UTEE Embossed Butterfly Card

Hi, another quick post for today...

Here's a card I made for a friend a little while ago.  I used the No. 6 card from the Sweet Designer Cards and Envelopes SVG Collection. and stamped some swirls onto the top layer of plain cardstock and added some Perfect Pearls for a soft shine.

I then took a chipboard butterfly cut-out from my stash and covered it with a few layers of black UTEE.  I added some perfect pearls onto the hot UTEE and then hit it with the heat gun for a few more seconds before stamping some swirls into it. 

I love this technique - the texture of UTEE is awesome and the shine from the Perfect Pearls is just so pretty.  Hope you like it too...

"Beautiful" Tiger Lilly Gift Bag

Hi there,

Wow, it's been ages since my last post... Things have been crazy around here with building a new house an preparing for our first baby all at the same time.

That said, I always seem to make a bit of time for crafting - not always blogging though... But I am happy to finally share this cute little bag I made for my Fleurette Bloom Design team project. 

The gift bag cutting file is from the New "Peacock Palace" 3D SVG Kit - with Printables from Fleurette Bloom.  Such a fun bag to work with and I just love the Tiger Lilly embellishment. I wanted the bag to be a bit playful so decided to go with patterned paper for the lilly and leaves - rather than trying to make the flower look more realistic.

The digital papers are from Lori Whitlock's Maggie collection and so is the "beautiful" sentiment. The whole project was made using the print and cut feature on my Cameo - which as you know, is one of my favourite things to do.   

Another great file by Fleurette Bloom - super quick to put together and the perfect size for any little gift.

Thanks for stopping by!
