A Couple of Challenge Cards

 Happy Sunday!! 

I have not felt like doing anything this month so my blog has been slow. Stress has taken my mojo. Wish I stopped spending on craft supplies in the meantime!!

I started back to work last Monday and had a week of professional development. I learned some AWESOME skills in Google, some great ways to engage students via online and trying to take care of ourselves in order to be able to help our students. Tomorrow I go back with students. My schedule is VERY different from last year as our school has gone hybrid. I am actually looking forward to it after being stressed out over it. I decided I am concentrating on a positive mindset. I will do the best that I CAN do.

Letting it go has helped me to get a little mojo this weekend. I actually made a TON of cards-two for some challenges and the rest for an upcoming CAS-Friday release. 

The first card I created I had two challenges in mind. 

I used the Altenew Megabloom Stencil using four different inks and then used a sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Butterfly Blossoms stamp set.

The leaves are the Fine Cut Leaves from Memory Box.

I really love how this card came out. I blended two different pinks, a yellow and orange for the flower. It gave the flower so much dimension. 

I am entering this into CASE this Sketch Challenge #387 and this weeks Color Throwdown #608.

For my second card, I created a card using flowers from The Greetery.

The frame was on my desk and the butterfly is an old Martha Stewart Punch. 

I used Blueprint Sketch to stencil and blend ink for the background. The die used on the white background is from Mama Elephant.

I am entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge-Beautiful Botanicals and Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge-Anything Goes.

Well that is all from me today. I hope you have a FABULOUS day!!!
