For the Love of Crafting

Hey Everyone!

I've been playing with the August stamp of the month set from Close To My Heart the past few days and thought I'd share a couple cards I created with it. If you'd like to see where else I used this stamp set, please follow me on Instagram @clabuski. I participated in the index-card-a-day challenge at and posted my daily creations on Instagram. It was so much fun but a bit challenging trying to post every single day for 61 days! Whoa! I did it, though, and am quite proud of myself for doing so!

Anyway, back to my cards.....

For this card, I printed out an art journal page I'd created some time ago onto a 90lb sheet of cardstock to use as the card base. Love doing that! It's a great way to use and share my artwork. I cut the card base out of an image from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, which, unfortunately is no longer available. I also cut it out of black cardstock as well so I could use the cut out butterflies from both cards to use on opposite cards. Make sense?
Here's where you can see that the butterflies had been cut out. I then glued them to the inside of the card so that they'd show through on the outside of the card when completely folded. So cool!
And here's the black card created with the butterflies cut from the first card. LOVE it! I hate to waste any little pieces so any time I can use them on something else, I'm happy!
And once again, you can see through the butterfly cut outs when it's standing up. I also used a piece of my printed art journal page to back the phrase on this card which helped to make it stand out more. I filled in the "CRAFTINESS" letters using the Bashful Shimmer Brush. It added just the right touch to make them pop out.

Here's the stamp set used on both cards. If you're a crafter, you'll love this set!
