It's all about butterflies - Mudra CT projects intro

Hi Everyone,

Do pop over to Mudra Craft Stamps today, in order to see the new projects I made for them. This time, it's all about butterflies - you all know that I love butterflies, so I simply couldn't resist :o)

Here's a small sneak peek of what you can expect. I had so much fun with these! I don't think I will be able to part with these cards anytime soon! 


See you again soon,

Mirella

Sending happy thoughts

Hi Everyone,


Hope you've had a good start of the week. I'm sorry I didn't post yesterday - life got in the way... But I'm here today, and I will for sure be back later this week - I have another post coming up over at Mudra Craft Stamps, so stay tuned! 

Today I am sharing a relatively quick card I made for a friend's birthday - it was mostly quick due to the fact that I CASEd one of my own previous designs (and The Flower Challenge's design), hence less thinking and fiddling with layouts was involved. The card is on its way to her, and I hope she likes it - she's one of those ladies who likes her florals, so I think it should be up her alley ;o)


As you can see, I used a lot of gold on this card - I recently really enjoy it! The colours were inspired by the current Altenew challenge. I used Altenew's Beautiful Day set, which I am truly in love with - funnily enough, though, I rarely use the layering possibilities of this stampset, and there are still elements I have not used at all... so I still have plenty to play with!

I only used the outline of the flower on this card, which I heat embossed in gold. I also used one of the detail layers, and I simply stamped them with Versamark, creating a watermark on the hot pink cardstock - it's a very subtle detail, but it's really pretty in person. 

I added some more gold to the card, by flicking some watered down Delicata ink onto the front panel. I also heat embossed the edges of the green mat with the same gold embossing powder I used for the flower - I was really pleased with the look of that! 

I love the way the card shines when looked at at an angle - and imagine, no Wink of Stella this time! ;o)



I am entering this into the following challenges:


The Flower Challenge - CASE our guest designer

Have a great day,
