Unity Stamps Be Inspired Challenge

Today is the last day to post our cards for the Be Inspired challenge at Unity Stamps.  I made this card Saturday, but hadn’t had time to post until today.  Almost missed it!!

Be Inspired Challenge

I started out by creating a mixed media background using a piece of manila folder and blending Distress Inks in Mowed Lawn, Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon, and Picked Raspberries.   I then cut it to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 to make the base of the card; then I used three different stencils to add some accents.

I added a piece of vellum to soften the colors and for the “Hello Darling” sentiment I used my new stamp set, Butterfly Endearment.  I used Shabby Shutters and immediately added clear embossing powder.  I just love that I don’t have to use different colors of embossing powder because the distress inks stay wet.


Then I used the left over piece of the manila folder and stamped the everything wonderful circle stamp using Mowed Lawn.  For the collaged butterfly I used the same colors and also embossed it with clear embossing powder.

Finally, I added some green raffia and green confetti hearts.

I really enjoyed making this card and I’m hoping it gets chosen!

See you soon,
