I'm Limited and Late!!

I'm limited in supplies that is! and late at that challenge!

Friday's challenge on Splitcoast Stampers is always a limited supplies challenge.

This week (well, last week) the challenge was this:

DIRECTIONS: Make 2-4 cards using the SAME stamps, designer paper, and color scheme. Things that can change to make each card unique are layouts, tools and accessories. The main idea is to get many different looks using the same stamps, designer paper, and colors. It can also show the importance of tools, embellishments, and layouts on cards... how it can really make a card great and how it can really change the look of an image for a totally new card.

So, on the weekend, I got out a 12 x 12 sheet of Basic Grey Lily Kate paper and cut it into 9 - 4" x 4" pieces.

I used 3 sheets of Papertrey Ink's Spring Moss 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock and 3 sheets of some other lilac cardstock I had and made the card bases by cutting each sheet in half.

Some I cut on the 8 1/2" side and some on the 11" side KWIM?!

Then I stamped my butterfly, (I also did a snail) from Technique Tuesday's "Buggin' Out" on white Papertrey Ink cardstock and coloured the images with copics.

I also added a whooole bunch of stickles and glitter on the butterflies so they would be nice and pur-tee!!
I cut them out and embossed them with the nestabilities - some square and some rectangle and mounted them on a scalloped piece of cut and embossed matching cardstock.

The sentiments are all from Papertrey Ink's stamp set Faux Ribbon.

After scrounging through my meager ribbon supply - yeh right LOL!! I found some matching ribbon!

I put them all together and here are three of them done for the challenge!!

Math class Tuesday today!

I may go to the slots while I am waiting - a lady here in Ontario won 9 millions dollars on the slot machines the other day!!!!

Of course, on the other hand, maybe she won it all and there will be nothing left for me!! Dang!
