Real Flowers

Hello and welcome

Today's card uses a very old set from Hero Arts called Real Flowers.
I placed them in a row in my Misti and coloured with various markers. I then used a versamark ink pad, stamped over and clear embossed. I then had to add another flower to complete the row. I scored some lines and also stamped the message in black. 
I CASed this idea from Kath, of handmade by Kath  Check out her blog, she does some wonderful projects

Butterflies again!

Hi everyone
I have been missing in action for a few days as we have been having internet problems.
We now have a new router supplied by our ISP and that has speeded things up considerably.
But!  this morning my PC would not connect at all although all the wireless devices did. I spent over 2 hours trying to find a solution and then discovered that I could connect with IE but not Chrome, so I uninstalled it and re-installed, and now it is all good. I don't know why these things mysteriously happen!!
So - to my card
Time is running out for the unstampabelles challenge, so I have made this one.
I used a dark navy card base, and attached a piece of DP (unknown brand)
I diecut my butterfly twice and glued together with Art Glitter glue
The message is from Craftwork Cards which I have had a long time, and I also added 3 blue sequins

Another Butterfly


Todays card uses a butterfly which I cut with my Cameo. The top layer is black card stock, and the bottom layer is a scrap of sparkly card that I had been experimenting with.
The layered oblong was also cut on my Cameo, the files were for one sheet wonders using 12 x 12 papers, so I have cut the whole page of different shapes. You will see more of these on the future!
I added some stamping using Shades Dye Ink in Vanilla cream which toned in nicely. 
The stamps were  Rubber Dance 'round in circles' and the sentiment is by Lawn Fawn


Your Next Stamp #138 - lots of layers (I have 4)

 Hi and welcome
A quick post this morning as the butterfly challenge at Allsorts closes soon.
This is a very simple card, but looks great IRL, as the background dp is very sparkly. Unfortunately it does not show up in the scan. 
I have adhered the piece to my white card base, added a strip of pink edged with a Fiskars punch, cut the word in vinyl, and attached and added a toning butterfly with diamantes for her body

Fun and Laughter days

Hello friends and welcome back

Today's card features an image from Bizzy Becs Store that I was lucky enough to won in a recent challenge.
I have coloured her with Promarkers and diecut her out, adjusting the die to fit the image. I layered a piece of dp on the left side of my base card, added the image and then a sentiment, stamped onto a snippet, fussy cut and raised with mounting tape.
