Feels like Spring

I am entering my floral butterfly into the following challenges:

Whimsy Stamps Pretty in Pink
Milk Coffee Welcome Spring
Cute Card Thursday Butterfly Kisses
Simon Says Stamp Spring Flowers
I love Promarkers Embossing Challenge

The sentiment and small flower were heat embossed in Gold onto a label cut with a Spellbinders die.  The butterfly and flower stamps are by Hunkydory and are stamped on a Spellbinders fancy square.  I have used Promarkers to colour my butterflies.  The pink base card is by Anna Griffin and the pink wild rose has been in my craft stash for years.


Here is my card for the Cute card Thursday Butterfly Kisses challenge. 

The butterfly stamps are by Hunkydory and the sentiment is from Waltzingmouse stamps.  I used Spellbinders dies for the diecut labels and coloured the butterflies with Flexmarkers to match the embossed backing paper.  The card is finished off with 3 matching paper roses.

Vintage Page

The latest Play Date Cafe Challenge 176 colours Cappuccino...Slate...Burlap really appealed to me, which was a surprise as I generally prefer vibrant to neutral shades.  This vintage page was created with Serif Craft Artist.  It seemed to take forever but I am quite pleased with the result.

Pink and Brown

I am entering this card using one of my favourite colour combinations into two challenges:

Polka Doodles #14 Pink and Brown

CFC #97 Chevrons and Flowers

It's a simple card using stamps which were a gift with the latest Get Stamping magazine.  I used a fine liner pen to doodle patterns onto the stamped chevrons.

The Sweet Smell of a Color

This is my entry for the Play Date Cafe Challenge No 175 The Sweet Smell of a Colour.  I stamped the image direct onto the base card.  It's a pretty floral tag stamp by Rubber Stampede, coloured with Promarkers, as is the ribbon and die cut butterfly.  I added dimensional pearl paint and holographic glitter to finish the card.

Welcome Spring! PDCC174

I made this card for the latest Play Date Cafe Challenge - Welcome Spring! PDCC174.  The image was stamped using a floral background stamp by Elusive Images and coloured with Promarkers to match the challenge colours of amethyst, emerald and peridot.  The sentiment tab was made with a Whimsy stamp and die and again coloured with markers.  I finished the card off with amethyst coloured pearls and 3 roses to match.

LOVEBIRDS - Let's Be Friends PDCC172

I am entering this card into the latest Play Date Cafe Challenge.  The stamped image
has been coloured with Promarkers and the paper is (I think) by My Minds Eye. The
white card I used to stamp on was cut out with a Spellbinders die and I added a
few gems and pendant embellishment to finish off my card.
