Okay, well I have a couple cards to share with you today! I have LOVED this month's releases so I've been a busy girl in the craft room!
First up is a card using Always on my Mind:
The fonts Julee used this month are SO FUN! Seriously, isn't that the coolest font? Love it! The papers are all by PTI (Hawaiian Shores, Pure Poppy, White, Beautiful Blooms dp). I stamped the sentiment on a luggage tag I got from Mish Mash's Etsy store. I adhered some dp to the tag to break up the white space, we all know I have a problem with too much white space, lol! Love this sentiment, it's perfect for an every day "thinking of you" card to a sympathy card if you need one. I also did a little faux stitching on this one because I'd already added my ribbon before I realized I wanted to sew on it! Oh well, faux to the rescue!
Next up is one of my favorite cards from this release, using Blue Skies:
These butterflies are seriously the most beautiful butterflies ever. They're flowy and gorgeous! AND fun to color:) I put the small and large butterfly stamps on a block and stamped them together in Espresso ink and then colored them in with my Copics. The paper is from Thrift Shop by OA. The cardstock is Kiwi Kiss (SU!) and Vintage Cream (PTI).
Okay, one last card for today, using this weeks' SFYTT by Jen! For this card, I used my favorite stamp set of the release, American Hero!
Oh yeah, and Cheeky Mate by TGF! LOL! I just thought they'd go together SUPER cute and they do:) I colored her up to be in Air Force blues, because, well...I'm in the Air Force and it only seemed right! Don't you love the sentiment? Those stars are in American Hero as well. There are three star designs and they're ALL gorgeous!
Check out the rest of the SFYTT Sistah's below:
