Penny Black Butterfly Garden Spring Cards

Hi friends, yesterday evening I sat down to start my coloring for The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge.  I like to use this challenge to simply play and use stamps that catch my eye, end up in my stash, but never get used for whatever reason.  I absolutely adore the Penny Black Butterfly Garden stamp set and coordinating die cut set!  Every time I do this challenge I pinch myself for not using my stamps more!  ;0

I colored an entire sheet of the images with two colors of Distress Inks: Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar.  For my first card I made a shaker, inspired by a recent Stampin' Up class at my friend Dixie Sue's.   The trick is to align your card front with your card base and cut the window in one pass, ensuring correct alignment when you add your tulle/sequin sandwich.   The center features a tulle window - what fun!  The gemstones are Gumdrops that I won from a Your Next Stamp IG giveaway.

I used the pink cut off from the first card and a SSS Hey Love die for my next card.   And the white cut offs to make a third card.   It was great to get a card trio from one stamping session.

Such eye candy. Those colors are wonderful. And I'm so glad I stopped by. A tulle shaker - what a great idea. TFS.
