Butterflies and Bugs and Poppies in bloom

Morning Peeps so time for a new challenge at Allsorts and this week Wendy would like to see lots of 'Butterflies and Bugs' and a prize from Craft Stash for our lucky winner. I also have some shares from my post a few days ago over at the Chocolate Baroque blog here and the large Poppies I mentioned the other day are now in bloom.

A pretty simply created card above, an oxide background, masked the edges and added the colour, stamped Chocolate Baroque Butterfly Daisy Collage one and a half times with Versfaine black with the mask still in place and finito.

This was a The Craft Store TV make for Stamp Addicts, a masked circle softly inked around the edges, Music Sheet stamped in Versafine grey and the Butterfly, SA kiss stamped onto Circles in Circles and cut out. The sentiment is also SA.

Aren't they just glorious?

My Chocolate Baroque shares,

Have a sunny weekend.

Oh what fabulous work Brenda - love your second card with the pink and raspberry! The poppies certainly make a wonderful display!
Those C.B houses are fascinating, and love the various ways you have used them, especially the second card - I think I must be showing my bias for CAS cards :)
Stay safe

Always a delightful visit here Brenda, lots of colourful, inspiring creations. I don't how you fit everything in to your day, I'm obviously a slow crafter, lol. :o)

Conny said...

Love that oxide background on the first card and your wonderful pink CAS second card too. Thanks for the poppy pictures. I am enjoying all the poppies I have been seeing on my morning walks recently. It has made me decide that I must get some for my garden xx

Linby said...

Love the butterfly cards, the second one is so pretty in pink with the CAS design.
Obviously I love the poppies in your garden. I had a hug ornamental one but lost it when there was some work done a few years ago and I've never replaced it, lots of yellow welsh poppies though.
Great CB houses, I like how you extended the roofs off the card.

Ellibelle said...

Your cards are simply beautiful Brenda, my favorite is the first one with the pretty butterfly collage CB stamp but do love the simplicity of the second one as well. Gorgeous and unique buildings too!

Really loving your poppies!! I'm not sure I've seen purple poppies before! What a striking color!

Che meravigliosi papaveri nel tuo giardino!! E vedo che le api li apprezzano molto! :D Finalmente l'estate sembra arrivare, qui da qualche giorno fa molto caldo.
Tornando alle tue card, sono innamorata della prima, che bellissima scena con gli inchiostri gialli e rosa enfatizzati dal nero delle timbrate! I fiori e le grandi farfalle ne fanno davvero una scena estiva! Mi piace molto questo timbro di CB, lo metto nella mia wishlist :)
La seconda card è molto elegante e mi ricorda che voglio provare la tecnica dello stamp-kissing, Ci sono molte tecniche che mi riprometto sempre di usare, ma poi mi dimentico. :/
Bellissime le case di CB con quei colori vividi e anche la versione in toni neutri è molto intrigante, mi ricorda una litografia.
Un abbraccio, goditi il sole nel tuo paradiso!

It's your Butterfly shaped card on Allsorts that I came over to compliment but it hasn't been included here. Some fantastic Poppies they really are glorious. Also a series of Chocolate Baroque images and samples those houses are so bright and vibrant. But I really do like that butterfly shape! x

Carole said...

Vicky Hayes said...

I predict a busy week at Allsorts with the ever-popular butterfly theme! Your cards are both gorgeous as always. I'm finding myself more and more drawn to busier cards without layers after making CAS cards ever since I started crafting. Your poppies are making a glorious display aren't they! What amazing colours! You must have been influenced by them when you made the first of the CB house cards! Vicky x
