The Gnome and The Butterfly

The Gnome and The Butterfly

It has been a hot minute since I colored up some Stamping Bella!

Who says sympathy cards cannot be whimsical or quirky. I am hoping that when I have to use this card, the non sympathy style will make the recipient smile. This is a super versatile set, the gnome and the butterfly are both separate stamps. There is also a sentiment.

I did my butterfly with black and yellow. On the little dots on the butterfly I used Nuvo Dream Drops. The cloud was done with a retired die from Paper Smooches.

My sentiment is from My Favorite Things. The banner die is also from them, but retired.

Oddball Fish For The Win

Oddball Fish For The Win

Happy Sunny Wednesday from Annapolis!

As you know, I am now a Design Team Member for Papercraft Business Papercraft Challenge. Today they have a new challenge for you, with the theme: Use A Circle.

I colored my fish with copic markers. Giving them an almost monochromatic color to blend with the background paper. I added some Nuvo shimmer glitter gloss on just the bodies.

Pulling the whole scene together I used the Memory Box Large Ringlets die and My Favorite Things Iridescent Bubbles to add to the watery feel. I wanted to use the swim in your own direction sentiment, so I mounted that one fish swimming away from the flow! Lastly with the theme being “Use A Circle” I decided to round the corners on all my layers.

Copic Marker List

  • Round Fish & Fins on Long Fish: BV17, BV11, BV00
  • Eyeballs: BV20
  • Long Fish: BG49, BG13, BG11

Card Details

  • White highlights done using white jelly roll pen in size 08
  • Sentiment stamped with Versafine and heat embossed with clear embossing powder
  • Silver ringlets were made with Tim Holtz paper and 6 inch double side adhesive
  • Premium paper adhered with fun foam between it and the base of the card using 1/4 inch double side adhesive
  • Fish and Sentiment strip adhered with 3D foam squares
  • Irridescent bubbles attached with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive
