MMCC July 2015 Challenge #13 – DLC!!! Blue Reminder Extra

I am so happy to be sharing some cards with you today as part of the MMCC Design Team. This month’s blue themed challenge is so much fun! Remember, you have until July 25, 11:55 p.m. PDT (GMT-7) to play!

Isn’t this a cool theme?! I liked it so much that I made a bunch if different cards for this challenge. I have 4 fairly similar cards to share with you in this post. For all of these cards I used lots of ink for sponging and stamped the background with Stamplorations Trendy Butterflies and SU Mixed Bunch Flowers. On 2 of the cards I used some ink-tinted Gesso and a Stamplorations Bubble stencil. There’s dry embossing, Stickles, vellum, ribbon, sequins, and heat embossing involved in multiple of the cards too. A mixed media party was goin’ on at my stamping table!

Here’s my first one:

I’m going to play this “Just a Note” card over at SSS Monday’s Challenge: i scream for…these cards are all quite INKY!

ATSM Challenge #151 – AG

    Addicted to Stamps and More!

Wow! What an exciting day! Things sure are buzzing around here at honeybeelane! I’m so happy to be joining the ATSM Design Team AND the HLS Sketch Challenge DT for the first time today! This week’s ATSM “Anything Goes” Challenge is a favorite at Addicted to Stamps and More.  This week our sponsor is Stamplorations.

The prize is a $10 gift certificate for the store.

Get ready! I am so excited to be joining the ATSM team that I made 6 different cards for this post! 🙂 This first card was made with the Artplorations Bubble stencil.

IMG_7067editedI know, 6 cards may be a little much, but my excitement is “bubbling over” into my card-making! 😉

Next, I made a whole bunch of cards using the ARTplorations Stencil, Shower of Flutters. The more I use this stencil, the more I love this stencil! For this first butterfly card I also used Trendy Butterflies stamp set.

I made a set of rainbow cards with this stencil too.

Slide10Did I mention that I LOVE this stencil? If you’d like, you can see some other cards that I’ve made with this stencil here and here.
 I used nearly every last scrap of the butterfly background paper that I made.  I liked it too much to throw it away! Please see the following slide show for more details of how I made these cards.
