Flowers, Butterflies and Snippets

Good afternoon. This is a scheduled post to share a card made of more snippets from the Crapalanche. Here goes:

Everything on this card is from the Crapalanche (that's snippets, right? ) or else the Snippet box.

- Flower stamped on w/color c/s, colored with Zig Brush markers...fussy cut. Added some irResistible Pico Embellisher - Dandelion to the center of the flower.

- HLS Butterfly Birthday - stamped on W/color paper, colored with markers, added some Glossy Accents after fussy cutting, and then a bit of the Dandelion pico. The body of the butterfly didn't show up all that well after all my embellishing, so used a MBox butterfly body to die cut one from a black glitter snippet.

- Rose and green Celtic circle behind - snippets from other projects, as was the lower rectangle behind the butterfly and flower (half of the center cut left from cutting angles for this card.) This was from a Christmas pack, but on this card, it doesn't look at all like Christmas paper.

- stitched background was from another project, using some green dp and smooshing it through some leftover ink from spraying, inking & debris left on the craft mat. Unfortunately, the layout covered up a good bit of this...just a bit peeks out.

- Black snippet cut the mat, and the white card base front was covered with a mop-up piece created when a sprayed piece was getting too wet & runny. I try to remember to have extra pieces of cut-to-size card stock handy. If I get too much ink on a sprayed piece, it's a good way to use up the extra ink, also blot the original piece. A Two-Fer I guess it's called, and the 2nd piece is always much more muted than the original.

- Elizabeth Craft die - 2 layers of snippet w/c, colored with copics, think it had a coat of black WoS.

Hope you like it! Thanks for joining me, and I'm trying really hard to keep up with the lovely visitors' comments. I'm not always certain that Blogger publishes my comment, but I do try to visit! Hugs

Oh my!!! Ha ha ha!! Finally I have understood exactly what is Crapalanche ...:D :D Before reading your words I tought that was a brand of something... :D and instead it's the snippets stash!
Anyway, your bright card is very impressive, love the rose and the butterfly so colourful and vibrant! The body of the butterfly is just perfect and the flower pop out very well! Love your own background, it's very beautiful also if I can see only a piece!

I try and always use some snippet on my cards but I don't think I've ever made a card with snippets only. I've got plenty, so it should be doable, maybe I'll put that on my list to do next to challenge myself. I love what came out from your snippet box!

This prettily coloured red flower and butterfly look fantastic against the lovely background paper Mary and the black layer behind really makes it pop. A great use of snippet/crapalanche items. Hope you have had a good weekend. x

Wow, loving this card Momma Mary! The flower is gorgeous as is that butterfly! Love the papers as well. That little rose is so pretty too. You did a fabulous job of using up the snippets/Crapalanche!! I love when you can use up snippets/Crapalanche. I have tons of it unfortunately. It seems the more I use the more seems to pile up. lol Hugs, Brenda

Lovely and bright! Kudos for you for going thru your crapalanche. When you are done you can come sort thru my stuff. That's the one room where things haven't gotten settled enough (or much, or possibly at all) yet.

Great use of the items from your crapalanche Mary, I love the big bold flower and the butterfly has benefited from the addition of the MBox body. A beauty of a card! Hugs, Anne xx

Hi Mary,

So just had to comment on how lovely it is.
The colours are so very vibrant, and that flower and butterfly are superb.
A very super card made from your snippets.

Such a striking card, Mary! Your red bloom is deliciously vibrant, but it's your butterfly that captures my heart. Gorgeous! (Really: 201 days until Halloween? I'd best start getting ready because it will be here before we know it!).
