Butterfly Challenge #137 - T is for Tunnel Card


The theme for Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge #137 is T is for Tunnel Card.
 and she gives instructions on how to make one here
This is version 1.


The wheel is as follows:



I have made a card using all the elements.
I started with a green card for the back and first layer of the front. The second layer of the front is a floral paper from 'Bloom' 6 by 6 paper pad from 'crate paper'. This has Thistle, Tea Rose and Teal elements.
I used the green card to die cut two stars to go on the sentiment circle.
Another paper was used from the paper pad in pinks and mauves to die cut the frame around the cut out circle and the butterflies. 
I used twine to make the butterfly antennae.



I will link this to the Butterfly Challenge #137



Happy Crafting!

CCC94 My Milkshake! 

This month's theme is Creepy Cute Cards...

Image may contain: text

I have made a pocket letter using CCC94 and CCC93 from last week...


This comprises 9 ATCs - I haven't put them in the trading wallet as it makes them so difficult to photograph.
Each ATC starts with a rectangle of pink or teal card matted with a smaller rectangle of Designer Paper from 'Bloom' - a 6 by 6 paper pad from 'crate paper'.
I then added the images and sentiments. These were printed, precoloured in the case of the images, on gunmetal parchment . I added a little extra colour using pencil crayons.

These are four of the ATCs:





I then placed all the ATCs together (in a trading wallet).

Sweet and Spooky


This is an inspirational make for the Oddball Art Co Design Team.



Recently the theme for Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge was N for a Never Ending card and she gives instructions on how to make one here. I have added a video at the end of this post with my version.

I really liked this fold - and this is my most recent example.

This one uses the Friday Freebie from Oddball Art Stamps

This one is - CCC93 Sweet and Spooky! 



From the front it opens up as a gatefold to the second view. This then opens up to the third and finally the fourth. Then it opens up back to the beginning...

The card starts off with 4 six by three inch pieces of card. I used purple card for this. I used pieces of patterned paper from my stash to mat each section (6 by 6 paper pad Bloom from crate paper). I then used the pre-coloured image and the sentiment that came with it, printed and cut out to add to the various sections.
These are my four views as I made them...
