Butterfly birthday


This card is for the sketch for Flutter by Wednesday 248:


Papers are some old Papermania ones (all offcuts of pieces previously used). The butterfly is an Anna Griffin stamp inked with versamark and heat embossed with silver detail embossing powder. I then cut into a frame that came with the Papermania papers and inserted the butterfly. The banner piece down the middle is a scrap left over from a silver mirror embossed piece made with a folder with my eBosser.

Vintage gold


A golden Christmas card with a vintage picture. The picture is another I found in my stash - no idea where it came from. The panel on the left is vellum, run through my xyron - the script is embossed although you can't see that here. The strips of golden gems were from That Craft Place and the panel on the right is a piece of flocked Anna Griffin paper left over from a kit from a couple of years ago.

The Cheerful Stamp Pad Challenge 67 Your choice


Exciting news - I was asked by Vicki Romaine to join The Cheerful Stamp Pad Design Team! This is my first challenge with the team.

Challenge 67 is 'your choice' and it's sponsored by Bombshell.

Please click on the challenge link and see what the rest of the Design Team have made and, hopefully, join in with the challenge - I'd love to see you there.

I based my card on the sketch given for our sponsor's August Bombshell challenge, so I will enter it there:

For my card I used some of the Indian Warrior digital set kindly supplied by Bombshell. I coloured the images with spectrum noirs. The paper behind the warrior is My Mind's Eye Alphabet Soup Girl 'sweet song' and the striped paper is from a pack by Acid drops & whatnots. The sentiment was generated on my dymo letratag.
