No Ordinary Card

Hello Everyone,

I am sharing with you today a card I have made in response to a challenge from my Stampin Up Demonstrator (Jane Norrish). Jane sent me the materials used in this card and I had to create something with them.

At our September Papermates meeting our creations will be judged, but I couldn’t wait to share with you all what I’ve made…


The only thing Jane didn’t supply was the colour I’ve used on the stamped images. Twinkling H2O’s look rather awesome I think. I had two flowers and cut some of the petals off one of them and layered it up on a dimensional.

These images are possibly from the new Stampin Up catalogue that is due out in September. I’m sorry I won’t know what the set is called until my Papermates meeting when all will be revealed to me.


I’m so pleased with the results, especially on the butterflies,  I’m sure Jane won’t mind if I enter it in challenge or two here first. I had trouble with the antennae on the butterfly and ended up using a little twine behind them instead of fussy cutting them.
Sir Stampalot’s August Challange is for Whatever I Fancy, I think this card is pretty fancy so in goes an entry there.
Anything goes for the PCJ Challenge – that would be Paper Crafting Journey by the way.
Craft us Crazy is also doing Anything goes.

With some awesome prizes all round, you gotta be in it to win it Right?

I’ll be back in a little while with some gorgeous hand made flowers on a card I’ve cased from a magazine.

Ciao for now Smile
