Hi everyone, how has your week been so far? Mine’s been Busy Busy Busy! Can you believe it’s almost Friday? I can’t.
But! Those are not the “three B‘s” I’m referring to. These are:
Hope you like my little note — and my little joke, hee hee.
I made this card the same day I made this one. It’s also inspired by the Container Store — this time by a lovely little blue + brown box I saw in the gift wrap section. (It’s not online so that I can share tho, bummer.)
(Supplies: Butterfly and brocade stamps, and pearls by Hero Arts. Aqua Zing! embossing powder by American Crafts. “a little note” by A Muse. Ribbon by Martha Stewart. Stick pins and neato safety pin by Making Memories. Perfect Pearls, Tea Dy and Vintage Photo Distress inks by Ranger. Copic Markers to color the butterfly. A super quick how-to: I embossed the brocade on white cardstock, then rubbed the distress inks all over it using a sponge and wiped off the embossed parts with a baby wipe. Love the vintage look this gives! Then I colored the butterfly with markers, cut it out, and misted it with Perfect Pearls in water. Used a bit of thread for the antennae — a trick I learned from Shari — thanks Shari! Assembled the rest of the items and ta dah!)
Bye Blogging Buddies — sorry, couldn’t resist!
