90-Minute Scramble and Lots of Buttons

Hi all,

Hope you had a good weekend! I had the pleasure of hosting another 90-minute scramble on the Hero Arts Flickr sight on Saturday and it was so fun! The theme was "Frame It Up" and I wanted all those playing along to use a frame somewhere on their card. There were some amazing cards created in under 90 minutes! You can see them all here.

I made two cards as examples for the scramble. This first one uses a beautiful chipboard frame I received from my Flickr friend Greta. Thank you, Greta! I thought the Fab Flourish went well with it.




This next one is very simple. Just stamped the Magical Background, added a die cut frame and a butterfly, colored with Copics. So easy. The little white dots on the butterfly are Enamel Accents.




After the scramble was over, I still felt like creating and wanted to use the Magical Background again. I thought it would be fun to see it in red and I had these adorable buttons from Doodlebug Designs. The two just seemed perfect for each other. I used a Tim Holtz edge die cut too.


Well, that's it for today. So glad you stopped by. I love reading your comments and appreciate them so much! Have a great Monday! :)

Barb, your cards are so elegant--I love them all. I didn't get the chance to play along on the challenge because of other commentments, but I am going to try to make a card with some type of frame on it. You take care and God bless.

So lovely Barb - your first card is very elegant! I wanted to join in but it was 6 p.m. and I had to get the evening meal and with fading light I couldn't have taken a photo anyway - but enjoyed seeing the cards. Very nice theme too.

Lovely set of cards for the scramble! I really love the framed chipboards, have always wanted to get some from Tattered Angels, it's on my wish list now that I've seen you use this particular frame.
