SC897 Butterfly thanks

Morning. This paper pack has all different hues of blue and I just love it. It is called Glamour from Authentique and I can't remember when I got it. Probably years ago but still have several sheets left. This was perfect for my card today to show a few of the designs in the pack. 

I stamped these butterflies out from Pure Prairie Spirit stamp set which is not available now but, we do have a digital version. Colored with Copic markers then I cut around them to pop up on dimensionals. Then added some shimmers to make them shine and it looks so much better in real life. I had trouble getting that to show in the photo but its there. Voila!

Here is the sketch at a glance. Hope you can play along with us this week.

SC896 Coffee and Friends

This pack of paper is so pretty and the coffee theme is perfect with the colors. The paper pack is called Coffee with Friends from Echo Park and I bought it months ago and just now am using it. No stamping on this card at all as I used the paper to my advantage. 

I added the layers for each piece and then added sparkle to the base swirls and the cups on the one panel and the words coffee on the sentiment panel. Three brads added to the green stripped panel and voila. This came together very quick and easy today. 

Here is the SC896 Sketch at a glance. Hope you can play along with us. 

Here is another one that uses only the designer paper from the same pack. Added a little bit of a die cut flourishes behind the sentiment panel. Added some sparkle and a few scatters sequins for accents. Voila

SC895 Bliss Tidings for March

Morning. The plan was to get more stamping time in and well that hasn't happened as much. Just be happy I get what time I do get I guess. Anyways this was using stamp set Amaryllis Bliss but only the digital version called Amaryllis is available. I do love coloring these petals. I sized the image panel up first knowing I was going to have to cut it. Then colored with various Copic markers. 

Found a tutorial to follow for the cutting of the shapes and did okay not as great as I wanted. Then added them to the base layer. A little bit of stickles and some jewels. Voila 

Here is the Sketch Challenge SC895 at a glance. Hope you can play along this month.
