Crafty Boots Challenges mid-challenge reminder: Butterflies and Bees

Hi and welcome back to another fab challenge over at Crafty Boots Challenges. The challenge this fortnight involves one of my all-time favourite things; butterflies! Despite being rushed off my feet with sick kids, there was no way I was missing out on this challenge, so here is my card, which took the better part of a week to put together (sad, right?!)

I don't usually like spruiking my own cards, but I am so happy with how this turned out! The background has been put together using Dylusions sprays on watercolour card. The sentiment is from Stampendous, and my butterfly die-cut is of course, from my trusty Stampin' Up! framelits. The card base and cardstock used is Stampin' Up! Bermuda Bay.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I'll be back next week for yet another great challenge :)

Crafty Boots Challenges - Monochrome MID CHALLENGE REMINDER

Hi, and welcome to the tail-end of a great challenge over at Crafty Boots Challenges. This fortnight we have been sharing and loving on all things monochromatic! Here is my card for the challenge

I was fortunate enough to be able to demonstrate how to make step cards at my local craft group over the weekend, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to use this challenge to make some samples PLUS make some Mother's Day cards which we are celebrating this weekend in Australia. Talk about killing multiple birds with one stone!
I have made a side step card using a great tutorial on YouTube by Stamping with Dawn. She is such a clever lady, and one of my absolute FAVOURITE YouTubers, so be sure to check her out!
The materials used on this card are all Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Whisper White, Blushing Bride
Ink: Blushing Bride, Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps: Flowering Flourishes, Blessed Mother, Petite Petals
Tools: Bold Butterflies thinlits, Petite Petals punch, Scalloped Oval punch, Polka Dot embossing folder
Embellishments: Basic rhinestones
Thanks so much for stopping by!
