Here are my cards featuring these stamp and die sets!

First up I have Beautiful Butterflies from Melanie Muenchinger: This set will be back in stock soon.

I had fun creating this card. I used my White Pigment Ink to do these techniques. I saw Jennifer McGuire do these techniques and thought it would be pretty for the butterfly dies. I die cut the butterflies in Turquoise Sea and then glues them on a panel and ink blended the White Pigment Ink all over. Then I took the New Fizzy stencil from the Peace, Love & Sushi Card Kit and ink blended white over it and cut a panel for the card. Die cut the tag in White layering weight and stamped the greeting in Obsidian Amalgam ink. Popped it up and put the card together and added a die cut butterfly to the inside.

Blue Layer with butterflies – 3 7/8″ x 3 1/4″

Fizzy stenciled panel – 3 7/8″ x 1 3/4″

White strip – 3 7/8″ x 1/16″

The Black Onyx layer behind that is 1/8″ larger 4″ x 5 1/4″

card Base – 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″

Here are the products I used to create this card! ❤

Next is Wildflowers & Weeds by Lisa Hetrick :

I could see this card in my head and I had to get it on paper. I stenciled the Funky Flourish Stencil in Plum Punch ink over a little Plum Punch Ink Blended area. Then I stamped the images on Layering Weight Card stock and die cut them out. Die cut the ink blended stencil panel with the Master Layouts 2 dies and also the Black Onyx layer. Using the HELLO die I lined it up where I wanted to cut it and then ran it through the die cutting machine. I saved the cut out words for another card, and die cut several HELLOs out of White Heavy Base Weight Card Stock then glues 3 layers together. I laid the pansy where I wanted to attach it on top of the panel with the word hello cut out, I then laid the Hello die back in the cut out word. Used some purple tape to hold it then ran it through the die cutter. So now it fits around the word nicely. Glued everything together and popped up the top of the flower but used Connect glue to hold it around the H of Hello.

Here are the Gina K. Designs Items I used for this card:

and for my last card I used Grow Positive Thoughts by Hannah Drapinsky :

For this card I started with a piece of watercolor paper and smooshed ink on a no porous service, (My glass mat) and then spritzed with water until the ink was real fluid. The laid my paper on top and kinda tapped my fingers around on it so the paper would make good contact with the ink. Let it sit for a minute then lifted it. Let it dry real good then placed in my Misti and then positioned the image and stamped with the Obsidian Ink. I stamped it several times as the watercolor paper is rough and the image needs several inkings. Then I used my zig clean color markers to color the image. I did it really loose and let color spin out of the lines! ❤

Here are the Gina K. Designs items I used for this card:

Hello and Welcome to Karen's Creative Designs. I have been enjoying making cards for about 6 years now. I started out making Scrapbooks for the Grandkids. Searched You-Tube for techniques for background and found Gina K.Designs. I was hooked and just had to make cards! I have always been one to have a craft of some sort to do. I have done some crochet, jewelry making, pottery, cake making, ect.... you get the picture! I am hooked on card making and I love that it brings a smile to someones face when they receive a handmade card!
