Sketch Butterfly

A bargain butterfly! This butterfly stamp was an ex-demo stamp so was a little grubby but a bit of stazon cleaner and a scrub and it looks fine. It certainly stamps ok! All this card was made using the same paper I just colour tinted some with a purple ink pad.

Gilded Cat

I had inspiration while I was ironing would you believe ! I wondered what Linda's cat would like gilded so I left the ironing and got on with some gilding - i'm now covered in gold Lol but I have a lovely gold card to show for it! What do you think? should I have just got on and finished my ironing?? Mouth At Side

Cat in Paradise

More of Linda's beautiful stamps - I hadn't actually realised how many of her stamps I had Open Mouth . I love this cat stamps because the cat is so very elegant - I have given him a glittery bindi at his neck. The thinking of you stamp was a birthday present from my middle son Smile

The sunrise stamp has been stamped twice and the gold sun cut out. I matted it onto some paper that is embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder. Some white dots and reibbon are the finishing touches.

Happy Christmas

Another christmas card for my order of two. This time for a child so I thought this snowman might be good.
I added some touches of snow with stickles. Words and letters from a Brenda Pinnick kit.


For this weeks challenge I started with the paper artsy number stamp. I stamped it with brown versafine then punched the edge with a stampin' up binder punch and inked the edges. I stamped lots of other images using the same ink and inked all the edges. The daisy was then stam,ped onto white paper and cut out - bindis have been added to the centre.
The butterfly has been made to sparkle with stickles and a bindi body. I finished it off with a phototurn and a couple of brads.

Christmas Already?

Another order this time for two christmas cards! I actually quite enjoyed making this cause I've not done anything christmassy for a while. I managed to fit in some ribbon and a sprinkling of sparkles so I'm happy Smile

Embossed Card

Here is a dry embossed acceptance card I made today. I wanted to keep it as simple as possible so I only added a ribbon and small butterfly. I don't do dry embossing often so I was pleased with the end result!
