Hey Everyone

I’ve done it again – I’ve created yet another card using my Blendabilities.  Papillion Potpourri is one of my favourite stamp sets to colour.  To get some inspiration on how to colour my butterflies I googled “butterfly images” and decided to go ahead and use two colours. I really love the two-toned butterflies and how they pop of this Black & White DSP from Back To Black.

Just Add Ink #233

Hey Everyone

This weeks challenge at Just Add Ink is a sketch challenge.  Tina has designed this fab sketch.

When I sat down to create my card I tried a few different images and found that butterflies worked best for the sketch – look at me taking the sketch literally!  The Stampin’ Up! designer series paper I’ve used is called Back to Black.  By chance the DSP I cut for the banner kind of created a film strip effect that I found framed the butterflies perfectly.  The butterflies are from Papillion Potpourri and the sentiment is from Itty Bitty Banners.

Freshly Made Sketches #154

Hey Everyone

I’ve kind of been a bit quiet on here lately. I’ve been out of action with a migraine that stayed way too long.  It annoys me when it cuts into my crafting time!  Lucky I made my card before it hit, as I would’ve had to sit out this week.  I didn’t want to miss Cindy’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches as I think it’s totally fabulous! Head over to Cindy’s blog and check out her beautiful cards.

I opened a new-to-me pack of DSP for my card called Park Lane.  I’ve used the Daffodil Delight paper in the background.  I’ve teamed it with the black papers from Back to Black. The Stampin’ Up! stamps sets I’ve used are Serene Silhouettes, Papillion Potpourri and Petite Pairs.

Stampin’ Royalty #244 & Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #319

Hey Everyone

I love both of the challenges at Stampin’ Royalty and Create with Connie & Mary this week so I combined them for my card.  The challenge at Stampin’ Royalty is to create a Black and White card with a pop of colour.  Here’s the fabulous sketch from Create with Connie & Mary.

I had a bit of a play with my blendabilities today.  Not sure if I’m much of a colourer but I’m persisting with them for the time being.  The Stampin’ Up! stamp set I’ve used is Bloom with Hope – it’s a great one for colouring.  The DSP I’ve used in the background is from Back to Black and I’ve used a smidge of Basic Black DSP.
