#122 SpinThe Butterfly wheel with F for Flap fold.

We are  now onto the 6th  letter of the alphabet which is F. Winners results for #121 are  now published in the post below. (Sorry for the slight delay). 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.
  Please note that this Challenge will be running  for 4 weeks and not the usual 2.
You can also enter as many times as you like during this  challenge.
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
Flap fold Card.

Your 6 elements are  French Rose/Flax/Firebrick Red /Feathers/Flowers + your Butterfly.

Here is my inspiration for you. 

I have started  you off with a very simple design and fold. There are so many different ways to make a Flap fold card which I will be showing you over the next 4 weeks so keep checking back both here and on my blog for further inspiration. 

My first card uses Flap fold card/Flax/Firebrick Red/Flowers/Butterfly

My second card uses Flap fold card/Flax/French Rose/Flowers/Butterfly

Version II is for a Diagonal flap Fold.
My Thirdcard uses Flap fold card/Feathers/French Rose/Flowers/Butterfly

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

What a fun challenge site. I have never played here before and just have one question. I looked up French Rose and Firebrick and saw they are Promarkers. I don't own those and I'm not sure if Flax is one or not. I do have similar alcohol blends...are they acceptable? If not, I will just play with flowers, fold and butterfly. TIA for your answer.

The flap fold is one very easy, but I never use it. Thanks for asking to think out of my habits, I wish have time to play. Your cards are both so sweet and inspiring!

Lovely cards Mrs A!

Janis said...

Lovely cards, Mrs. A!! I esp love the one with pink...big surprise coming from this pink lady here!! The patterned paper is so pretty and the bundled ribbon bow is fun and cheery. The pearls add a lovely touch of elegance.

I want to try that flap fold, but I had this shaped one in mind to make first. I'm glad this challenge is open longer than usual, as this month is rather full and has a lot of festivities happening.

Thank you for another delightful challenge!!!

This is such a wonderful and fun challenge! I have just tried to join in but I'm not sure my link up worked!

Kampin' Karen said...

I was able to link up my card for entry #15. It took me a few days to figure out how I wanted to play! The flap fold was fun!!

Nisha said...

Please delete my entry no. 21 as I got it posted wrongly.

Becca Yahrling said...

Your cards are all so lovely Mrs. A! I am playing just for fun and to show that I am using my last win from you - First Edition butterfly dies. This set is really awesome and I love it so much! I have to say it's my fave butterfly die set!!! Thank you again so very much for your generosity.

Sandy said...

Gorgeous samples Mrs. A, especially that triangle flap -- that's a fun fold to do.

Becca Yahrling said...

I entered a 2nd card using the flap fold, but again, just playing for fun! My goal was to make all of the different fold types, but alas, I already failed. :-( But I'll still try to make as many as I can...
