Hello friends! Here's another card I copied from Pinterest...really love this one! I used the Fun Stamper's Journey Newsprint stamp for my background again. Stampin Up's Butterfly Basics for the rest. Colors are Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe. I used a watercolor brush to color the flowers.
Happy April everyone! March sure seemed to fly by, and it's time once again for a new challenge at House of Cards. You can use the colors above and/or script for your creations this time...have fun with it! Here's what I made:
I made the background by covering some cardstock with a script washi tape, then using a die to cut out the leaves. So easy to do, and a fun and different technique using washi tape. What do you think?
Time for a new challenge over at House of Cards!
I wanted to use something a little fancier than just a regular straight stitch to really showcase the theme.
I think it adds a lot of interest.
I colored the stamped butterflies with Distress markers, then added Glossy Accents to the bodies. They are popped up with foam tape for a bit of dimension. I had such fun putting together this whole set in a rainbow of colors!
So...how will you be inspired to add sewing to your project?
This is a CASE of a card I found on Pinterest using SU's Butterfly Basics set.
Reveal day for the Card Chain Challenge!
I get a kick out of the text print paper- it's from Ann of Green Gables!
This was the first chance I had to play with my Stampin Up Butterfly Basics set.
Hello again card making friends! Welcome back! I've got a fun card full of texture for the Moving Along with the Times challenge today. I was playing with some new goodies on this one. I found this background embossing folder at Jo Ann's for 97 cents. I love it! It reminds me of quilting...my other favorite pastime. The embossed doily is also new. It's a Spellbinders folder, but then I cut it out.
I coated the butterfly with stickles for a bit of shine. Thanks for popping by!
