Rose and Lemon Butterfly

Hello

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

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.

Yellow and Rose Dragonflies

Hello

I have another card to share today using one of my favourite stamps.

I stamped a section onto a topper I had covered with acrylic paint in shades of pink and yellow.

I made a medley of flowers using a Spellbinder die.

80th Birthday Card

Hello

I have an 80th Birthday Card today to share which I was commissioned to make.

WP_20140502_016

I cut various dies in co-ordinating shades of pink and made a collection of florals.

I added a lovely background die-cut and various flourishes cut in foam.

Obviously, as its an 80th Birthday Card I added a wire “80” behind the rose…..subtle.

Finally add a butterfly and the card is complete.

Thanks for visiting.

Stamping in Burgundy

Hello

Another card today featuring another myriad of stamps, including a Butterfly from Chocolate Baroque, an assortment of vintage and travel stamps and a map background stamp, all in burgundy.

I ripped the edge around the stamped images and distressed the edges with the same inkpad.

A simple matt of a co-ordinating coloured background card and some Spellbinder Bitty Blossoms and Flower Creations, together with a couple of Sizzix flourishes is all that is required to finish this card off.

Oooops. I forgot to put the centre in the Flower Creations prior to taking the photo, so it looks much more “finished” in the flesh.

See you again soon, with hopefully a “finished” card.

Thinking of Autumn

Hello again

I hope you are enjoying the Bank Holiday!

However, it is nearly September and Autumn will soon be here. Autumn is a season I love.  I love a warm fire and a nice comfy jumper with big fluffy slippers.

So bearing that in mind, I would like to share this card, which is very different.

I have collage stamped a background using various stamps, including a harlequin, a flourish, a text, a floral background and a border stamp.

I then added a Cut, Fold & Tuck Die from Spellbinders, the large Floral Burst together with some Sizzix flourishes in black foam.

Simple addition of co-ordinating backing paper together with black matts and some highlight inking and the card is finished.

All for now.

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!
