Hi there, how’s the week going for you? I’m sitting here watching the CMT Music Award show red carpet show waiting for the show to start. Looking forward to seeing some of my favorite country artists perform, that includes Darius Rucker, Jason Aldean and Carrie Underwood. For Carrie it’s her first performance since having her baby earlier this year.
Today’s card is for a new Challenge blog that started this week – Stamp Ink Paper or SIP for short. This blog is lead by Justin Krieger (a very talented crafter) and a group of additional talented paper crafters, make sure to check out the blog. Their first challenge is a Card Makers Choice – using your favorites (stamps, ink & paper). For me what to use came rather easy, one of my go to stamp sets from Stampin Up is Butterfly Basics and I’ve been dabbling around with the new Watercolor Wings Bundle (stamp set with matching Bold Butterfly Framelits).
Started with a card base of Sahara Sand and layered a variety of images from the Butterfly Basics stamp set and the type looking circles from Kinda Eclectic. Next using the Watercolor Wings stamp set I stamped the butterfly using daubbers and ink pads – Crushed Curry, Watermelon Wonder & Elegant Eggplant for coloring. Used the new Bold Butterfly Framelit first, then die cut a Crushed Curry butterfly from Butterflies Thinlits, matched them up and glued them together. Butterfly is attached with glue dots and rhinestones add a little bling. For something different I stamped Happy Birthday vertical instead of horizontal and added a rhinestone.
Thank you for stopping by today, hope you liked the card. For more product information or to place an on-line order for supplies please click on any of the images below. Have a great day, Craft On!
