Day 16: Lilybee Challenge + butterfly card

Hey there,

I struggled to get this layout to come together the way I imagined.  When I saw the lilybee sketch, of course I wanted to try it out.  I then incorporated some of my own elements such as the hand stitched circles!! Although its a Christmas theme layout, the colors don't bring attention to it.  I actually had several embellishments on this layout but ripped them off.  Hopefully you can't notice too much. Oops!!  I also took advantage of using the merry mini punch pack (trees) from Stampin Up again so that it gave some idea that it was Christmas (besides for the title).

Check it out!

Materials Used: Textured white SU background paper, Lilybee Dutch patterned paper throughout, AC thickers and BG alphabet stickers, and We R Memory keepers Sew Easy Fancy Floss, SU Night of Navy marker.

My Internet is SO SLOW so for whatever reason I can't get on the Lilybee blog to show you the sketch...

And finally I was trying out and playing with my Mr. Hueys today to come up with a card... Ummm... it did not turn out the way I wanted but its something alright.  There was supposed to be three colors "mismashed" in order to look like a tie dye t-shirt.Instead the bottom red color over powered the middle calico Mr Huey. Ha. I then contrasted the card with black to make it pop and edged it with 'pool party' ink from Stampin Up.  I put some AC buttons on there with SU twine to make those butterflies pop... Butterflies, you ask? Well I used some Maya Road wood veneers as a mask. Love the idea but the tip of the day is to practice your sprays before applying.

Bumb dadadadad dooo - here ya go!

Materials Used: Mr Huey's spray, SU black cardstock and SU whisper white card stock, SU Merry messages stamp set, We R memory keepers sew easy fancy floss, unknown ribbon, AC buttons, SU bakers twine, SU pearls, Maya Road wood veneers
