Tag Archives: Butterfly Challenge


My cardmaking intention for today was to make Valentine cards. For some reason I ended up making a 70’s birthday card instead. The digits are Thickers I’ve had for ages. “Gratulerar” stamp if from Skapa hobby (no longer available), and the butterfly stamp is from Reprint. Both of them designed by me.

I’ve used sketch #314 at MFT Card Challenges for the layout:

I don’t participate in color challenges very often, but this time I did. IN{K}SPIRE_me Challenge #282:

I also submit the card to Butterfly Challenge #69 – Z is for Zero, and Everybody-Art-Challenge #394 – Anything goes.

Thank You

I’m squeezing in a Thank You card inbetween the Halloween cards. For this card I’ve used Graphic 45 papers and a butterfly stamp which I designed for Reprint Artstamps years ago. I’m not sure where the Thank You stamp is from, but it might be Verve Stamps.

I submit this card to Butterfly Challenge #64 – Checkered and/or Cyan (I went for checkered only), and MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #302.





D is for Denim. And Dimension.

Guess what?! I’ve made a card! Yes, you read that right. Last card I posted here was almost a month ago. I had so much fun making this card, inspired by three different challenges:

Butterfly Challenge #58 – D is for Dimension and/or Denim. I found a cotton fabric with denim print in my stash, which was absolutely perfect for this challenge. Then a bit of dimension by using 3D dots under the Grattis stamp, and glueing just the body of the butterfly, lifting the wings up from the card (by the way, I almost always do that when using butterflies).

Shopping Our Stash challenge #262 is to use stitching. I don’t own a sewing machine, and was too lazy to stitch by hand, so I made faux stitches with Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pen.

And then I used the sketch at The Paper Players challenge #305.






The latest Butterfly Challenge was “Q is for Quadruple“, i.e. use four of something. Plus at least one butterfly. I went for four different designer papers and four snowflake stickers. And three butterflies.


I’m in love

Ooooh, how I love the Steampunk Fantasy papers by Stamperia!! I think it might just be the most beautiful papers I have ever seen! With bits and pieces from various of these papers, no decorations were needed. The paper says it all. The stamped sentiment says “We always have enough time, if we just use it right”, and is my design for Slöjd-Detaljer. Card is made for Butterfly Challenge #37 – Butterflies and Archway.


Butterflies again

As I mentioned in a previous post, I love to use butterflies on my cards. Imagine my luck when I found a challenge blog that always use butterflies, in combination with something else, for their challenges! The blog is called Butterfly Challenge, and their latest (ending today) challenge was to use washi. I used two colors of glitter washi.

This card is also for sketch #129 at Cardabilities.
