Hello crafty friends!! This is Brenda Noelke from My PaperCut Creations, back for my 2nd guest post this week (find my first post here)! I am featuring three new stamp sets today – Layered Rose and Sentimental Words! Two of which are on my first card.
This floral layering set is so easy to line up and creates such dimension.
I began by stamping the flowers with three shades of pink ink onto white cardstock. The leaves also have three layers, but I chose to only use two, stamping them in green. I fussy cut the stamped images. Next, I die-cut two circles from vellum and white heat embossed the sentiment onto the smaller one. Glimmer paste was applied through a polka-dot stencil onto a panel of pink cardstock. Once dry, the card was assembled. I applied liquid adhesive behind the heat embossed letters and popped the flowers and leaves up with dimensional adhesive, for added dimension. A few white sequins finish off the card.

My second card focuses on a beautiful butterfly stamp set.
This set provides different ways to stamp your butterflies! It contains a solid image and a couple of layers, so you can stamp the entire butterfly. Or, if you are totally addicted to coloring like I am, you can stamp only the outline.
I started off by silver heat embossing the outline of the butterflies onto white cardstock and then colored them with watercolor markers. I blended three different inks onto a white cardstock panel, then spritzed it with clear and pearlized water. The sentiment was heat embossed in white onto the ink-blended panel, before trimming the panel slightly on each side. Metallic tape was adhered onto the A2 size cardbase and the ink-blended panel was adhered. The butterflies were fussy cut and then adhered diagonally across the card. I only applied adhesive to the centers of the butterflies, allowing the wings to pop up to create movement and dimension. Finally, some dimensional drops were added around the butterflies.
