New Home

Good morning!  It’s hard to believe that January is quickly coming to a close!  This is my last inspiration project for the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook challenge this month, with the theme of “New Beginnings”.  The blog has the same theme, so if your project qualifies for one, it qualifies for both (Facebook challenge requires that you use an image by Ching-Chou Kuik) – double the chance to win some of these gorgeous images. But HURRY, time is almost out!!

I used the Butterfly from this set for my New Home card.

  Since the DT was challenged to use 2 different ribbons on their project this week, I colored the image with my Copics to match the butterflies on some ribbon that I have had for forever (2 spools yet, LOL).  I was super happy that I managed to match the colors up as well as I did.

My other ribbon choice was just a simple ivory satin.  The blue background paper looked a bit “blah”, so I rummaged around in my stamps and found the squiggles that emulate the postal mark on the ribbon and stamped and embossed them with clear powder and ink.  The die cut and stamped/embossed sentiment are from Sugar Pea Designs (a prize I was lucky enough to win in a challenge in the past year).  An orange mat before attaching this to a card blank finished the card off 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following challenges:

A Gem of a Challenge – Week 1 ATG

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge – #90 “New” (Fresh Start)

Aud Sentiments Challenge – #219 ATG with a Sentiment

Through the Craft Room Door – ATG for the week of Jan. 22

The Butterfly Challenge – #115 Spin the Butterfly Wheel with the Letter “Y”   I used Yale Blue and Your Choice, which was Heat Embossing, and, of course a butterfly 😉

  2. Hello Susan,
    Thankyou for coming and spinning the butterfly wheel with me this week. This card is beautiful. I hadn’t realised that Ching-Chou kuik did images of just butterflies. I love the colour combination you have used. Hugs Mrs A.
