Handmade Greetings with Carrie Bryant

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!!!

Hello! Today I am sharing with you a few Handmade Greeting Cards that I created using my new “Your Own Kind of Wonderful” CTMH Acrylix stamp set  
 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.
Happy Scrappin’
Carrie

  1. Carrie I love how beautiful you make every card look! Of course the flair from The Crafty Pickle is always a pleasure to see too! Can’t wait to use mine,

  2. We love butterflies here and your last card is my favorite as well. That sentiment will be very versatile. Cards or PL!

  3. Carrie, you are so talented! I love the butterflies. My son, Alex’s girlfriend has a butterfly tattoo on her wrist. I’d love something like this for her. She is putting herself through college & working hard. She came from a difficult past & doesn’t have any parental help. This would be very special to her.
