My Style 2 Ways...

Happy Sunday!

I hope your all having a lovely weekend and that you enjoyed the festivities here on the blog yesterday?! I certainly had fun & I'm looking forward to receiving emails for DT applications and seeing projects linked to Super FREE Saturday. If you missed yesterday's post check it out HERE.

Today I have a few more cards to share with you which use the BRIGHT Butterflies Super FREE Saturday collection available to download HERE. I have made 2 cards which I think show my style but in 2 different ways...

On this first card I have stepped out of my comfort zone a little but still kept it CAS to a degree...

I started out by using Rose Red Ink to splatter lightly across my card blank - Arrrgh! Messing up a lovely white background - totally out of my comfort zone! 

I then used stripes of the patterned paper from the collection and CS matching the colours to create a 'Washi Tape' kind of effect. I tore the edges on the right hand side - which is a step out of my comfort zone! Tearing = messy which doesn't fit in my neat organised head! LOL! 

Next, the sewing machine was dusted off & I stitched a zig zag down the edge! A very rare occurrence on a card, mainly as I'm in a rush and can't be bothered to add stitching! I then layered the butterfly cut out from the journal card with a die cut butterfly. I enlarged the journal card quite a bit to get the butterfly bigger. Some rhinestones dotted about & a sentiment from Extra Time finished the card off nicely! 

For my next card I used the current Freshly Made Sketches sketch I used on Friday seen HERE and HERE. I kept the card super CAS & super simple ...

I selected the floral paper from the collection and used 2 Martha Stewart Butterfly punches to punch out the butterflies. The sentiment is from Pure Florals: Gerbera. 

Yet each card is clearly different in the degree of Clean & Simple I feel both cards represent my style of card making & I love them both! 

I hope you've enjoyed today's projects & that I inspire you a bit when it comes to making cards?! Thanks for stopping by today.
