Sparkles Monthly Challenge


The Sparkles Monthly Challenge theme is "no patterned paper."

For my card I used a stamp set from Altenew, stamped the image using versamark ink, and sponged Pan Pastels over the stamped images and created a background using the Pan Pastels.

We hope you'll follow our challenge theme of "no patterned paper" and share you cards/projects with us at The Sparkles Monthly Challenge.

The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Three B's


The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge theme is Three B's - Birds, Butterflies, Bees.  Use one of these or all three!

For my card I used the Stampin Up Wonderful Romance stamp set and dies.  The die cut images were colored using Bianyo markers and then layered onto a die cut panel and trimmed around the edges of the panel.  The butterfly is punched from a Stampin Up butterfly punch.

We hope you'll share your "Three B's" cards/projects with us at The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge.
