Butterfly Wishes

Today I felt like doing a girly Tilda card! I was inspired by a challenge on the Simon Says Stamp blog. They have a Bingo challenge and I chose charms / punches-diecuts / ribbon-twine.

Here you can see a bit of a peek into the inside:

Daisy Thank You

Am loving my flower stamps lately and can't wait to get outside and grow some real ones. With this fresh new snow outside, looks like I'll have to "settle" for stamped flowers for now. Today's card is a thank you card created to try out a technique from Gina K. - she calls it the reverse spellbinder. Instead of the image being popped up, the frame is. Such a fun technique - I will definitely be trying this again.

Supplies used:

Paper: Gina K. Designs
Stamps: CTMH and Heartfelt Creations
Markers: Copic
Pearls: CTMH
Ink: Momento - Tuxedo Black
Dies: Spellbinders
Ribbon: CTMH

I just love the "Celebrate In Style" stamp set by Gina K. Designs and today I finally got a chance to "play" with it. I was inspired by a GKD team member (Lee) and her Celebrate in Pink creation and I CASEd her design for a challenge on the Stamp TV website.
