I am hopping today with two cards using the new Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps set Garden Whimsy and on the first card I also used the Puffy Clouds Stencil. I love that SNSS is now carrying their own stencils!

For the background on my first card, I started with a piece of Distress Watercolor cardstock. I used regular distress inks and a piece of acetate to make the “splatters”, then sponged some pink Oxide ink over the cloud stencil. The butterfly was heat embossed with gold onto pink paper and pink ink was blended on the sides of the wings. I added some accents with a white pen.

I repeatedly stamped the ladybugs onto a red panel for my second card and then stamped again onto a white circle to layer over top of one. The sentiment was heat embossed with gold powder.

Have a great day and thanks for hopping!
