No your eyes are not deceiving you, I am posting again in less than 24 hours!
I came across this challenge at Color Throwdown where I decided that the unusual colour combo was definitely 'different' and it certainly took me out of my comfort zone. I'm not 100% sure about my card so see what you think.
The colour combo is Basic Grey, Poppy Parade, Very Vanilla and Pumpkin Pie.
Just thought I'd have a quick go at this week's LIM challenge, although these things are never as quick as they seem by the time I've finished deliberating.
I first embossed the label shape using my nesties and then stamped the cute bird stamp (which was a magazine freebie) using SU Night of Navy and the SU sentiment stamp from Happy Moments (discontinued) also in Night of Navy. I finished by giving the bird a tiny clear bling eye which is difficult to see on the pic but just gives it a finishing touch.
I've used my Stampin Up, X cut and Martha Stewart punches again. The leaves and background butterfly are in Stampin Up Old Olive as is the ink. The X Cut butterfly is from my stash and the pearls in the centre of the butterfly are my third green. The sentiment is also SU.
I've been playing with a set of Spellbinder dies which I bought ages ago and have only just released from their packaging (Slap on the wrist for me). I've also used my Xcut butterfly punch and my Stampin Up butterfly punch and also my brand new Martha Stewart leaf punch.
Add some mirri card, ribbon, a sentiment and some bling and Hey Presto!
I was quite pleased with the outcome and hope you like them too.
Yesterday I found this stamped LOTV image that I must have coloured ages ago. I thought the colour combo was a little unusual for me so the chances are I cased it. (Thanks to whoever I cased from). As a result I was a bit doubtful about putting this combo together, but I was quite pleased with the result.
The card, ribbon, backing paper and sentiment are all Stampin Up. The flowers and pearls are Wild Orchid Crafts.
Getting ahead of myself now....I've made my mum's Mother's Day card as I thought I wouldn't have time nearer the day. Not even sure when it is to be honest!!!!
I've used the SU Manhattan Flower embossing folder again but turned it over and glittered in the spaces. Card and ribbon are also SU, the card being the no-longer-available Taken With Teal which I'm so glad I stocked up on.
Yes, I made these at 5.00 am this morning when I couldn't sleep. It brought back memories of crafting through the night, when I was having hospital treatment and couldn't sleep. It's actually a very peaceful time to craft, except for the police helicopter hovering around, that is!
They're both made using the SU Manhattan Flower embossing folder which as you can see I embossed 3 times, cut out and decoupaged. I then used Stickles to outline.
