Welcome to the Design D.I.V.A.S. Oldies but Goodies Blog Hop
Hello and Welcome! Design D.I.V.A.S. on Facebook is a private group of crafters who love to share fun and inspiration! Our Oldies but Goodies Blog Hop was created for us to share some of our "back of the drawer or cabinet goodies" with everyone! We are to use craft items that have not seen the light for six months or more.
If you have arrived here from Sharri Seffens blog, you are in the right place! This stop is the last one on the hop! If you would like to go to the beginning of the hop, please start with Brenda
I didn't have to dig too deep to find items that meet the criteria for this hop! I went "back in the day" with some tools and stamps that have sadly been neglected for more than several months.
I started with a cranberry cardstock base. I then added borders cut with the Cuttlebug Floral Borders die. The tiny blossom accents were also cut with this die. Next came the inside corner accents cut with the CB Vintage die. I distressed all the edges of the card, rounded the outside corners and sponged them with Color Box Chalk Warm Violet ink. The sentiment layer was stamped and then cut with Spellbinders Label One die. I sponged the edges here, too. The panel was then adhered with dimensionals. Next, I added the multicolored butterfly, cut with the Sizzlits Butterfly Tag die and mounted it with glue dots. As a final accent, I edged the sentiment panel and the butterfly with DecoArt Twinkles Glitter Paint. I also added the glitter paint to the flower blossoms.
This is just a fun card to send to a good friend recovering from surgery. She is a very dainty lady and I thought the borders and bling would be perfect for her.
I hope you have enjoyed your stop here today! I am the last blog to visit on this month's hop. If you have not visited all the members in the hop, please start with Brenda's blog and soak in all the wonderful talent and inspiration these ladies offer! We will be doing this hop again the third Wednesday of each month so be sure to join us!
You are always welcome to drop by here whenever you can! You may start out as a newcomer to my blog, but I hope you will feel like a friend when you leave! For those of you who visit often, you bless me with the gift of your time and friendship!
Hope everyone has an awesome day and, as always, I send...
Blessings to you,
