Have wings - will fly.....

.... is the title of the current challenge at CuttlebugMania

My card's top layer was cut out with my stitched rectangle die, and then embossed in the cuttlebug with Butterfly Kisses folder from Craft Concepts
I used the deboss side and coloured them with a Promarker. I also cut my butterfly with my CB layered it, and added Wink of Stella to the top wings

Favourite blue

 Hi everyone.
I have had fun making this card which is called a 'z' fold. I used a black base, which I scored in 2 places with my ScorPal and then a pretty blue dp (one of my favourites) layered onto white for 2 of the panels. The third panel is white with sponged blue edges, and a message stamped. The narrow strip, also scored in 2 places, has layered blue flowers on the first section and the next 2 were stamped, with the flower coloured to match.

bright and cheery!

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well.

Today's card features a lovely background made with oxides, and overstamped with circles from  Rubberdance 'round in circles'. The flowers are from an unbranded set. I diecut the best wishes and the Madera Corner from Memory Box. I added some red gems to the flowers.

Vintage car!

Hi everyone.
Today's card was inspired by a tutorial on StampTV, for making woodgrain backgrounds, and also the lovely mood board at TaylorMade4U

I used a woodgrain embossing folder and swiped it with various shades of brown and black ink. I trimmed it and layered onto some dark green, and then onto my off-white card base. I layered a rectangle of a dp onto cream, and also double layered my image. Sorry I don't have the brand of this stamp, I hope someone may know. I then added the 'journey' message, as I thought it was most suitable for this image. I will enter this at TaylorMade4U,

and also Mixed Media #36 for 'put a stamp on it'

Allsorts for embossing (my background is dry embossed)

Thanks for visiting and have a great week
