... earlier this month Waltzingmouse Stamps hosted a wonderful waltz around the Design Team's blogs - they were showcasing Spellbinders new Grand Calibur die cutting machine. They were all very lucky girls to be given the machine to try out (only a little bit of envy here) ;) They showed us some wonderful projects; these are seriously talented ladies. Now I know the waltz is over, but it's still worth checking out their projects - you start from here.
Following this party, there is a special challenge over at WMS - they want us to CASE ("means Copy and Share with Everyone... in other words, be inspired by someone's card/project and make your own in similar style... put your own twist on it... and acknowledge from whom the inspiration came") one of the projects from the party waltz.
I've been a bit late coming to this challenge - it took a while to decide whose project to CASE. I finally settled on this card by Belinda - I love the simplicity of design and beautiful colours.
For my card I've gone for a bright yellow base onto which I've stamped a lattice of white embossed flowers. I used Spellbinders Labels 13 to cut out my aperture. As the card is so bright I decided to make a pretty butterfly using Claire's lovely Earth Angels set. I stamped the wings in dark purple and coloured the image with Promarkers. I ran some silver thread up the back of the butterfly and attached it at a jaunty angle!! Finally, I made the greeting using the fancy tags set and tinted it with distress inks. A bright and cheerful Spring card!

I had a really enjoyable day yesterday. First we had fun and games on the Playstation with a pop music quiz. Sadly I was shown up first by my daughter and then by my husband. I admit it, I'm rubbish as this sort of quiz - but give me a science quiz - then I'm a whiz!!! Second, I spent the afternoon playing in my craft room - and I produced the card above.
Today I'm off to craft class - so hopefully, I'll have a card or two to show you later.
