TGIF paper crafters! The end of another week. Where does the time go?
Today I made a card for a challenge put on by a company that I really adore – My Time Made Easy. They have lots of great products, especially if you are into 3D paper crafts. Check them out when you get a chance. There is something for everyone. Anyway, here is the sketch…
…and here is what I came up with.
I thought it would be fun to make my own patterned paper with stamps and since spring is in the air I decided to go with flowers and butterflies! I cut the card and background pieces out of White Daisy CS and the matte pieces out of Hollyhock CS. Four different stamp sets were used to make this card – Take A Picture, Love Life, Card Chatter Birthday and Happy Memory.
With Blush ink I stamped the “rainbow” dotted pattern onto the large background piece of cardstock. I then took the itty bitty flower and stamped it in the middle of each rainbow. The butterflies were stamped with part of a stamp from the Take a Picture stamp set using the masking technique. I also blended the colours gradually from light orange to dark purple to add a bit of interest.
The butterfly was cut out using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. I added 3 black pearl accents on the body as well as to the left hand side of the card on the pink ribbon. The last thing I did was stamped the sentiment at the top in Blush ink. That’s it – tout fini!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone and happy crafting!
