You're The Best

I am so addicted to making cards right now and using both My Favorite Things and my Stampin' Up! products is it any wonder.  Here is one I made yesterday and will be placing this into the MFT sketch challenge, my second entry and I am also submitting it to the new MFT Summer School challenge!

The base is Smoky Slate from Stampjn' Up! die cut from yep you guessed Blueprints 15 large stitched die.  Sweater Knit was then stamped with VersaMark, clear heat embossed then die cut and layered onto the base card.  I used a die from Blueprints 15.

A Stitched Round Rectangle die was used with retired DSP from SU.  A Watercolor Wings butterfly was stamped using 4 layers in Sahara Sand, Mint Macaron, Daffodil Delight then Midnight Muse in the centre.  This  was then die cut using the coordinating die.  A glassine butterfly was then die cut using the 2nd butterfly die from the set, adhered then pearl accents added.  Silver foil paper from SU was then used to die cut a Scribbles, which was adhered only in the centre with Glossy Accents before the butterfly was layered on top of a strip of Dimentionals.

Here is a side view where you can see all the layers.  A white peg from my stash was adhered using a Glue a Dot with a strip of silver foil hearts held underneath.  I used the Hearts Border punch from SU to achieve this.  The punched hearts were then adhered to the card using Glossy Accents.

Inside I again die cut layers in Smoky Slate and Whisper White with stitched dies then stamped a sentiment in Black Archival ink from the Watercolor Words stamp set.  Hearts were then added to embellish, two smaller in silver foil and a larger one using the Itty Bitty punch.  This was embossed silver on Whisper White using a Woodgrain stamp I had left from a previous project.  You can check that out here

As always my envelopes or not left and this one has hearts punched out in coordinating card and paper.  Great fun, I love keeping busy and seemed to have gotten over my blind spot from yesterday without the need for doing gardening, although the garden really needs done lol.

Happy days.  Take care of you.
