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.

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 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.

Fluttery Rainbow & Some Fun News

Today I have an exciting announcement to make! I’m one of the newest mixed media card artists at The Mixed Media Card Challenge. I’ll be joining the mixed media card challenge design team beginning in July! To celebrate the announcement today I made a bunch of butterfly cards today. I had a lot of fun making all sorts of different ones!

Here’s a fluttery rainbow.

IMG_6501editedI used a free/prize digi stamp from Stamplorations which I cropped and printed on heavy card-stock. I masked the flowers off with some liquid mask and then stamped the rainbow of small Trendy Butterflies. Then I removed the liquid mask and colored the flowers in with my SU! markers. Then I added some Glossy Accents to the flowers.

The sentiment is from a prize stamp set that I won over at Word Art Wednesday from Gloria, Close to My Heart Consultant. Thanks Karen and Gloria! I’m going to play this card over at WAW Challenge #188!
