Hi Stampers! I’m back today with another color challenge from the Pals Paper Arts.  This week the combo really was a challenge for me.  We were given Night of Navy, Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush.  This was NOT a color combo I would have pulled out on my own.  But, 6 cards later, I finally have something to show you…


This card starts out with a Night of Navy card base 4.25″ x 11″, scored at 5.5″.  Next was a Whisper White layer 4″ x 5.25″ adhered with snail adhesive.  I used Butterfly Basics stamp set and I stamped the fern in Cucumber Crush ink and the sentiment and honeycomb in Night of Navy ink.  I then stamped the flower butterfly in Watermelon Wonder ink onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock and cut that out on the Big Shot with the matching framelit.  I used the medium size butterfly from the Butterfly Thinlit dies to cut a butterfly out of Watermelon Wonder card stock.

Stampin’ Tip: I used the big shot to cut out the detailed butterfly using the medium butterfly thinlit.  To be sure I got a really good cut, I ran the “sandwich” through the big shot 3 times.  I then used the paper-piercing tool to punch out all the little pieces and remove the butterfly from the die.  “Paper-piecing tool – it’s not just for piercing anymore”.

I adhered the medium butterfly to the front of the card with monoadhesive and the smaller butterfly on top of that with a half of a dimensional.

I hope my card inspires you to break out stamps and ink and play along with us over at Pals Paper Arts.

Happy Stamping,
