Technique Tuesday / Ali Edwards Inspiration Week - Day Five

Hey everyone!!

I can't believe we are already at day five of Technique Tuesday / Ali Edwards Inspiration week! I have had so much fun creating and sharing projects with all of you with a product that I really love! I highly recommend adding some of Ali's stamps to your crafting supplies if you don't already have them.
And I really want to say thank you once again for joining me here all week and leaving such nice comments. Hopefully I have inspired you to get out those stamps and get inky!
And I figured the best way to end the week was to create a card to say thank you to all of you for hanging out with me this week.

Thank You

For this card I used the Favorite Memories and A Million and One stamp sets.
It's hard to see in the photo, but I repeatedly stamped the thank you stamp with aqua ink on the label diecut for a subtle tone on tone effect. I then stamped the same thank you sentiment on beige patterned paper and cut it into a banner.
I diecut two butterflies from sticky back canvas and stamped a definition stamp from the Favorite Memories set with black ink until the entire butterflies were covered. I then added a touch of victorian velvet distress ink and a lot of vintage photo distress ink to the butterflies. I adhered one butterfly directly to the card and added the other one on top with pop dots under the wings for dimension. I glued twine to the butterfly center with glossy accents to create the antennae and added pearls on top. I love using stamps to give simple diecuts a whole new look. And stamping it on the canvas gave the butterflies such great texture.

To end the week I want to send a big thank you to Technique Tuesday and Ali Edwards for joining forces and making a product that I expect I'll use on my creative projects for years to come. I am really looking forward to seeing what new sets will be coming in the future! :-)

And don't forget about the giveaway! (today is the last day to enter)

Simply leave a comment on this post (and every post this week for more chances to win!!) and I'll draw a name after 11:59pm tonight for someone to win a TT/AE stamp set of their choice!! I'll post the winner here tomorrow!

Thanks again!
Steph :-)
