Envelope Card and Chocolate Baroque

 Morning and welcome to my new follower KATHY  

Would also like to thank another blogging friend CAROL  for sending a beautiful thinking of you all card from NZ.

 Not made a criss cross/envelope card for quite a while so decided to make one for the challenge at Butterfly Spot-using an envelope card(two versions to choose from) add a butterfly and use light green/soft pink and pale cream think I covered everything.

The B.paper is K&C from the Dawn Bibby era at QVC many years ago,ribbon from stash,the Magnolia and Butterfly are both stampsfrom Chococlate Baroque.

The butterfly was stamped onto P.paper (twice and layered)from The Works-the Magnolia was watercoloured with Art By Marlene watercolours and cut with a Spellbinders frame.

Birthday Cake and New Stencil

 Late today but the card I am sharing was made trying out my new stencil from MFT-thank you Lisa.

I used Distress inks through the stencil,then offset the stencil with more colour-the pre-coloured birthday cake was cut from an Art By Marlene paper pad and the stamped sentiment was a craft mag freebie.

The clear dewdrop was added after I found a small black ink mark from goodness knows where???

Sparkling Butterfly

 Morning and here we are October already!!!

I have two DT posts today and the second one is for the Add Sparkle challenge at Craft Rocket.

Now if you remember the candle box card I made-well I bought a journal and it came in  a see through sturdy box so I decorated it to give the card in as a gift this week.

I found the strip of paper in my oddments drawer (well one of them lol) and I heat embossed in silver the Butterfly from Chocolate Baroque.

NOW I must have took about 20 pics off this in different rooms,in a box and using my daylight lamp in the end I gave up and used the best two---the reason is the P.paper is a delicate shade of green and nowhere near the colour shown???


oops tragedy averted there instead of uploading pic pressed delete good job it was still in basket!!!

Graduation Card

 I had a request for a graduation card for someone who had done a vetinarian course and this was only the 2nd graduation card I have ever done so hope it was okay.

 

Now the truth is a made a card even too a pic so I have actual proof I made it-went to take it to the person concerned on Friday and can I find this card ??? can I heck have gone through everything in my craft room and nothing so this was a hasty last minute replacement -so now i suppose the original will turn up now!!! 


The B.paper was from my scrap drawer-the sentiment was cut from an Art By Marlene pad -the mortar board hats were a free google image resized, fussy cut and put onto 3-D foam pads-the dog and cat stamps were craft mag freebies.

Butterfly Shaker

 My post today is actually 4days late sorry ladies and is my last post for Simply create Too.

The challenge is make a shaker card and this card was practically made with leftovers -the two pieces of scrap paper from stash and I stamped on them with some craft mag freebie stamps -the top piece of cardstock I found already with the aperture cut and aceatate and 3-D foam pads already in place for another project but unused.

The Chocolate Baroque butterfly was already stamped on the smooshed background so just cut down to fit and stamped the Chocolate Baroque sentiment on an offcut and whilst looking for something to put in the haker I found these little flat black butterflies in a drawer-had them for years -so more neglected stash used.

Anniversary Card

 A late posting today and have an anniversary card to show that I made for my eldest Son and DIL for next month but am safe as they don't read my blog---very rude of them!!!

The very back  paper I made with a few stamps and distress ink-then the next P. piece was made scoring the cardstock every inch and then draging a brown and green distress ink pad down the card to produce the wood effect.The small scrap piece was from stash and the stamp is from Chocolate Baroque stamped twice and 3-D the flower and paper pieced the tag part after stamping onto a book page,the stamped sentiment is also Chocolate Baroque-the image was watercoloured with my Art by Marlene watercolours.
