All of the background silhouette images are from a set I bought at Hobby Lobby that I had never seen before. The company is Inque Boutique. I'm really impressed with this set called Silhouettes. They are rubber cling stamps and this set has 12 different stamps in the set, and the set came with its own stamp pad. The stamps are high quality, and it was only $11.99! When you go to their blog (above) they have a video on a cool stamping technique, but they also have this thing that if you upload a card or project to their gallery and they select it for the "card or project of the week", they give you $50.00 in free product. I've not seen that on any of the other stamp company's sites! So, back to the card. . .I used Colorbox Teddy Bear Brown ink for the silhouette images, then Versamark embossing ink for the little butterfly and embossed that in copper ep. I used my Cuttlebug butterfly die/embossing set for the butterfly and mounted it with a foam sticky square. The sentiment is from a set that I bought months ago, but have no idea who makes it. Stamped that on to cs, matted it, then used a copper paint marker to go around it and create the corner brackets. Tied the ribbon and done. Here is the closeup of the Cuttlebug butterfly. . .
One last thing, I received my blog candy that I won on Rita's blog. Go visit her and see her creations, she is so sweet! This is what she sent:
This was the card she sent with the gifts below:
This was my first blog candy win ever, and I'm glad I won it from her. Thanks again Rita!
That's it for now! Don't forget to look at the pic of the week! Stay tuned for something new coming up in the next few posts! Thanks, as always, for visiting my little 'ole blog! I'll be seeing you on yours!
