A Butterfly Kiss

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA card I made for my Step-mums birthday this month. She absolutely adores butterflies so I always put a butterfly on her card, or as in this case, its all butterflies. The butterflies are all double cut from Craftwork Cards “Kitsch” Collection and layered, with 2 self adhesive yellow pearl in their centre. I set them out like this because I thought the 5 butterflies set out like this resemble a kiss. Hope you like it x

“All things are Possible

I have used a number of different items on this card. The man and birds are both Tim Holtz stamps whOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAich I have stamped with Adirondac dye, over a “Memory Box” stencil of the sun’s rays. I used Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks to ink over the stencil and I’ve then splashed it all with a little water to simulate a little rain. The sentiment is a Wendy Vechi – Studio 490 stamp which I also stamped with Adirondac dye and then used Vintage Photo Distress Ink to edge the whole image before layering it onto white and dark brown card. I’ve echoed the layering on the base card and then mounted the stamped image layer onto the base card with 3d foam. Hope you like it x

50 Golden Years

A 50th Anniversary card made using Kanban “Golden Anniversary” from the “All Occasion Kit” for the gardener at work to give to his wife.I used “Glossy Accents” on top of the bottle and glasses to make them shine. He said that he hadn’t given her a card for the last 30 years so she would be very surprised. They were both delighted with it. I would hope that my husband never stops giving me cards xImage
