Butterfly Branch

Happy Labour Day weekend everyone!

I am so happy I got some time to play this weekend.  I am a big fan of Donna Mikasa's beautiful CAS style, I absolutely adore her DT project for the current CAS(E) this Sketch challenge #90.

And I love the green and white CAS inspiration photo of The Card Concept challenge #17.

And I would like to link up the current SSS Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.

So my CAS card for these challenges looks like this:

The close up shows the Wink of Stella I put on the butterfly.

The die I used is Elsa Butterfly Branch from PoppyStamps.  Sentiment from the SSS Flower Friend Set.

Thanks for visiting!!

beaded clip hello

Hello my crafty friend:

It's Thursday, very close to the weekend!  

Last night I made a small tag card for two challenges:

My finished card measures 3 by 4 1/4 inch.

I was inspired by Betsy Veldman's Star Birthday Card featured in the Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking August issue.  She threaded beads onto bobby pins on her card.

Stamps from Hero Arts Forever and Time set (AC037, AC029).

Thanks for stopping by.

Wine Label Lavender

Good morning everyone:

I am very excited to share a card I made with a wine label today.  You see, I was one of the lucky winners of Jacquline's wine label giveaway earlier this year.  Ever since I received those lovely treasures I wanted to play but haven't found a layout that I like, until yesterday!

Here it is:

Bird stamp from Echo Park (For The Record (stamp and Framelits set)), stamped, coloured with pencils, and die cut.  Rest of stamps from kei'art (Tu Me Manques).  The larger flower was stamped with destress ink with additional colouring using pencils, outlined using marker and fussy cut.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very lovely day!!  :)

Hello there, welcome back!

Today I share a card I made for two challenges.

First the card, I think it could be considered as a Free Style Collage.

Now the challenges:

I was inspired by the soft, pale colours of the flowers.

I was inspired by the number card in the inspiration photo.

The supplies:

The larger flower and sentiment are from the Hero Art Forever (AC037) set, smaller flowers are from the Technique Tuesday Two Stepping Minis (TSMin) set.  
The AMPERSAND was generated using MS Word and enlarged, I printed it on scrap paper then used as a template to cut two pieces from white CS; the front piece I dry embossed with a folder from Cuttlebug (but I don't have the name or the product code, it came with my Cuttlebug).
Ink used:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Distress Crushed Olive.  Others: Derwent Studio colouring pencils.

Thanks for stopping by.

Flower Shape Thank You

Hi everyone:

I am happy I made one of my favorite shape card today, but I am not one hundred percent happy about it!  Cause it didn't turn out as clean as I wanted, and I don't have a backup piece to redo!  :(  Anyway I will share and link up to Virginia's View Challenge #6 - Shaped Card.

My card shape was downloaded from the Hero Arts Blog, and you could check it out here.

I was inspired by Virginia's paint swatch projects as you can see I use a paint swatch layered over my flower shape card base.  Sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts.  Flower stamps is from Kesi'art.

Come back soon, since I am planning to make more shape cards for Virginia's challenge.  :)
