Thinking of You Dimensional Card

Image
i Had some free time today. Made some Thinking of You cards. I started by dry embossing the yellow cardstock with a Stampin Up embossing folder.  Then I die cut a butterfly from the center.  Put some designer paper behind the cut out with some dimensionals to pop it up. Most of the work was done! I then embellished it with some Really Reasonable green ribbon. If you could see if up close-it has some shimmers in it!!  The sentiment (Stampin Up) is stamped with black archival ink. Punched with stampin up punches and added with dimensionals to add dimension to the card. I added some designer paper to the die cut butterfly. Punched the butterflies from a Stampin Up die cut folder and added pearls to the centers.   I love the feel of this card.  Has a lot of interest in the cut out section show casing the designer paper.

DecoArt products rock! Mixed media Birthday card.

I love to combine paint and stencils to make Mixed Media cards. DecoArt products make it easy and fun to do!
I started the card base as a gelli print because I love the consistency you get on the cardstock from paint being applied to it. Then I used stencils and distress inks to add interest to the background. The flowers and leaves were cut out with my cricut cartridge and then I rolled the paint onto them so the colors would match my background. I stenciled on those as well.  Left a few smaller flowers white and then started layering them getting spread out to the edges toward the bottom of the card.   The finishing touch was spreading glitter blue with my finger!  Love how it turned out.
