Stampin With Scraps: Butterflies

Made this sample for my "Stampin With Scraps" card series.  I used the Stampin' Up! Elegant Butterfly punch and the greeting and small butterfly are from the Butterfly Basics stamp set.  This was an easy card to make.  The hardest part was choosing what color Designer Series Paper to use.

Technique Tuesday: Smackin Acetate Technique

To create this technique I used a small piece of transparency paper and put a few drops of reinker colors on the acetate. On a separate piece of card stock I brushed on some Crystal Effects and smooched the card stock and the acetate together and let dry.  I stamped the ship on the acetate with Stazon Ink.



On this sample I added some glitter powder and more colors for a fall scenery look.
