Spring flowers for the April Card Chain Challenge

Hello everyone! It's the second of the month, which means it's time for another CCC reveal.

I'm still very busy working on my own personal growth, but the Card Chain Challenge is a good incentive to create at least one card a month, even if I'm usually late in sending it out.

Anyway, this past month my card went to Tina in Slovenia.

I used a NBUS stamp set that I had won during a new Uniko release (Background Blocks Layered Modern Floral). The stamp comes with the flower layer, the leave layer and a few small elements. After stamping, I used a white pencil to add a little detail to the flower petals. The sentiment is from an older Altenew set.

March Card Chain Challenge Reveal

Hello everyone! It's the second of the month, which means it's time to show you the card that I sent out for the March Card Chain Challenge.

Life has been busy this past month with work and personal stuff, so I did not have a lot of time to spend in my craftroom. That's why I pulled out an old card from my stash to send to Pia in Norway. It was perfect for this month's themes of friendship and farm. Besides, it was perfect for St. Patrick's Day.

Some of you may have seen this card before on my blog. It was a super quick and CAS card that I created using a digital image by Faith Skrdla of From the Heart Stamps, who sadly passed away much too soon a few years ago. This card reminds me of how her images always make me smile, so I intend to create some more cards using the images that I own.

Do check out the other cards that were exchanged worldwide this month. If you want to join the fun, you have until April, 6th to link up for the April Card Chain exchange. You can play as often as you like, since you need to link up for each month that you wish to play.

Butterfly for February Card Chain Challenge Reveal

Hello everyone. It's the second of the month, which means it's time to show you all what I created for the Card Chain Challenge. This month, my card went to Debbie in Michigan, who was participating for the very first time this month.

I went with the sketch and the product/technique option (paint).

I found some scraps in my scrap box that seemed to combine really well. I tore the green scrap (from a not so successful 'drunken acrylics' experiment) lengthwise and added die-cut circles from another scrap. If I remember correctly, I used Marabu acrylic effects paint on this scrap. I had stamped and heat-embossed the butterfly last month while working on my January CCC card, so all I had to do now was to fussy cut just the butterfly and add it to my biggest circle. I adhered the butterfly body with liquid glue and put a strip of foam tape under each wing. Both the butterfly and and sentiment are from the Block Prints set from Fun Stampers Journey.

Do check out the CCC challenge blog to see all of the wonderful cards that were exchanged worldwide last month. And while you are there, why don't to link up and join us next month? Each month, you can decide if you want to play or not.
