Melinda Spinks shares 2 incredible cards on the blog today!

Vellum and sequins are most definitely 'on trend' at the moment and I'm loving their revival. So much so that I couldn't help myself and created a sequin background for this triple layer of butterflies.

Thanks! Card

I stamped three images of different size butterflies from the Jillibean Soup - Chilled Cucumber Soup Stamp Set in opaque white and heat embossed using a frosted powder.

I would have stitched the layers together however I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with my sewing machine so I used glue instead before folding the wings up to give more dimension to the card.

I can't go passed rainbow colour combinations and have recently upgraded my ink collection with just about every colour necessary. However, there's not a rainbow in sight... just lots of pie!

Cutie Pie Card

I stamped the little pies from the Echo Park - Sweet Girl clear stamp collection and added a cherry on top using colour co-ordinated pearls.

  1. Love both of these cards. Never thought of sequins as a background but I have to try this.
