World Card Making Day...Part 2 - SSS24

Hello again. I hope you were able to find some time to create today. I have 2 more cards for you today. The first is just one I made for the fun of it, and the second was for The Sweet Stop Challenge. Without further ado...
For this card I used the doodlebug set from TAC. I stamped the butterfly and paper pieced it with the colored papers. The colored papers are actually papers I made using the shaving cream technique. What a fun, messy thing to play with...and really who knew you could use shaving cream to decorate paper! I added some liquid pearl (pink) to the body and crystal stickles to the antenna. The background paper is from TAC set A little whimsy. I layered the butterfly using dimensionals, and added the dew drop butterflies.

This card I made for the Sweet Stop Sketch this week. (SSS24) I actually started this card for a Facebook WCMD challenge, and ended up using the sketch to put it all together. The sentiment and cornucopia are from the TAC set give thanks. The leaves are from a SU set fall flair. I wanted to use all gold and purple...fall colors. I used a purple base and layered the gold CS onto it. The next layer, I ran some purple CS through the cuttlebug, and lightly ran the versamark ink over it. I then embossed with gold. The next layer is a purple CS with various leaves and acorns embossed in gold. The sentiment was stamped on purple CS, and embossed with a light purple powder, and punched with the oval punch. The final layer is the cornucopia embossed in gold and layered onto gold CS. I used a corner punch on this layer as well. Well that is it.

Thanks so much for stopping by and seeing my WCMD creations. Again, I hope you had a chance to stamp today also!
