Creative Cardmaker: Adding unexpected dimension to cards...

Good morning! I'm up with another Creative Cardmaker post over at Scrapbook Expo's Weekly Scrapper blog. Today I'm talking about adding unexpected dimension to your stamped backgrounds, so break out your stamps and dies, and let's get started!

I've used Papertrey Ink's Quilted Summer stamp set for the flowers and stems, the Scripted stamp set for the sentiment, and the Life Is Beautiful dies to cut out the butterflies. For inks, I've used True Black, New Leaf, Pure Poppy and Aqua Mist.

Head over to the Weekly Scrapper to see the full tutorial!

Link me up if you give this a try. Would love to see how it inspired you. 
Have a great day!
Danielle

What great cards, Danielle! I happened upon your post this Sunday evening, and immediately PINNED it; then, in a unprecedented move, I grabbed ink, dies, stamps & paper to make my own! This has NEVER happened for me because I’m usually intimidated by the supplies needed, the techniques or something… Thanks for making this one dead simple enough for even me to accomplish and be pleased with the outcome!
