IC423Cheer up Buttercup!  Okay…so I REALLY wanted to do some stamping today (okay…I really NEED to do some stamping today but don’t have much energy.  I hadn’t been feeling good and went to the doctor last Tuesday.  She thought it might be a heart problem, ended up I had pneumonia.  I think I might finally be on  the mend (if laundry doesn’t do me in today!  LOL!!!).

Since I wanted to use some of my NEW STUFF and wanted to join a challenge, I decided to do the Inspiration Challenge on SCS.  This is the piece that was my inspiration…honeycomb votive holder.  I used the honeycomb idea and my new Hexagon Hive Thinlit cut from Smoky Slate and I was ready to rock and roll…okay…I was ready to slowly work on this!

Here’s the details…

  • So Saffon 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Stamp the one splatter in Crushed Curry and the other (small one) in Smoky Slate
  • Smokey Slate – Cut with Hexagon hive Thinlet (I used a double layer of wax paper between the thinlit and the paper and it cut and released GREAT!  Add to card base using dimensionals.
  • Whisper White 3 1/2 x 1.  Stamp greeting using Crushed Curry and Basic Black, cut in to a banner.
  • Take a piece of Crushed Curry Chevron, fold over, pinch and secure with a Candy Dot brad base and add to the banner.  Add to banner.  Add a Smoky Slate Candy Dot to the base.
  • Add 1/4″ strip of Basic Black behind banner and add banner to card front using a double layer of dimensionals.
  • Punch two Elegant Butterflies from Crushed Curry and two Bitty Butterflies from Basic Black.  Layer and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.
