Blogger Maureen Hayes said...
I really loved you r project over at Paper Crafter's Library. The whole thing is beautiful, but I was especially taken with how you used two colors on the butterflies and thought it really gave them great dimension and popped them off the page!! I will be following you r blog now because I can't wait to see what you create next!

I would LOVE to win a membership to PCL. I am just getting started with paper and other types of crafting and I could really use the video tutorials to learn about different types of crafting and techniques. I am impressed with how clearly and easily they teach on their videos and have wanted to join but unable to afford it due to serious illness and financial difficulties. I hope I will win the membership, but in any case, I am so glad to have found your work.

Thanks so much for sharing with us,
Maureen

Hi! I was asked by Suzy West to do a special "WOW" project for Paper Crafter's Library. I was honored to do it. I wanted to feature a technique for embossing so I thought I would share one of my favorite things to do with the Susy West WOW embossing powders and stamps. 

Please go by and check it out. You can also win a 3 month subscription!!! I will choose a winner from the comments on this post on Friday. I will post the winner at 4 pm Friday also. So, to be eligible don't forget to leave a comment here and visit the Paper Crafter's Library blog!!!

A Bit About Paper Crafter’s Library
The world of paper crafting is HUGE! Whether you are a beginner, or you’ve been creating for years, the sheer number of different products, tools, techniques and project ideas can be overwhelming.After spending 6 years helping thousands of paper crafters around the world become more successful in the creative space through her series of kits, digital tutorials and online classes, Andrea Walford began looking for a new approach to education. In 2011 she launched Paper Crafter’s Library – the first, and still to this day, only website that provides an all-in-one learning solution for paper crafters. With almost 800 videos currently in their library and 4-5 new videos added each week, Paper Crafter’s Library offers comprehensive training on products, tools, techniques, and project ideas. From beginner through to advanced, whether your interest is in stamping, card making, scrapbooking, creating 3D items or altered art – you’ll find all the resources you need to navigate the world of paper crafting in ONE place, organized and indexed so that it’s quick and easy to find.


Here are a few sneeks of my project that you can find TODAY over at the Paper Crafter's Library blog.


On this, you can see the butterflies. For these, I use two different colors, I use one color for the solid outline stamp, and then a different color for the center that I choose. I cut them both out and layer them together, Then I add some pearls for the body of the butterfly. I curl the wings on the top layer slightly.

Here you can see the detail on the butterfly and on the title letters. Also one of the little leaves.
 

This is just another view of the butterfly, shows the dimension of them. These are so easy, and so much fun to play with the different color combos!!!
