Butterfly congratulations card

Unstampbelles' have a new challenge for you to try.

#103 August:  Good News baby card; or any form of Congratulations  - a clear scan; a pregnancy confirmed; an educational achievement; a new job.........

                TWIST BUT you must make your own background.

Perfect for those who like making their own backgrounds.

I made a card.

I had previously made an a4 sheet of white paper into a purple and green inked creation for another project.  I had some left over so it was perfect for this challenge.

I used a pretty teal colour card to back.

I cut it into 4 rectangles and then used a ruler and a purple pen to create a border on each one. I also added one green dot in each corner to finish it off.  I had a beautiful butterfly that matched perfectly.  A congratulations sticker and I was done.

Easy.  Your turn. I look forward to seeing your project.

CRITERIA - Feature things that fly in some way

I've used the colour scheme.  The elements that fly are two birds, a butterfly on the tag and a dragonfly.

I really like how this turned out. What do you think?

Hello there,

Here is my DT example for Archiscraps.  The challenge is:

AUGUST- Use colours plus a clock and some gold somewhere.

Here's my layout.

Image may contain: 1 person, indoor

I've added vertical circles like on the building (punched from gold cardstock, a die-cut clock and used only the colours in the picture.  I've done a mirror image of the shop in the photo. Where the building is black and there is a circle entrance, I've used a lighter colour background with a black circle to highlight that feature in the photo.

Birthday card - stamped

Here is a design I would not normally have made.  It is a card sketch for the Stick It Down challenge this month.

July Card Sketch

It was quite fun to make. I used derwent pencils to colour in the stamped images.

Castaway Bay

I've scrapped a page using some fun pictures from our day at Sea World a few years back.

This is for a challenge at Soul Scrappers where you needed to use trees.

Here is my page.

I thought it would be really interesting to put everything on an angle for this page.  Why not?

I've used Kaisercraft Peace and Joy/Elation pp for the background paper. Who says Christmas collections can't be versatile?

Then I've used Kaisercraft's 6 1/2" Sandy Toes paper pad a few times. I chose two of the papers and put them one atop the other. These are separated by "blob" washi tape. I didn't name it.  It looked like water to me.  I've used a journal box from that pad too.

I used 2 Creative Memories die cut palm trees and some water splash stickers.

Embellies I've added are a Chipboard anchor and chipboard cloud, some twine and some great brads by Simple Stories "You are Free" collection.  More Simpel Stories for the Alphas and stickers from the Good Day Sunshine Collection.

Unstampabelles' July challenge - double page spread


It's time for my DT take on the newest Unstampabelles' challenge,

#102 JulyCelebrating Relationships - Relationships aren't just about what happens in your love life! Most important relationships do involve feelings but don't involve any romance, for example with family, friends and teachers.

           TWIST : work in pairs or have a pair of things somewhere in your work. Has to be about a positive relationship

Background paper is double sided, have used both sides for my double page spread. They are from an old Kaisercraft collection called Lush.
Two photos have two people and both of those photos have been double mounted.
Two flowers on left page, plus two circular embellishments on each page.
Also two grey sticker spots on each page.

Don't forget - don't use stamps.
Start creating.
