Classically Brown

It is sometimes necessary to produce a card in a hurry and today’s card is perfect.

It uses the wonderful Spellbinders Butterfly Magic die cut in cream and layered on brown.


The butterfly section was again cut in brown and trimmed to add an additional layer. By slightly offsetting the image creates the elusion of a shadow.


A simple border using the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Accents frames the butterfly nicely.

A very quick card!

Green Flower card

I have used a very beautiful floral stamp from Hobby Art and is the main feature of this card.

I started by stamping in black onto a card which I had covered with various shades of acrylic paint.  I extended the stamp with a fine black pen and coloured the image in with watercolour pencils, before matting onto a paler green cardstock.


For the background I used a co-ordinating piece of patterned paper which I ran through an embossing folder and highlighted the embossing with a green inkpad. The same inkpad was used to edge all of the card pieces to define each of the layers.

I cut a piece of lattice using a Spellbinders die out of pale yellow card.

The crochet lace I made using white cotton thread and ironed with starch to the right size using pins.


The white in the crochet lace highlights the white colouring in the floral stamp.

A simple and small stamp but a very big effect!

All for now.
