CAS Mix Up Friends Celebrating Loll's Birthday

CAS Mix Up Friends past and present are Celebrating Loll's...Stamping with Loll 
June 27th Birthday🎂💕

We would love to have you join the fun even if your card and/or Birthday Wishes
might be a bit belated😊

Dear sweet Lolly.. sending you virtual wild azalea flowers and your IRL card that I
hope you have already received💕

Your birthday card close up made with love💖

I have been saving this wonderful TCW "Maidenhair Fern" Stencil that Lolly
gave me for her special Birthday card:-)  Loll recently gave stencils to all her CAS Mix Up Girls...
because that is what she does😊..always a very generous friend with her gifts and 
her precious gifts of time😇

I stenciled the maidenhair image using Distress Oxide Salvaged Patina and 
Cracked Pistachio, which I applied using make up brushes.
Then die cut the Strathmore Mixed Media layer with Penny Black
"Leaf Stitched Frames Dies"

Then stamped the Penny Black "Special Sentiments" sentiment with Versamark
and heat embossed with Rangers Distress Embossing Glaze Cracked Pistachio.

Next added the Memory Box "Dreamy Butterfly" Die cut from foil, which was a gift
by another dear friend,  Bonnie.  I added a white butterfly 1st then popped up the turquoise
 butterfly with dimensionals and the gold foil antennae,  which I attached with Connect Glue.
Attached layer to SU Basic White 100# card base and Done!

I was very happy with Lolly's card and think she will like it too😊

We all love you my friend and are wishing you a very special Birthday 
filled with Love from your crafty friends💕

Love and Hugs..

  1. Nancy, this is so beautiful! I'm so happy to find a sweet flutterby on your card - and that gorgeous Maidenhair Fern! SO wonderful - as is Loll!

  2. Gosh, I love that butterfly! I have the same stencil and what a pretty way to use it with the butterfly and leaf frame. I'm sure Loll was very pleased with this!

  3. Your butterfly is gorgeous flitting amongst the fern, Nancy.

  4. Just gorgeous and I love how you have used the fern stencil. Loll gave me that one too. I have used it several times already, which is a very good sign for something new in my stash xx

  5. I have received this beautiful card and look at it every day to admire your talent, Nancy. I love the stenciled fern background and your gorgeous foil butterfly. Bonnie is generous with her sharing of these lovely butterflies and I feel special that you've used one on my card. Thank you for the lovely post as well to help me celebrate my birthday, dear friend. Love, Lolly

  9. This is gorgeous, Nancy! The shiny butterfly looks so good on the beautifully stenciled fern. The color matching heat-embossed sentiment is the perfect touch.
