MSTC35 Beautiful Kindness

Stamps: Verve Beautiful Kindness
Paper: Maine Blueberry DSP, Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, Whisper White, Bashful Blue
Ink: Old Olive
Accessories: Silver Brads, Ticket Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, White Signo Pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Glue, Piercer
Techniques: Faux Stitching

You'll see a similar color pattern this week, as I feature the cards I'm giving in a set this weekend. I think the set I'd originally planned for my Aunt will be going to my Grandma and my Aunt will get these....I think! LOL Maybe I'll just toss them all at this rate =)

I used
Mercy's Sketch MSTC35 and I think the faux stitching worked out alright, even being totally terrified of it initially! =)
I added some glue and Dazzling Diamonds to give my butterfly some extra sparkle and gave her a little dimension.

I've now got all the supplies to make a lightbox. Wish me luck! (Well, I suspect MrP will be doing a lot of it since I'm a little terrified and he's more construction-ally inclined. Afterall, he does work for a construction company. HAHAHA!)


  1. Your faux stitching looks great! Love the blue and green together and the wonderful sentiment.

  2. Hi Tanny!
    Your card came out great....love the sketch too! I'll probably use this one for tomorrow's post....fab work & tfs!!!

    Nice to be able to *see* your blog again LOL!!

  3. Fabulous faux stitching! I had to look really, really close! It still looks real! Are you making a light box for photography or to light things up? Post a picture when you're done...I'd love to see it :)

  4. Beautiful card! I can see why you love Verve stamps so much.
    I too had to look really closely at the stitching and if you hadn't said it was faux I never would have guessed. You did a great job!
    Have a wonderful day.

  5. Another piece of art from a great artist!!
    I left you a new blog award at my blog.
