Fabulous Friday - Some new stuff :-)

Hi everyone.  Yay, its Friday!

My girls had some Amazon gift vouchers for Christmas, and they were struggling to spend them all. So, what is a mother crafter to do, I bought some off them of course (they have put the money in their savings instead) and this is what I ended up with.

1. Fiskars Stamp Press
2. Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink (Blossom Pastels)
3. Wink of Stella
4.  EK Succes Stamp-A-Ma-Jig
5. Ranger Glossy Accents
6. Spellbinders Celebrations - Pierced Ovals
7. Spellbinders Nestabilities - Decorative Labels 8

I did buy the wrong Wink of Stella - I wanted the brush, but these are markers. They will still get used though, and I will get them another time.

Anways, I couldn't wait to have a little play this morning.  I used the Decorative Labels 8 to make up a quick card, along with the wonderful Cheery Lynn Small Exotic Butterflies #2 w/angel wings set.

I do not own many dies, but I have to say I really love these.

I even had a flower left from the other day, when I was using my Perfect Pearls. For the inside I used the same papers and added a little tiny butterfly to the message panel.

Here's a close up.  Don't you love that butterfly.  I added some Flourish with a Bling, Pewter Adhesive pearls and they seem to have taken on the colour of the papers - so look purple.

I inked all the edges of all the papers with the new Colorbox chalk ink.  The papers are from the DCWV The Rustic Stack.  I added some ribbons to the base and top layer too.

A little bit different for me.  What do you think?

I am entering this card in the following challenges.

  20. Beautifully stunning card! I started to say your Wink of Stella doesn't look like mine and then I read you got the wrong one. I haven't used the pen type nor bought one yet but share how you like it...I may need one of those too!
