Two Challenges in One

Supplies: Stamps: GKD Spring Mix Ink: Versamagic Oasis Green, SU Pear Pizzazz, TPC Graphite Paper: Papertrey Ivory, K & Company Poppyseed Designer Mat Pad Accessories: CB Stylized Flower Embossing Folder, Nestabilities labels and classic ovals, Hero Arts envelope liner and flower gems, dimensionals

I combined the Featured Stamper and Just Us Girls Challenges this week. The featured stamper is UKJem and I decided to case this card: May Flowers. And the Just Us Girls Challenge was to use Gina K stamps, decorate your envelope, and make a liner for your envelope.

I started by choosing a paper to line my envelope with. This set my color scheme. Then I chose the GKD Spring Mix stamp set to work with. I decided to used the butterflies in place of the handmade flowers on UKJem's card. I also chose the stylized flower embossing folder because butterflies enjoy flying around flowers. The last change to the card was I chose a different labels nestabilities. I must have chosen a larger oval because I would have had to use a huge label to match UKJem's. So I switched it up to fit on my card. I loved all of the white on white cards UKJem had in her gallery, this was so fun to make!

For the envelope part of the challenge, I remembered I bought a Hero Arts envelope liner template! So I dug it out and used it. I really like the decorative edge it gives. I also rounded the corners to the envelope, and stamped some butterflies on the front of the envelope.

Thanks for looking!
