CAS105 & CCMC136


Two cards to share with you today, and then I hope to be able to share some photos of our WeeInker meeting from Sunday, including project and swaps!  They were awesome! 

On to the first card, the CAS105 challenge from SCS, which was to use Peach Parfait, Pure Poppy, Daffodil Delight and white!  What fun springy colors.  There seemed to be lots of butterflies in the gallery so I hopped on that bandwagon too:


The butterfly outlines from Flight of the Butterfly were heat embossed in White Craft ink and White EB on DPs of the challenge colors and punched out with the Butterfly punch; I also used the opposite side of the DP to punch little flowers with the Itty Bitty Punch Pack flower punch.  I added some pearls and some swirly lines with a needle and my piercing mat:


I just love this card!

My next card uses the Sketch#136  from Create with Connie & Mary:


and some Botanical Gazette DP along with the bird from Nature Walk:


I also stamped Woodgrain on the panel of Botanical Gazette, and did some masking in order to stamp the floral image behind my water-colored bird:


Thanks for visiting today—stop back again soon!  If you need any information about images, papers or ink, let me know!

Hello LeAnne, Both cards are lovely! 2 ??s - What is the measurement of the butterfly card? and how did you make the circle with the bird's tail hanging out? Did you use the Circle Scissor Plus? Thanks so much...Barb

Love both cards Leanne! The butterflies do remind us that spring is on the way as well as that wonderful robin:-) Love the way his tail is popping out of the circle- great job!
