Bella Blvd Illustrated Faith + Cardmaker Blog Hop

Welcome to the Bella Blvd + Cardmaker blog hop! I received some beautiful products from the Illustrated Faith line this time around. The first stamp that caught my eye was the Fly Free Butterfly Stamp with a pretty collection of sentiments and butterflies in different shapes and sizes.


I used white embossing powder and Kuretake Gansai Watercolors to create this soft effect. I love how creamy and vibrant the colors are in this set. The watercolored panels (and white background) were cut with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Dies. This adds a nice, textured stitched detail without the sewing!

This is a version of the same white embossing and watercoloring technique. Here the butterflies are in the background, while the Illustrated Faith Friendship Die Cuts add the title and a layer of pattern to the front of the card.

The heart shapes scattered throughout both cards are made out of enamel and come in a variety of sizes and colors. They are my favorite Illustrated Faith embellishment.


A great big thanks to Bella Blvd and Illustrated Faith for including me on this hop and sharing their design talents! Please visit the Bella Blvd Blog and Store for a chance to win this prize pack:
