For Today’s card I stamped and heat embossed in gold the butterfly from Unity Stamps: Kit of the Month June 2014 In Love With Love
For the background I colored with Tim Holtz Distress Inks mixed with water. After totally dry I stamped with Penny Black stamp sets: Sprigs and Nature’s Friends for the greenery on the top & bottom. I used my Misti stamping tool (I love it)

I used Bird Talk by Tim Holtz set 56121B. I love the included dies! She was colored with Copics. For the card base I used Sizzix Movers & Spapers L Die – Card, Decorative Flip-its Item #658839
The background for the bird was done on Watercolor paper. I used a scrap that I had painted with pink & blue watercolors (cheap) Then I applied Turquoise & Purple Brusho Crystal Colors.
ModSquadChallenge: For the Birds
I used Lemon and Brilliant Red powdered pigments by Brusho Crystal Colors to color watercolor paper. When completely dry I stamped the Mondo Hydrangea with Versamark and heat embossed with white EP then cut it out with the Mondo Hydrangea die by Ellen Hutson. I love my new Lawn Fawn, Square Cross Stitched Stackables Dies.

First I colored watercolor papers with several different color combinations of Color Burst by Ken Oliver Then I stamped with Designs By Ryn – Flying Hummingbird 3 & Sideways Hibiscus. (and heat embossed with black EP which looks shiny/glittery) I fussy cut out images and adhered to the background.
The background paper is a kraft clear resist design from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Resist Motif stack I sponged Tim Holtz Distress Inks and then wiped gently to remove any ink from the clear resist design. I love how the kraft shows through and actually glimmers with a glittery effect when the light catches it.
For the sentiment I applied Versamark Ink to the raised portions of the embossing Thank You die from Spellbinders Sentiments 6 and ran through my Big Kick then I heat embossed with gold EP.

For my Rose I stamped with 3 different pink/red tones with Taylored Expressions Cling Stamps, Simply Stamped -Roses
Then I stamped the leaves with 2 green inks and cut them all out with Taylored Expressions Die, Simply Stamped – Roses.
I’m not sure the maker of the sentiment stamp, but I really love the quote!
The background is from Michaels Recollections stack called Craft Foil Paper, (this stack may be discontinued).

SimonSaysStamp: Work It Wednesday – Wafer thin Dies or Stensils
The first two stamps are from Unity Stamp Co. called Beautiful Inside and Out. On watercolor paper I stamped the sunburst (which is supposed to be a burst of fireworks) with Versamark and heat embossed with silver EP & then off set & re-stamped and heat embossed with white EP. Then I stamped the swirl and heat embossed with Red glitter EP.
The star is from Unity’s SMAK 3/14 called Just Plain Happy. I heat embossed it with white EP and then covered the inside with Versamark Pen and heat embossed with the Red Glitter EP. For the background I colored with Color Burst Liquid Metals, Metalic Sky. While it was still wet I added Ultramarine Blue Color Burst by Ken Oliver.

Happy Independence Day (eve). I pray that as a nation we will turn our hearts to God and once again truly become a God fearing and God loving nation!
For today’s card I used dies from Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Journaling and
from Technique Tuesday’s Cool Tab Card for the stars and sentiment. As you can see in the closeup on the right, the stars are lined with a glitter paper and the red base is from the DCWV Shimmers Stack. For the North America map, I masked off the world map and heat embossed with white EP, with a stamp from Unity Stamp Co. called Love Brings you Home.

For today’s background I am using a freebie from Winnie & Walter, LLC, at www.winniewalter.com. It is from The Gossip Column: The Geometric Generation Digital Elements, called Diamond Dizzy.
After printing several of the designs I took them to a print shop and had them printed with a Lazer printer on my 110 lb. Card stock from Walmart. Then I put it through my heat laminator with gold foil. (It is hard to tell, but the black lines in the photo are foiled gold.) See detail shot on the right. Then I heat embossed the sentiment from Mondo Hydrangea from Essentials by Ellen with black EP on Peach colored Vellum.
The Butterflies are Flying Beauties from Spellbinders. I scanned the actual dies and printed a page of various dies and did the same procedure as above. Then I die cut the foiled butterflies out and inked the inside with Distress Inks by Tim Holtz called Abandoned Coral and Candied Apple (for shading on the small ones).
