Flowers and Butterflies

Hi everyone,


Wow, I am back from Convention and it has been a great couple of days.  I caught up with lots of people, made some new friends and got some great new ideas.


But for now I am helping my daughter complete an assignment and getting ready for the next week – it does not take long to fall back into the ‘normal’ routine :)


Its time for the new weekly challenge at Come and Get It and it has to be one of my favourite combinations – Flowers and Butterflies.


If you haven’t had a chance to participate in any of the challenges yet – give this one ago and if you need some inspiration pop over to the CAGI blog and have a look at what the other Design Team Members have created.


For my card I have used Soft Suede for the base card and I stamped some of the flowers from the Field Flowers stamp set on Very Vanilla.


I have used my markers Soft Suede and Pear Pizzazz for the leaves and stems of the flowers and the flowers are created using two step stamps. My colours are Bashful Blue and Marina Mist.


My butterflies of course have been created using the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die and they have been layered together in a combination of Bashful Blue, Marina Mist and Very Vanilla cardstock.


The Color Spritzer Tool has been used with Crumb Cake and Daffodil Delight markers to add a little bit of colour.


A scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock has been punched out using the Modern Label punch and stamped with ‘for you’ and this sentiment is from the Clearly For You stamp set.  I have also added a vintage brad to one end and daubered with Soft Suede.


The top of the card and down one side has been torn and the edges rolled and I added some retired Soft Suede Ribbon along the bottom of the card.


Here is my card:





Stamp set: Clearly for You, Field Flowers

Card: Soft Suede, Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Very Vanilla
Ink: Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Soft Suede, Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake

Accessories:  Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die, Modern Label Punch, Soft Suede Ribbon (retired), Antique Brads,
Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



At first I was going to stamp my flowers in pinks but I love the end result with the blue flowers.
