BUTTERFLY BASICS FOR A SIMPLE MESSAGE

Good day and here’s a simple take on the Butterfly Basics stamp set.

The challenge from The Paper Players this week is to feature a clean and simple project that uses butterflies.  I couldn’t think of anything simpler that these 3 beauties with a touch of the new Color Theory Designer paper stack.

I used the Butterflies Thinlits Dies together with the Retiring Bitty Butterfly Punch.  I’m going to miss that punch!

I added a touch of the Gold Metallic Thread for their antennae using a Glue Dot and then attached all three to the card from with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  You’ll notice that the small piece of designer paper was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals as well.

Here’s the list of products that I used.

IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU AND DAISIES

It’s all about you says today’s card and it sports some bright and cheery daisies too!

I used Watermelon Wonder and Night of Navy for my daisies – not the “usual” colour, but I like them nestled there.

I was playing along with the Create with Connie and Mary Colour challenge as well as the card sketch for Freshly Made Sketches to start my week off with inspiration!

Here’s the sketch;

FEATURING THE NEW LEMON LIME TWIST

Hi there and take a look at the new Lemon Lime Twist InColor for 2017-2018!  It makes a great background for just about any image that you want to add to your project.

I used the You’ve Got This stamp set to highlight and watercolour the flower image to show off that great lemon lime colour.  The line of “squiggles” behind the image are compliments of the Lovely Inside & Out stamp set(new for this year)!

TIP:  When you want to do some watercolouring, use the Shimmery White cardstock as it will take the water better.

Have you received your new 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue yet?  If you are on my client list it should be in your mailbox very soon.  If you would like a catalogue and don’t have a relationship with a Demonstrator, make sure to Contact Me and I’ll get one to you.

JUST SITTING HERE THINKING OF YOU

There’s nothing like the promise of spring to bring out thoughts of sitting beside a pot of cheering flowers thinking of someone!

Of course, having your best buddy with you just makes the day!  I used the “masking” technique to place kitty in the basket as well as the pretty pot of flowers.

TIP:  For the masking technique, you just stamp each image onto a post-it note and then cut it out.  Then stamp the main image first (in this case, the kitty) and add the mask over that stamped image and then add the other images.

I used the Retiring InColor Watermelon Wonder for the card base and coloured the images with the matching and return Stampin’ Write Markers.

Here’s the full list of products.  Remember that the retiring items are going quickly, so if you haven’t added them to your collection, make sure that you do it before May 31st!

WHEN SOMEONE SPECIAL NEEDS TO KNOW

What a great way to start a Monday – with a card designed for someone special in your life!

I played around with the Guy Greetings stamp set(137178) with a touch of You’ve Got This(139575) for this special card.

It would be a great one for Father’s Day too( that was on my mind while creating it)!  I used the Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker to add the detail to the anchor image and love the look of the larger red circle behind it.

I was following along with the Freshly Made Sketches layout and am quite happy with the way it all came together.  Here’s the sketch so you can see why this card was put together this way.
