Welcome to the Club Scrap Artists Blog hop.
I hope you came over here from

For allthe participant see the
main Club Scrap Blog.
So I sat down and started to think what to
do. I am from the easy techniques and
then I found this wonderful idea on the
Simon Says Stamp Blog. The
watercoloring stencil technique.
You find the instructions here.
As I have lotsof flowery stencils I start to
make some backgrounds for my cards:
This technique is super quick and easy and you have a lot
of backgrounds in a jiffy!
And with these backgrounds I made the follow 3 cards:
For this card I stamped the butterflies from
This month's Dahlia kit twice. Once on the card and
once on vellum.I cut out the vellum and glued it
on the card. This way it looks more like a
The sentiment on the card is from the
Club Scrap Trees kit.
Here a close up of the layers.
The 2nd card is made with a punched out butterflies
and a sentiment from the Dahlia kit.
I love using my scraps from older kits,so here
you see all the butterflies I cut out with a die
from Tim Holtz.
Then I folded them all in half and glued them
together. Starting with the blue one and then on each
side 2 green ones and ending up with a blue one.
The last blue ones are glued to the card and added
a premade antenna frommy stash.
For card number 3 I used a Club Scrap butterfly
stencil from the Papillon kit and so is the birthday
First I colored the butterfly with dark brown and then
I used a marker to draw the outline of the butterfly.
For the body I used a piece of left over paper from
cutting the card and made this paper bead out of it.
The bead is fasten with a piece of scrappers floss.
Finishing of the card with a few sequins from my stash.
Well, I hope I have given you some ideas to play,

Jennifer has come up with for youon her blog.
