Karin’s Gorgeous Butterflies!

Karin shares a lovely Spring design based on our Card Sketch! I hope it will inspire you to join the challenge!

Karin started by using the Just Stitching Hearts dies to create the pretty pattern on the Storm Cloud panel! It’s such a simple step but it adds so much detail!

Using a stamping tool like a MISTI, Karin first stamped the Flutter By butterflies in Jellyfish Copic-friendly ink on white cardstock. She left the stamp in the MISTI while she colored the butterflies in beautiful Spring color combinations. Then she returned the butterflies to the MISTI to stamp them once again with Clear Embossing Ink and emboss them with gold embossing powder!

Thanks for sharing this fun technique with us today, Karin! Your card is so gorgeous!

Check out the Card Sketch challenge and join the fun! This challenge is open until Sunday, April 19th at 11:59PM ET.


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

We have a super talented Guest Designer to kick off the new year! Please welcome Lynn Dionne! She has been playing in our challenges and she always inspires and impresses us with her unique designs! She shares her creativity at her blog Pink Whisper Designs and at her YouTube channel.

Lynn is embracing the theme with a calendar easel card, saying goodbye to the old year and welcoming a shiny new year! Her new products are Tree Before ‘n Afters and Foursquare Backdrop: Landscape! For the something old, Lynn used Riley’s ABCs, Little Picket Fence Border and Everyday Sentiment Banners. Be sure to visit her blog for all the details for making this amazing card!

Now let’s see how our awesome Design Team was inspired by the Something Old, Something New theme!

Joyce combined our new You’re Just My Type and Love Poems with our older Love Letters set! Her adorable card is a perfect Valentine or just to send some love!

Jessica‘s fantastic clean and simple design pairs our Thanks a Latte stamp set with our new Just Stitching Hearts die set!

It’s never too early to start making those Christmas cards! Samantha just had too many ideas this year so she’s starting on next Christmas! Her festive design combines Ho-Ho-Holidays with our older Toboggan Together and Puffy Cloud Borders! She even highlighted our very first alpha set, Harold’s ABCs with her punny greeting!

Christy‘s charming card combines sweet sayings from Love Poems with cute little mice from Wild for You and Elphie Selfie! She used Stitched Circle Stackables to create this adorable “cheesy” design!

Franci featured our new Stud Puffin set with clouds from Butterfly Kisses and a little envelope Gleeful Gardens! She created this sweet, shaped design using an Outside In Stitched Heart Stackable!

Karin‘s beautiful card features flowers from Flutter By with new Simple Wavy Banners and Wavy Sayings!

How adorable is Samantha‘s sweet mash-up of You’re Just My Type and Keep on Swimming! She added a greeting from Reveal Wheel Sentiments!
