How Many?!

Happy Thursday Friends! I don’t mean to freak you out BUT… Can you believe there are only NINE Thursdays left before Christmas?!?!?! EEEEK! I’ve started some shopping but I’m usually a lot further ahead than I am now. I digress, let’s talk color darling. Without further adieu checkout out the color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary this week!

I just can’t help but think of nature when looking at this trio so here is what I came up with:

Nothing

I played around with different stamp sets and finally decided on a trio of Kinda Eclectic, Butterfly Basics, and Papillon Potpourri. This is clean, simple, and without any bling I dare say. I did use the Bitty Butterfly Punch to give my winged friend some dimension.

Hello Friends!

It’s color challenge time at Create with Connie and Mary! Clearly I did not look ahead when I posted last week’s challenge card or I would have chosen a different color scheme! But I did change it up a bit. My last two cards have been ink free so I decided to stamp it up a little. Get it? Stampin’ Up?! HAHAHA! Cheddar moment! ๐Ÿ˜€

I used the Butterfly Basics set along with a little flower from Friendly Wishes that I inked with the Stampin’ Write Markers. My thread is actually a strip I unraveled from the Burlap Ribbon. It’s got a bit more umph than the linen thread if that makes sense!

Did you notice my arch nemesis Soft Sky?! But ya know what, I didn’t fight him. I went with the flow. We’re not chummy by any means but at least it wasn’t a throw down this time! ๐Ÿ™‚

Blackberry Bliss

I got a little “stampy” with this one… Ok, I got a LOT stampy!ย  I used three different sets, Really Good Greetings, Butterfly Basics, and Beautiful Bunch. When I went to stamp my fern I accidentally stamped it into the Blackberry Bliss and without realizing it Stamped it into the Smoky Slate. The picture doesn’t show it too well but I got a multicolored fern that looks pretty cool. I just hope I didn’t forever ruin the ink pad!

Hey there! It’s a color challenge this week over at Create with Connie and Mary. and I decided to play along at Retrosketches I have a weird relationship with Soft Sky. It really looks so pretty until I get my hands on it. I know, it sounds crazy. I probably need help with this along with my paper hoarding!

So, I used it minimally but it did make a cute little butterfly.

hello

The stamp set is from the Butterfly Basics. I used the new Hello You thinlit die for the sentiment. I just used two of the oval framelits to create the frame and bumped it up with some dimensionals. And there ya have it, Soft Sky and all! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hi All!

Here is my take on the sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary this week. I love these sketch challenges and seeing everyone’s interpretations of them. You should join in the fun!

Happy Birthday Wishes1

For this card I used Night of Navy card stock with Flowerpot Designer Series Paper. The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs set.

Close Up1

The Whisper White card stock was a bit too white so I stamped first using the cool honeycomb looking stamp from the new Butterfly Basics set first in Lost Lagoon and then I stamped “happy birthday wishes” in Night of Navy.

The flower is from the Flower Frenzy Bigz L die. I love what this thing can do. Doesn’t that flower look full? Only took one spin of the Bigshot! I just layered two small pieces of cardstockย  onto the die and ran it through. I like to use it on scrap pieces of card stock. You can never go wrong with a flower!

Side Shot1

Can you tell a difference in this last picture and the first? Something was driving me crazy and I finally decided what it was and made a switcharoo. Tell me if you can see what I changed! ๐Ÿ˜‰
