Trifold Card

  The idea for this card came from Shelli Gardner (co-founder and CEO of Stampin' Up!™) and can be found HERE. The card base is Crumb Cake and cut 4" x 5 1/4" so it will still fit in an A2 envelope. I used Labels Framelits and Oval Accent Bigz Clear Die to cut the panels using Primrose Petals and Island Indigo. The flower, from the Stampin' Up! stamp set called Fabulous Florets, was water colored using an aquapainter and Stampin' Write™ markers. It is easy to use markers for water coloring and I like the look better. Just  scribble a little with the marker on a plastic lid of some kind, the lid of a plastic stamp case works well, and pick up the color with the aquapainter.

Glittery Butterflies

  I got the idea for this color combo of Sahara Sand and Pretty in Pink after seeing Donna's card here. The butterflies were stamped with Early Expresso ink on Pretty in Pink paper, punched out with the Elegant butterfly punch and glittered with some Dazzling Diamonds™. The layout was from a sketch challenge that I meant to enter but as usual missed the deadline LOL!

Shabby Papaya Collage

    Here is another card made with the Stampin' Up!™ set called Papaya Collage. I embossed the leaves with Wild Wasabi embossing powder on a panel of Summer Starfruit. The butterflies were embossed with Cherry Cobbler embossing powder and cut out. The paper flower was die cut with the Fun Flowers Bigz die using First Edition Designer Series Paper, sponged with some Cherry Cobbler ink and distressed; an antique brad holds the layers together. The card base is Soft Suede. When it is used on the Summer Starfruit paper, the Wild Wasabi embossing powder almost looks like the retired Stampin' Up! color Sage Shadow.

 Well off to bed, I have worked 39 hours in the past 4 days and my everything hurts! I am off tomorrow and I am sleeping in until... well just until I feel like it! LOL!
