So Suzy Fancy Butterfly

Hi Everyone,

we at So Suzy Stamps are having a big inspiration post today - all the DT girls made cards - you get a glimpse of them on the collage picture:

I thought, this gorgeous butterfly needs some ink - I have only used it once before and it is much too pretty to sit around and collect dust..... I also really like the sentiment - the pretty font and what it says - just great for many occasions!

My stamp supplies:

I started out stamping the butterfly with Versafine ink onto Bristol paper - this ink stamps detail really well and it is my go  to ink for most things.

I generously added water color in yellow and greens

More color and made it drip down

then I thought its too much color and I took some off with a roll of paper towels

Added some more color to the butterflies only

until I was happy with the result. Added some splatters.

Stamped the sentiment onto black card stock and cut a strip of PP.

Added generous amount of Wink of Stella.

Glued it all together - the sentiment is mounted with foam tape. I added two large sequins. they look more green in real live, not blue like in the picture.

Happy Stamping!

You're right, that butterfly deserved ink and color...and you did it perfectly. Love it with the drippy effect and the color you achieved is stunning.

Das liest sich nach viel Arbeit für eine tolle Karte.
ich frage mich, wie du das mit den Spritzern immer so gut hinbekommst. Bei mir gibt es dicke klumpen oder nichts. :-(((
Ich bewundere deine vielfältigen Ideen und die hervorragenden Ausführungen.
Genieß das Wochenende.

You did an awesome job.
Wow! This looks awesome.
Thanks for sharing how it was made. I'm not great at inky stuff,
but I might have to give this ago.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
