New Challenge #95 At Glitter N Sparkle

Ohh Wow,
what Hot Hot Hot weather we have been having.
Its beautiful sunbathing weather 
except when you have a newborn baby to look after 
and he wont settle for nap times 

On the plus side my Beloved is having 2 weeks off work,
so yay I will finally get my garden sorted out.
Shh no-one tell him though or 
he might run away fishing instead lol.

Here is my project for this Week:-

The Theme at 
Glitter n Sparkle is:-
Use Some Purple

Our Sponsors this week are:-

Bugaboo who are offering
7 Images from their store

Stitchy Bear Stamps who are offering
a $10 Gift Certificate for their store
for Images from Stitchy, Ike's Art and Hope Jacare Doodles

Di's Digi Downloads who are offering
a $12 Gift Certificate for their store

My project for this week is:-

Butterfly Garden Digi Stamp 
from Hope Jacare Doodles 
at Stitchy Bear Stamps
(one of our sponsors)

To began with I used an A4 sheet of
 Pearlised Purple Card.
(Ross Papers).
Which I folded in half and cut down to measure 
12cm x 16cm.
And decoratively Punched the corners
using the Lace 3-Way Corner Punch

I then printed off the Image on White DC Paper,
and coloured it in 
using my Promarker Pens.

Cool Grey 3

I then Die-Cut it out using the Largest
Majestic Labels Eight

To finish off my card, 
I used Iridescent Mauve Pink Glitter on the Butterflies
and Holographic Silver Glitter on the Leaves
(both from Glitter Magic).
And I added Glossy Accents 
to all the Roses around the Border and to 
the ones on the Ground under the Bush.

  9. Hi, Sam! Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog! I love your card - the image and die cuts are beautiful! Sending big hugs to you too! Hoping to be back at Glitter n Sparkle the middle of August - I sent an email to Trisha over the weekend. Still not feeling very well but I do what I can for the move - it's progressing along and Brian tells me it will be mid-August when we are officially moved. Was really hoping we'd be there by the end of this month but it's not going to happen. But that's okay! We're getting there! I miss the DT and my crafting so much - I did a couple progressive challenge cards last week so I could continue to get the freebies but that's about it. Take care, my friend!
