Stampin Up Papillon

CraftyCardmakers want 'things with wings' and 2Sisters have 'anything goes' for this week's challenge.

Don't you just love butterflies (well, I do!)

How to keep children entertained ... A pile of paper, nylon thread, couple of old CD-roms, bit of organza ribbon ... And the papillon and Bitty Butterfly punches!

Happy Sunday

Using the 10 minute craft dash colours - I took a little over 8 mins. TheCupboardTrilogy wants male cards.


CAS cards, masculine cards, SU Gorgeous Grunge

 

I have NO cards for my sons' friends so treated myself to this rather grungy (is that a word?) and cool rock star style stamp set.

My initial plans for a one layer card went awry so I went for the layered look!! The acetate was an afterthought - I didn't want to hide my grunged up background. With hindsight I rather like the ad hoc layered feel.

Nearly the weekend ... Not that I'm counting ...

I've used the Oval Frame embossing folder behind my stocking (if you can make it out behind the Grunge splatters!). The sentiment is from the Pennant Parade stamp set.

Got that Friday Feeling yet?!

I've gone full on down the grunge route and piled it on. I love the Dictionary stamp for an easy co-ordinated background and have splattered and splodged away quite merrily!

Hope you have a great weekend

Stampin Up Papillon Potpourri, Six sided Sampler

 

Using this week's SeizeTheSketch. LessIsMore wants rubber stamping with watercolouring.

Stampin Up Papillon Potpourri, Six sided Sampler

I used my Aqua Painter pen to add some colour to the butterfly wings (gently squeeze your ink pad against its lid to get a little 'pool' of ink and pick this up with an Aqua Painter or paintbrush). I also added some shimmery turquoise Mica powder to my hexagons - but it can't be seen in these photos!

Gorgeous day today - bright blue skies & sunshine

Using the photo inspiration from AddictedToStamps. Looking at their photo, it had to be the stamp set Wetlands!

Nearly the end of the summer holidays :(

Stampin Up Flower Shop, Pansy Punch

Happy Sunday! Been playing with all my new SU goodies (well it's far too windy & chilly to go out and garden...). First up today, the new stamp set Flower Shop & coordinating punch (to make life that little bit easier). The added texture on the strip of green card is done with a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge set and the wee sentiment is from the Sweetly Framed set.

Hope your weekend's going well
