Mum

Hello

Todays card is one of the most special to be made in a year – Mothers Day.

For my favourite person I used my favourite things – butterflies and purple.

A simple but special card!

I hope you like it.

Mum’s Birthday Card

Hello

Today I have my Mum’s Birthday Card to share which I am quite ashamed to say I quickly threw together.

I die cut the vases out of some patterned paper which to me resembled old fashioned crockery, which I thought my Mum would like.

I then raided my ready-made flower collection, which I never use as I tend to make flowers now. That being the case I thought I would be lavish and use loads, so I selected various flowers in a purple theme.

Shaping the vases here is vital to create the true vase shape.

I think she liked it and I wouldn’t be surprised if she will remove each vase to feature on her own cards or scrapbook pages.

Thanks for visiting.

Dad’s Big Birthday

Hello

I hope you are enjoying the sun we are currently having, I myself am hiding from it as much as I can as I prefer the cold (I know I’m weird).

However, I return today with a post. Many apologies for being absent last week, I have been rather busy with my Dad sadly still in hospital (now into 5 weeks), however, this week I thought I would review June birthday crafting which I wasn’t able to post at the time, so here is the first which features my Dad’s Birthday Card for a big birthday.

Totally inspired by my recent visit to Norway, which was so beautiful, I recreated a beautiful Fford by paper piecing a selection of papers representing the mountains, sky and sea.

I added white acrylic paint, very heavy handed to simulate the snow on the very tall mountains.

My Dad is fascinated with Hot Air Balloons, and I have featured them before in previous years, but I thought it would make a perfect venue for the much needed addition of the number 80. I die cut the balloons which I watercoloured and added the numbers. I made the baskets using an oddment of webbing.

I hope you like it.

Rose and Lemon Butterfly

Hello

I have a quick card to share today with a butterfly on unsurprisingly….sorry!

WP_20150423_19_08_52_Pro

I started with a print using a spellbinder die which I then cut using a label shape.

I added a few matts and flourish dies together with my butterfly…of course and the card is finished.

A quick and simple card but bright and jolly I think.

Thanks for visiting my little blog today.

TTFN.

Butterflies and Cogs Art Journal Page

Hello

I have a page of my rapidly growing Art Journal to share today.

I started with the butterfly stamps from Chocolate Baroque and the page grew from there.

I used some Sizzix diecut cogs….

WP_20150303_018

I coloured the butterflies using pencils…

This was the background before the diecuts….

The 3D paste and clear embossing shows up better in real life but is visible here…
