Butterfly thanks

On Thursday evening last week, I was on Instagram and Michele Ferguson (a wonderful cardmaker) started a live IG video. It turned out not to be a cardmaking video, but a video watching monarch butterfly crysalides in her garden emerging into adult butterflies. I was transfixed! I decided to make a butterfly card the next day, and I did!

Rainbow shaker card for Paper Rose Studio

 Today, I'm sharing a rainbow shaker card using products from Paper Rose Studio.

 

I cut the  Heart Confetti Circle die from some white cardstock, and cut the panel down so that there would be a border around the panel on the card base. I masked the edges of my card base before using blending brushes to create a rainbow of Distress Oxide inks on my card base. I removed the masks, added some clear sequins, and then adhered the die cut panel using foam adhesive. I finished with a sentiment from Hello Happy Birthday, stamped onto a banner from the Triple Banner die, and adhered with foam adhesive.

 This is kind of a one-layer card. Except for the fact that it's two layers. Whoops.

Craft Roulette 123

 Today, I took part in the Craft Roulette challenge on YouTube.

The parameters this week were: 

Project: smaller/larger
Colors: blue, yellow, pink and red
Elements: stars
Random: stripes

At first, I found the parameters a bit overwhelming, but after some ideas from the comments section, I got creating! 

I made the rainbow by blending the blue with the yellow and the yellow with the red. I used the pink on the balloon, as well as on the elephant's ear. I used masking on either side of the card (stripes) as well as stripes in a sunburst stencil. I also stamped tiny little stars that came in two sizes (smaller/larger!).

And I made a video!
