Bold Floating Butterflies

Happy Friyay Everyone!

The theme of the Memory Box / Outside the Box challenge is ‘pretty purples’ and I decided to focus on purple butterflies. I created a inky background panel using some Ken Oliver Metallic Colour Bursts and some Cosmic Shimmer powder. Once dry, I cut it with the Floating Butterflies background die and adhered the Floating Butterflies frame die on top. I then stuck the Beautiful Jasper Leave die to my card base and used sticky fixers for the butterfly panel. I then added a silver Impress Card & Crafts die cut sentiment. I felt the card still needed a little bit more, so I cut out two of the smallest Memory Box Pinpoint Butterfly Trio dies to finish it off.

Valentine Collage

Hello again everyone!

I’m back and playing along with a few challenges with this card today – I used the sketch from the Global Design Project challenge and was inspired by the inspiration photo at the Time Out Challenge. I’m also linking this up to the Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge where the theme is ‘love is in the air’.

I used some of my My Mind’s Eye patterned paper mountain for the centre strip and adhered a heart die from Impression Obsession. I was really drawn to the green pops of colour in the Time Out inspiration photo and so I incorporated that into my card by cutting some foliage and it adhering it behind some very old Simon Says Stamp/Kelly Purkey die cut hearts. Finally I added a sentiment by Hero Arts. They’ve actually just released a clear set with this sentiment/font but I went old school and dug out my wood mounted stamp!

Valentines Hearts

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge (hearts) and a new to me challenge, the Cut it Up challenge (all you need is love).

I cut the Simon Says Stamp Stacked Hearts die twice and adhered them to my card base. I then cut the Memory Box Clementine Heart and coloured it with distress inks. I adhered the heart to a ‘plain’ heart which I’d also dusted with distress ink. I stamped a Taylored Expressions sentiment in the centre and added a few gems to complete my card.

Hello Prima Flowers

Hi everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I went retro today and paired an older Memory Box die (Jasper Leaves) with some of my gazillion Prima Flowers. Please tell me I’m not the only crafter who still has a ton of these!

I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp and a few Nuvo drops to complete my card.

Happy Butterfly Thoughts

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown! They have another fabulous colour palette this week – pale pink, blue and grey!

I created a blended panel using Stormy Sky, Spun Sugar and Hickory smoke distress ink and then cut it using the Memory Box drifting butterflies background die.

I adhered the die cut to a card base and added a Mama Elephant sentiment and a few thousand Nuvo drops to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
