Hi Crafty Friends!!!
Today our designer, Carrie Bryant, has some beautiful cards she has created with just one Close To My Heart stamp set. Take a look!!!
As you can see there are six different sayings along with six different sized butterflies. Making this a great value with twelve different stamps in one set.
I love this set for it’s versatility in creating cards for several different occasions. I like to make up several cards at one time so I always have a handmade card on hand for any special occasion. After all who want to pay $5.00 or more for a store bought card? Any everyone loves a handmade card better anyway.
I used some pre-made chalkboard style cards for my base, I then pulled out my watercolors and painted the background for my stamped image. I really like the bold outline of the butterflies and when I painted the inside with my watercolors they really pop off my cards. CTMH Arcylix stamps are some of the highest quality stamps I have worked with. They stamp a clean image every time. They peel off the backing and are super adhesive to the stamping block, they also clean up really easy.
I used the same butterflies on this card. After I painted them in I fussy cut them out and used some 3D pop dots to mount them to my card base. I then created a watercolor banner that I stamped my sentiment on. I used some sequins to embellish my cards too. You can find this pretty Fruity Pebbles sequin mix in TheCraftyPickle Etsy shop.
This one is my favorite. I just love this sentiment. I plan on giving this one to my daughter for her Graduation this year.
Thanks for stopping by today.
