butterfly kisses

I have made this card from one of my favourite colour combo's.
The background is stamped with Penny Black  'Penmanship' an oldie but a goody! The sentiment was printed from my computer and die cut with a Go Create die. The butterfly is a Spellbinders

Blue and Green

I am needing some children's birthday cards, so thought this one filled the bill for a few challenges as well. The card and papers are from my stash, and the wee boy is a digi (I will check out who's it is) The greeting is from a new stamp I bought today - a words set by Sullivans.

at the beach!

Today's card features one of the very first stamps that I ever bought. It was one of a set of 4 by Provo Craft - all little beach scenes - they are so cute.
I stamped with Brilliance graphite black and embossed with clear ep. I have coloured with Promarkers and made it into a shaped card with a Go Create die. I have done faux stitching around the edge.

Pink and Purple

A pretty card I made this morning before going out.
The card is a pale pink mottled colour (from my stash)
The background is randomly stamped with Hero Arts-Old French Writing. I then ran a piece of vellum through my cuttlebug with the paisley folder and tore a piece off which I placed on the right hand side. I then attached a piece of sheer pink ribbon, and then layered my stamped image on top. I don't know the name of the stamp as I borrowed it from a friend a while ago!

Black and white + 1

Unfortunately my scanner has made this a little pink - IRL it is more into the mauve shades of the ribbon.

I have used a lovely new (to me) stamp set from Cornish Heritage Farms, and I have popped the circle up on mounting tape. The wings of the butterflies are also raised.

Today's card features a gorgeous stamp from Crafty Individuals, and a new background technique. It was done bt dabbing distress inks onto an acrylic block, spritzing with water and then applying it to the card. I really like how this has turned out, and will try this agin in a different colour scheme.
