Today is my turn to share at the Unstampabelles Challenge you can find it here
After my not following the rules for The Colour Tree Challenge I decided to have another go. I also have no excuses for not having a go at the Spring Planter Box tutorial Bronwyn kindly gave all participants from Challenge #1.
This will be given to a friend who had a birthday last week – late I know but we wont see each other til next week so all OK.
I have used the correct colours this time for the challenge at TCTC #4 here
Instead of stamping with the hardwood stamp set I inked up my Sizzix Woodgrain embossing folder with crumb cake ink (an allowable neutral I think) and embossed the pieces. I also substituted in Sizzlits Little leaves die which I used to make the leaves from Pool Party Cardstock. I created the flowers on calypso coral and daffodil delight cardstock with calypso coral marker and daffodil delight ink. I used SU Petite Petals and SU Flower shop stamp sets. I created the little Happy Birthday tag using SU Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set stamped in tip top taupe and die cut with Tag and Labels Framelits on very vanilla cardstock. The twine is white Baker’s twin. I die cut the butterflies using Bold Butterflies Framelits.

If you haven’t heard the Crafting with Dragonflies challenge blog is back.
First challenge can be found here
I am happy to hear Hilde is upto running this again.
It was a little prompt for me to get some butterflies who have been sitting on my workspace onto a card!
So while I was linking up to this challenge I will also link up to the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge here
I stamped these butterflies a couple of weeks ago and that was as far as I got. I have been busy knitting and haven’t got back to my workspace.
I started with a whisper white thick card base. The butterflies are stamped from SU Watercolor Wings in crushed curry marker, daffodil delight ink and memento tuxedo black ink onto a scrap of whisper white cardstock.
I then die cut with the co ordinating framelits. I finished the buttefly with black rhinestones. The pattern paper is from SU Cherry on top mounted onto black cardstock. The sentiment is from SU Butterfly Basics.
As I had a few more butterflies cut out I created a couple more cards.
and to finish off today
Mr 17 has an 18th this weekend and needed a card. I coloured this Jane’s Doodles digital image some time ago with alcohol markers and he picked this for the card front.
I finished off with Papersmooches Digits and numbers dies and mounted onto co ordinating cardstock.
I hope you have a great weekend planned.
This morning I have been marshaling at a walk-a-thon for Ms 10. Tomorrow we have only 2 games of netball (down from 4). Ms 15 & Ms 19’s team is in the first preliminary final. To round out the weekend we have a few parties and the normal mum’s taxi service will be running.
Hope to be back soon with some more creations.
I have just committed myself to an Artisan Market in my local area. Will post details later.
