Butterfly Dreams

I’m back again with another challenge card.

I hope you are enjoying my more regular posting and I hope’  that I keep it up.

Today’s card is for 2 challenges.

I’ve combined a Colour Challenge from Come and Get It

Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight

with  Sketch Challenge #93 from Sketchbook Saturday Challenge

This is what I came up with…..

I love how the butterfly turned out. Of course a slightly larger one with a matching punch would be even better…

I used the Thumping technique to colour the butterfly using Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight markers. I love the mottled effect it gave.

Here’s another angle.

Supplies: (All SU unless specified otherwise)
Stamp sets: Papillon Potpourri, Loving Thoughts
Card: Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, In Colour 2011-2103 Pattern Stack (Pool Party DSP)
Ink: Pool Party Inkpad, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight & Pool Party Stampin’ Write Markers
Accessories: White Tea Lace Paper Doilies, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Pearls (Non-SU)

I hope you like my card I’ve shared with you today. Hopefully I’ll be back tomorrow with another.

Secret Elements

My creation today is for the Dynamic Duos Challenge #46.

I’ve chosen the combination of Primrose Petals with Summer Starfruit and used Whisper White as my neutral.

The stamp set I selected is a recent purchase from the current Seasonal Catalogue called ‘Secret Garden’. I love that there is a coordinating set of Framelits for this set.

Here’s my creation.

Here’s another view.

I’ve mounted the tips of the end leaves on dimensionals along with the flower. I have also added some Dazzling Details to the centre of the flower but it doesn’t show up real well in this photo.

Stamp sets: Secret Garden, Elements of Style
Card: Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, Whisper White, In Color 2012 – 2014 Patterns Stack (Summer Starfruit print)

happy birthday to you

I’m back with another challenge card for you all.

Can you believe it?

Let’s just hope it keeps up as I’m sure you want to see more than just my Design Team commitments posted on here.

So this card is actually combining 2 challenges.

First up is Color Throwdown #235

I’ve teamed this with CAS – Colours & Sketches #18 – Sketch

I’ve made a standard size card rather than a square one as per the sketch but I’ve kept the layout. As soon as I saw the circles I went for my Circle Circus stamp set and this is what I came up with.

Here’s another angle so you can see all the ‘circles’ are popped up.

A very clean and simple card but I love how it turned out.

Stamp sets: Circle Circus, Fabulous Phrases
Card: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals
Accessories: Stampin’ Pierce Mat, Paper-Piercing Tool, Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack, 1 3/4” Scallop Punch, 1 3/4” Circle, 1 1/4” Circle, 1” Circle & 3/4” Circle Punches, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Stampin’ Dimensionals.
