Crafty Cardmakers and More - #134 - For a Special Woman

Hello Everyone!

It's time for another challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and More! This time around I am going to be the hostess, and I have chosen the theme FOR A SPECIAL WOMAN.  I thought I would sandwich my super greasy steampunk card in between two super shabby feminine creations, just for fun!!

I decided to make a bright spring tag to go on the gift bag that will hold my Mom's Floating Rock Garden, she just loves nature, so the butterfly is for her...the bling was just for me. lol. I can't wait to see what you come up with!


The background was done with DecoArt Lavender paint and a Memory Box stencil. The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations. The frame is cut from Tim Holtz Tag and Bookplates and coloured with Tim Holtz Black Soot paint and DecoArt Zinc paint with a touch of Picket Fence.


I used a Recollections Butterfly stamp and stamped one in DecoArt Americana Lavender and one in DecoArt Crafter's Irish Moss. I fussy cut them out and traced the outline with Star Dust stickles. The Tim Holtz Gumdrop was coloured with Ranger Alcohol ink Meadow. The fancy flourish die down the side is Honeysuckle Vine from Memory Box.


The white filigree leaves are from my new Prima die...YES FAITH, THAT MAKES 806!!! hahaha The little green leaves are from Cheery Lynn Designs. I cut them from a pale green paper and then coloured them with Tim Holtz Bundled Sage and some Star Dust stickles. So shimmery!


The flowers were cut from Joy Crafts 4 and coloured with Tim Holtz Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord and Shabby Shutters. I added some Star Dust stickles here too.



Some pretty gemstones and a butterfly charm to add a little bling. The flower stamp was from the same set as the butterfly. Name unknown, I threw away the package for some strange reason!





I am entering my Mom's tag into the following wonderful challenges:



That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. I read and appreciate every single one! If you have any questions, please let me know.

  5. This is beautiful, I love the lime green and lilac colour combination, it is so fresh and conjures images of spring. Your new leaf dies are working out really well and can you ever have too many butterflies, I think not!

Gorgeous color combination, great textured background, embellishments that are so carefully chosen and perfectly placed! Your flowers are just scrumpdilli-icious, and I CAN NOT believe you fussy cut those butterflies and outlined them with Stickles! No coffee that day???? Can you tell me where you get your flower centers and stamens? I'm having a hard time locating any here. Thank you for sharing this amazing work of art with us! Hugs!
