Happy Monday! 

Tesa here to share a couple of cards. First up is a CAS card. I made a center piece out of three stamps: Yellow Foxtail, Card Labels and Small Trailing Butterflies.

I love the Small Trailing Butterflies, I tend to use it over and over again. This time I stamped only the smallest one and cut out and the size was perfect for the Yellow Foxtail image.

I've been making cards for 6 years, and used heat embossing almost as long. And it still feels like a magic moment when the embossing powder melts and transforms to that beautiful hard glossy surface... I loooove heat embossing! :)

Next up is a splatter card. I got me some lovely mists...

Love you splatter  1

The stamps used on this card are Love from Fabulous Phrases and the winged heart from the Steampunk set.

 The Winged heart is stamped three times, first on the panel, then twice on white cardstock and cut out and layered. The heart piece got a thick coat of Patriotic Red Glitter. It glimmers beautifully.

Thanks for stopping by!
