CHA IO DT Blog Hop Day 3


Welcome to the third day of our  CHA DT Blog Hop!  Our winner for Day 2 is Larissa Heskett!  Congratulations Larissa, happy shopping too, and I have emailed your Gift Certificate.  You can check out our new Fall/Winter dies and stamps HERE, and the clear sets HERE.  Mitra is also introducing them at CHA at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV, July 22 through 25.

For my card today I chose Gary Robertson's Butterfly and Pumpkins and the sentiment is from the clear set Hydrangea.  I created it by:

  1. Stamping the image on white cardstock with Memento Espresso Truffle twice, painted the first one with Twinkling H2O's.
  2. Cut out the butterfly and leaf to the right, turned the leaf over and traced for the left side and drew the tip of the butterfly wing, attached with tape to each.  Painted painted both shapes, embossed on reverse side with stylus and mounted with 3D-pop dots.  Added black edge to image with Scripto pen.
  3. Mounted on die cut from Spellbinders Polka Dots and white cardstock at an angle. Mounted that on black cardstock and then on Dotted Swiss cardstock.
  4. Added black organdy bow, pearl stick pin with pearl heart bead, and 3 10mm pearl stickers.
