Sugar Nellie & A Spoonful of Sugar


This week's challenge over at A Spoonful of Sugar is "to die for"! You need to use die cuts on your project. I decided to make an aperature card with the help of my Oval Nestabilities and used two very sweet Sugar Nellie stamps. They are so much fun to color and these two seemed to go well together. I added a few butterflies to the front of the card by using my Martha Stewart butterfly punch. The images are glued back to back with some fishing wire in beween which goes up under the DP on the card. This way they are suspended and will rotate through the oval aperature. My son, suggested a little trick. Just "wind" up the images a few times before closing the card and then when it is opened, the images will twirl inside the aperature!


Here is the second image:



  • Stamps: Sugar Nellies Elisabeth Bell images available through Funky Kits
  • Ink: Memento
  • Paper: SU Whisper White, Crate
  • Coloring: Copic Markers
  • Embellies: Butterflies- Martha Stewart Punch

Have a fantastic day and thanks for stopping by!
