Quickspiration: Butterfly Basics Sympathy & Fussy Cutting

Nov 30, 2017 | Quickspiration, Sympathy Cards | 0 comments

Looking for quick inspiration to kick-start your creativity? Welcome to a new series – Quickspiration!

I’m excited to start this new blog series – Quickspiration – because I craft a lot more than I share on my blog. I know that you’d love to see what I’m working on, but I don’t always have time to go in-depth with tips and tricks, videos, etc…. So, these posts will be short on words, but have more images so you can see exactly what went down.

Today’s design was inspired by a new Tic Tac Toe Challenge that I found particularly challenging. I was totally in the Holiday mood, and “pumpkin” was throwing me off. Well, I needed some sympathy cards too – per a customer’s request, so it was time to change direction. There’s fussy cutting to be had here, so if you’re a fan, you’ll love this one. If not, it’s a great opportunity to build your skills! Enjoy today’s Quickspiration!

AECP: Faux-clipse Thank You Card

Don’t you just love the eclipse technique? How about the faux-clipse?
The eclipse technique is super fun and not too difficult, but I created a riff on the technique, I’m calling a faux-clipse.

On the CASE: Faceted Flower

It’s coming!
Spring is trying so hard to melt all the snow here in East Nebraska – but, it’s coming! Soon, the grass will be growing and little plants will be pushing up from the ground. Why not add to the anticipation with a lovely, but simple, faceted floral design, courtesy of Concord & 9th!

AECP: Build a Garden Scene Card

It’s time to chillax with some coloring!
I took my project over the top today with a combination of Copic and Polychromos pencil coloring. I am not embarassed to say that the elements took me about 90 minutes to color.
