Mojo Monday 280 + Lots-O-Cards

I am uploading a lot of cards for one post, but one card led to another and another...well, and another. 
The first card is my submission for MOJO Monday 280. 

You can see the sketch provided 
for this week in the second photo.

I spent some time at our Assisted Living Center today 
giving a presentation on a few paper crafts. 

This is the card that residents there had an to opportunity to make...

which led to another card with a vellum embossed butterfly. 
Which led to...

...another card. 

Added more elements and pattern to this design. 
I am a little partial to pattern in a card.

Ok, that is all for tonight. 
Hope you enjoyed looking. 
Let me know if you have any questions about
the techniques or materials used.

MOJO Monday 279 Happy Birthday Wishes

Started out yesterday with ROY G BIV on my mind. Who you say? You know...Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Indio and Violet. I cased a card very similar to my card you see here:
 Simple and clean (card on the right). On the left the design became a notepad cover. 

Using the Elegant Butterfly punch, I punched Cherry Cobbler, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz (I think this one is an old color), Baja Breeze, and Perfect Plum, then Whispher White. I glued them directly on top of each other. I think you can catch a hint of the colors underneath the top, Whisper White butterfly. 

Later I moved on to the MOJO Monday 279 card design and still was into using rainbow colors! I repeated the same butterfly stack as listed above and added it to the design.

Elegant Butterfly Punch, Scallop Oval Punch and Large Oval Punch

Sentiment is from the stamp set Petite Pairs. Here you can see all the colors of the butterfly showing.
