Butterfly in the Flower Garden – Thank You

Hi! Quick post with a “just for fun” card for some of my favorite CAS challenges.

I used the new Bloomtangled die (#1) to die cut a panel and then used the die cut paper as a stencil. I also created a couple of die-cut stencil/masks and did some masking to make this one-layer card.

 I applied the solid butterfly mask to the card front and stenciled over it with the large cover plate stencil. Then I removed the stencil and the mask. Next, I masked off the butterfly several times, using the negative and positive butterfly die cuts to stencil the butterfly.

I used the butterfly mask and butterfly stencil to make 2 other cards.

I think that it is a lot of fun to get 3 cards for 1!

I’d better get out of my warm bed now!

Lots of things going on here today.

There’s very cold, windy, wintry weather, a special birthday and planning for our week.

There’s longer term planning to do for the coming gardening season too.

To look out of my window, you’d think that would be far away, but it’ll be here soon.

It was 10° Fahrenheit when my husband checked the temperature before we went to bed last night. He’s bringing in lots more firewood now because we’re going to be having some abnormally low temperatures this week.

Pretty soon there will be butterflies, but for now there is snow.

Thanks for stopping by!

Never Hide Your Wings – Butterfly with Flowers

Hi! Quick post with a “just for fun” card.

I used the new Bloomtangled die (#1) to die cut a panel and then used the die cut paper panel to partially dry emboss my card front.

I used my scoring board to add 3 dry embossed lines.

The butterfly is a mask that I recycled from another card here. 

I also used another mask from the above card for this card here.

It’s a Threefer!

Hi! Quick post with a “just for fun” card.

Lots of things going on here. There’s very cold, windy, wintry weather, a special birthday and there’ll also be planning for our week and the coming gardening season included in our day too.

It was 10° Fahrenheit when my husband checked the temperature before we went to bed last night.

Pretty soon there will be dragonflies, but for now there is snow!

Beautifully Abstract

Hi! I here with a quick post and a CAS card just for fun.

I’ve been having a lot of fun with my new CUTplorations Bloomtangled Cover Plate #1.

I colored with red, yellow and blue Zigs on the back side of a butterfly stamp. Then I added a bit of water to the stamp and stamped with it. I die cut at an angle and added the rainbow beautiful die cut word.

For the Birds – Faith Sings – Geometric Bird 3 with Heart

Hello from snowy Maine!

I have a bright, bold and cheerful almost one-layer card to share with you.

I did some ink-blending, stamping, fussy cutting, die cutting and masking to create this card. Besides the red heart die cut negative, the rest of the card is one-layer. I used only ink-blending and stamping on the white card base.

This card was partially inspired by the following card that I made in February of 2016. Slide002

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace, Peace, and Happy New Year,

Melissa
