Butterfly die cut Twinchies


I have some quick Twinchies to share today using my favourite colour and favourite theme….sorry.



I was really pleased with the background so took a picture before I covered it up.


I hope you like them.  It’s been a while since I made some twinchies and I really enjoyed doing these and really want to make some more now.

Thanks for visiting.

Have a good day!

Butterflies in Blue


I hope you are having a lovely Bank Holiday, we have rain here so I am very happy to be tucked up inside.  I have just enough time to share a card I have made.


I started by stamping a selection of butterflies from Chocolate Baroque and filled in the gaps using a section of a text stamp.  I stamped in Versamark and used pastels in blues and greens.


I then cut some butterflies using a Spellbinders die and letters from an XCut die.


I used Sue Wilsons background die and cut into sections to sit behind the various layers.

I hope you like it.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

My Birthday project I am sharing is Birthday Daisies In Blue


I started with a daisy stamp from Hobby Art for the main topper and then colourised the topper with chalks and further stamped a medley of flourish, text and butterfly stamps in co-ordinated inks. I matted this onto cardstock which I embossed using an embossing folder.


For the background I used a large piece of turquoise handmade paper which I gently frayed the edges.


Then the die-cuts, of which there are plenty, all from Spellbinders, I used:

Bitty Blossoms in White

Wings of Hope in Turquoise

Damask Motifs in Turquoise

Fleur De Lis Motifs in Dark Metallic Blue

Medallion Three in Dark Matt Blue


I added a few silver skeleton leaves around the flowers and a few flower and dragonfly gems.


I hope you like my project and thanks for visiting my blog.
