Inlaid Flowers & Butterflies


Hello there!  
Another weekend has flown by and while I didn't accomplish a single thing on my To Do list I did manage to make a few cards.  :)
This first one is inspired by Anita's gorgeous card at Muse.  I took pretty direct inspiration from her card - just changed up the shapes and sentiment.  I actually made a few versions of it in order to use up all the bits and pieces.  The first one is my favourite though.






Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Watercolor) Ranger, (Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Flower) Essentials by Ellen, (Pierced circle) Lil' Inker Designs, (Thanks, Congrats) Mama Elephant
Markers:  (Pink, Orange, Yellow, Emerald Green, Turquoise Green, Cobalt Blue, Violet) Zig
Glitter:  (clear Wink of Stella) Zig
Other:  (Nuvo Oyster Grey Crystal Drops) Tonic



I also made a couple of cards using the sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches and the colours from Just Add Ink.  More inlaid dies here but this time a PTI butterfly and a couple of different Altenew sentiments.






Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Textured White) Bazzill, (Pink Pirouette, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Birthday sent from Birthday Greetings, Hugs sent from Heartfelt Sentiments) Altenew
Inks:  (VersaMArk) Tsukeniko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Butterfly) Papertrey Ink, (Circle) Spellbinders
Gems:  Recollections

wow all beautiful Jen, love inlaid dies and using the negatives as well especially when it means rainbow colours are in use. Perfect.

Love your rendition of Anita's card. I particularly like the flower die and the rainbow coloring and inlaid aspect of your card.

That delicate inlaid butterfly is just so pretty, Jen ... and I LOVE all those rainbow blooms against the black/white backgrounds ... they glow beautifully! Hope your Simply Graphic wish list is nice and full by now!! Hugs across the miles, Anita :)

That's the great think about inlaid die cutting, you always have bits left over to make at least one more! Loving all your rainbow floral combinations, all completely fabulous. And I like the simple lines and softness of your butterfly cards, so pretty.
Thanks so much for playing along at Muse this week, Anita x

It's great when you can use both the positive and negative to make cards. Those rainbow flowers pop off the black, Jen, and I like the butterflies off the edge.
