Some Cards for Challenges

 Hey Friends!!!

I am just popping in today with a BUNCH of cards I created this week. The first three cards I post are for some challenges that I am joining in on. 

All three cards are created by using background stamps and some shading. I did a theme of butterflies for all cards.

My first card I created for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches #627.

I started off  creating the striped paper with an MFT background stamp. I layered it over a piece of paper that was embossed with the Spellbinders Leafy 3D Embossing Folder. I then adhered a piece of foliage that was cut using the Pinkfresh Curvy Foliage Die

I then colored in a Glimmer Butterfly from Birch Press Designs with Copic Markers to adhere over the top of the foliage.

The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions Simple Strips Sympathy. 

Below is the challenge badge for Freshly Made Sketches #627.

My next card I created I using Tuesday Morning Sketches #748 as the jump off point. 

The background of this card was stamped using the Striped Background by MFT Stamps. I stamped it both ways to make the grid. I layered a die cut Fancy Frame by Sunny Studios.

The foliage behind the Simon Says Stamp Layered Cosmic Butterfly was die cut from the Flowing Foliage Die Set

The butterfly is colored in using Copic Markers and the sentiment is from Taylored Expressions.

The last card I created I used the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #561 as my inspiration. This was a sketch challenge and the challenge badge is below.

Again, I used a stamped paper I created using the Hero Arts Acanthus background stamp and Twilight Pawsitively Saturated Ink from Simon Says Stamp for my background paper.

I used an arch instead of the rectangle where I placed the butterfly. The arch was die cut with Spellbinders Arch Dies and embossed with the Spellbinders Mandala Blooms

Instead of a banner, I used the Curvy Leaves Die Cut from Pinkfresh Studio. 

The script strip is a paper I created using Simon Says Pawsitively Saturated Ink. The colors I used were Morning, Twilight and Galaxy. The script was created using the Hero Arts Script Bold Prints.

Want to see more butterfly sympathy cards? I am involved in a blog hop over on Instagram. It is called Create it 3 Ways Challenge. You make three cards using a theme with any products you want. This is my second month and have chosen to use the same colors, paper I created and butterflies. If you want to see my cards, here is the LINK.

Well, that is all from me today. I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!
