Butterfly Thinking of You Card

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a card using some new stampin' up stash I adore! I began with a panel of white stamping card as my focal piece. I cut a butterfly out of the middle of this with my stampin' up punch which matches the Papillon set I used for my butterfly stamp. I then stamped a butterfly on either side of the negative space left by punching out the butterfly. Above the butterfly shaped hole I stamped 'Thinking of you'. Next I added a panel of paper, placed to show the pattern through the hole in as close to symmetrical as I could manage-like real butterflies!
I then mounted this panel on stampin' up coredinations card. I covered my card blank in coordinating paper mounted onto coredinations card, then placed my focal panel and matching ribbon.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafty Creations: Winged Things
Fan 'n' Funky Challenges: Ribbon

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
