Flight of Butterflies

Here's my post for today....
This is my take on a card that was made recently at Berkeley Gardens, by Hazel Eaton.
I chose to use the shades of purple, starting with white card, ran through and embossed using the butterfly folder, then applied black soot onto the folder and ran through again, this gave the darker background, l then inked over the embossed area with Faded Lilac, and once dried used a little gilding wax to highlight....finished off by attaching the die cut butterfly.
I do hope you have enjoyed visiting my blog, please leave any comments, Thank You.

Balloons card

Hi, this is my chosen card for todays post......
This was made recently at a workshop at Sunrise Crafts, designed by Bhanu.....
The main card started off by folding as in a A5 portrait card and then folded the front in half again.
The backgrounds were used from on of Heartfelt Creations pads....the main image was made by using one of Poppy stencils, ran through to emboss and then coloured using distressed inks, taking care to not colour over each other, using paper to mask off. These were all then matt and layered to complete the card....Thanks for stopping by and l look forward to reading your comments.

Dragonfly card

Hi, here's my post for today....
For this one l chose one of Toni Arthurs digi-stamps, and decided to on the colours of black and white, l do love the simplicity of black and white. I printed out two of the designs so therefore had the spare dragonfly to decoupage. I used my Spectrum Noirs different shades of grey to colour the flowers and added pearls inside most of them. Coloured the dragonfly and decoupaged that. Matt and layered as shown in the photo and added the white card candy to finished off....a card for any occasion.
Many thanks for visiting my blog and please leave me your comments.

My post for today was an order for a 21st birthday, namely James, and l was asked if l could make it with old cars, Morris Minors and Anglia's, so l sourced the images and cut them out and decoupaged them onto the main card, which l made using a satin old gold coloured card, matted onto gold mirror.
My customer was very pleased with the finished card.

Linda's Birthday

This is my chosen card for today's post......
I made this card for one of my very best friends birthday, as her birthday has already passed it is now o.k. for me to post.......
The card itself was made as a tri-fold card with the front having an aperture cut out of it....The collection that l used was from the Heartfelt range of both stamps and dies, namely Cascading Fuchsia's. I stamped and coloured the main image on the inside and then l made the 3D flowers and arranged them around the top of the aperture that was decorated with the frame cut from one of Tattered Lace dies....Just to say she loved and has made one for a relative herself.
Thank you for visiting my blog, please leave me your comments.

Envelope Easel card

Here's my post for today....
A group of my friends came to mine and we did a little workshop together and made cards in this style, all of them turned out so different, we were all very pleased with the finished cards.
For a change l chose an envelope for the easel part, attached to a 6 x 6 white card, l chose shades of beige, l plain and the other a dotty design. These were used for matting and layering, The tag inside was cut using one of my dies, and also used some patterned paper. Attached two butterflies for embellishment. The flowers were cut from vellum, embossed with white embossing powder and coloured with distressed inks. These were finished off with pearls inside. Thanks for stopping by your comments would be very welcome.

Abi and Rosie's Birthday

Here's something a little different for my post today.....
I have twin grand-daughters, both at Uni. so l decided to make a little something different for their 20th birthday's....I bought the appropriate letters, covered them with decopatch paper....l then made flowers and die cut leaves and butterflies. these were then placed around the project....I was quite pleased with the finished projects, and the girls were thrilled with them and have placed them in their rooms at Uni.
Thanks for stopping by, please let me know what you think would be greatly appreciated.


This is a recent completed project from the new Peerless Designs book folding C.D.....
Not just folding but cutting as well, a little time consuming but very rewarding.....

Ethan's 3rd Birthday

Here's my post for today...
Card l made for my Great Grandson's birthday.....
The card itself is an A5 landscape white card and l found the main background within my stash....
I used a stencil that l have had for ages, Wendy Stenton's l believe, cut it out of a darker blue and shadowed it with a lemon to pick out the stars in the backing paper. Sourced the pictures of George the Pig, and placed them around the card....It was his birthday on Tuesday and he loved it.....good job done l think.....
Please leave me your comments and thank you for stopping by.
