Butterfly card

I seem to be using butterflies on all cards lately whether its as a die or stamp, but thought I’d share another one I made using the same sketch I used yesterday, this time using Flight of the Butterfly stamp set and another colour challenge over on Inkspirations 4 U.

I doubled up my butterfly to give it a more 3D effect

Card: Bashful Blue, Real Red, Crumb Cake, Whisper White

Ink: Real Red, Bashful Blue

Stamp: Flight of the Butterfly, Pocket Silhouette

Other: Scallop Edge border punch

Until later, happy stampin’


Colour challenge

I’ve combined two challenges again for this card – a sketch from Inkspiration 4 U & colour palette from The Colour Throwdown – #143

This was the colour palette from The Colour Throwdown:

This was the sketch from Inkspiration 4 U:

Stamp: Garden Whimsy, Silhouette Sentiments

Other: Scallop Trim border punch 

Until later, happy stampin’

Clean & Simple sketch

Today I’m sharing my cards I made using this week’s sketch 141 over on Clean & Simple.

This is actually my second card I made &  I used the embossing folder – Framed Tulips

This was my first – which followed the sketch a little more closely.

This was the sketch

I again used the colour combination from Inkspirations 4U challenge

Stamp: Silhouette Sentiments (Level 1 hostess set), So Happy For You (SAB 2011 set)

Other: Framed Tulip Textured Impressions embossing folder, Beautiful Wings Embosslits die, 1″ Circle punch

I will admit these cards were a little time consuming colouring in my stamps each time with my Stampin’ Write pens to give the 2 coloured image…. but I think well worth the effort.  What do you think??

Until later, happy stampin’
