Hmmm, well no, it’s not spring here in Australia, although the weather has been lovely and warm and sunny, so I guess it has been spring-like, and there are still plenty of flowers in the garden!
“Spring” is the theme for the new challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges – “We should like to see your projects inspired by ‘Spring’, by the celebration of the passing of winter and the coming of new life and all of those wonderful plans you are making for springtime.”
I have made two cards for this week’s inspiration:
This card uses the cute digital image from Bugaboo, along with some pretty papers from my stash.
And my second card uses some of the beautiful papers from the Painted Blooms Designer Series Papers, combined with the sentiment from Butterfly Basics and some small butterflies stamped and punched, makes for a really quick but pretty card. The papers are just so gorgeous, I really didn’t want to cut them up.
Make sure you check out the inspiration from the rest of the Design Team, and please share with us your Spring projects.
This week’s Crafty Boots Challenge is to use butterflies on our projects, so I have! It was a good excuse to use the gorgeous new Butterflies Thinlits Dies – not that I really need an excuse 🙂
My first card uses some of the Painted Blooms Designer Series Papers, which are just sooooooo beautiful. I didn’t really want to cut it up, but if I don’t it will add to my ever growing stash!
I have cut two butterflies, one from white cardstock and then the top layer from the blue watercoloured paper in the Painted Blooms DSP. The sentiment comes from the new stamp set (which is bundled with the dies) called Butterfly Basics.
Then I did some colouring with Blendabilities, and decided to make the coloured image into another card with lots of butterflies 🙂
This gorgeous image is from Art By MiRan, the papers retired a loooong time ago, and the flowers are from the above mentioned large stash of crafting goodies, and of course, the butterfly was another cut with my new Thinlits. Oh, should I mention Faux Stitching?? 🙂 It hasn’t featured a lot recently, so I thought I high time to bring it back!
I hope you like them, and hope they inspire you to join us with your own butterfly creations at Crafty Boots Challenges.
