Its been another busy week and although school is back I dont seem to have found much time to craft, but  I plan to get my projects planned and up to date for my classes over the weekend.  I have a special card that I must make this weekend - my "baby" will be 5 next week -  how did that happen????

I want to try out some new techniques, so this is my first "vintage/distressed" card using the FREE stamp set Bliss. Details of how to get your FREE stamps are here.

I think this is one of my favourite colour schemes - Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, so you will no doubt be seeing more cards in these colours, they are perfect for any occaion!!  I have stamped the butterfly on a peice of Baja Breeze 12x12 designer paper and spritzed the paper, tearing it at the corner and inking the edges with Early espresso ink, the flowers were stamped onto Very Vanilla and cut out with a little Dazzling Daimonds in the centres.  I stamped the beautiful filigree stamp in Crumb cake ink on to Crumb Cake card, I used distressing tool arund the edges inking them with more Early Espresso ink. Both of these layers have been spritzed with the cool spritzing tool and the marker pen to match - well I did say I would spritz anything if it kept still long enough!!!  I stamped Bliss in Early Espresso and inke the edges, addin some narrow ribbon and a cut out butterfly stamped in Baja Breeze, with some of the gorgeous self adhesive pearls for the body!!!

Look out for details of my Bundle offer with everything you need to create cards like this one.  It will include a FREE  Bliss stamp set in a choice of wood or clear mount.

Hope you like it, I would love to know what you think???  Have a lovely weekend and as the weather forecast is cold, its the perfect excuse to stay inside and craft!!!
