Anything is Possible, the Power is Already Inside You.

Our felt die-cut butterfly adds just the right amount of flair to this card. The paper is from "Grace" & the saying in this card is from "Be True." I had to buy this stamp set because I love this quote.

Sweet Home Card

I enjoyed working with the subtle backgrounds in the "Sweet Home" paper pack. The Nestabilities dies from Spellbinders work so well with our white core paper, they add dimension & texture when using them to cut & dry emboss paper as I did with the scallop circle. Just sand the outside edges of your white core paper & get instant character. The blue & brown polka dot flower started as one of our white daisy flowers. I sponged it with Crystal Blue ink & used Chocolate ink with the dot background stamp from "Spot on Backgrounds." I love playing around with flowers. Ink them, layer them, add pop dots inbetween the layers. Use jeweled brads for a center or try glitter or beads. Flowers make a great accent on cards or scrapbook pages.
