Glittery Butterflies

Well the "Open Rose" stuff is going well! I finally found a way to explain them that makes sense. :) I should have it all together in a few more days. 

In the meantime, I wanted to share a couple of glittery butterfly cards I made last week. I got some glitter embossing powder and, oh my, did I have FUN!

I also got some DCWV Mariposa patterned paper. It was so pretty and had such great gold foil images on it that I just had to dress up the rest of the card to go along with it.  :)   

I used a black card base and cut a turquoise blue mat. I stamped some flourishes on the mat and embossed them with gold glitter embossing powder. I used one of the sheets from the Mariposa mat stack. I added part of a gold doily and  a short strip of my new diamond edged design cut file that I cut in black. I cut one of my detailed butterflies and embossed it with turquoise embossing glitter. (It is sooo shiny in person)

If you would like to see a video of me making this card, please leave a comment.

The papers were so pretty, I could not stop there. I had to make a few more. (Really...I HAD to... LOL)

More glittery butterflies on a dry embossed shape that I inked with gold chalk ink.

This paper was so pretty that I did not add anything. (These 2 cards were made using one of the 12 by 12 Mariposa papers that I cut down. )

I can tell that I am going to love this paper pack!
(Yes, I know it has been around for a while, but it is new to me :)

Hope you enjoy these. I will have more pretty stuff soon :) I think I have a new obsession with these glitter embossing powders. LOL
