Butterfly HELLO Card and A Magenta Shoe Birthday Card

A card using stencil technique I have seen from Jennifer MC Guire, and I like to use again that technique on this card.

Here is how I made my card:

Using Artplorations Butterflies first I spopnged white ink on the orange paper. 

Then I sponged orange ink by moving a bit the stencil, this time I used Distress Ink in orange color (ripe persimmon)

 Here is once more Photo of my card:

My second card is a CAS card using the new stamp set I order from Stamplorations the GROOVY SHOES Set. If you know me since long time I love making shoe is another collection of shoe stamp I have to get in my collection :)

I really like this stamp set and the sentiment is so cool I think.... I took also the Artplorations Retro Circles Stencil and sponged it at my white card stock with purple Distress Ink.

    Hugs, Tammy

  3. Beautiful! I love the shadow effect with the white ink, and your butterflies are so sweet!

  4. The first one is so dreamy Monika, I like the shades of tone on tone used in here, and you are an expert at making shoe cards, this one is no exception.

  5. Beautiful creations Monika. Your are the queen of stamping.
    Hugs Desíre {Doing Life}

  6. Beide Karten sind wieder wundervoll,
    die Schmetterlinge sehen so klasse aus mit dieser Technik (ich werde es auch versuchen)
    LG hellerlittle

  8. Oooh! So cool, Monika! You've given me another idea with that stencil we share! The shoe looks very funky against the stencilled background. Very retro! As for your orange butterfly card - it's stunning!! So glad you could join us at CASology this week!

  9. Beautiful creation, love the soft colouring through the stencil!

    Thank you for sharing with us at Inspiration Destination this week, good luck!
    Hugs Shell xx

  10. Die erste Karte ist toll!!! Die versetzten Schmetterlinge sehen auf dem orangen Hintergrund wunderbar aus.
    Die Schuhkarte gefällt mir ebenfalls sehr gut. Diese Schuhe wagt man kaum zu tragen, dafür braucht man Stützen, um das Gleichgewicht halten zu können *kicher*
    Liebe Grüße,

  11. Beautiful butterfly card Monika and of course you always make fabulous shoe cards!

  12. Wow this is a cool card Monika!! The vivid orange with the sponged white ink makes these already amazing butterflies SPECTACULAR. And that die with its 2 layers of delicious black is perfectly placed on the card. Rounding the corners softens it up a bit which I like a lot..

    Okay now to your high heel card.. So you Monika!! I love it!! Especially the circles. hehehee. Your color choice is fantastic that goes so well with your CAS design.. Great job my friend!!

  13. Such pretty cards, Monika!

  14. Oh I remember when we did this tech.. I love the look then and I love the look now. Great butterflies and color choices. Love the Hello.. The shoe card is awesome. Great cards my friend. Hugs

  15. 2 fab card and thanks for sharing with us at Crafty Catz with our anything goes challenge . Hope to see you again in the new challenge starting friday.

  16. Beide Karten sind ganz klasse geworden Monika - besonders die Schmetterlinge habens mir angetan :) Die Technik muss ich unbedingt auch mal ausprobieren!
    Liebe Grüße, Eunice

  17. Hi Monika. I'm away visiting my new grandson so haven't had much time to comment. The cards here are both lovely. I like the shoes too!

  18. The technique for the butterfly card is absolutely adorable! Wonderful card, Monika! Hugs from your crafty friend stempelfrida

  19. Amazing what you've achieved by using only a stencil and inks and die cut sentiment! So easy, so effective!
    Lol, a new shoe stamp, like you have no one since before. One can never have too many:) do you have many shoes IRL too? That would be my guess. Or you do stamps only due to storage issues, haha. Love the retro effect added by those inked circles. Fun!

  20. Beautiful card. Thank you for sharing with Allsorts 'Birthday' challenge and good luck x Susan x

  21. That butterfly card is so cheerful, Nika, love it! The next time you create a new challenge, it should be inspired by shoes! (I myself am a shoe-aholic, but I only have one shoe stamp...)

  22. Wow!!! Love how gorgeous your orange card is - so beautifully done!! And your show card has spunk, and spice and sassiness! Well done!!

  23. OOH, your butterfly card is so bright and cheerful! I love your shoe card and any girlie would love getting it! You are rocking these cards!

  24. The butterfly card is soooo pretty. The shoe... what can I say? You are an expert at making shoe themed cards! :)

  25. Two simply amazing cards them both but that shoe steals the show here! I love what you did to make it shine. You are so talented my dear. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Get Creative.

  26. Perfect, that two-tone stenciling! And your wonderful shoe card - love it! As soon as I saw those stamps I knew they were made for you!

  27. Monika, great cards! Stencilling is one of my favorite techniques also. Thanks for sharing with us at STAMPlorations CAS Card Challenge. - Sweet Kobylkin

  28. Yeah you! Top pick @ STAMPlorations!

  29. Oh, your stencilling of the butterflies on the first card is so lovely, Monika - I love the orange and the die cut sentiment!!!! Beautiful!!!!
    Your shoe card is so fun and really cute!!! And you got two more top picks!!!! Congrats, my friend, so happy for you!!!!
