There is one more week of the Butterfly Challenge which finishes on the 15th of September. I had loads of small pieces of paper left over from making the first 3 Curtain Shape cards so for my inspiration for you I am showing 2 cards I have made with just those pesky scraps.
Card 1 is using the 3 colours from the wheel plus my butterfly .
I simply stuck strips of the left over design papers and plain card stock on a piece of scrap paper which was about 2" x 3". once it was filled up I die cut the butterfly out which is 'Whidbey' by Memory Box and the flower stamp is called Camellia from Thirsty Brush & Co. My lovely blogging friend Kanda was having a clear out of her stamps and very kindly asked me if I would like this one. The sentiment was in the same set and it came with a matching die cut. Thankyou so much Kanda. I have been watching lots of YouTube videos showing how to use your scraps up and I found this design layout by Elizabeth Hill Rush which I rather liked so this is my version of her card. I added a matching gem to one of the butterflies wings for a finishing touch .
Card 2 is again using the 3 colours from the wheel plus my butterfly .
This time I used a piece of scrap paper that was 4" x 3" and stuck the strips of paper onto it diagonally. Then I die cut the 'Terrace ' butterfly by Memory Box out and then used some die cut sentiments to also cut out the words out. I love the way they have come out so multi coloured. I think I will be doing that trick for a lot of my sentiments in future. I mounted onto plain white card stock and left it overnight as I thought it needed a little extra but couldn't think what. Then as I was clearing up the left over strips I added them on the card and bingo!
