Twofers Challenge #5

Hi Everyone,

here comes once again my last minute projects for the Twofer Card Challenge #5.
The theme is butterfly.
Took some thinking on my part.....


My supplies: 
butterflies: STAMPlorations
sentiment: So Suzy Stamps
congrats die cut: CUTplorations
tiny butterfly die cuts: Memory Box
embossing plate: Papertrey


Not sure if you need much explanation here. I did make myself a stamp from the lacy butterfly die cut and heat embossed it in clear on my sympathy card. I embossed it with Kaleidoscope embossing powder on the congratulations card. So it has that fabulous iridescent shimmer.


Happy Stamping!


Linking up with:
Twofer Card Challenge #5 - butterflies
Simon Says Wednesday challenge - use more than one stamp (sympathy card)
Crafty Friends - "B" is for butterflies (congrats card)
Monochrome Magic - no patterned paper (white card)

Wonderful shimmer on the second card and it looks absolutely beautiful. Elegant first card and great idea to make yourself the butterfly stamp from the die cut x

Zwei wunderschöne und sehr dezente Karten!

The monochrome sympathy card is so full of impact, Cornelia, the imagery is perfect with the sentiment. White on white is always gorgeous ... and with all the shimmer on this trio of butterflies here, it's just stunning! So pleased you made it to our gallery ... thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Hugs, Anita :)

Love all the dimension and texture of both cards Cornelia. The dry embossing adds a special touch. The monochromatic colours work perfectly for your sympathy card with the butterfly aperture.

The shimmer from the iridescent finish on the butterflies of your second card is GORGEOUS! Thanks for playing along with us at Twofer Card Challenge. xx

Could you hear the giant "THUD" from my house. In my book, these are clearly winners. Elegant and gorgeous.

What wonderful sheen and shine you achieved on both your black and iridescent butterflies, Cornelia! Both designs are just scrumptious works of art! I love that you made a stamp from a die cut!! Thanks so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #5! Hugs, Darnell
