived which my lovely husband Rick bought me last week!  Yessssssss my Cricut Explore arrived this afternoon and I have been getting it all set up to play.


Tonight's card is what I made using Sheena Douglass' A little bit Sketchy True Colours Stamps for the One Word Wonder "Butterfly/Butterflies".  I made this, this morning as I had to have something to do to contain my excitement!

Recipe

1. A5 white landscape base card
2. Purple card is matted and layered onto the base of the card.
3. I embossed Neenah card with one of Sheena's Oriental embossing folder, I then distressed with DI Shaded Lilac and painted over with Silks Acrylic Glaze Ice.
4. I stamped the butterfly onto Neenah Card with Versamark and embossed with WOW Silver Embossing Powder then coloured with Silks French Lilac and Twinkling H2o's Plum Crazy. I cut this out and layered onto the embossed card.
5. I then stamped the butterfly onto Acetate with Versamark and embossed with WOW Embossing Powder and cut out then adhered to the other butterfly, this adds dimension.
6. Onto Neenah card I stamped the sentiment then cut out with Spellbinder Labels die.
7. To finish off I distressed white roses with DI Shaded Lilac and adhered to the corner.


Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
