Honeysuckle Butterfly – Card Making

Hi everyone

I hope you are enjoying the weekend.

I never thought I would say this but it rained last night and Oh, it is “Bliss”.  It’s lovely and cool today although it is forecast to go back up to the 30’s next week.  I can’t wait for Autumn to get here and some cooler weather. I am really itching to get outside and craft.  I now have a new shed for the beast but I will tell you about that on my other blog. Sooo happy!  I’m easily pleased! lol!

Today I would like to share a couple of cards I made using some of Chocolate Baroque’s new stamps.

For my first card, I put some dye based ink on a plastic file wallet, let the ink separate naturally and then lightly placed a piece of coated card stock on it.

I then just stamped the image using black archival ink and added a little bit more color here and there.

For my second card I created a background using a CI mask, a light box and an embossing tool.  When I had dry embossed the pattern I used the mask on the embossed side of the card to add the color using distress inks and a sponge.

I cut an ornate square out of a piece of green card and punched a smaller square out of white card.

I stamped the little house on the white card, colored it in with ink and edged the square with green ink.

Before I leave you today I would like to thank all of my lovely blogging friends for your continued support.  Your visits and comments are truly appreciated and mean a great deal.

Take care everyone and Happy Stamping.

    These are fab Flo! I especially like the background on the top one, great technique.
    Been thinking of my trip last year, as Beth hopped on a flight to Malaga last week, to stay with a Spanish Uni friend in Marbella, lucky girl! Glad the rain has cooled things down for you, it’s been cooler & wetter here too.
    Happy Sunday to you,

    Lovely cards – the butterfly card is gorgeous – very striking. The colours of the background on Snowy Scenes is beautiful – so strange for us crafters doing Christmas in such warm weather xx

    You didi it again; both cards the colours in the BG and the image fit perfect together and the frame on the second is stunning! Hope you have a fun sunday! Hugs, Gerrina

    I think I can see the change of seasons in your cards, Florence! 🙂 The warm, rich tones of your Honeysuckle Butterfly–Lovely!! (I love honeysuckle…we used to have a bush of it when I was growing up and I’d pick the flowers and ‘drink’ the nectar!) Our butterflies have already gone for the season, so I know that Fall/Winter is coming soon! And look at your wonderful Snowy Scene card! You’ve got it all over me–making Christmas cards already!! I’m not that ready for Winter, yet 😉 Fantastic cards, Flo!! Can’t wait to read about your crafting shed!! How Exciting!! XOXO-Shari

    Just lovely, Flo … sweet snowy scene with such lovely soft embossing and sponging … I’m particularly taken with the background on the honeysuckle and butterfly card … gorgeous colours and such an impression of depth! Anita 🙂
