Multifaceted Smile and Hugs...FUSION~Bright Butterfly, Winnie and Walter~Join in to Win

Hello,

Tuesday morning...off to work for a few hours, BUT  holidays are coming closer! Excited!  Hopefully our plans for road trips, bike races, more road trips and more bike races will play out (and not play *us* out!).

A super quick post because the gallery over at FUSION~Bright Butterfly will be closing soon.

Here's my first card, playing with the colours of this inspiration photo as my background...


And my second...same thing...


Nothing particularly fancy-dancy about either one, except more affirmation that, yes siree...I'm loving that Multifaceted Cover die *grin*! Heading off to Winnie & Walter Join in to Win.


Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
Hugs,

Beautiful blending, Carol ... you know how much I also love this gorgeously graphic Multifaceted die ... you've showcased is splendidly, my friend! Hugs, Anita :)

Great card! I love how we see the dark silhouette of the butterfly! Really fun and colorful!

KayM said...

Oh both of your cards are beautiful!! Trying to figure out which one I love the best?? Tough decision, but I'm thinking the first one, only because there is more color! I love the spongy-ness and the black butterflies and sentiments! Just gorgeous!! Hang in there! Vacation's coming!! (Hugs)

Geri said...

Fabulously fancy-dancy in my books! My Baba always used the term "fancy dancy" when something was really pretty but quite often unaffordable for her :)

Your blending is incredible! I'd say you've aced this technique. The bold black looks soooooo good against the pastel colors. Stunning cards pal :)

Kim Heggins said...

OHHHHHHHHH....so fabulous! and I will agree with Miss Geri, very fancy dancy, so the coloring, just stunning my dear friend.

Stephanie Lanzalotto said...

Both so gorgeous Carol!!! I just got my W&W shipment yesterday with all the things you made me buy - lol! This cover plate is one of them. Can't wait to use it. I love the sponging on both the base and the die cut panel. Such different looks - both wonderful!!!!!

So Suzy Stamps said...

Wow!!! Absolutely stunning!

Rose said...

I've been eyeing this die for a while, undecided as to whether I should purchase. I think your cards have tipped me over the edge! Beautiful colour blending & both cards are really lovely.

Joyce said...

Both of these are so stunning. I've got this die on my wish list...plus a few other WW goodies that have been out of stock. Love how you were able to make two cards out of your beautifully colored panel.

Deanne @ Three Trees said...

I love how you used the negative die and made another stunning card!!! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Fusion.

Barb Ghig said...

You are really Rockin' your W&W goodies, Carol! I love how you blended your inks and played with your cover die on both cards...and the black sentiments and butterflies are the perfect choice! Love them both to pieces!

Marisa said...

Way to use that die cut!! I would run the other way LOL! Beautifully done both ways.

Brenda said...

Stunning cards Carol! I am so loving the colors from the inspiration photo. You did a great job using those colors with the die, and oh my that butterfly...I'm so in love with it and it is so stunning in black! Your second card is equally stunning as well. I think you are having fun using this die and I am falling in love with it as well. lol Hugs, Brenda

Shona Chambers said...

Beautiful blending and that pop of black is perfection! I can see why you like that die, so many possibilities. And so many bike races to look forward too, thank goodness your in the warmer part of the year! Not sure about time differences but Happy 4th of July and enjoy the festivities over the weekend!

Cornelia (fun stamping) said...

Stunning! Like the stark contrast between the black and your pastel colors - exquisite!

Taunya Butler said...

So far behind - I am such a naughty friend, I will send me to bed without any supper - NO, wait, that is what the flu did to me!! Anyhow - please forgive my neglect!! These cards are amazing and I am just in love with the sponging you are doing these days!! Wonderful and delightful!! Love them so much!! I am off to catch up on all your dazzling creations!!!

Kylie said...

I wasn't such a fan of this die until I saw your cards and now I am dazzled by it. Seriously, these are amazing, Carol! I am always giddy by your use of colour!
