I have a sick little boy home with me this week and he always wants me to craft while he plays video games or watches TV. It’s a good excuse for me to get some projects done, I need to make some Mother’s Day cards for the upcoming craft fair. 🙂
I really like the Butterfly Basics stamp set. I think I need to get some more texture stamps for backgrounds because these are fun! I’m playing along with the Global Design Project Sketch Challenge today.
Here’s my card:
and here is the sketch:
Cut the Whisper White heavy cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, scoring at 5 1/2″.
Stamp the dashed line in Pool Party.
Using the honeycomb stamp and Pool Party, stamp off once before stamping below the dashed line. Repeat next to it.
Stamp Happy Birthday in Rose Red.
Using the Elegant Butterfly Punch and the Rose Red patterned paper from the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack, punch out a butterfly and attach next to the sentiment with the Fine Tip Glue Pen.
Using the small flower stamp and Blushing Bride, stamp a few flowers.
We’re replacing Weekly Deals with a less frequent but better promotion called Special Offers. These Special Offers will occur every few months with more products and discount tiers than Weekly Deals. The last sets of Weekly Deals will be April 5-18.
I’m playing along with the Mojo Monday sketch challenge today.
Here’s my take on it:
and here’s the sketch:
I used the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack for the three patterned papers on the card. The Old Olive one is cut at 4″ x 4″, the flowers at 2″ x 2″ and the Calypso Coral pattern is cut at 3 1/2″ x 3/4″. I layered each piece with Basic Black using a 1/16″ border and adhered the panel to a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Very Vanilla. The sentiment comes from Suite Sayings and I used the 1 3/4″ circle punch for both of the circle. I finished it off with the Bitty Butterfly punch and the Rhinestones Basic Jewels.
