OH ALICE - IT'S A FRIENDS WITH FLAIR PLAYDATE TUESDAY TRIGGER
I made this card using the Tuesday Morning Sketch #52, the Curtain Call Color Challenge: ACT36 - red, kraft, blue, white; Oh Alice Chapter 19 - sparkly. I used kraft paper from the Paper Studio for my card base and then used a scrap of an old BoBunny paper (the dots) and then some Daisy D checked paper. I stamped the butterfly and colored it with my copic markers and then topped it with some stickles for my "sparkly". I stamped the rose from the Melody Ross set and then the topped it with the sentiment in Not Quite Navy from Stampin Up. Love how this turned out.
This is a card I made for one of the June challenges over on Simply Scrapping Crafts using a paper iris. They gave a link for the pattern and I used some Basic Grey and Karen Russell paper for the iris and used a button and ribbon from my craft stash for the center of the iris. I used my Tim Holtz Alterations die to cut my flourishes out of Daisy D papers. The butterfly is from a Unity stamp and colored with my copic markers. I used a McGill oval punch to cut the label for my sentiment which is stamped with Stampin Up ink and using a Unity stamp. I used dew drops for accents on the label and then some ribbon from my craft stash. The inspiration for the colors came from this Tuesday Trigger: These colors just look so summery to me. Will have to make more of the paper irises--love them!
And, to totally change seasons, here is a Christmas card. WOW - what a switch! I made this card for the Unscripted Sketch Bonus #1 Christmas in July celebration and used the colors in Playdate Cafe Color Challenge #35 - red, pink and white. This basic grey paper is perfect since it is pink and white. The Stampin Up embossing folder goes perfectly with this paper as well. I accented the embossed paper with my Pebble chalks. I used some Prima Poinsettia topping them with a Unity poinsettia stamp which was then topped with a basic grey feltie. I used a Spellbinders die to cut the pink "doily". The "merry christmas" sentiment is from Close to my Heart.
Thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope you enjoyed these cards as much as I enjoyed making them. Have a very blessed holiday weekend. Happy Independence Day!
