Hi there!  Laurie here with you today sharing some crafty inspiration with you!



I created two cards using the Butterfly Garden Plate Layer C die.  For the first one, I used warm ink colors that I sponged onto the die cut panel.



For the sentiment I die cut the Big Hugs die from black cardstock and mounted it on a vellum shadow layer.  The great thing about this die set is that both the word and shadow layer dies are included together!

The stamped sentiment is from the Dragonfly Greetings clear stamp set.



When I’m needing to replenish my card stash, I try to create multiple cards at the same time.  It really doesn’t take that much longer to die cut the layers twice instead of only once.  Even though I chose different colors to sponge on the background, I used the same gold and white paint to splatter on.



My second card features cool ink colors.  I usually choose three ink colors to use when I’m sponging a background like this.  I also try to choose colors that blend well together.





I’m so glad you joined me here today!  I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
