Razzle Berry and Pool Party Spectacular Card

I was wishing for summer weather and fun sunglasses when I made this!

I cut 3 pairs of glasses with the My Favorite Things die (On A Whim, Razzle Berry, Basic Black) and glued them together (leaving one layer off the lenses). I dotted a bit of Wink of Stella into the tiny cutouts on the cat eye corners for some shimmer.

Basic Black, Pool Party, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black,  ZIG Wink of Stella clear, die – My Favorite Things, embossing folder Stampin’ Up! (Sizzix).

Sending Best Wishes Floral Card – Ellen Hutson January 2018 Pin-Sights Challenge

I am arriving very late to the party – dangerously close to TOO LATE!

This month’s Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights Challenge is all about lovely shades of purple. Here is the inspiration board:

I was inspired by…the garden photo (top left).

I used Rustic Botanicals to create my garden, and the only unique thing I did was to stamp the little 3 dot stamp 4 times to make the center of the large flower.

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things (You Give Me Butterflies), and I liked how it filled up my white space. The ribbon is, of course, a “thank you” for an order from the Ellen Hutson store.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, My Favorite Things, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Pear Pizzazz, inks – Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lilac (retired), Orchid Opulence (retired), Pear Pizzazz, VersaFine Onyx Black, sequins – Simon Says Stamp, embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl, ribbon – Ellen Hutson.

You Give Me Butterflies Card

This is another sentiment from my new My Favorite Things sentiment set.

The butterflies are all punched from American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim scraps with a Martha Stewart punch (it punches 2 small and one large butterfly at once, if you want 3 butterflies).

I did think, “oh, my, what have I gotten myself into??” about halfway through the gluing process. I am in love with the final card.
