What I love: Butterflies and Something NEW!

Good morning, hope you are doing very well this Wednesday morning. Today is the day I share something I created just because I love it! Today's card features butterflies, a new technique and a new stamp set, all things that make me smile. Here we go! 

I knew that the butterflies in the Beautiful Day set were needed in my stamp stash as soon as I saw them. Also love the sentiments in this set as they have large and small fonts and expressions that work well together in many different combinations.  I colored them in with Copics, added a bit of shimmer and paired them with pretty patterned paper for my card front. 

Now for the fun! The new technique is a window pop-up card, as shared HERE by creative artist Jennifer McGuire. Her cards are gorgeous and her videos are amazing. I will want to try this technique again and again, as Jennifer shared several designs. 

Here's the pop up when you open the card.  I sponged ink to create the clouds and added another die cut butterfly. There is a space to the right to add your signature horizontally. 

And here is the whole card opened. I couldn't resist decorating ALL the parts, ha! 

Hope you've enjoyed my post. I've loved reading your sweet comments. Know what else I love?  The wonderful stamping community where we share, learn and encourage one another. Keep smiling, you are simply the BEST! 

Be yourself
     Delight in your craft
