Bitty Butterfly

CASologyFreeSo the CASology theme this time is FREE.  WOW…what a theme!  My first thought was patriotic then I thought of the title “Butterflies are Free” and decided to go with that interpretation of the theme.

This is really quite a quick card.  The base of the card is 3 3 /4 x 11 folded.  I took another piece of the Whisper White, ran it through the embossing folder then added to the card front.  I love this saying that was part of the SAB Vintage Verses and since that is gone…I just used my MDS program to to this greeting in Smoky Slate and Real Red, printed it onto Whisper White and cut out.  Next I added 8 butterflies in Pool Party in one in Real Red Polka Dotted.  It’s a little hard to see but the red one has rhinestones for the body.  I added a short little scallop edge in Real Red than added this panel to the card front using dimensionals to finish it off!

Clockworks

ClockworksHappy last day of Sale-a-bration!  Wow…it always goes sooo fast and I NEVER have time to do all the cards I want!  Here’s a quick card (well, a slightly different version) of a card we did on Tuesday at my workshop.

The base of the card is Sahara Sand.  I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped images in Sahara Sand, Riding Hood Red, and Basic Black,  This is layered onto Basic Black then to the card front.  Next stamped the clock face in Riding Hood Red on Whisper White, stamped the hands in Basic Black, punched with the 1 1/4″ Circle punch and added to the card front. Finally I added two banners – one is Riding Hood Red Striped and the other Basic Black to finish it up.

Swallowtail

DSC00621Oh…here’s this WONDERFUL stamp AGAIN!!!  LOVE IT!!!  This week is a happy color challenge on Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  Oh… just a note… only 2 more days to get the sentiment set!

The base of card is Daffodil Delight.  I took a piece of Whisper White, layered on Not Quite Navy then added to the card front.  I took a piece of Whisper White, stamped the butterfly in versamark and embossed in white.  I used markers for the Daffodil Delight and Not Quite Navy.  I sponged Marina Mist on the main part of the butterfly and added a little extra Not Quite Navy.  I cut the butterfly and added to the card front.  I stamped the greeting from Vintage Verses using Versamark on not Quite Navy, white embossed and cut into a banner.  I added a Marina Mist Button to a 7/8″ Daffodil Delight Scallop Circle using Whisper White Bakers Twine, added to the banner then added to the card to finish it off.

Oh…these colors just feel like spring!  So spring into action and join us on Create with Connie and Mary for our Thursday Challenge!
