Pretty paper...

Do you ever get those ideas in your head, then find yourself halfway through the project asking WHAT WAS I THINKING? That was most definitely this project - but I'm so happy I stuck it out as I LOVE the finished project!

I made this beautiful card first, and absolutely loved it. So, I thought to myself, that would make a beautiful background for a page in my sister's wedding album - recreate it! I think I forgot how much work it would be...

For both backgrounds, I started with a white cardstock base and then had fun with my distress oxide inks. I smooshed them on my craft mat, spritzed with water and then smooshed them on my paper in different directions/places/etc.

Once I was happy with my colors and the paper was dry, I got out the beautiful Raisin Boat All in Toile stamp. Seriously, isn't it gorgeous!

I'm a huge fan of purple, so that's the color I went with. I used my purple ink, and then embossed each flower. For the scrapbook page, using my stamp positioning tool made this SO MUCH EASIER! I designed a section, and then repeated it multiple times, just by moving my paper around. Truth be told, I kind of forgot how long it would take to emboss all this! That stamp embossed looks so cool!

To finish off my card, I added a sentiment from the Raisin Boat Flourishing Thoughts stamp, some coordinating fiber and nuvo drops.

To finish off my scrapbook page, I added some fiber and some metal embellishments.

Butterfly Birthday...

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
DT Theresa here from Theresa's Crafty Creations
and it's my day to take over the blog!!

Today I thought I would share a Butterfly Birthday -

I made myself another rainbow card! Since I already
had the items out from the last rainbow card I made
I thought I could make a second one at the same time!

*** To see my Other Rainbow Card (CLICK HERE) ***

So I used a scrap piece of Canson Watercolor paper
and some of my Distress Oxides  
- All I did was blend an assortment of Distress Oxides
onto the watercolor paper then added a few drops of
water here & there and then dried it with my heat tool.

I also took a strip of black & white Designer Paper
from Doodlebug and layered the 2 pieces
onto my 110lb. Recollections White Cardbase

I already had the butterflies completed when I
made my last Rainbow card - I used the 
Beautiful Raisin Boat Stamp set called (IMAGINE)
I just Popped them up on my card with some
Dimensional Foam Dots...

The Happy Birthday Sentiment is a Victorine
Originals Stamp and I really like how it
fills out the bottom portion of my card!

I then added some pretty Ice cube Jewels 
to complete the design... and now it's ready to be
used for someone's birthday!!!

I also wanted to share the inside of my card with you -
I like having the insides completed at the same time as
the outside - This way it's ready to go when I need it!

I'm using another Victorine Originals Sentiment -
This one is called (Very best of birthdays)
and I just cut a strip of the rainbow paper I made
just to tie it all together!!!
