I don't normally post on my blog this often, but I can't seem to stop making cards these past few days, and wanted to share them! It must be because my vacation ends on Tuesday, and I know I won't have as much time to create.
I picked up some new goodies recently and one item was a 6x6 paper pad from Bo Bunny called, Gabrielle Collection. I was inspired by the pretty color combination of peaches, pools and browns, and created three cards with these colors in mind.
This first one uses a striped paper that already had the swirls and little banner, which was perfect for my sentiment. The butterfly was cut using the Vivienne Butterfly die cut from Memory Box - (just the negative space here.) I stamped Hero Arts' Old Letter writing behind the butterfly, before adhering the striped panel to the card.
For the next card, I used the butterfly die cut from the striped paper, adhered it onto a piece of textured, white cardstock and cut around it. I LOVE this butterfly die!
The clear embossed vines are from another new stamp I bought called, Floral Vine Background from Hero Arts. The smaller butterflies were punched from the same paper pad, and the card base was cut from Designer papers, also from Hero Arts. I must say, these designer papers are fabulous! So nice and thick - perfect for the base of a card!
My last card uses the same color combo (without the brown.) Again, the card base is from a Hero Arts designer paper, and so is the lighter, pool colored strip. I stamped the Classic Tea Flower after inking it with Distress Markers. Then I added a bit more shading with a couple of Copic Markers.
I love when Rosemary uses double scallops like this card here! Thanks for the inspiration, Rosie!
Sorry for the long post. I usually like to only share one card per post, but since these three cards have similar colors, I thought I should show them all at once.
Thanks for your visit - hope you're enjoying the weekend! :)
