CCM DT Card # - Challenge #50 - Butterflies

Hi everyone, sorry I am so late posting this, I am just back from my holidays. Also I will be missing for a few more days as on the last day of my holiday we got a call from my Granny to tell us that my Grandad had just passed away.So I will be going to stay with my Mom for a few days.

The challenge this time at Crafty Cardmakers is Butterflies. So it's a nice and easy one, and if your anything like me, you will have all kinds of butterflies in your crafty stash :) We are sponsored by The Stamp Man and up for grabs to the winner is a £10 voucher! So why not come join us with your beautiful flutterby creations.


For my butterfly card I have used my new stamp called "Daisy with flower bouquet #2" from In2Stamps,
I have paper pieced her dress from dotty paper and coloured the rest of the image with ProMarkers. All of the papers are from the Prima Jack and Jill collection. I used my martha garden trellis punch and a craftwork cards sentiment, and finished off with some butterly peel offs (one coloured in with sakura pens) and some stickles.

Catching Butterflies


I have made this card using a LOTV stamp (isn't he so cute!) coloured with ProMarkers. The papers are from Pink Petticoat.I cut the flower with my cricut and layered a small snowflake punchout as the centre of the flower.I also inked the flower with a little blue chalk ink. The butterflys are peel-offs that I stuck on vellum and coloured with Souffle Sakura pens and then I cut them out.

Crafty Cardmakers DT Card #50 - One Layer Card

This week at Crafty Cardmakers our challenge is to make a One Layer Card. Now the definition of one layer cards is "One piece of card folded in half with no additional layers and minimal embellishments, where the image is stamped or printed directly onto the cardstock." (Definition from Less is More Blog)


Wow....I found this challenge exactly that!! A real challenge, quite scary lol. For my one layer card I started by punching the bottom of a white card with my MS Lace punch. I then ripped 2 long pieces of masking tape in half. I placed the masking tape down in the rough shape of a square and inked the square with my tim holtz ink. Then I used my Kanban stamp in the middle of the square. I made a mat of paper to cover the square and the sprayed over the whole card with pearl shimmer spray. Then to finish it off I added gems to the image and made a border around the square with stickles.
