Moving Along with the Times Design Team Challenge

Stampin' Up! are about to share the most convenient stamp set ever as far as this challenge is concerned. Kaz set the theme for this fortnight's MAWTT challenge and has asked that you share cards which include 'gingham' and/or buttons.  Hence I've used a stamp called Buffalo Check which launches on 5 September.  It's fab and you can create so many backgrounds just by changing the colour that you use or the card you stamp it onto. It's a big background stamp so you can also stamp an then die cut the shape you want.  You can order it online in my Stampin' Up! shop  from 5 September along with all the other fabulous new stash in our winter catalogue.  If you have shopped with me in the past 6 months you'll be receiving yours any day now, but if not then do let me know if you'd like a complimentary copy.

So I've used shade of purple from the Stampin' Up! collection to create this WOW butterfly. I've used the faux linen technique and if you pop by tomorrow I'll have all the details of how to do it with the Totally Techniques blog hop.  Internet permitting I'll have a video to share with you that you can follow.    The gingham is stamped with one of my new favourite colours Highland Heather from the subtle collection.  It's so pretty.  I've then used Rich Razzleberry, Fresh Fig, Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather to colour the butterfly.

The new glitter enamel dots are in fun fresh colours and I've added some of the Gorgeous Grape and some basic rhinestones for a little bit of sparkle.  The sentiment is from Rooted in Nature and fussy cut around the letters before adding it to my card.  A quick and easy project if a little messy on the fingers, but you can read more about that tomorrow.

Thanks for popping by and remember my Stampin' Up! shop is open 24/7 and you can earn bonus coupons when you shop in August, just a couple of days left to benefit from this offer.
 Don't forget to visit the MAWTT blog and see the other fabulous Gingham/Button creations from the rest of the design team and join in with our challenge.

Back tomorrow
