Beautiful Day Butterfly

Hi everyone.  I hope you're doing well.  I am trying to be pro-active and get posts done as well as loading cards to my Etsy shop.  Did you know I sell my handmade cards on my Etsy shop?  If you didn't, click HERE to see what's available. It's a time consuming process but I have to make time to do this.  I was able to upload about 15 cards today in about 2 1/2 hours.

I wanted to share this card with you which is one we made in one of my stamp classes.  I used the butterfly from the Beautiful Day stamp set.  I stamped it on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and a piece of Vellum cardstock using VersaMark ink.  I then heat embossed with Silver embossing powder.  After it cooled I then colored the butterfly using Stampin' Blends- Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Night of Navy and Old Olive. Both on the card and the back of the Vellum.  By doing this it gives the look of stained glass. I then fussy cut the Vellum Butterfly and attached it to the top of the butterfly using a couple of Mini Glue Dots.  I then stamped the mountain and cloud images from the Waterfront stamp set on the sides of the Butterfly and on top.  In the middle I stamped "Friends".

This is such an easy card to put together and your friends will be quite impressed.  You can purchase any of the supplies I used from my On-Line store and below you will find a list of products I used to make this card.

Birthday Gof Cart

I wanted to share with you a golf cart I made for one of our neigbors who turned 80 and is a huge golfer as well as a Green Bay Packers Fan. 

We live in The Villages, FL which is an over 55 community with 12 Championship and 35+ Executive Golf Courses. The Villages exceeds the second largest golf facility in the world, Mission Hills in China, which has 216 holes.  So needless to say, everyone, well at least everyone who lives here loves to golf.  And I thought this would make a great gift. 

What do you think?  Leave me a comment.
