Hearts & Butterflies

This card was made using the It's Your Day Stamp (the double stamp set that is currently $5.00 with any $35.00 order - through Sept. 30). I stamped the hearts and the butterflies on White Daisy Cardstock, and used Gypsy and Lagoon ink and cardstock.  

Quick Tip:
To get the color variation on the butterflies simply stamp off on another piece of paper and then stamp over the butterfly to get a lighter shade. 

Have a Happy Day!

Harvest Banner

This banner is inspired by the one located on page 86 of the Autumn/Winter 2012 CTMH Idea Book.  The letters and banner pieces were cut using the new Cricut Artiste cartridge and my Cricut. The leaves were stamped using the Fall Harvest stamp set and then colored with the new alcohol-based markers.  The markers are amazing - very fun to color and blend with!  The letters are covered with Liquid Glass to give shine and dimension and each of the banner pieces are outlined with Liquid Glass and covered with Prisma Glitter. The banner is connected with Hemp Twine and the ends are tied with Burlap Ribbon.

All of these items can be found at my CTMH website : brandiburns.ctmh.com

Don't forget this month's promotion - The It's Your Day Stamp Set is just $5.00 with any $35 purchase.

Thanks for visiting me! :)
