Thank You

Today I'm sharing a card that uses a new (to me) technique inspired by Joyce Mehrberg's card over at Happy Little Stampers April CASE The Designer Challenge. You can see Joyce's gorgeous card by clicking HERE. I absolutely love the artsy results of this technique and can't wait to try it out with additional stamp sets and dies.

Here's my creation:

And here's a closer look:

I also want to give a shout-out to Jennifer McGuire for the helpful video on how to get clear stamped images with new stamps and dye inks. This was my first time inking up the Painted Butterflies Stamp Set, and the information Jennifer shared in her video made a huge difference in the results I got when making this card. Thank you, Jennifer!

Stamps: Painted Butterflies (Altenew)
Ink: Cool Summer Night (Altenew), VersaMark (Tsukineko)
Cardstock: White (Papertrey Ink), Black (DeNami Design)

On a personal note, here are some photos from our spring snowstorm last weekend in Colorado. We ended up with 40 inches! Pepper loved it!!!

I thought about you when we heard about the snow storm & wondered how much you got--so beautiful! I love seeing puppy dogs enjoy the snow. We didn't get even 1 flake last year or this year, so poor Fritz doesn't know what it is! Fabulous take on Joyce's card--LOVE that stamp set & have it on my wishlist! I haven't tried it, but I watched Jennifer's video & was intrigued.

What a stunning and gorgeous card you made. I love how those butterflies look just flying right off the page. Thanks so much for playing along at HLS Case the Designer and for CASEing my card.

Swooning over this card and it's going straight into my CASE file. Love!

And that snow is ridiculous! I am a wuss and could not cope. When it gets down below 60F we Bermudians break out the heavy jackets and the space heaters! :D Loving that pic of Pepper with ears flapping!
