Butterfly Pop Up Box

Hello there... me again. I have been busy in the craftroom, creating some beautiful things. With Spring finally here, I have been focusing on beautiful spring cards with butterflies. This here is a new 5 x 7 birthday pop up box card, filled with beautiful butterflies. These butterflies were handstamped and then die cut using the beautiful Heartfelt Creations Butterfly Medley collection. These stamps and dies are gorgeous and allow you to stamp and die cut many different butterflies all in one pass of the die cutting machine. It was fun to color these butterflies with my Copic markers. The butterflies were embossed using a metallic embossing powder by "Sprinkle & Sparkle". This created a dimensional outline. Which helps create a barrier for your alcohol markers. I also embellished some of the butterflies with some craft rhinestones. The box is mainly pink with some other pastels, fitting for Spring.

As always, I would like to invite you to check out  My Etsy Shop for some additional inspiration. I am excited to enter the Simon Says Stamp Blog Monday Challenge - things with wings
 Feel free to leave me a comment. Have fun creating. Until next time, Sabrina

Intricate Square Flower Card

Good evening everyone, I hope you are doing well. Today I wanted to share a beautiful card with you, which uses some very intricate border frames. This card is a traditional 5.5 by 5.5 inch card. The intricate frame/ border Die is by Sue Wilson and looks stunning. Her dies are so intricate and just gorgeous. These dies release beautifully from the paper. The pretty frame is surrounded by beautiful hand made roses using the Heartfelt Creations classic rose collection of stamps and dies. Each flower is hand stamped, die cut, then colored with Memento ink and layered for a beautiful full look. I used some glimmer spray to stiffen the flowers and to give them some extra sparkle. The card is filled in with some beautiful little accent leaves and swirls. The words were Die cut using the cute Valentine's 2017 collection by Lawn Fawn

Religious Easter Card

Good morning, today I would like to share a beautiful religious Easter die pop up box card with some great foiled accents including a beautiful gold foiled cross which is the main focal point within this beautiful traditional box card. I combined dog wood florals with the cross accented by gold embossed green leaves. A beautiful detailed dove also accents this beautiful card. The dog wood flowers are courtesy of the beautiful Heartfelt Creations stamp and die sets - and were hand stamped using a gold embossing powder and were than hand assembled in two layers to create a beautiful three dimensional flower. This box is very intricate and detailed.

For additional cards and craft inspiration feel free to check out my greeting cards inside My Etsy Shop . Most of my cards are 3D cards and/ or greeting card boxes. All of my boxes fold flat and fit inside a standard A7 envelope for easy mailing.  This week, I am sharing this card with the Simon Says Wednesday Chalkenge: Use more than one die or stamp
Have a great week and create something beautiful.
Take care! Sabrina

Water Color Easter Card

Happy Spring everyone. Spring is officially here and I can't believe we are already in late March. It seems like this year has flown by already. I have been busy in the craft room creating some beautiful box cards. The card below is a beautiful water color card. The images were hand stamped using the gorgeous Art Impression water color stamp sets. Then the images were hand colored using watercolor markers. The technique includes off - stamping and multiple impression stamping without re-inking the stamps, which creates a beautiful and more natural water color look taking advantage of many shades of the same stamped images. The box is chock full of Easter & Spring inspired watercolor images, including a little bunny on a garden chair, a wheel barrow full of wildflowers and an adorable old fashioned bird house. A beautiful "Easter Greetings" Die cut adorns the front flap of this boxcard and the edges of each of the flaps have a pretty scalloped punch border.

This week, I am entering the Art Impression Spring Challenge
Have fun crafting and create something beautiful.
Thanks Sabrina
