Hi everyone! I hope you are doing well and finding ways to relax and create as well! Today I am stopping in to share 3 cards with you! A good crafty friend of mine Deborah @rightbrainart (check her out on Instagram) recently posted a challenge… you choose a stamp set from your stash and create 3 cards with that set. How fun is this…. and she has prizes for the top 3 entries! You have until April 18th to post! Just be sure to tag #3xcardchallenge over on Instagram! Can’t wait to see what you make! I am also joining in on the fun… today I am sharing 3 cards using the new release from Graciellie Design – Change is Coming. Be sure to check this set out – it is BEAUTIFUL! I will share a brief description of each card, reach out to me if you have more questions!
For my first card I used the single butterfly from this stamp set. I was inspired by an image I found on the internet after searching bright colorful butterflies. I colored the image using my zig clean color brush markers. I added pearl gold sparkle embossing powder from WOW to sections of the wings. To create the polka dots on the black section of the wings I used a white gel pen. I used foam adhesive to adhere the sentiment and die cut the panel using a Gina Marie designs die. I used Nuvo Crystal Drops – in Ebony. I used a black piece of card stock on my A2 sized card for the background and adhered it all together.
For my second card I used the half butterfly again. I colored the stamped image using my zig clean color brush markers. I also added sparkles to the butterfly using a sparkle pen. I used a background I had previously created from my stash. I then die cut a circle and used an embossing folder (Jo Ann Fabrics) to add more dimension to my die cut circle. I used glitter paper to create the 3 strips across the bottom section of my card. I chose the sentiment Change is Coming. I added some drops in pink (older Stampin Up Kit), adhered it all together, and my card was complete.
In the above image you will see my 3rd card I created using the Change is Coming set. You can find more details on my previous post from March 20. I hope you enjoyed seeing 3 different ways to use this beautiful stamp set from Graciellie Designs. I encourage you to join in on the fun and create 3 cards using a stamp set of your choice!
