Joans Gardens - Weekly Card Challenge












Here is another card I did for Joans Gardens Weekly Card Challenge. I just received BoBunny's newest line called Gabrielle. This is one of my favorite collections yet because I love butterflies. I started off with bronze metallic paper cut 5" X  7", I layered one of the BoBunny Gabrielle paper called "Fairest"next after I sponged Burnt Sienna around the edges. Then I used Coredinations aqua glitter cardstock on top then a piece called "Unwritten" from the BoBunny line and sponged Deep Lagoon, Burnt Sienna on on the edges. I took a paper doily and spritz it with Tattered Angels using Bronze, Tiger Lily and Turquoise Blue. I took bronze metallic paper using Spellbinders Curved Rectangles cut and embossed  the second largest die. Applied Molasses smooch ink around the edges. Took Spellbinders labels 10 and cut out 1 label using BoBunny's Gabrielle Cut outs. Applied Deep Lagoon and Burnt Sienna over the paper. Stamped saying from JustRite 'Nature's Nested Sentiments' using Celadon Pigment ink and embossed with Black EP on Shimmery White paper. Applied Burnt Sienna and Deep Lagoon to color white paper. Applied Ocean Soul smooch ink around edges. Attached Green metallic ribbon as shown and added I butterfly trinket with rhinestones from the Gabrielle Jewels line. Cut out a butterfly using Butterfly Combo die from Provo Craft. Mixed Deep Lagoon reinker with Stampin'Up Frosted White shimmer paint and applied to bronze metallic butterfly.

Instructions: Finished card is 5" X 7"
I used metallic black paper as the base. Cut the black/gold paper 4 3/4" X 6 3/4" and the brushed gold paper 5" X 7". Took the gold paper and placed in the bamboo embossing folder. Ran it thru the big shot machine. Took my craft knife and cut around the leaves leaving a little halo. I took this idea from the following blog http://donnamundinger-popsicletoes.blogspot.com/search/label/Cuttlebug?updated-max=2010-11-03T12%3A23%3A00-07%3A00&max-results=20.Took the largest label 13 and wiggle it inside of my cut lines then ran it thru the big shot. Cut it down 4 1/2"X 6 1/2" attached it to the black/gold paper. Then took the next size label 13 and made a window. Cut out an even smaller label 13 of the black/gold paper so it would fit in the window opening. Cut out lacey circle out of brushed gold to place on top of the black/gold. Stamped saying from JustRite Birthday Stamps using black tuxedo memento ink.
Colored embossed areas using Tuxedo smooch ink. Place peel offs as shown colored them using Green Apple smooch ink for the leaves. Used Gold Lame and Siren Smooch inks for the fan by blending the red into the yellow. I use the Pink and Moonlight for the flowers. Add Gold pearls where indicated.

Very Exciting News to Celebrate!!!

I just found out this past weekend that I'm one of  the semi-finalist for the Heartfelt Creations Design Team. I was an oops they had left me off the Heartfelt Blog on Wednesday morning when I went to check to see if I had made it. I was really feeling discouraged until Saturday while checking my email. I received an email from Emma Lou Beechy stating how sorry she was when she found they had left me off their Blog. They even fixed the mistake; look here: http://www.heartfeltcreations.us/blog Now having been disappointed I'm finding myself  to be over the moon at being one of the lucky ones chosen. Why because I love their stamp and they  have matching dies to go with them.  Heartfelt Creations is one of the few companies that  Spellbinder makes dies to match their stamps. How cool is that! Now I'm waiting for a box to arrive and then hopefully in April I will be one of the few lucky members of the Heartfelt Creations Design Team. Keep your fingers cross for me.
Good Luck to the rest of the contestants!!Pin It Now!
