Autumn Colors

Good Morning All,

Well I am a new Designer here on Crafty Card Gallery . I am so happy to be a part of a great team and a fantastic site that brings tons of Ideas and Inspiration to our viewers. Thank you Jennifer for having me on board and letting me be a part of your wonderful design team. 😀

A little bit about me I have been crafting for over 20 years. I am married and have have 4 gorgeous daughters and have one granddaughter. : )  I am a dog lover and have 3, plus grandpup. (lol)
As for crafting I like card making, making mini albums, doing altered items, home decor and many other things. I hope you all enjoy my creations and find inspiration.

For my first project I made a card using wonderful fall colors, the them this month is Butterflies but I added a tree too. The little butterfly was from a facebook friend that I did a butterfly swap with this summer. She made several butterflies and then I made some for her. I thought this little yellow one was perfect for today’s card. Hope you like my card. I wanted something simple but soft.

First I stamped my sentiment then used versa mark for the tree image then used copper embossing powder on the tree image. After that I used my TH distress inks over the images. Distressed the edges of the stamped images. Dry embossed the card base.

Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you found inspiration from my card if you are working on Thanksgiving cards or projects. 
Have a great crafty weekend.

Hi everyone,  I’m Christina.

Today I’m going to share a card I created for this months card challenge. Theme: Butterflies.
What I love most about butterflies is their unique patterns and colors on their wings.

Here’s my card -( for the background, I used alcohol inks in various colors, with gold metallic) I also used the Tim Holtz texture hammer on the large brads for an aged look with the word band – Authentic –

handmade mixed media butterfly card
Take a look, notice how the wings are popped up, they add dimension and create a sense of movement.
For an added touch I used spiral clips and unwound them to create antennas for the butterfly.
I was inspired by the recent tag I created from Tim Holtz blog. The techniques used on this tag and my card are really cool and a lot of fun to play with. Find out how I created my card here.
Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!
