More NSD Challenges!

Woohoo!  I bet you can tell that I had FUN in my Scrap/Stamp Office on Saturday with all the National Scrapbook Day Challenges!   I'm just posting a couple more of my cards that were completed thanks to the gals at Perfect Sentiments who decided that NSD wasn't just for scrapping!   You gals rock!   Although,  I have to admit,  I did more scrap pages than cards but all was good.  

It's really fun because when you're "in the zone" the cards and pages seem to come together easier.   It might just be that all the major tools are already out (probably on the floor) and it makes it quick and easy to grab and go.   For Karen's challenge I used the sketch from this week's Paper Secrets CYAO13 Challenge.  This paper is some of my favorite right now because I just love the color - AMuse Studio burano.  Ooo--ooo-la-la!   My favorite dies right now seem to be butterflies and fortunately I have 3 different diecut sets.  This one is AMuse Studio Butterfly dies and fortunately I had some scraps of vellum as that was the twist in the challenge.   The AMuse Studio ladies challenge for this week is to use a diecut and it wasn't hard to choose.  

Supplies:   AMuse Studio burano & wasabi paper,  AMuse Studio stamps best year ever,  AMuse Studio Ink french roast, burano, AMuse Studio butterfly die, AMuse Studio french roast button & twine

This card was for Tabitha's challenge.  Her challenge was for "Just a Note" and to use a cute sketch she provided.   I was so excited because I've had this package of notecards I bought out of the $.25 bin at PC's laying on my desk for awhile and as soon as I saw the challenge, I knew they were perfect for the sketch.  I used AMuse Heart Dies on this one (2nd fave diecuts after butterflies).  I have to admit,  I made 4 of these cards but the good news is all of them are already stamped and ready to mail out as they made perfect way to send some "thinking of you" wishes I've been wanting to get out!

  4. Lela-butterflies are also my favorite! I'm back from vacation & checking on the entries for our Perfect Sentiment NSD Challenge. Your background paper really pops! Vellum is one of my favs & I think your diecut butterfly really adds alot to your card. Adding a little something to your envelope is always appreciated too!
