Pop Up Twister

The glorious weather has claimed my time this week plus the new Garage door was fitted Monday but we had to call them back in yesterday for a minor fault to be fixed.
Here are my last two cards to show you for the current Butterfly Challenge #102.

First card is a Pop up Twister card and I followed a really good tutorial by 'The Frugal Crafter' though she used a Karen Burniston dies-twist panel pop up mechanism whereas I made my own version up.

Here I have used Vermillion and Vine leaves plus of course my butterfly from the current wheel.
I have used various peg stamps by 'Heyda' to create the border pattern and also a vine leaf stamp that came as part of a wine set from a magazine. Coloured with a combination of different makes of markers. Butterfly is part of a set by 'Kaisercraft' called Texture Butterflies.
 Picture below shows the card partially opened.
 This one shows the card fully opened. There are several versions on You Tube which explain how the mechanism works.  The sentiment stamp was a freebie  from Papercraft Inspirations magazine.
Entering this card into the following challenge:
Double D Challenges #  Butterflies challenge. (I have chosen pink from the mood board).


Second card  uses all seven elements of the wheel.
Butterfly/ Vermillion/Vegas Gold/Violet/Vintage/Vertical pattern/Vine leaves.
The image is called 'Harriet'  by Pink Gem  which I coloured up whilst on holiday quite a few years ago now so the only thing about it that I do remember is that I used Graph'It pens which were all I had at the time. The butterfly stamp is by Kaisercraft and coloured using the 3 colours from the wheel.  Vineleaf  corners were stamped out in olive green ink and coloured in with the same ink and then fussy cut  to look like old picture corner mounts. The vertical pattern was created using the hessian ribbon (which also has vermillion flowers on it) and a strip of old lace from my stash. Sentiment was also from my stash. 

Challenge runs until next Tuesday 8pm GMT. Hope I have given you some ideas.

Two lovely cards, Mrs A. I love the fresh and bright look of the pop-up twister card, a technique I still haven't got round to trying, probably because it looks complicated! LOL! Thanks for the inspiration. Your second card is so pretty and it seems that it was about time that the beautiful image was used. xx
