Count the Moments

Hi, it's Beate. Thanks to Taylor and Korin for inviting me to be the Guest Designer for October. I'm very excited to be here.

For my first sample I chose a card made for a Hope You Can Cling To Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I was the hostess and my challenge was to create a circle card.


The card base was cut with the largest of the Large Scallop Circle Nestabilities dies out of Pink Pirouette cardstock. Patterned paper from the Echo Park Victoria Garden pack was cut with a Classic Circle Nestabilities die. Before it was stitched to a slightly bigger white cardstock circle, May Arts Crochet Lace was taped under the horizontal layer.

The sentiment is from Everyday Miracles. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. The sentiment was cut and embossed with a Classic Circle Nestabilities die. One of the butterflies from the same set was partially stamped on the sentiment circle in second generation Shabby Shutter Distress ink. The sentiment was adhered to a slightly bigger pink layer cut with one of the Large Scallop Circle Nestabilities dies.

The butterfly that was used in the sentiment panel was stamped again on a piece of Victoria Garden Echo Park paper with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. The butterfly was cut out and colored with Copic Markers (RV10, R43, R46 and E27). It was adhered to the lower left of the sentiment panel. Stardust Stickles was added to the darker parts of the wings and Glossy Accents to the body.

Red Kaisercraft Pearls finish off the card! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
