Stretch Your Stamps 2 Day 3

Welcome! After a busy week, I am playing catch-up with Stretch Your Stamps 2. This card was created after watching lessons for Day 3.

Debby Hughes provided a video that showed how to create a card with "subliminal" messages. I got to bring out my heart stencil and use some embossing paste with it to create the heart background. Next I die cut the butterfly and stamped it with parts of the sentiment in VersaMark. I heat embossed it before distressing with Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Cantaloupe.  Finally, I added the sentiment (Simply Fabulous Sayings from My Favorite Things) in black.

I am partially pleased with this card--I still feel like it needs something. Perhaps some bling would help? Don't know. I need to think about that.

Thanks for stopping by today! I appreciate your comments and visits very much, and I hope to see you again real soon ~


  1. LOVE that textured background, and the color you chose for the heart. What a great technique - I don't think this card needs another thing. It's beautiful just as is!

  2. Beautiful design. Love that butterfly with IS subliminal. HA. Excellent job!


I'd love to read your comments!
