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!
