Butterfly Fence

Hi, it's Holly posting today!  I bought this gorgeous Butterfly By Fence stamp, (Impression Obsession), and once I started coloring it, I fell more and more in love with it.  I decided to keep it rustic and natural for my first card.


I stamped the Butterfly By Fence stamp onto some cream cardstock and then I colored it with Copic markers.  I took my time to add some shading and "wood texture", I love how it turned out.  I added a little sparkle by using the Wink of Stella Pen over the butterfly and the two open flowers.  Isn't that glitter wonderful?


For my background, I stamped the Wood Texture stamp, (Impression Obsession), onto some Kraft cardstock and then I sponged the edges before adhering it to an orange card base.

I adhered my butterfly piece to the background and then I sealed the whole thing with some MicroGlaze to prevent smudges and running ink.

Last, I stamped the greeting from the Anytime Sentiments set, (Impression Obsession), onto some cream cardstock, cut it out with a circle die, and then adhered it to the bottom of the card.

It's fun to combine glitter with a rustic piece like this.  It's that little unexpected touch that brings a smile to people's faces.


A great card for many occassions! Thanks Holly!

His Word, My Light

Hi, it's Diana! I love lighthouses.  There's just something about them and my current technique craze is stenciling so I combined them here with another favorite - scripture.


First I painted my yellow card stock with Tim Holtz Tarnished Brass Distress Stain.

I then used Dreamweaver Regular Embossing Paste on top of that with my ray stencil.  I used Versamark Cloud White to make my paste a little whiter and then Wink of Stella to make the rays shimmer. I die cut this by using the Standard Circles dies from Spellbinders.

I stamped the lighthouse and used Black embossing powder. Then I fussy cut it out and popped it on top of the circle of rays. 

The sentiment is from an Our Daily Bread Designs stamp set, called Light of the World. There are other ODBD stamps available here.

If you don't see a link below for some items used, you can send an email to Beverly at beverly@classycardsnsuch.com.


Your card and scripture are so inspiring! Thanks Diana!
