Non Traditional Sympathy card

Here is a non traditional sympathy card I made for one of my blog buddies Ladies, Ink. The children used to always make cards with their grandmother so I thought I would try this out.


I have never made a non traditional sympathy card but I gave it a try.

I used one of the stamp tv kits from GinaK.

Butterflies in Flight

Sorry I have not been updating my blog but I had some issues but I am better now.  I made a card using all of Tim Holtz stamps.  I just recently took a class and I decided to use the card as a guide.  The Tim Holtz stamps are just so unique and you can take them to be vintage or modern and I love the flexibility. I tried out the new Eclipse masking tape. I have never used the tape.  I like that you can stamp on the tape and then you can do your mask but the best think is you can use it multiple times!!!!!  I wanted to make the butterflies pop so I used some Art Glitter Systems for the wings.  I like it turned out.

All of the stamps are from Tim Holtz.

Here is the card that I made in class that inspired it.

All of the stamps for the purple butterfly card is from Bline Designs.
