Blue Butterflies & Moths Journal Page


I have a journal page to share today which I am really pleased with.


It started with the main topper but I thought I would make it bigger by layering onto another background.


I embossed a lime green layer to add a little colour.


I love collage stamping and colouring and hope you like this creation.



Alcohol Pen coloured toppers


What a lovely wet weekend we are having.  I love weather like it, perfect for crafting.

I haven’t much to share today I’m afraid as I have been extremely busy at work, but I did find time to do a spot of colouring, dare I say it, ready for Christmas cards.


I was playing with blending alcohol pens and struggled to see well late at night but overall I’m happy.


I love this Father Christmas image, he looks so cheeky!


Gorgeous reindeer stamps from Hobby Art.


Lastly, a little Boofle, although not for Christmas I may just use him for Christmas anyhow.

Just need to do a billion more.

Oh and make into a card.

Have a great weekend.


An Octagon of Butterflies

It’s another butterfly I am afraid today.  However, I am not sorry to get the most out of the craft materials I have and will endeavour to find new ways of using things.

In this card, I have stamped a butterfly stamp from Chocolate Baroque in the north, south, east and west positions and coloured in using pencils.

A different butterfly from the same set was then stamped onto purple card, cut out and attached giving dimension to the wings.


The corners were chopped away for an octagonal shape and matted onto co-ordinating cardstock.


Simple edging detail to all layers finishes the card off.

Thanks for stopping by today.


Butterflies In A Round

I love Butterflies and I love purple so here is another card featuring both.

I stamped the butterflies to form a circle by stamping at north, south, east and west points, then masking and stamping inbetween. It is more effective when using a variegated inkpad or inking the stamp with 2 shades of colour.

I stamped the butterfly in each corner and paper pricked the areas inbetween.  Simple matting and layering and with the addition of a double layered spellbinders butterfly the card is finished.



One last tip …. It is always worth remembering to remove any pencil marks before sending …. ooops!
