Bliss, Butterfly, Use them or Lose them

Use them or lose them #9: Bliss

So this year I have decided to challenge myself to make a set of cards, scrapbook page or journal layout using each of my stamp sets as I know I have some I rarely use!

This week I grabbed the Bliss stamp set and decided to have a go with this. I got this set in saleabration about 6 years ago… and it was all about the flourish for me… and I still love this flourish but don’t use it very often these days.

I decided to make a couple of cards using up some patterned paper from the stash that has a lovely satin finish to it. I took some creamy yellow cardstock from the stash and cut a square and stamped the flourish in the centre in black. On another piece of the same cream cardstock I also stamped two butterflies in Fired Brick distress ink and added some clear embossing powder to them. Once heated this gave them a lovely shine.

I punched out the butterfly and edged it with a su marker then added it with a glue dot into the centre of the flourish. I then edged that panel with the same red, mounted it onto the dsp and then a panel of red cardstock to finish it off.

I made two cards and also decorated the envelopes…
The final touch was to add some dots of stickles…

Love how this came out. Love this flourish too. Not sure I can part with this stamp set yet. Wonder if I can make something else with it before the end of the week so that it can stay!

Happy crafting!
