Butterflies, Butterflies, Butterflies

I absolutely adore the Flutter By stamp set by Lawn Fawn. Here is the inspiration card:

AND here is mine:

I love my  WPlus9 Landscape Borders Die and my Penny Black Heartfelt "Smile" die.

Blessings to you and yours!

Fun With New Die

Love this new Hello die from Penny Black and one of my favorite butterfly stamps and die from Hero Arts. The doily is from Martha Stewart adhesive die-cut:

Hello Die: Penny Black
Butterfly & Die: Hero Arts Butterfly & Blower CL750, Hero Arts Frame Cut ~ Flower and Butterfly Frame Cut
Embossing Folder: Sizzix
Butterfly Punch for small butterflies

Hope you are having a blessed day!

May Your Home Be Filled With Love

Home is a special place for me. It is a place where I feel safe, secure and loved. Our children are grown and on their own and establishing  homes of their own. We have made so many memories here and we are always excited when they come "home" for a visit. We want them to fill the same about home - a place where they can come and feel safe, secure and loved.

So when I found this sweet little sentiment from a very old Hero Arts mini stamp set, I thought it was perfect for a card for them.

These sweet little birds from my WPLUS9 die set look like they are right at home too :-)

Cha Cha Cha

I recently received my Hero Arts OMBRE inks and an adorable Penny Black Stamp Poppy Trio. I watched Jennifer McGuire's video several time to get the hang of using the new OMBRE ink. However, my "Cha Cha Cha" movement took a while to master. Think I still need some more practice but it will do for now. Loving the shades in each of the sets of Hero Arts OMBRE ink.

Here is what I was able to accomplish:

Sentiment: HERO ARTS Messages With Flourishes
Ink: HERO ARTS OMBRE ~ Pink to Red (However I turned it in a way that mine was Red to Pink.)
Embossing Folder: Darice
Stamp: Penny Black ~ Poppy Trio
Lawn Fawn Circle Stackables

Got to practice my "CHA CHA CHA" a little more :-)

Thank you for stopping by!
