My Cupcake Butterfly Card entry for Color inspiration 50

(sorry for using my camera phone in taking this picture, i dont have a high quality camera... cant afford' :( )

I just made this tonight. technically yesterday because its already the 29th of april right now. I started with the card 9 pm yesterday and finished 1:00 am today. well I had to think very well on how i will compose my card. I know my card is a bit more bubbly than the others but you know what guys.. I really like it. It shows my personality. I just want to share my creative side. I love my work. I really did do my best and just let everything out (emotion, inspiration, fun and fab) And one more thing i literally had to scavenge every box, drawer, cabinets i have just to find the colors to use in this project. I had fun! and discovered lots of stuff i havent seen for a long time.

I mostly got my inspiration from Kristina from MACM videos on youtube, twopeas in a bucket and marion from a pieceofcraftdotcom and many more like stampinup. too bad i dont have a lot of craft paper to use. but you know what? i got through it and look at what i made? oh i just love it. I used a yellow shaded paper for my base cardstock, then used brown ink for distresing, buttons, and craft punches i bought locally here in the Philippines like the hbw daisy craft punch and jef teddy bear punch etc... i placed a brown ribbon at the top diagonaly (i like it betterthat way ^,^) i used a butterfly shaped eraser to stamp the butterfly at the side, used the back of a pencil to make the polka dots. i love polka dots by the way. hehehe and i also used beads to make the body of the butterfly and added a bookplate from hallmark at the bottom saying

"Friendship is a fresh bouquet of happy moments"

I chose this line because I love my friends. They are my inspiration and they are my ohana (we call ourselves ohana :a family....)

So... i love it and i made it special so I hope you like it too... Thanks Kristina!


  1. Hello ER, Nice card!What makes it more special is the fact that you were able to do this by using simple materials you found in your drawers. That's what artists do. I am Filipino-Canadian addicted to card making and scrapbooking. I'm currently working on my card for this challenge. By the way, I have some materials {particularly patterned papers} that I can send you for free. I was like you when I was just starting. Now, it's my turn to share the blessings to others like you. You can visit my blog and let me know if you are interested. I can mail them to you. Cheers!

  2. Hey there!! good to see a filipina aside from me enter the KW challenge. good job!!! Talk to you soon!!! I'll be back to visit.

  4. This is great! Love how you used the colors and the butterfly is super cute!!!

  5. Thanks for introducing yourself on my blog. I'm always happy to see other Filipinas in the craft industry. And welcome to blogging! I just started mine a month ago and I'm having so much fun, esp meeting new crafty people on the web. I'm with you, too, with limited supplies. I live in Croatia, where there are no craft stores around. I have to wait till friends come or we go back to visit the US. It's good, though, because it teaches me to be creative and resourceful.
