I 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!!

Hi there I made this card completely by using the sketch inspiration from MFT Sketch Challenge and the color and stash inspiration from the Butterfly Challenge. I took a look at this sketch:
…And then saw that the Butterfly Challenge had the theme of G is for Glossy Accents, with the color option of Slate Blue. I stamped the butterflies (Inkadinkadoo) all over the backing paper, then cut the frame from some slate blue card stock with my Cricut. I traced where the frame would sit, then used my Prismacolors to only color the inside part…..Of course using blue shades….Including the slate. I took a strip of ivory edged with some black pinstriping, then a strip of white, which I stamped a LDRS sentiment on. Finally, I stamped and colored one more butterfly, which I covered with Glossy Accents, and added it as an accent. The joys of photography (when it’s a bit dark), don’t really show off the colors in a true way, or the shine of the Glossy Accents….unless you really zoom in a lot. I think this makes a cheerful, yet classy card for a friend!!
