The Friday Mashup #42 - Red Butterfly

Hi Stampers,
This is my third week as Guest Designer at The Friday Mashup.  There is a tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers that shows you how to Paper Pierce around curved corners or a circle. Worth watching , this was a first for me and a lot easier than I thought it would be so I have learnt something new today.  I also Paper Pieced my flowers by stamping on Designer Paper and cutting them out. Love the look and I think it adds some dimension to the flowers with the variation in colour.

This weeks Mashup is to:
1. Do some Paper Piercing or
2. Use Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red and Early Espresso as your colours
3. Or Mash it up and use both.
I have used both with a touch of green.
Stamps:  S/U's Fabulous Florets, Creative Elements, Elegant Greetings (R)
Card and Papers: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Riding Hood Red, In Colour Patterns Pack DSP, Well Worn DSP
Ink: Early Espresso, Riding Hood Red, Stazon Black, Wild Wasabi

Just Add Ink #100 - Just Add A Crown - Crown of Hearts

Hello Friends,
Today's post is for the Just Add Ink Challenge this week to Just Add A Crown for their 100th Challenge.  I had not played with my Simply Adorned Charm goodies so I decided to have a play and use it for the challenge.  After a few practise goes and much searching for stamps that would suit, I had some fun putting the bits and pieces together. I could see it being quite addictive and time consuming (depending on the amount of detail you wanted to incorporate) creating little pieces of art to put inside the pendant.
This photo shows the detail on the 2.5 x 3.2 cms (1 1/4" x 1") pieces of card.

Stamps: S/U's French Foliage, You're A Gem, Clearly For You, Forever Young, Lovely Letters Alphabet, Silhouette Sentiments (R)
Card:  Whisper White, Basic Grey, Cherry Cobbler
Ink: Stazon Black, Sahara Sand, Basic Grey, Cherry Cobbler
Finishing Touches: Pearls, Black Crystal, Vanilla Pearl, Trinket Crowns

Thanks' for stopping by today.
