The challenge is to Case a card by the talented Emma Goddard. Check out her card that we are to use for inspiration…
I just love Emma’s card and I was especially inspired by the water-colour wash technique she used on the background. So, today I did my morning “Coffee and a Card” Facebook live video using Emma’s card as an inspiration. You can click here to watch my video on my Facebook Business page.
Here’s a look at my card…
I started with a piece f the Fluid 100 Watercolor paper that measures 4 x 51/4″. I used my Aqua painters and a drop of reinkers to add the wash to the background. I started at the top using daffodil Delight, then Calypso Coral and finally some pumpkin pie at the bottom.
Next, I used the Butterfly Beauty Dies and whisper white card stock to cut the main image for the focal point of my card. The die is large with lots of butterflies so I just used my paper snips and removed three of the butterflies form the edges. I will use them on a later card 🙂 I also cut two smaller butterflies using scrap pieces of Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral.
My Stampin Blends markers came in handy for colouring the die cut image. I used a combination of Dark and Light Calypso Coral, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight shades to add the different colors to my butterflies. I popped up the die cut image using Mini Dimensional
I stamped the greeting using Memento Black Ink. I also colored some Rhinestones using my Calypso Coral Blends markers and I embellished the butterflies with them.
I made two cards, because you know… I might as well make two if I’m cutting a sheet of cardstock in half right?
My second card is a little lighter as I used mostly Daffodil delight for the Water color wash effect. Just goes to show that no two cards are ever exactly the same in card making, right?
Here’s a look at the supplies i used to make my cards today…

Today, I am so excited to participate in the Maui 2020 Blog Hop for April! What’s a Blog Hop you ask? Well…it’s a fun way to share Stamping and paper crafting ideas with you and to connect others from around the globe in creativity. All of the people listed in today’s blog Hop, have earned the 2020 Maui Incentive trip. The names are listed further down in my blog post and we are all happy to be “Hopping” together to share our ideas with you. I invite you to to click on the names below to head over and see what everyone has created today. Please take a moment to share your comments with us. It would literally make our day 🙂
Here’s a look at my card share using the gorgeous new Ornate Borders dies.
For this card, I am featuring one of the 2018-2020 In Colors that will be leaving us in just a few shorts weeks. It’s called Lovely Lipstick. If you already own this color and love it (Like I do) , now’s the time to stock up! Don’t forget the re-inker for your ink pad as well as the cardstock and the other In color Products in this collection.
This card also features the beautiful green called “Call me Clover”. In the photo above, I have run the Ornate layer through the die cut machine with Call me Clover cardstock. I held on to the little “Bits” that fall out of the leaves and I used my “Take Your Pick” tool to insert them into the negative spaces. Just a tiny bit of multipurpose glue will hold these pieces in place. This adds color to my flower die cut and makes it pop. I love these vibrant colors together.
For my greeting, I have used Lovely Lipstick ink and I stamped the So Grateful on a stitched rectangle of Purple Posy Cardstock
I hope you like my card today and you’ll keep on hopping through the list to see all the wonderful creations from other Demonstrators from all over the world.
