I can’t make just one.

Hi everyone, hope you’re having a fun weekend!  I took a little break and created a quick card with leftover pieces from when I made this card and this one:



(Supplies: Butterfly and brocade background stamps, gems, and notecard by Hero Arts, “hi, friend” by A Muse, ribbon and safety pin by Making Memories.  Pattern paper and embossing powder by American Crafts.  Tag die cut by Cuttlebug.  I misted the butterfly with Perfect Pearls in water — can’t stop doing that.  Colored with Copic markers.  The antennae are made with thread.)

When I have my supplies out I can never stamp just one of something — do you do this too?  I started doing it so that when I mess up I have a backup — and if I don’t mess up, I end up with lots of extra cards to send to friends and family!

Happy weekend hugs,

  16. Love the colors on this card! Yes, sometimes I end up with extras. A lot of times I throw the extra pieces into a small box and forget about them… I should have a “leftover” day of creating each month or something. =)

    Such  gorgeous colors and all the yumminess in one! Love that butterfly!

  18. One project always seems to lead to another for me too.  I don’t do extras on purpose, sometimes it’s a certain sketch that  I feel the need to make in different colors with different images.

  19. What a nice and elegant card ! Love it !
