Chalk Butterfly

Flutterby Wednesday is hosting an Open Challenge this week - Anything Goes as long as your creation has a butterfly or a fairy on it!  

I've been going through my old stamp sets lately and have one of the first techniques I learned on my card today too - the chalkboard technique.  I stamped the solid image of the butterfly with craft white ink on black cardstock.  After I gave it a few minutes to dry, I colored over it randomly with my chalk pastels before stamping the butterfly outline over it.  Then the sentiment is stamped directly onto the organdy ribbon.

Flowers in Bottles

It's Danni's 14th Anniversary, so we are celebrating all things love, wedding and anniversary along with your fairy or butterfly at Flutterby Wednesday!  We are also happy to announce A Day for Daisies is sponsoring this challenge ~ be sure to check out all the details on how to play along at Flutterby Wednesday.

I used the ADFD image called Flowers in Bottles - printing it twice, so I could fussy cut and pop up the image of the second one.  Sentiment is from the Hugs and Kisses set by Paper Makeup Stamps.

Script Butterfly

At Flutterby Wednesday this week, 
we are looking for a sentiment on the front of your creation, 
along with your butterfly or fairy!

For my card I used the negative cut from a SU! die
 as a stencil to sponge the butterfly and stamp a script design over it.

This is another favorite card from a recent stamp class.
Love the little pop of red from the heart and the classy pearls too!

Easter Blessings - From the Heart

Today I found the most adorable images at From the Heart.  I noticed they have a weekly sketch challenge and a monthly stamp of the month challenge too, so I decided to play along with both!  {grin}

I used one of the baskets from the Spring Baskets set along with a partial sentiment from Elegant Easter Sentiments.
