It is never really a good time when you have to make a sympathy card. We found out our neighbour lost her mother a few days ago so I wanted to make her a card. I seem to pull out the Butterfly Corner embossing folder a lot for my sympathy cards. I love the detail on it and of course I love the butterflies. I bought mine at my local craft store you can find it online at Darice amongst other places . It was one of the first cards I made when I got into card making.  Here is my original card if you want to take a look :) I have made many other cards using this embossing folder it is so versatile here is another example. You can pretty much do anything you want with it. 

I used two different Unity stamps in this  card the sentiment is from the Sympathy and Sadness stamp you can find it at Unity Stamp Company website here. The butterflies are from the A Friend Loveth stamp set you can find that here.  I embossed some lilac card with the folder then mounted it onto a white cardstock base. I stamped the butterflies onto vellum using Versamark ink then added white embossing powder and set with my heat gun. I cut them out added some white pearls and used a fabric glue that dies in clear to stick them onto the card. I used the same white embossing powder on the sentiment to make it stand out.

  Hope you like my card thanks for stopping by :)

I am entering this card into the CAS-ual Friday's card challenge

Friends with Flair @ Unity

Here is my Unity Friends with Flair entry.  I used my Feel the Joy stamp and used the generation stamping technique with memento ink. I then sponged the background in purple and deep pink pigment ink.  I mounted it on to white card and added the Happy Birthday sentiment at the bottom. It looked too plain so I added teeny weeny little butterflies from the butterfly punch from Martha Stewart.  P.S I ran out of daubers and all I could find was a magic eraser it did the trick as a makeshift sponge :)                                        If you want to take part hop along to Unity and enter  here I just had to make another card I just love this stamp I wish I had gotten it sooner it is so versatile. I think it may be my new favourite Unity Stamp :)                                                                           Thanks for visiting :)

Love You - Hot Pink

Happy Friday Friends :) I hope you all had a good week. Here is the card I made for this weeks friends with flair today.  I used two stamps on this card. The hearts are from the  You are my Main Squeeze stamp set. The sentiment is from the Strength & Dignity KOM 11/13 .  The vibrant pink colour is Picked Raspberry distress ink that I sponged all over the card. I embossed the hearts with white embossing powder. I really like he effect it created it looks almost like chalk.  Have a great weekend :)

Craft Stamper May Challenge

Hello Friends! I hope everyone is doing ok during this crazy time.  I just wanted to remind you that we are still running the Craft Stamper Challenges.  The May challenge is well underway but you still have time to come and join in.  Here is my card I made for this month's project.  I made this clean and simple floral card with Unity stamps.  I used two different kits to create this card. The jar with the flowers is from the  Strength & Wisdom  stamp set and the sentiment is from the kit called  His Words .  I kept my card really clean and just used my watercolors to colour the flowers and jar then tied a little twine around it to finish it off. If you have the time come and play along with us this month.  You can use any stamps you wish on your project.  Here is the prize we have on offer this month this fab Eileen Hull die.  All of the details of the challenge can be found on the  Craft Stamper Blog . Hope to see your project
