Scrapmaster's Paradise Trends Challenge #8

Scrapmaster's Paradise Trends Challenge #8  is called Fun with Inks.

l wasn't sure exactly what that meant but here is my take on it. This is a very rare card for me... as it is all one layer except the button with twine.

I used SP & Company's Journal This stamp set for the grid background. For the sentiment I use SP & Company's Bold Sentiments I. The butterfly stamp is from Stampin' Up Papillon Potpourri. I used Tim Holtz markers to color the butterfly all the different colors.

I'm thinking of using this for a sympathy card. I actually like how it came out and hope you do also.

Here is a close up of the butterfly...
Thanks for looking!

Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Challenge #139

I just found out that I am going to be a Great Aunt. My niece is having her first baby and I wanted to send her a congrats card. The new Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo Challenge #139 is great for a baby card. They aren't going to find out what sex the baby is so this is perfect 'cause it has the pink and blue in it.

Check out all the great new products that Sami has come up with this month. Just click on the above link. For this card I used the following products:

Stamping Bella: baby carriage bella for the pregnant girl. (I didn't use the carriage)

SP & Company: Happy Banner Stamp Set
                        Big Build a Banner 1 Die Tools

Spellbinder's Labels 18

 I used some stickles on the brown polka dots, her purse, shoes and headband. I probably wouldn't use them on the polka dots if I did it again. Hope you like it!!
