Flutterbys

I hope y'all are in the middle of a great week!  I am very happy to say my MISTI arrived today.  This is amazing since I ordered it on Sunday.  Usually shipping to the middle of the Pacific Ocean takes longer than most other places.  I took it for a quick test drive and have to say I am very impressed!  I stamped over the same image 4 times and it remained crisp and clean.  I even took the stamped paper out, showed my hubs and stamped a 5th time with a perfect image.   Typical guy, impressed by how well the new tool works, wonders how it can do that.

Enough about MISTI.  The real reason for this post is to show this card:


and another version


This is one of my new Altenew sets, Painted Butterflies.  It is another multistep stamp set.  These cards went together very quickly.  I can't wait to try these images again using the MISTI.  By the way, I made the enamel dots from Perler beads inspired by this House of Cards blog post.  

I would like to enter the following challenges:

  1. Wow the enamel dots look great I must take a look at this idea as they are quite expensive for what they are. Congrats on the Misti, this is on my wish list :). The cards are beautiful I am really taken with the colour of the butterflies in the second card <3

  2. You have taken just a few little elements and put them together to make the most amazing and elegant cards - I am in awe of these kind of designs :-)
    The homemade enamel dots look fab and I absolutely love the curved die cut along the bottom with the sentiment underneath - so effective!

    Big hugs, Kat xx
