More butterfly dreams

Hello everyone! Still in puppy training mode over here. So I thought I'd show you a card I made a few weeks ago for a Spring Swap over on the PTI forum.

I just love these two sets! I cannot get enough of Butterfly Dreams and Floral Fusion. So my apologies if you are sick of seeing them on here. ;) I also used two of my favorite colors, Hawaiian Shores & Summer Sunrise. I created the top portion of the card with one of the tiny stamps in Floral Fusion. I'm not very good at creating my own patterned paper look, but I'm okay with this one. I'm hoping to sneak away into my craft room this weekend. So hopefully I will have something to post here very soon. Have a great weekend! :)

Stamps: PTI Butterfly Dreams & Floral Fusion
Ink: PTI Hawaiian Shores, Dark Chocolate & Summer Sunrise, Versafine Black
Paper: PTI Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Summer Sunrise, Vintage Cream
Misc: Glitter, EK Success Scallop Punch, PTI Summer Sunrise Grosgrain Ribbon, flat back pearls

PTI April Blog Hop: Floral Fusion Candle

This month's challenge was to use tissue paper. Today I really, really wanted to make one of those cute poofy tissue paper flowers but time ran out. I decided to make a candle and card gift set.

Here is the tissue paper all stamped and ready to be applied to the candle:

I put the tissue paper to the candle, laid some wax paper on top, then used the heat gun.

(It's not perfect, but it's all I could manage with 2 kids crafting with me and a puppy biting at my toes.)

I made a matching 4x4 card to go with my gift:

And here is the matching gift set together:

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy the rest of the blog hop!
