Double Whammy Challenge with Garden in Bloom

By | June 13, 2015

I’m on a roll where challenges are concerned – it’s been too long since I entered them – life has just been busy what with a newborn an’ all!!

But I saw a great colour combo over at Just Add Ink and the Code word at Addicted to CAS was Butterfly so I thought I would combine them.



ATCAS - code word butterfly

So without further ado, here is my card. My new order arrived yesterday so I just had to play with my new stufF. This is a great two-step stamp set called Garden in Bloom which I have used Just Add Ink’s colours,.  The sentiment is heat embossed in gold and I fussy cut the little butterfly and lightly coloured it in Pink Pirouette.


I think this set could become a firm favourite – there is also a very cute bee in the set! That’s definitely the next one on my list to use.

Here is a list of everything I used to make the card

Come back soon for another crafty project, until then, happy stamping,

      Thank you Chantell, I love vellum and should use it more often as it really softens a card like you said 🙂

    This is beautiful, Eimear! The sweet gold-embossed butterfly fits so beautifully in amongst all the lovely bold blooms. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink!
