ctd #331, cmcc #60 and time out

Hey friends!!!  Popping in with a couple of cards for some color challenges:  Color ThrowdownColour Me...!  and Time Out - Rock Around the Clock.  The other day I finally received my Stampin Up! Butterflies Thinlets dies.  I bought them as a bundle with the Butterfly Basics set, but unfortunately the dies were on backorder... so I had to wait.   But, the wait was worth it... the dies are gorgeous!!  My first card showcases two of the dies.


I absolutely LOVE how the first card turned out!  This one is for Color Throwdown.   I started by stamping two images from Butterfly Basics using light pink and light green inks.  I die cut the large butterfly from some Teresa Collins Family Stories patterned paper.  The smaller butterfly was stamped in kraft ink and then die cut with the matching die.  I adhered the two butterflies together and then added the little pink clothes pink and the light green baker's twine.   I adhered the butterfly over the stamped images and then added the sentiment and some light pink sequins.


My second card is kinda fun and funky and is for Colour Me...! and Time Out.  I stamped a clock image from the Hero Arts set All the Time using Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise & Calypso Coral.  I then added the little clock hands and the sentiment in black.  Some yellow baker's twine was added and then the piece was mounted on a light yellow card base.

Have a happy day...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white, yellow and kraft; Stamps:  Hero Arts, Stampin Up!; Dies:  Stampin Up!; Inks:  Stampin Up! and Memento; Patterned paper:  Teresa Collins; Sequins:  Lawn Fawn; Baker's Twine:  The Twinery

Two really awesome cards, Rosemary! I must admit that the butterflies are my favorite...so elegant, and I love how your stamped flower peeks through from behind them! Beautiful color combo, too and one of my all time favorite cards from you :)
I also love how you stamped the clocks on your second card! Fabulous CAS design and your twine bow is the perfect touch!

Hello Rosie,
I have to agree with you the butterfly card is a stunner...we all love butterflies on our cards, I am no exception.
The Clock card is fabulous, I love the uniqueness of the design and of course the palette is so warm and friendly. A wonderful change from the grungy looking clocks that are so popular.
