More Penny Black Flowers

I have been loving the new PB flowers - this one is so fun to color.  I used Copic markers here.  The butterfly was die cut from that sparkly paper that I have been using with a Penny Black die.  I added pearls for its body.  I used a Cuttlebug border embossing folder for the side of the card.

MB Butterfly Challenge - Another Gold BF

I created another card with my favorite MB butterfly die set this time using gold for the top layer and PaperTrey Aqua Mist card stock for the body.  I adhered the butterfly to PaperTrey gold patterned paper with foam squares.  This is my 3rd submission to the Memory Box Challenge #1: Butterflies.

Memory Box Butterfly Challenge - Hello Friend

This is my second submission to the Memory Box Challenge #1: Butterflies:

This butterfly from Memory Box is an oldie but goodie!! It is my favorite butterfly die set from Memory Box.  I cut the body out of gorgeous glittery papers from Michaels that my friend Georgia turned me on to!!  I then die cut the top cutout layer from black card stock.

Butterfly Challenge at Memory Box First Submission

I love this Memory Box butterfly die that I just bought when I was with my stamping group in Des Moines a few weeks ago.  I blended distress inks on a white card base and then layered this die cut gold metallic paper on top with foam tape.  I left room for a greeting once I know what I will use this card for.  I think it will make a great 50th Anniversary card.

Another Fusion and Coloring Challenge Card

I had to make another card for the Fusion Challenge since I loved both the photo and the sketch. I fused the two together and just flipped the sketch by placing the butterfly on the lower right hand corner.  I stamped the Stamplorations gerbera flowers with Memento London Fog ink and colored them in with Copic markers.  I then used two Impression Obsession butterfly dies and popped the butterfly up with foam squares.

I created this card for a few challenges:

The Card Concept:  I guess I'd call this style Mixed Media or Clean and Layered.

Just Us Girls:  Stacked die cuts

I heat embossed the Stampendous butterfly with Hero Arts White embossing powder onto white card stock.  I then blended various distress inks over the butterflies for an emboss resist.  The sentiment is a die cut from Winnie & Walter.  I cut a few and stacked them for the dimension.

I used my friend Georgia's Hero Arts stencil to create this card.  I colored in the stencil openings with Distress inks and a dauber.  The sentiment is also from Hero Arts.

When I saw the new Fusion challenge I couldn't believe how this card is perfect for the photo inspiration part:
