I’ve had a hard time finding my mojo lately and so I really needed a sketch. This one appealed to me because it called to my designer series paper which makes cardmaking so much easier. How beautiful is that paper! I had an issue putting it on the Soft Suede layer straight so out comes the trimmer and a new Soft Suede layer. If it wasn’t for the dimensionals under the Blackberry Bliss pattern, you may not have known I had an issue putting it together straight. 🙂
I used the Stamparatus to do the sentiment so I could emboss it twice. I stamped it with Versamark ink, sprinkled with copper embossing powder, and heat set. Then I stamped it again with Versamark ink, sprinkled it with copper embossing powder, and heat set! Three times is even smoother but I was late with this post already. 🙂
I still have the Myths & Magic Glimmer paper on my table so I used it on this card too. I’ve got glitter everywhere. 🙂
I stamped the “Happy Birthday” from the Butterfly Basics stamp set on vellum in Basic Black Archival ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. I did a double layer of the vellum to help the sentiment stand out over all that glitter.
I think I use the sentiments in the Butterfly Basics stamp set more than I use the images, they just seem to fit what I need whenever I’m looking. And I just can’t resist adding a flourish when the card feels like it just needs something.

I really do adore this paper. I tried putting some cut out leaves with the bow but it was just so cute on it’s own I didn’t want anything else there. I can’t say this is my favorite color combination but it screams fall to me.

I’m playing along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge today. I stamped the flowers using Staz-on then colored them with the Calypso Coral and Old Olive watercolor pencils then I blended using the blender pens. I also used an Aqua Painter and some watery Soft Sky ink to go around the image to soften it. I attached the water color paper to a piece of Calypso Coral, wrapped the baker’s twine around it and then used dimensionals to add it to the card.
