Butterfly Basics for Mojo Monday #489

Hi Stampin Friends

Just popping in today to share with you a card that was inspired by & entered into Mojo Monday #489 this is the first time I've entered this challenge so with any luck I have got it right.  A friend recently sent me a list of challenges worth looking into and I finally got around to checking them out.  I will be keeping an eye on a few and hopefully will be able to enter as time permits.

Here is my card for today


I have paired up Butterfly Thinlits & Bold Butterfly Framelits to make the Silver Glimmer Butterfly Opaque the DSP is from the Stampin' Up! Neutrals Stack and the sentiment is from Butterfly Basics.

Here is the banner for Mojo Monday that inspired my card

If you live in Australia and want to purchase any of the items I used you can shop with me by clicking on any of the images below.  Head over to Mojo Monday to play along with their challenges today!

Thanks for stopping by today
Happy Stamping!

On to tonights project ....



Tonights card was made initially for the AIM FOR ALASKA Blog Hop and whilst I was happy with it I just felt I could do better and hence this card then became a spare.  Pretty quick and simple layout using the Brick Wall TIEF in Island Indigo paired with Pool Party and a strip of Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper.  The focal square is Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White and Watercolor Paper.  The sentiment comes from Scenic Sayings.

Aim For Alaska Blog Hop - Theme - Inspired By Alaska!


Hi Stampin' Friends

So happy you could join us today .. I am in a special themed hop today for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are in a training program "Aim for Alaska" the brainchild of #1 Australian Demonstrator Kylie Bertucci.

The program aims to provide training, inspiration & tasks focused to push you out of your comfort zone to aim higher and reach out for your goals it includes many opportunities to listen to amazing demonstrators from around the world.

If you would like to sign up for this amazing program CLICK HERE

So onto the hop & my card .. today our theme is Inspired By Alaska! maybe the 
colours, the nature, the animals - whatever you want to take from Alaska.

All I could think of was polar bears, ice & cold weather so I asked my friend Mr Google for a bit more help!  I was totally bedazzled by the colours of the "Northern Lights" (Aurora Borealis).



I've tried to capture the colour of the Northern Lights in my card with some watercolouring.  Now I'm no master of watercolour by any means in fact I can count on 1 hand how many times I've actually watercoloured!  I've used ink direct to watercolour paper and blended with an aqua painter.  Once it was dry I stamped the trees from Lovely as a Tree in Garden Green, the final embellishment touch was the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.

I hope you are inspired by my card and take the time to leave a comment as well as continue on the hop to see what everyone else has created!

Thanks again for stopping by
Happy Crafting

Almost that time of year again!!! 2015/17 In Color Retirement!



Hi Stampin' Friends

If you are familiar with the Stampin' Up! In Colors, you know that we have a set of 5 on trend colors that are refreshed every 2 years, then they retire and are replaced with 5 brand new colors.

Question: So why talk about them now ?

Answer: NOW is the time to stock up on a reinker for your ink pad, on cardstock, designer series paper, and on the ribbon or embellishments you enjoy in these colors BEFORE they are SOLD OUT!
