Watercolor Wings - Happy Birthday


It definitely is starting to heat up in my part of Western Australia! School is back on and I'm looking forward to getting into my normal routine of at least two projects per week! We are in the home stretch now guys, the end of the year is almost upon us!

My card today is based on this week's sketch challenge by Global Design Project . 

Parts of the butterfly's wings were heat embossed with Iridescent Ice Stampin' Emboss Powder.

This week's sketch challenge.

I added some subtle sparkle with the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper - I thinks the soft sparkle of the glimmer paper compliments the Kraft coloured Corrugated Paper beautifully.

My Product List

Hints &Things

  • I use glue dots to adhere my sequins, they fit nicely with Stampin' Up!'s regualar size sequins and I know they will not come off in the post.
  • Lining up greetings is very easy with Photopolymer stamps!
  • Sometimes all you need is a piece of Stampin' Up!'s beautiful Designer Series Paper and a tiny bit of stamping!
  • This card (or a Christmas version of it) is very easy and quick to make! Create a few while you are at it!
Thank you for dropping by!

  2. We are on the home stretch...counting down the days! In saying that though, my daughter goes off to high school next year and I'm too sure if I'm ready for that!!
    Now on to your absolutely EXQUISITE card. WOW Melodie, I love your take on this weeks sketch. Thanks so much for sharing it with us over at the Global Design Project this week. xo

  3. Beautiful card - love the colours!

  4. Mel - the super-thin strips of glimmer paper are genius! I expanded to see how you matched up that paper so perfectly. Love this card - it's a great way to use that large print paper.. I'm so happy you played along with this week's Global Design Project sketch challenge. Thanks!

  5. Mel, I love the burst of leaves coming from the corrugated corner. The stripes and butterfly add just the right balance. Love this. Thanks for joining us at Global Design Project.
