Butterfly Thanks and Birthday...Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #405~Spring, Pink, Orchid


Hope you're having a lovely Spring weekend on this, the last day of April! Where is the year going! Fingers crossed we've made the turn from 'snow and rain' to 'sunshine and flowers'...fingers crossed!

Speaking of flowers...Welcome to Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #405~Spring, Pink, Orchid. Aren't the tantalizing temptations extra lovely?  So pretty...guaranteed to bring tingles to our sweet tooth and the sugar rush would be epic! Yum!

This week's sponsor is The Frantic Stamper, who are offering the Tropical Leaf Panel Die to our randomly chosen winner.
Please check the Cupcake Inspiration blog for more details.

Oh look....butterflies!  Finally inked up my Concord and 9th Butterfly Beauty set. Swoon!  For this one, I used Distress Inks (huff/putt technique prior to stamping)...

and Memento inks for this one. I need a 'greener' green, me thinks, but it's still pretty in real life...

We're fortunate to have a whole slew of designers sharing Spring, Pink and Orchid creations today: Guest Designers from Frantic Stamper as well as my talented team-mates. After seeing the range, you'll be impressed and filled with ideas to design a card/project of your own to bring to the gallery.  See you there!

So glad you dropped by today; your visit is both welcomed and deeply appreciated!


  1. A trio of delight for sure, Carol! Beautiful butterflies in wonderful colors. I like how a couple of them go off the card, and the one full image frames the sentiment so terrifically. Well done! Hugs! :)

  2. oooohhh...those butterflies are beautiful!

  3. Pretty Carol! The "huff puff" technique works for me too! I hope you get some sunshine soon, have a happy Sunday! Wendy

  4. Miss Carol...both of your cards are so beautiful, love your sweet butterflies!

  5. Such pretty Spring butterflies, Carol. I love your colors and CAS design. TFS Hugs..

  6. I always love to see what you do with butterflies, Carol. The Distress ink gives a spotty look that's just perfect for their wings.

  7. You definitely 'huffed and puffed' up two more awesome creations. The mean old storybook wolf from The Three Little Pigs needs to see how huffing and puffing can be used to create nice things as opposed to blowing apart houses!

    Gorgeous colors and sweet sentiment panel :)

  8. Those butterfly cards are beautiful in these spring colors! Swoon!

  9. BEAUTIFUL butterflies!! Love both of your cards! So pretty!

  10. Simply lovely, Carol ... both of them ... those huffley fluttery butterflies are gorgeous! Hugs, Anita :)
