#121 Spin The Butterfly wheel with E for Easel.

We are  now onto the 5th  letter of the alphabet which is E. Winners results for #120 are published in the post below. Make sure you check back as it could be you.  Can I please ask that  Winners do acknowledge their prize in the comments on the Winners post as well as emailing their details to me. This way I will know to expect an email.  Please state if you are only playing for fun so that it gives someone else the chance to win.  Challenge is for 2 weeks. 
So we have a brand new wheel to spin and this yr we are going to go straight through the letters of the Alphabet starting with A. 

                                                     Come on in.

Lets Spin the Butterfly Wheel.
Each challenge will be a letter of the Alphabet with  a choice of 3 Colours and 2 Themes all beginning with the chosen letter.
New for this Yr. The 7th element of the wheel is a card shape.
(The discerning amongst you will notice that there is now an added page along the top under the Butterfly Banner called Card shapes.)
There will be a card shape for the letter being used for each challenge and I will be showing a tutorial on this page with hints and tips for making the cards. 
The card shape is not mandatory but if you do use it you will qualify for the top prize without having to combine all of the other 6 elements onto your card. You must of course  use your butterfly.   The shapes will all be easy ones, just a different way to either fold or cut your basic cardbase. 

If you don't want to use the card shape then 
You can either choose a Theme or a Colour from the wheel + Butterfly  to be entered  for the 1st Prize.

If you use a Butterfly + a Theme + a Colour from the wheel then 
you  will  be entered into the 2nd Prize. 
Please state in your post which part of the wheel you are using to play with.

So lets get started.
The wheel is
Easel Card. 

Your 6 elements are  Emerald Green/Egyptian Blue/Eminence* /Embossing Folder/Edges + your Butterfly.
*According to the Spectrum wheel Eminence is a Dark Purple.
Here is my inspiration for you. 

My first card uses Easel card/Emerald Green/Eminence/Edges/Butterfly

Single Easel Card.

My second card uses Easel card/Eminence/Edges /Butterfly

Double Easel Card.

My third card uses Easel card/Egyptian Blue/Embossing Folder /Butterfly

Double Twisted Easel Card.

You can see more details of the cards here on my blog.

Wow! I knew only the simple easel, thanks for the tutorial for the double and the twisted! :)
Your cards are amazing, I couldn't choose a favourite!

I attempted an easel card and hope to be the lucky winner for the top prize! Thank you for organizing another amazing challenge and the prizes offered are fabulous!

What a wonderful assortment of fancy easel cards Mrs. A!! I may actually try this fold, this time around...but in the meantime I uploaded a simpler card design. My success at fancy folds hasn't been too encouraging, so we'll see how it goes, haha!

Suze said...

This is my first attempt at this challenge so hopefully got it right! I have attempted to use all 7 elements.

KT Fit Kitty said...

Wow, I didn't realize there were so many different kinds of easel cards, so impressive! Will I try it, I don't know?! But I love your cards! Great butterfly wheel too - I went with E for Edge with my card - I applied Stickles around the edge of my butterfly's wings. Thanks for the challenge and awesome prizes! Let me think about the Easel card - I never made it with the Dutch Fold or Center Step.

I think easels may be my favourite card fold of all time so you really got me excited with this challenge. Gorgeous samples!

Susan Renshaw said...

Love your easel cards! I must try those double ones...

I tried making a second easelcard because it is my most favorite shape! Thanks for the great challenge.

Wonderful challenge, and I have made a trio of easel cards recently, and this one includes the Egyptian blue, as well as the edge treatment and butterfly.

Jane Willis said...

I just had to come back and play for a second time to show off the gorgeous stamp I won in the last challenge! Thank you Mrs A, I'm going to be using it a lot.

Just about made it this time around but with only one of the elements used. Playing for fun.
