I have been working a lot lately with Close To My  Heart products.  They have some terrific stamps and I love the way the ink, cardstock and patterned paper coordinates.  Makes everything so easy.  This layout features the ‘Brushed’ patterned paper and…

I stamped two images in the background (the small dots are a Hero Arts for Doodlebug Designs stamp, and the script is by Stampin’ Up!). Next, get ready for some inky fun! I took a used dryer sheet and cut it into 2″ squares, and spritzed them with three colours of Clearsnap  Smooch Spritz. Once they were dry, I mod podged them over top of the background I stamped earlier. Once it was dry, I tore off edges and tied some ribbon around it before attaching it to an embossed background. I punched the butterfly out of a double sided adhesive sheet and applied some Clearsnap glitter to it, then attached it to the ribbon. Last step was stamping…
