There's a flurry of birthdays during this coming week with three Aunties and a friend all celebrating so it was time to give Mr Crafting Mojo a shake up. I decided to take a card design I'd made before but make it in different colour ways and here are the first two in shocking pink. The card, ribbon, and ink are in Rose Red and Melon Mambo from the Stampin' up range as is the stamped sentiment. It fits inside one of the Spellbinders nestabilities classic ovals dies perfectly. Although I had matching Stampin' up paper I decided it was too dark for this project and used paper from a pad I bought from Create and Craft many moons ago, in the Alan and Barry days.
The stamped image on the topper was made using a Stampendous stamp which is called Agapanathus Cluster. I first saw this stamp being used on QVC by Dawn Bibby and loved it. She used it to demonstrate a bleaching technique. It looks good stamped in one colour of ink or coloured in different colours with pens. I've also added the Agapanthus Long and Agapanthus Bloom stamps to my stamp collection and used the Agapanthus Long to decorate the inserts for these cards. The peeloff butterflies were put on to acetate, cut out and then the wings folded back before being attached to the card. This was another tip I picked up from Dawn.
I'd like to enter these cards in the following challenge
