Butterfly Hugs

Butterfly Hugs

Butterfly HugsI was cleaning in my craft room the other day, and just realized the sheer magnitude of all the stuff that I – a. Never use   b. Forgot I had  c. Am saving for the right project

I’m going to attempt to use some of it…Bit by bit :) I’m not sure if I ever used these Kaiser Craft stamps before, but they are beautiful!! I stamped and embossed them, then cut them out with a Nelly Snellen circle die.  I got a HUGE pack of black and white paper a few years ago…Many coordinating prints that I’ve turned to once in a while, but not as often as the package size warrants!  I cut a few circles out of a few of the patterns, then stamped and embossed a small LDRS sentiment on another plain circle.  After gluing them down on the background paper, I saw that some definition was needed!  As it was too late to mat them, I used 2 different size dies to make frames for each circle :) This was all the card needed.  As CAS as I get!!

Zebras

Zebras

ZebrasI had the idea for this card the other day, and was really excited to get to it, because it was back to some of my old rubber stamping techniques.  I used an old rubber-stamp of a zebra, I don’t know the brand name, but I got it at Michael’s as part of a set of animals.  I used masking to make a row of them to run across the strip of white card stock.  The sentiment stamp is also an oldie…..it’s by Stampology.  I used a Nellie Snellen circle die to cut it out and to mat it in the turquoise.  I’ve had the animal print Cuttlebug embossing folders for a long time, but haven’t used the zebra (or tiger???) one yet.  It was perfect to use with CoreD’inations Black Magic paper :)  After sanding the embossing to expose the white, I matted everything with turquoise and added a few small brads to the corner.  Loving the CAS design of this card :)
