simply stampin' challenge 71

Well its Saturday again! 

At this present moment in time I am somewhere in South Carolina! Such fun! 

This week's Simply Stampin' Challenge is a colour challenge and its a lovely bright and summer colour palette this week...

Regal Rose, Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White

Stamp Set: Creative Elements
Ink: Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight, Regal Rose
Cardstock: Whisper White, Regal Rose, Daffodil delight, Baja Breeze
Big Shot: Stripes Emboss, Vintage Wallpaper Emboss, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Framelits
Accessories: Rhinestones

I got a little carried away with this week's colour combo and did and little set of cards using the colours. Its so lovely and fresh I couldn't help myself! Half are stripe embossed base and half are vintage wallpaper. On the little framelit I stamped the florish border, a sentiment and the 3 little butterflies from the beautiful wings embosslit! Final thing was a few rhinestones

Don't you think they've turned out super cute?! I hope you liked them. Head over to the Simply Stampin' blog for the other DT entries and then add your own creation! Can't wait to see them!

Have a great weekend!

  4. Wow - you got a lot of card making in before your trip! The cards look beautiful and would make a gorgeous gift set to give away. Deb x

    1. Thanks! Yeah I was flat out making before I left... and now I am enjoying a break and just relaxing almost craft free! xx

  5. Wow - that's a lot of butterflies! Lovely makes! Hugs, Lesley

    1. Yeah there really were but what I love about this set is they use up ALL the butterflies you get in the little embosslit so there's no awkward ones hanging around the house and eventually driving me crazy so I throw them away! (Such a sin right!?!) xx
