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!

STAMPlorations February Challenge – Paint it Red

Hi! I’m here with a special post for STAMPlorations February Challenge.

You’ve probably heard that STAMPlorations owner and designer, Shery Russ, welcomed a daughter named “Winter” to the family in December. In order to give Shery some time to catch her breath we are going to take a little “Winter” break!

There will be just one STAMPlorations challenge for you to join for the months of February, March and April. You’ll find it announced on STAMPlorations blog the 5th of each of those months. The challenge will have a theme and as long as you follow the theme, any type of project is welcome! We’ll return to our regular schedule in May.

I used ARTplorations “Hidden Hearts” stencil to make all 5 of the following cards.

Here’s my set of cards.

Here’s my sweet parade of cupcake cards.

Card #1 Thanks (SSSMonday)

Card #2 CAS XOXO (FMS322,The Paper Players,WAW)

Card #3 Love (CFC192, JUGS#426)

Card #4 XOXO with navy colored card (Fusion Sketch)

Card #5 Sweet (MFT, WAW)

So, our theme for the February challenge is Paint it Red! What does that make you think of? Hearts? How about coffee/tea and sweets? We’d love to see your creations using the color red or having a theme of love.

Take a look at what some of the DT gals created.
