Pink Roses, Blue Butterflies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA 6 x 6 tent card made using the Graphic 45 “Botanical Tea” Collection. I’ve distressed it a little by roughing round the edges as this collection can be used to make both very contemporary or vintage style cards. The colours in this collection are lovely and there is a lot of different subjects within the collection to make many different types and styles of card. I added a little Stickles to the rose on the topper for a bit of sparkle. Hope you like it x

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAn A5 Wedding card made using the Spellbinders Majestic Labels Twenty-Five dies. A very simple colour scheme – just white and holographic silver mirri card. I just layered the different elements, running the white crinkle ribbon behind the central stamped panel. The butterfly is 3 sizes of the same butterfly, layered up with 4 gems in the centre. I used a heart dazzler in the centre of the bow to add a little bling and finish the card off. Hope you like it x

A Good read recyled

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI used an old book to make this with. The pages are turned in on themselves – I just took handfuls of pages by eye, no specific amount – and put a thin layer of glue over the top and bottom of the book to make it a solid odject before decorating. The flowers and butterflies I used to decorate the book are white, foiled and die-cut butterflies and flowers from “Aspire Crafts”. I’ve used various shades of Distress Inks to colour them, before fixing them to the book with “Pinflair Glue and added a few gems to finish. I really enjoyed making this and love the end result. Hope you do too x

Beautiful Butterflies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAn A5 card I’ve made with some new products, soon to be available from Aspire Crafts. The butterflies are beautiful in their natural state – white with silver or gold foiling – and they take a variety of mediums which change their appearance in so many ways. On this card I have coloured them with distress inks. The vines in the background have been stencilled with distress inks over textured card. I stitched a border around the outside edge of the card, and also down the centre of the card through the butterflies. I really enjoyed working with these products and am very happy with the end result x

Loving Hearts

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHere are 3 MDF heart tag hangings that I have decorated with Craftwork Cards papers. I have used the “Time Flies” Collection for the middle heart, and the “Vintage Boho” Collection for the other 2 hearts. Decorating¬† MDF shapes and cabinets are one of my favourite pastimes, and I can lose myself for several hours becoming completely absorbed in it. I’m sure that many other crafters experience the same when they are enjoying themselves with a project. Hope you like them x

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

A Wonderful Day

An MDF tag I decorated a while back. Not sure where the papers are from, but I have it in my craft room. The sentiment makes me feel good and reminds me to be cheerful whatever the weather xOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
