CQC #45 - Flight of the Butterfly + BLOG CANDY

It's been awhile since I've done some Blog Candy, so I hope you participate and enter for your chance to earn a fun little gift from me!!!! Read below to learn more!!!

Happy Tuesday to you! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!!! I just love the simplicity of this photo with the butterflies in flight, so I used that as my inspiration for today's card! The Colour Q has an awesome color challenge for you this week of: Regal Rose, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, Early Espresso, and Whisper White! Here's my sample:

Stampin' Essentials Tips:

  • To dress up my Whisper White background, I added a second layer of Whisper White Card Stock and ran the smaller layer through my Big Shot (113439) with the Lattice Square Embossing Folder (119976)! I've always measured and cut my layers to the 1/4" - but now I'm really into the 1/8" size since I can add several other sheets of card stock to my card! The double layering of the same color is kinda new to me too - but I like it, kinda elegant!
  • My sentiment comes from the super versatile, Occasional Quotes Level 3 Stamp Set. This set has a quote or sentiment for every occasion and I just loved the font of the 'Congratulations'. You can earn this set for FREE when you host a workshop and/or catalog order with $500 or more in sales!!!
  • With the return of Wild Wasabi to the Stampin' Up! color familes, we have another incredible shade of green to work with! Green is probably my favorite color ever! All shades! If you want to update your color collection of ink pads, card stock, markers, etc. with just the NEW colors you need, CLICK HERE to download the PDF of the Color Kits Stampin' Up! is offering!
