Foliage Butterfly ......


Made a Birthday Card featuring a die-cut butterfly ......

I started with a white card blank and die-cut a brown spotty frame which was centred on the card blank.

I then stamped a plate in black Archival ink, trimmed this out and coloured with Lyra Brush Markers.  I then die-cut a number of different leaves out of green papers with different designs.  These were gathered into a sprig and applied on the plate as shown.





I then die-cut a butterfly from blue card, applied two pale blue gems, raised the wings and applied in the centre of the leafy sprig.

The sentiment  (Happy Little Stampers) was stamped in black Archival ink, matted on more blue card and applied to the plate as shown.  The plate was attached in the frame on foam pads to give some dimension to the card.

This card is available for sale in my Etsy Shop - click HERE to go there to have a look ....

Flamingo Birthday ......


Good Monday Morning to you all  & hope your day is brilliant !!  Made this very pink Birthday card the other day .....

I used a C6 white card blank and cut a matt out of pink card.  Onto the matt I attached a die-cut oblong in white card and applied a die-cut flamingo which I had coloured with Copics. 

The banner at the bottom was made by layering dark pink recycled packaging, white card and flamingo Washi tape and applying a die-cut heart garland.  The heart was attached onto the flamingo matt and glittered with Stickles glitter glue.

I applied a vertical strip of the dark pink card and stamped the sentiment 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY' onto white card which again was die-cut and matted as shown on foam pads.  The pink matt was then attached to the card blank on foam pads to finish.

This card is for sale in my Etsy Shop ...... click HERE to go have a look !

Fashionable ? ......



Here is a set of ATC's made for a monthly swap over on UK Stampers Forum whose theme is 'numbers' ......

I used black corrugated packaging from some cologne as the base (trying to upcycle !) and cut this to 2.5 x 3.5 inches.  I then stamped with a numbers stamp in Versamark ink and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder.  I then edged two of the sides with black & white bunting design Washi tape.

I then stamped and trimmed some fashion stamps in Memento black ink on white card and coloured the dresses with pale blue Copic marker.  The images were applied to the cards on foam pads.  The words 'In Style' were stamped, trimmed out & coloured with the same ink before sticking in place.

Some small adhesive gems were added to each ATC to finish ....

April Square .....



We have a Monthly swap between 12 of our members over on UK Stampers Forum where we swap a handmade 4 x 4 inch square with one of the group.  It runs for 12 months  so we each get a square made by another member.

This is my square for April ......  I used a set of Dylusion stamps and stamped some on Brusho coloured watercolour paper (birds) and the rest on white card (flowers & leaves)  I trimmed all elements out and painted the flowers & leaves with Twinkling H2O's so they have a lovely mica sheen !

The square was cut from used cereal packet card (trying to upcycle) and was covered with some green birdcage design paper and some layers of Washi tape.

The 'April' was stamped in Archival ink before assembly as shown and then I applied all elements along with a couple of die-cut feathers in dark pink card which were stamped with an alpha stamp in more Archival ink. The birds were 'grounded' with black Micron pen and some white penwork applied on some of the elements.

I edged the square with plum coloured Versamagic chalk ink to finish.

I really enjoyed making this little square and was totally absorbed for a couple of hours making it .... it is now on its way to its recipient !
