I Miss You So Much

Hi everyone! I'm happy to share my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #42 - Say It In Color! We're being sponsored by the wonderful Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet and SweetStamps! Come play with us! We want to see your sentiment stamped, printed or die cut in a color other than black and white! Another easy and fun challenge! ;)

I used a stamp from SweetStamps Fanciful Butterflies set along with some gorgeous and very vibrant double-sided papers for my swing card. This was so much fun - I used the Sizzix Regal Flip-Its die set. It's another one of those sets with an amazing 10 dies in it! Love, love, love!

I stamped the butterfly on 40# vellum in Versamark and heat embossed it with SweetStamps white embossing powder. I then colored the back side with three of the colors in the papers - orange, purple and pink. I also added some gold wire antennae.

After layering some pretty die cuts created with other dies in this set, I stamped the sentiment on both sides of the swing mechanism in Memento Grape Jelly ink. I added some of my new fav Twinkle Goosebumps gemstones (in orange) in the upper left corner.

I didn't use many embellishments on this card at all... I thought they'd get lost in this vibrant paper! LOL! I did add some red Dot Sparklers down the right side on a pretty border die cut created with another die in this set, along with some gorgeous gold cording. That's it!

Proud to enter my 'missing you' card into the following challenges:

  • GKD Wild Lilac cardstock
  • K & Co. Que Sera Sera double-sided paper
  • Sizzix Regal Flip-Its die set
  • Butterfly from the SweetStamps Fanciful Butterflies stamp set
  • Versamark
  • SweetStamps white fine detail embossing powder
  • Copics: YR18, R85, BV08
  • Sentiment from the GKD Let's Talk stamp set
  • Memento Grape Jelly ink
  • Stampendous Red Dot Sparklers
  • GKD gold cording
