CAS Christmas Card, Colourful Butterflies and Sushi

 I have a few cards to share today. We are back in Lockdown, so crafting is the best way to spend my time. 

I'm getting in to the spirit of Christmas in July with this card. I stamped, coloured and fussy-cut  the snowman. Next I stamped all the other images and sentiments, colouring with Zig Markers.

I made a wash with Karin Markers and Cosmic Shimmer Powder. The Eucalyptus Wreaths were die-cut from a smooshed background. Next I stamped the butterfly, coloured with Karin markers and fussy-cut.  I added some glitter to the butterfly with a Nuvo Glitter Gloss Pen. To finish I stamped the sentiment.
Stamps: Stampin Up Butterfly Brilliance
Die: Alexandra Renke Eucalyptus Wreath


I have missed making butterfly cards, so I decided to make another one and revisited one of my fave Penny Black stamps. The image was stamped and coloured with Karin Markers and blended loosely with water. 
Stamps: Penny Black Trio of Butterflies; Stamplorations Bloomfully: Wonderful


I couldn't stop smiling while I was creating this card!  I love this adorable set.

  7. Jenny, I am so sorry you are back in lockdown thank goodness for our hobbies that is for sure. Our county is not doing well with the Covid variant at the moment either. We went from a 3.9 infectious rate a few weeks ago to a 12.9. Hubby and I are back staying home by choice as our local and state politicians are not very smart. As for your card...I love the eucalyptus wreath that is framing your butterfly. The wash background was a perfect way to make this card pop!
