Flutter By Wednesday's #109

The challenge for this week is from team member Kimberly! She challenged us to use paper piecing on our creations along with your butterfly, fairy or angel. If you are unfamiliar with paper piecing, there is a tutorial ages ago on it that you can view HERE.

For this beautiful butterfly fairy, I punched the wings, cut them in half, behind the purple wing I traced (instead of stamping) the purple wing onto a vanilla piece of card stock and cut along the traced lines to make the background.

Whimsical Wednesdays DDSC35

This is one of my favorite images from  ©ching-chou kuik's Soft Goth Night, she reminds me of my daughter Victoria,  isn't she BEAUTIFUL?

Sweet Pea Stamps range from whimsical to artistic. The images are designed with incredible details and are tiny works of art that can be colored and used with unlimited possibilities.  They have an amazing collection of images from three talented fantasy artists: Ching-Chou Kuik, Elaine Cox, and Lisa Victoria. Take a moment to check out the Sweet Pea Stamps blog.

Thanks to young Kyah, daughter of team member and our illustrious team coordinator Jacquie. What a FUN and interesting sketch! This girl ROCKS!

Be sure to check out the DIEDRICH DARE Blog for all the details, and a special thanks to Lynette and also the Daredevil Randi,  for setting this up! Make sure you play along using DDSC35 if you upload to an online gallery and don’t forget to link your card or project back to Mr Linky on the Whimsical Wednesdays blog.

Zippidee Layouts

Here they are!  I just love this paper from CTMH "Zippidee", It is perfect for circus, carnivals, fairs, birthdays and of course Disney pictures.  There are a total of 6- 12 x 12 layouts and the best part about it, it's it just cost $20 to assemble all the layouts and I still have a lot of paper leftover to make a couple more layouts.  YIPPIE!!  Just below is the first set of layouts, which fits 5 pictures.
For this layout I used the Disney Cricut Cartridge "Mickey Font".  CTMH clear buttons, Zippidee Fanzy Fuzz, Black grosgrain ribbon, black hemp and white brads.
This is my favorite layouts of this set... For these layouts I used the "On Target" chipboard dimensional elements and colored it in black, "Stars" chipboard dimensional elements and colored in honey, then I spayed them all with "Glimmer Mist" by Tattered Angels in Gold,  again the Zippidee Fancy Fuz, Sparkles in squares and Bitty Sparkles.

In this set of layouts; again the Disney Font Cricut cardtridge, black, red and white brads, Twill ribbon, Boom! B1354 Stamp Set, D1425 Thrill Ride Stamp Set, Bitty Sparkles and I used CTMH's new 1 1/4" Circle Punch to cut out the perfect circles for the fire works.  I also used the new punch to cut out the perfect size circles for the background of the clear buttons used on the first set of layouts.
I think I will make some cards with my scraps from these layouts with CTMH's new Clear Cards Z1309.  I hope you can stop by again in a couple of days to take a peek at cards.
