    Delicate Wings PP Possibilities Blog Hop

    Delicate Wings PP Possibilities Blog Hop Welcome hoppers!! Today for the Delicate Wings PP Possibilities Blog Hop I wanted to make a card that used mostly stuff from the box. I only added Lost Lagoon and Basic Beige cardstock. Using not only the envelope flap for the pocket… the champagne foil for the deckled circle. I did fussy cut the butterfly body to separate it from the layer piece. Trim off the sentiment and use that on the inside. Why?? Because there is a TON going on for the front, right?? Back to the butterfly. I also used one of the loose butterflies for a backer on the BIG one.…

    Memorable Meadows PP Possibilities 2024 Hop

    Memorable Meadows PP Possibilities 2024 Hop I am super excited to be doing the Memorable Meadows PP Possibilities 2024 Hop this month. I have a simple but pretty slimline card idea for you this time. When I saw the 4 1/4 x 11 cardbase, this was the first thing that I thought of. I used Balmy Blue and Fresh Freesia for the layers. Just use your bone folder to reduce the score in the middle. I left the wood piece un-colored. Plus I snapped it at the top three leaves. I felt that the whole piece was just too big. Adding in the deckled circle and fussy cutting of the…
