On the Edge

I've seen Tim Holtz's 'On the Edge' dies in our local craft stores but had no idea how to use them. I attended Scrapbook Expo in July (Duluth, GA) and saw examples and purchased the 'Butterflies' On the Edge die. I used the die to make this easel card.

Triple Time Stamping

Youtube is wonderful! I love searching for new techniques and I saw this technique demonstrated by and Frenchie made a couple of cards in different colors and Dawn made hers using neutrals. I wanted to make a 'Shaped Card' (demonstrated by Beate on SCS) so I am using Spellbinder dies to make the first card. The second card is made using measurements listed by Frenchie and Dawn on their Youtube videos.

I added two butterflies to meet today's 'Free For All - Seeing Double' challenge on SCS
Ink: Elegant Eggplant
Card stock: Elegant Eggplant; Very Vanilla
Stamps: Field Flowers; Element of Style; Teeny Tiny Wishes; Touch of Nature
Ribbon: Very Vanilla

I cased Frenchie's card but used different stamps. After seeing her card, I will definitely order the stamp set she used.
Ink: Crumb Cake; Early Espresso
Card Stock: Very Vanilla; Early Espresso

This card is for our daughter who is currently deployed to Saudi Arabia. DH and I hope it will give her some idea of how much we miss and love her as well as how proud we are of her. Please continue to pray for all the brave women and men serving in our armed forces.
I used today's sketch challenge at SCS (SC392) as the incentive to make the card for her. This is the inside of her card.
