Vertical Butterflies

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Today's card was inspired by one of the recent challenges at Mrs A.'s Butterfly Challenge, where the theme was "vertical," and indeed I created the card during the challenge, but am waaay too late to enter it.  OOPS!  But the center backing panel and all those butterflies were a great way to make a tiny dent in my scrap drawer!


Here's a close up of the dimension...

Card: SU's watercolor (I'd intended for the natural lines in the card to add another vertical element, but cut the panel the wrong way!), Rich Razzleberry and Soft Sky
Tools and embellishments: Sue Wilson's Finishing Touches Cascading Butterflies, and CE pearls

Challenges...
#307-308 AG at Pixie's Snippets Playground
AG at TTCRD
#326 Super Scraps Saturday at HIMCR

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

The real almost-winter waters might be getting a little choppy, but there's nothing rough about those in today's creation...


Your eyes aren't deceiving you, I have extended my favorite noble ornate square die for the base layer, and created faux nesties for the smaller layers.

Tools and embellishments: Sue Wilson's Noble ornate pierced squares, Marianne's Creaties tiny tall ship, and CE pinpoint waves embossing folder

Butterfly Twisted Easel

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

For today's card I've used a number of butterfly die cuts that were cut months ago, before my mojo disappeared and I've teamed them with a newer favorite.


And here it is open, where you can see I added the topper directly to the easel without backing it...

The noble square die makes it relatively easy to create the twisted base, and I've used the central square for the stopper.

Card: SU's thick whisper white and smoky slate
Tools and embellishments: Creative Expressions Butterfly Circle dies, Sue Wilson's Noble Ornate Pierced Squares (the stopper is the central die), and rhinestones from my stash

Challenges...
#86 A is for Any Shape at Mrs. A.'s Butterfly Challenge (another I've not joined for way too long
#187 AG at Artistic Inspirations
