Three Five Minute Cards

First a quick reminder - just two days left to enter my Candy Draw!!

This is the paint chip for the current challenge at Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge

The theme is G is for Grape and/or Glitter.
I was looking through my 'bits and bobs' folder
 and the first thing that came to hand was a card blank in grape!!

The stamp set LC Designs Butterfly Flourish was still lying on my worktable so I used it to stamp two part butterflies on a white rectangle and the sentiment. I added a touch of colour with a Burgundy Promarker. I used a toning Stickles to add glitter around the rectangle and the die cut sentiment. This is on dimensionals. Finally I added three butterflies which shine red or gold.

I will link this to the Butterfly Challenge

My next card uses an image from A Day for Daisies
A Gift from the Stars
coloured with Spectrum Noirs and  some gold Stickles.

This was a very simple card - just a white card base,
matted with an LC Designs Falling Daisies paper.
The image was framed with a scalloped circle cut with nesting dies from a piece of scrap DP.

I will link this to Cookie Challenge #38

My third card is CAS - just a white card blank, a triangle of DP,
a die cut using a Craftstash die Apple Blossom A little Bird told me
and a strip of 'Birds on a wire' washi.

The sentiment inside will say 'It's your Birthday!'

I'm hoping this will fit the Less Is More Challenge

Happy Crafting!


  1. You've made some gorgeous cards here Susan. Well, I never knew you could get birds on a wire washi but that's a great way to incorporate the wire theme. That sentiment is pretty lush too.
    Thanks so much for joining the 'Less is More' challenge this week

  3. Super cosmic cards :-D I love the birdy washi tape. Great baby image on that card and super stunning butterfly card - so stylish :-D

  5. Love the baby hanging from the branch.
    I've got some of that washi with the birds on the wire.
    Used it for a card last year. Still have some of it -
    have to get it out and use it again.
    thanks for sharing.

  6. What a beauty you card is . So regal with those shimmery butterflies. I like the way you have added the glitter to form a border. Thankyou for fluttering by my challenge where your card ill be entered into the draw twice. Hugs Mrs A.

  7. Great cards, Susan. That washi looks great and perfect for our challenge this week.
    Thanks for sharing with us.
