Hello everyone! I haven't made a card for a little while and I thought I needed a break from writing my school reports and decided to have some creative time. I liked the Tic Tac Toe challenge and decided to play along!

I have used specialty papers - thread- and builder stamps in my card.

I used papers from Kaisercraft Bow and Arrow collection as my base papers. I machine stitched around the edge of my papers (thread part of the challenge). I then stamped the largest flower and leaves from the Altenew Peony Bouquet and die cut them with their matching dies.

I have been wanting to have a card that had a trellis, so I created one using two Spellbinder dies. I used two rectangular dies to create the frame and then used a background die to create the rest of the trellis. I die cut the Kensinton Brand die by Memory Box and used sponge daubers and distress inks to colour it in! Once dry I added clear Wink of Stella to the butterflies and to the flowers.


Paper: Kaisercraft Bow and Arrow  6 1/2" paper pad

Stamps: Altenew Peony Bouquet and dies

Inks: Distress inks spun sugar, worn lipstick, picked rasberry, shabby shutters and gathered twigs

Altenew frosty pink, cotton candy, coral berry, frayed leaf, forest glaciers and evergreen, Wink of Stella clear

Dies: Memory Box Kensignton Branch, Spellbinders Long Classic rectangle and Grateful Lattice

Thanks for stopping by!
