A butterfly card for a friend

When lacking mojo I find it helpful to use sketches and rummage through my stash. I came by this old DP and thought of this week's sketch over at Paper PLayers. The butterfly border was prepared long ago, I had heat embossed with a lace stamp on vellum and used a TH die to cut it out from the vellum and white backing paper. I heat embossed the sentiment, chosen for it's size mainly. Silver liquid pearls were added. I chose the mini slimline size, I find this card best for cards that are likely to get posted, to keep within weight limits.

This card is for:
The Paper Players - #584 Sketch
- #669 In The Garden (butterflies
Moving along with the Times
- #140 Friends

For our new challenge at Inkspirational we have the theme of ANIMALS THAT HOP. I googled it and was surprised how many animals actually do, but I went with the obvious choice of hares or rabbits.

Imade a circle shaped card and flower dies from Tim Holtz. All stamps are from Lavinia.

Please head over to the challenge blog to see the my INK-teamies have made. 

This card is also for:
Little Red Wagon - #645 Die Cuts

Favorite color combination for any occasion

I love a black and white color scheme, with or without a touch of color - this time I added some gold watercolor paint.
The Lavinia stamps are perfect for this kind of color scheme, as well as my old Memory Box flower dies, used with black glitter paper for this card. I'm not always keen on coloring and with these stamps I don't need to. A stamping platform is highly recommended though.
I left out a sentiment as I think this card can be used for more than one occasion, whick makes it quite a versatile card.

This card is for:
Addicted to Stamps and More - #424 Any Occasion

INK #260 - Curve

For our challenge at Inkspirational we have the theme of CURVE for the next two weeks. What I love about our word prompts is that you can interpret the theme in many ways.
I was thinking of the female body and how tailormade clothings show off the curves.
So out came my papers from ScrapBoys, a scalloped oval die from Spellbinders, which I believe was part of my first ever die purchase, and a border die from Pinkfresh Studio. Popped behind the bottom part of the dressmaker is a measuring tape ribbon.

Please head over to the challenge blog to see the my INK-teamies have made. 

This card is also for:
Fab n Funky - #546 - Dies and Stencils
Little Red Wagon - #643 Something with Letter B: Blue, border, buttons, bobbin

Here's my card for the February The Card Chain Challenge reveal. I have already joined 6 times, I do look forward to once a month receieving a card from a fellow card maker from anywhere in the world. Anyone can enter as long as you are willing to snail mail a card to a fellow crafter.  If you'd like to join in for the March challenge, you can sign up here until til 6th.  


This time my card went to Gail in Norway. I followed both the sketch and the theme of friendship. I used stamps from Lavinia, a torn piece of DP an metallic wartercolor paint for splatter.




I recieved my card from Tina in Slovenia. There's lots of texture and colors and a bit of a grungy look, so cool, thank you so much!
