Journey Blog Hoppers: Beautiful Wings

Welcome to the Amazing Journey Blog Hoppers Hop! This month’s theme is Beautiful Wings. I'm so happy you're hoppin' along! If your arrived here from Becky's blog, you're on the right track.  If not, that's ok too! Just continue the hop and you'll come full circle!

I was so excited to see that this month's theme was Beautiful Wings. It was actually one of the sets I ordered with my starter kit.
For my main image, I first stamped the detailed butterfly in Black Licorice on my Whip Cream cardstock before cutting with my Journey Oval dies. I then stamped another butterfly, first with Bubble Gum ink and then added the darker accents with Sweet Berry. The outline details of the butterfly are stamped in Black Licorice. I cut out wings from that butterfly and attached it to the oval over the first image.  The three coordinating stamps make it so easy to add color and detail to the butterfly!
The background of this card may be my favorite part! I first embossed the Whip Cream background with the Beach Towel embossing folder.  I then added strip of White Liner tape and added Journey Sparkle Dust!  I love the glittery look.  I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised how well the Journey Sparkle Dust stays on the card!

Thank you for stopping by today, be sure to head to Karen’s blog next.

Best Things in Life are Sweet

I put together this card using some of the items in my latest Fun Stampers Journey order. I love this cupcake stamp!  The frosting portion of the cupcake uses the faux shaving cream technique.  To do this, I inked the solid frosting image with Cool Pool ink and then swirled a smaller solid image across the stamp to give the ink a swirled look.  I LOVE how it turned out.  You can also do this technique using two colors by inking the smaller stamp with a second color first.
