More Butterfly’s…

Hello Friends and Stampers!

Welcome back to more Butterfly’s!

Yesterday,  I showed you a card, with a different Butterfly pattern

from the Paper Studio’s ‘Botanicals’ DSP pack.

Today’s Cards are the same pattern, but for 2 different recipients!

 

Card #1- a Get Well Card

100_5595

I used the same coloring technique of coloring the Butterfly’s

by sponging them with finger sponge daubers!

I used the same colors too!

Lemon Lime Twist, Flirty Flamingo, and Calypso Coral!

Here is the inside of this Card!

100_5592

 

Card #2- an encouraging card

100_5597

Both Cards are identical in construction,

except for the greeting and inside sentiments.

Which is to say, you can use your layouts on a card,

for any reason…no limitations to the reason for the card!

Here is the inside to Card #2

100_5594

Again matching Stampin’Up! colors to a non-Stampin’Up! product

Butterfly Love for FMS 370…

Hello Stampers and Card Lovers!

Welcome Back to  another Card

for a Sketch Challenge!

(My favorite Challenges!)

Today’s Challenger is from Freshly Made Sketches # 370 (FMS370)

 

Here is the Challenge!

fms 370

I am still playing around with the DSP pads given to me from my Friend!

I have made a resolution to use up all the freebies and gifts of DSP and elements

given to me by Friends…I will admit, I pulled out the pages that I liked

the rest I will give away! Using Non-Stampin’Up! items is a great

challenge to me…matching Cardstock to the colors in the DSP. One thing with

Stampin’Up! Everything is color coordinated…it’s really all done for you!

What I can match I do, if I can’t, then I don’t use it. I like color to

flow, not clash or strain! After all, your card is going to someone you love!

You want them to feel the love in your card, not try to make so sense out of it!

 

Here is my Card!

100_5599

Although the stamp set and the punches are retired…they are my

all time favorite butterfly stamps and punches.

I am getting the new one from the Occasions Catalog.

It will be on my next order to go into Stampin’Up!

Until then, I fall back on a retired set that I love to use a lot!

 

Here is how I did the inside of my Card!

100_5600

For the front 6 small butterfly’s and the inside small and large butterfly’s,

I stamped them all in Black first and then used sponge daubers to color in

the butterfly’s, then I punched them out! All are adhered by Mini Glue Dots

to the front and to the inside of the Card!

 

HERE ARE THE STOCK AND MEASURES:

CARDSTOCK:

Mossy Meadow- card base, 8.5″ X 5.5″ scored @ 4.25″ fold in half on the score

Basic Black- scraps for the greeting       front panel, 4″ X 5.25″

white Staple’s cardstock- inside panel, 4″ X 5.25″

a large piece, to stamp the butterfly’s onto for coloring and then punching out
