Butterflies and Scraps

 A slimline card made of ready made scraps lol.

The background was a leftover scrap from a background masterboard I made last year with an assortment of stamps.The craft mag freebie butterlies were stamped onto scraps of inky paper the orange one was a scrap of shaving cream background and the sentiment is from a Chocolate Baroque set.

Diamond Point Card and Eco Papers

 Thought I would have a go at the Diamond Point card which is popular at the moment and after watching Jo Channon on The Craft Store this after-noon she reminded me about the eco/boled papers I made about 5 years ago and have been lying forgotten since.

The only trouble was finding any I wanted to even partially cover up lol.I silver embossed the image from an AALL&CREATE set which was gifted to me from a FB friend-thank you Wendy.

Anniversary Cards

 Morning and I have three family anniversay cards to make for the next coupls of months.

I stencilled a background with stencils from Artisan Designs,Creative Expressions and a couple that have lost packaging-using oxide ink pads.

I then stamped Chocolate Baroque "Movie Strip Collage" ove the top and added slight colouring with the same oxide colours.Script was added with a craft mag freebie stamp and on the one to be hand delivered I added a gem from stash on the tag.

Was quite pleased with the result so made all three with just a slight colour difference.

Finally Sons Birthday Project

Well I finally finished what started as a card for my eldest sons birthday,I said last month had everything ready-stamps inks and idea (as he grows veggies and tomatoes so thought these stamps were perfect)but no mojo-well let me start!!!

First of all I thought ooh a tri card stamped everything and stuck down but hadn't left a little inbetween to allow for depth-cut the pieces out and decided to make a hanging but made a mess of that so all stuck down onto black cardstock and into a frame I bought for 50p from a charity shop but we don't need to tell him that ssshhhh.No cardstock long enough so had to use washi tape to hide the join which looked odd so used some more in between the first two cards too.

Finally got it framed and thought oops should have took all the pics before framing so out they came again!!!

I smooshed the cardstock with oxide inks,stencils from Creative expressions and Artisan Designs.All stamps from AALL& CREATE which were stamped twice and layered after colouring with promarkers.Garden tools were heat embossed onto matt mirri card,butterfly sticker/Ladybird and metal snail from stash.The flower pots were a digi image from Patties Creations and fussy cut,script stamp was used and my fave texture stamp round borders.
