YoYo cards.

It is time again for the Butterfly Challenge to show a new letter of the alphabet. We only have one letter left to go.
#142 Spin The Butterfly Wheel With Y for YoYo Spinner Card.

  Your 6 elements are:
YoYo Spinner Card/ Yarn/Your Choice/ Yale blue/Yarrow/Yam
+your Butterfly.

N.B. Yes these colours really do exist!!

Yam  = Light orange
         Yarrow  = Light Yellow 

If using please state the element of Your Choice.

Here is my  first inspiration card for you using the following from the wheel.
YoYo spinner /Yale Blue /Yarn/ Butterflies.

Please go to the Tutorials Page on the Butterfly Blog to see how to make a YoYo Spinner element. I have broken it down into easy steps for you to follow.

I have used a free digi paper from Activity Village called Blue and Lilac Butterflies for the design paper background. The spinner element has been made with Yale Blue  cardstock.  The sentiment is by John Next Door from his stamp set ' Swirl Sentiments'.  Butterfly on end of yarn is a SU die punch and the Bakers Twine and pearls from my stash. The Little butterflies were on my desk as outcuts.

My next inspiration YoYo Spinner card uses the following from the wheel.
YoYo spinner /Yarn /Yarrow/ Yam/ Your Choice/ Butterflies.

My 'Your Choice' was to use an embossing folder. 

Background was created using an embossing folder from Crafts-Too  CTFD3103 on pale yellow  (Yarrow) cardstock. The base card is made from Pale orange (Yam) cardstock. Spinner element made using  the yellow and orange cardstock and a butterfly stamp that came as a freebie in a magazine. I created the sentiment in word and printed off. I wanted the sentient and the spinner to do all the talking on this card. 

Last Inspiration. 
As all the prizes for this challenge will be Gift Certificates from CraftsUPrint I will be show casing some of their downloads from their huge range  that I have already purchased. This one is is called Butterfly Decoupage and designed by Dawn Hill. They really do have hundreds to chose from and some very pretty papers. I just put in butterflies as my criteria on the search page and I got a hit of 5,000 images!
I lost a day just looking through them all  and some might have inadvertently  fallen into my basket!!

I used white cardstock for my base card and layered up with yellow cardstock. The sentiment is part of the download. The pearl is from stash. I actually purchased this image way back in May 2014 and it fits the colours perfectly for the current challenge. 

Hope I have inspired you to play along.  The Spinner is really fun and very easy to make. Challenge is again for three weeks. Only one more letter to go to get to the end of the alphabet. 

Do you want to play again with a fresh set of card shapes (I have loads already sorted out)  or do you want me to find another theme?  Let me know in the comments below.

Brilliant cards Mrs A - I'd been wondering what you would come up with for the letter Y :) Very clever. I think I can guess what Z will be.

Two fun butterfly cards that spin. That is so fun. I like the butterfly paper and the embossed backgrounds. The spinner is delightful. The Butterfly Decoupage is just gorgeous. I can't tell if those are frames added over the image or just part of the paper but I love that design element.

Kathleen said...

Three lovely creations, super colours and super background papers, especially like the papers o the first card. Super design on the last card and great colours.
