Hello friends! Did you all have an enjoyable weekend? Mine was busy...busy...busy...so I am posting my last card from my reserves. Oh My! I try to keep a few cards ahead so that if I need a break, I still have things to post on the blog here and there. But I better get down to my stamp room tonight, because this is all I've got!
When I made this card I thought I had finished it, but when I looked at the card, I felt like that purple square in the top left needed something. After a bit of trial and error I decided to make a "butterfly trail" using these little rhinestone-like stickers from Stampendous. They have little gold rims on them and that is all that the picture has picked up....but the centers are actually bling. The thing with these little sticker thingys is that they are time consuming...I needed to use my QuickStik tool, which I LOVE. It is so handy dandy! It has two parts...this little gooey stuff that is good for sticking to things and picking up and then the other end that you are able to remove from the unit...this removable part has a tiny little "spatuala" for peeling things like these teensy little stickers off and a pointy side. I use this QuickStik all the time for tiny little embellishments and sticky pieces of papers...etc... Then after placing all those sticker thingys down....they kept coming off! here and there a few were missing so I would replace those and then another one someplace was gone....then by the time I finished taking the pictures...another one or two were missing! ACK! it was driving me nuts! I mailed it off and hoped that they were still there when it arrived. I won't be using those again on the outside of my card. However they do make nice flat embellishments on the INSIDE of the cards. I don't like to use bulky embellies on the insides of the cards, I don't like the way it "dents" the inside of the cards when closed and mailed.
I used theis sweet Tilda as a Butterfly image...which is on sale at Magnolia-licious for only $8!
