Flutter By Wednesday #196

Happy Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by to peek at my card for this week’s Flutter By Wednesday challenge! This week, the Flutter By team is participating in a card drive for Butterfly Kisses, so your challenge is to make a card for a child with the theme of get well/thinking of you/keep fighting!
Here’s my card:
Supplies: patterned paper (Crate Paper – Neighborhood), image stamp (Stamping Anya – The Greeting Farm), sentiment stamp (aMuse Studio – Contemporary Greetings), ribbon, heart brad (Queen & Co.), glitter brads, watermark ink, opaque white embossing powder, opaque white marker, foam tape, Copic markers, card base.
The image stamp that I used had a saying on the t-shirt, but I masked the words out with painter’s tape. (It took a few tries to get it right — the first time I stamped, I forgot to take off the masking tape!) Then, I added a heart-shaped brad over the heart on the design.

If you’d like to send your card to Butterfly Kisses, you can find all of the guidelines and the mailing address HERE. Each card received is placed in a customized gift basket for a terminally ill child and their siblings.

Hope to see your card at the Flutter By Wednesday blog! And, be sure to stop by the other Flutter By DT Members’ blogs to see what they created for this week’s challenge: Danni, Anna, Harriet, Karen, Kristie, Leanne, Lynette, Mary, Michelle VP, Michelle, Nancy, and Peggy!

Flutter By Wednesday #190 – Anything with Wings

Happy Wednesday and welcome back for the latest challenge at Flutter By Wednesday! Back by popular demand, this week’s challenge is open to anything with wings!

So feel free to make a card with bees, bats, birds, airplanes, dragonflies, or anything else you can think of that has wings! Normally, the challenge is limited to angels, fairies or butterflies (and we’ll go back to that requirement next week), but not this time!

Here’s my card, which is also the one I gave my dear husband for Valentine’s Day:

Supplies: Image and sentiment stamps (Kraftin’ Kimmie – Batty Princess), paper (Basic Grey – Kissing Booth), ink (Tsukineko; Stampin’ Up – Chocolate Chip), lace (KaiserCraft), Spellbinders oval die, Sizzix embossing folder, opaque white marker, Copic markers, brads, foam tape, heart-shaped rhinestone.
Normally, Batty Princess is more of a Halloween-themed stamp, but since Scott & I share a similar sense of humor, I thought he’d get a kick out of it…and he did! The first thing he noticed was the little bat on the left with the sparkly heart!

And he made me a Valentine’s Day card! It came in three parts…here they are all together:

And here are the three different layers:

(I think you can click on the pictures to make them bigger.)
It’s so sweet that he made the card for me…I’m so used to making them for other people, and the fact that he surprised me by making one is extra special! It’s the first time he’s made one for me. He started making it at work today, and his fellow soldiers gave him design suggestions, like making a border with staples or loading it up with glitter, but he kept it simple…and I’m happy about that!
