Shaped Cards for House of Cards

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!

It's the 1st of the month and that means it's time for a new challenge at House of Cards...


While I'm usually able to visualize a creation within seconds of seeing the image, or reading the design brief, I don't mind admitting that this one gave me brain freeze! What??? There are TONS of possibilities with it, but nope. I was stuck!

My immediate thought was an easel card, but because I don't have any larger shaped dies and squares and rectangles are out, that was a no-go. Or so I thought, until I realized there is no size mentioned. Yep, THAT was the light bulb moment for me. Within minutes I reached for a couple of my favorite Stampin' Up! products...


I LOVE these miniature easel cards and hope you do too?

Card: Lost Lagoon, Whisper White and Silver Foil
Ink: Soft Sky, Pool Party and Tempting Turquoise
Stamp set: Watercolor Wings
Tools: Bold Butterfly Thinlits and Butterfly Framelits
Adhesive: Snail and Adhesive Sheets (retired)

Challenges...
January/ February at MHK Designs
#214 AAG at Pixie's Snippets Playground
#236 Freestyle at HIMCR

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

I love these little butterflies, perfect subject for an easel card as it looks like they're flying.

I would never thought of using the butterflies in that way! BRAVO- thinking outside the box. I am way to concrete sometimes!

Leslie said...
