Ladybugs and Butterflies

Hello everyone,
I am finally uploading some of the cards made recently.
My stamping friend Taryn (SCS: littledadybug3)
was recently hosting a ladubug/btterfly/dragonfly swap (s).
I took two spots in ladybugs and butterflies cards and here are the results:

For my butterfly cards I used a new (to me) tecnique- thanks to the link
my friend Kathy sent me via e-mail....(she does ENABLES me a LOT with the many
beautiful cards she pins....and now she's got ME hooked on pinning too!!
Kathy is ALL your I DO love this tecnique but I did tweeked it
a wee bit: instead of using sponges I dusted off my brayer and it worked just fine :o)
See the original 'Double Sponging Tecnique' tutorial here:


I absolutly LOVE the results obtained with this fun to do tecnique...
thanks so much for sharing that link Kathy ♥

For this card I used:Stamping Up Night of Navy c/s ,and organdy ribbon,
glitter dust, 'jewels' , MS border punch, clear embossing powder,brayer,lime green c/s (from Michaels).
Inks: Night of Navy,So Saffron,Bashful Blue, Gren Galore,Old Olive.
Stamps: Florentine Scroll Background (from Hero Arts)
Large butterfly is from clear set from Inkadinkado
Sentiment ( embossed inside) says:
 'Thank you for touching my life with your caring"
Tecnique: wet embossing, brayering

And here's my other cards...
more simplistic yet fun and colorful on its own merit...
The added cut out white die on the red c/s really makes it pop ♥

  For my ladybug cards I used a SU wheel, MS border punch, a bit of glitter ,
SU markers , real red c/s and yo yo yellow c/s ,
Memory box die (Fauntleroy Crest) and sentiment from Tailored Tins Paper Salon

Here you go folks...I hope Taryn's and her peeps like them....
Hubby is calling...dinner is ready....I am
