Spring Flowers and butterflies

Good morning crafty peeps!
Ok, so I hoe you're not fed up of butterflies? No? Oh good cos here's another!

This card is a bit simpler than yesterday's, but still involves 2 butterflies. I die cut them from Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock (the latter being a bit of Core'dinations I had left). The middle panel was stamped in Pear Pizzazz with the hexagons from Butterfly Basics, then embossed with the Spring Flowers EF. I also stamped the same hexagons onto the card blank.

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments and punched with the Word Window. I finished with Basic Pearls for a touch of added elegance.

These are the challenges I'm entering my card into....

I hope you have a wonderful weekend with lots of crafting, family time, or whatever you enjoy!

A screwed up butterfly!

I hope you have had a good week? Mine has definitely had ups and downs, but I have some quality time with Mike to look forward to this weekend!

Today I am sharing a card I made on Wednesday. I really do have a thing for the Butterfly Framelits at the moment, so here they are again!

I really do love how delicate this particular one is...very lacy looking! I did something a little different with this one...I die cut the top butterfly then drew round it and cut out the bottom solid one. Then, whilst I was rubbing out the pencil lines, I annoyingly caught the edge and creased it! But, then I had an idea...I screwed the butterfly up, as you would, but nope, I didn't throw it away!

Instead, I inked the butterfly with Melon Mambo, and it really brought out the creases to look like folds of the wings! I also inked the die cut one, and then rubbed with Versamark and heat embossed with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Emboss. 

The window was created by using the Window Frames Collection Framelits, and I stamped the flowers from Painted Petals in the window. I finished with Rhinestone Basics Jewels and the sentiment from Butterfly Basics, which I fussy cut out using my paper snips.

I should say that this card is an A5 card, which is why I can get all the yummy white space with such a big butterfly!

I have a couple of challenges I would like to enter my card into...

I hope you have a lovely day today and a fab weekend planned!

Sweet Baby

Good morning!
It's our new challenge at CAS-Colours and Sketches this week, and it's a sketch...

Isn't it a fabby sketch? I decided to add to my stock of new baby cards....

I used my favourite baby set, Sweetest Gift. I stamped the sentiment onto the Vellum Cardstock in Baked Brown Sugar, and coloured the letters to match the lovely Lullaby DSP.

I added the circle sentiment which I heat embossed in Clear Stampin' Emboss after I cut it out, to give it a little shine. The Pumpkin Pie Chevron Ribbon and pearls gave a lovely finishing touch, don't you think??

What will you make for your entry? Remember to keep it CAS and follow the sketch...we can't wait to see! :)

A bit of orange...

Good morning!
Today I'm showing you the last card I made on my very productive Wednesday last week...

I have used Kinda Eclectic and Lots Of Thanks. I stamped the sunburst in Tangelo Twist, then die cut it using the Window Frames Framelits. I stamped my sentiment in Basic Grey.

I added my double layered butterfly and finished with a Candy Dot. I know this is an unusual colour combo, but I think I like it!

I am entering my card into a couple of challenges...

Four Feathers for a birthday

Brrrr it's cold and very windy this morning! I really am looking forward to garden needs a lot of work doing to it!

Today I have a card I made using a little strip of DSP I found whilst looking for something else!

I then stamped and heat embossed the 2 larger feathers from Four Feathers in Gold Stampin' Emboss and the small one in Baked Brown Sugar. I then die cut them using the matching dies, which when bought together gets you 15% off!

I tied a piece of Linen Thread in a bow and finished with part of a sentiment from the Remembering Your Birthday set.

I am linking my card to a sketch challenge this morning...


I will be battling the wind for the school run and my walk to work this morning...I hope you have a lovely day, whatever you're doing!

A male birthday card!

Good morning!
After yesterday's snow today is gorgeous and sunny! It is also back to school day...I'm going to miss my little man...we've had a lovely week off!

Anyway, here is one of the cars I made last week....a man birthday card!

As you will notice, I don;t tend to make a lot of man cards...I'm not very good at them, but I quite like this one! I first of all stamped my white panel with one of the stamps from Celebrate Today in Marina Mist. I then paper pierced around the edges of the Marina Mist panel using the Paper Piercing Essentials Pack and the Piercing Tool.

The letters were made using the Simply Pressed Clay, and once dried I used the same stamp to add some colour to them. I attached them using Tombow Multipurpose Glue. 

I really like how this came out and I think I will be playing with the clay letters a lot more in the near future!

I used a sketch challenge for my layout today...
