Chapel Road Challenge


The last Friday of every month is the Chapel Road challenge. So today starts our new challenge - to use edge punches and the colour blue! Easy peasy, right?

Let me tell you about my card.
1. I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Angle set onto a light blue cardstock. Then I cut it using the Fleur de lis Squares from Spellbinders.
2. Next I cut a plain square frame from darker blue cardstock, and glued it on top of my Fleur de Lis frame.
3. On the same darker blue cardstock, I stamped in blue - so it is a tone on tone effect - the Butterfly Background. I framed this with the Fleur de Lis Rectangle - going back to the light blue.
4. I stamped a large butterfly from the Butterfly Angle set, cut it out, colored it with Smooch inks and shaped it to make it more realistic.
5. I just added ribbon and pearls to complete the card.

We would love for you to come play along with us!

It is the very cute Springtime Collection from Echo Park.

Sparkling Spring at the Beary Scrap

Yay! Spring is finally here. I keep seeing new flowers blooming each and every day - and this makes me very happy! So, I think it seems appropriate that this week the Beary Scrappy gals are not only sharing with you spring creations, but we've also all used the gorgeous German Glass glitter.

I'm so sorry that you can't see this card in person, because the glitter is so chunky and shiny. It really adds such a vintage touch. I used Walk in the Park papers from Echo Park - they looked so great with the glitters. My stamp is from JustRite Stamps and I colored it with Copic markers.

If spring has not sprung in your neck of the woods, don't fret. I'm sure it's headed your way soon. Perhaps making a spring project for our current Birthday Bash challenge would bring it your way.
