Watercooler Challenges #19

Spring is in the air here in Iowa.  For the next week or more we are going to be having wonderful temperatures which I'm sure are going to start the Crocus and other signs of Spring popping their little heads up to tease us with promises of pretty colors and beautiful flowers.  I, for one, can't wait until all signs of winter are gone.  I think as I get older, I enjoy winter less and less.

Today's card uses the Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Sheets which is one of the new Sale-A-Bration products.  I love it!  There is so much you can do with it.  Before I glued it to the So Saffron card base, I flipped it over and burnished some of the design.  When you do that, it turns the vellum white and makes for a very pretty look.  The butterflies are from the new Nature's Perfection Stamp Set, also a new Sale-A-Bration product.  I stamped them on vellum using StazOn, flipped them over and colored them using my Stampin' Write Markers to mirror the colors from the inspiration photo.  I popped them up with dimensionals.


Stamp Sets:  Butterfly Basics (sentiment), Nature's Perfection; Ink:  StazOn Black; Stampin' Write Markers:  Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, Perfect Plum, Rose Red, Wild Wasabi; Card Stock:  Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Sheets, So Saffron, Vellum; Accessories & Tools:  Elegant Butterfly Punch, Pearl Basic Jewels, Adhesive Sheets (Scrapbook Adhesives), Dimensionals, Stampin' Pierce Mat, Simply Scored Stylus

  1. Wow! Looks like you incorporated more from the inspiration than you realized. Look at those lovely lines on the flowers! Your vellum effect is really interesting. I think I need a tutorial to understand what you did though, lol. The butterflies are perfect. Thanks for accepting my challenge, Marsha!

  3. Hi Marsha, wonderful card with such nice, bright colours from the inspirational photo. I have to get one of those SAB stamp sets now that I've seen it in action. I have the vellum stack so I'm halfway to being able to CASE your inspirational card.
