Simply Fabulous Butterfly Kisses PP592

by Joanne James22. May 2022 08:00

Today it's Sunday and time for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's the turn of the fabulous LeAnne to host this week and she has my favourite, a sketch challenge for you to work with:


I went simple and bright with today's card and used it as an opportunity to play with some new products - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

Butterfly Kisses - Today's card is all about the patterned paper! I used both a panel of dotted paper and a trio of butterflies that I fussy-cut from a sheet of Butterfly Kisses designer series paper. From the all-occasion Butterfly Kisses Suite, this pretty paper is full of bold colours and patterns - just my kind of thing. The Build A Butterfly Dies co-ordinate with the paper but the butterflies are super-easy to fussy cut by hand too:


New In Colours - The Butterfly Kisses papers feature two of the new in-colours - Parakeet Party and Starry Sky - and I chose to zone in on both of those on today's card. I love the fresh zing of Parakeet Party green and the darker Starry Sky blue compliments it beautifully. I also stamped some tone-on-tone flowers across my blue strip for a little extra detail.

Simply Fabulous - The sentiment on my card is from the 'Simply Fabulous' stamp set. I added another from the set to the inside of my card, along with some of the butterflies from the edge of the DSP pack to decorate:


This was a really easy card to create and is so cheery - I can't wait to make more! It's also perfect for this week's bug-themed challenge over at Global Design Project #GDP343 this week and over at SUO Challenges where they are celebrating birthdays. 

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my Product and 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any.

Here's a quick recap of our challenge rules:
1.  Create a new paper project
2.  Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us and provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge submission.
3.  Please link your card to no more than four challenges, TOTAL.
4.  Have FUN!

Enjoy your day; we are having a quiet one since both of the James Juniors have exams next week so they are doing some final revision as we were all out yesterday either playing sport or at school functions. I'll hopefully be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Such a fun card, Joanne, and great use of the sketch!  I love that Butterfly Kisses DSP, you picked a great mix of butterflies and patterns for your card.  I hope to play with the Simply Fabulous set soon, it was on my first catalog order but I haven't gotten it inked up yet.  Can't wait to play with it after seeing your card!

Well, I think this is one of the few times that you haven't added to my next order...because I already have this bundle. LOL! But now I have some amazing inspiration to ink it up. Such a fun and happy card!
