The requirements were to use 2 stamp sets, a Spellbinders die and sequins.  The two stamps used are Fun Stampers Journey’s, Script and Summer Garden, the Spellbinders Shapeabilities die, Back to Basic Tags was chosen. The card stock used is Pretty Pansy and Grape Fusion.

Copic Markers were used to color the flower and leaves.  A little Journey Glaze on the flower was dusted with Journey Sparkle Dust.  Copic Markers colors include: V20, V15, V0000, G82, G40. YG, Y4, Y18, and BG0000.  Accents,  a few sequins and sheer gold ribbon.

The background stamp is Brocade Print stamped in Denim Days. The balloons are from Birthday Sketch using Summer Days, Hucklebery Fusion and Berrylicious Smoothie ink pads.  I used our Journey Glaze to cover the balloons and sprinkled Journey Sparkle Dust on top.

The banner is from the stamp set Banner Party and stamped with Summer Days and Berrylicious Smoothie. Spellbinders Shapeabilities Back to Basics Tags was used to highlight the sentiment. Other accents include Journey Twine and glitter pearls.

I know it is a little early for Father’s Day Cards but you need to get started or it is here before you know it.  It is difficult to see the black background but it was stamped with Fun Stampers Journey background stamp, Brocade Print, and clear embossed.  Spellbinders Circle Dies were used to cut the circles.  The fish is a Fun Stampers Journey ATC number 124, Lucky,  colored with Copic Markers YG03, YG67, BG01, and BG15 and mounted on FSJ Card Stock Blue Lagoon and Honey Dew Drop. Finally the sentiment is from another Fun Stampers Journey stamp set entitled Year Round Greetings.
This was a fun card to make.  Hope you like it. thanks for stopping by!

Flowers, Flowers, Flowers

Fun Stampers Journey, Beach Breeze Card Stock was used for the lattice work and placed over FSJ, Honey Dew Drop Card Stock. card.  The  flowers from the stamp set, Spring Garden, we're stamped on FSJ Watermelon Card Stock and Strawberry Cream Card Stock .  The Watermelon stamp pad was used to enhance the Strawberry Cream flowers.  Journey Glaze was placed of top and dusted with Journey glitter and jewels added..   The darker flower was enhanced using glue and FSJ Oatmeal Glitter and a jewel.  The leaves are cut from Kiwi Slice Card Stock using the Spellbinders die, Foliage.  They were also brushed with Journey Glaze and dusted with glitter.

I am so excited with the results of this card and I hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by. Maybe this card has sparked your creativity!

What goes better with butterflies than flowers.

My butterflies are colored with Copic Markers R81, R83, R85 and R0000. A very light coat of of Journey Glaze was brushed on to the butterflies and dusted with glitter. I am really happy with the results!
