Cheer 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.
