Kristina's Color Challenge #56- Butterflies





What a fun card this was to make... I have had a LONG week... This morning I had a great stamp club with a couple a my favorite gals... We had a very unconventional stamp club.. I knew I was having only a few girls over because of all the summer activities everyone had. I decided to ask one of the girls what she really wanted to make or what she wanted to learn. She said I NEED new techniques.. I am getting in a slump. So as I watched Zach splash around this week. The though of Sewing on paper came to mind... When I told her she was so excited... I new she enjoyed sewing and has even brought one of her quilts to show us all.. So voila~ We made a patchwork card using the Bigz Top Note Die by Sizzix.. So fun to just create as we went... Then we concentrated on how to use our scraps and leftover elements... last but not least we learned how to use a layout template... We even found cards in the Stampin' Up catalog and sketched the layout on paper so we could see the layout and concentrate on stamps, paper and elements we already have... Now we can make a Christmas card from what was a Birthday card in the Catalog... I LOVE THE STAMPIN' UP CATALOG it is such a great resource for ideas and inspiration...

Long story short I still haven't picked up all the mess so I used my scraps and used one of the techniques we did in our class this morning... I love how simple this card is and how cool it looks..

Enjoy!
Hugs
Brooke
