Hello there fellow paper lovers!

Well I think I am on a roll using the Hero Arts butterfly stamp from the Antique Engravings set. I love this little guy as it is so realistic looking and I love blending colours with my prismacolors and gamsol.

I have used the sketch from the current FTL #114 (and isn’t it a beauty!).

I am also entering the blue butterfly card into a new challenge over at JayGee’s Nook where the inspiration photo is this. I got my inspiration from the  gorgeous blue/turquoise colours!!

And here is it….

And just to be different from the blue butterfly card, I am entering the pink version into the Scrapbook Boutique Butterfly challenge where at least 2 butterflies need to be used in a design.


Stamps: Hero Arts Antique Engravings
Ink: Versafine Ink – Onyx Black
Card: Regal Craft Card (white square single fold)
Other Supplies: Prismacolor pencils, gamsol, stubbs, Kaisercraft pearls, Wendy Irving ‘Hello’ and ‘Sending you a smile’ rub ons.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Welcome Sweet Baby


Just sharing another little baby card that I made a couple of weeks ago using the sitting giraffe digistamp from Squigglefly. Once again I used prismacolor pencils and gamsol. The sentiment was computer generated.

You can see the glossy accents a bit better in this photo on the bow.

Ink: Printer
Card: Regal Craft Card (white square single fold), White cardstock, purple Bazzill, purple embossed card (not sure which brand)
Other Supplies: Prismacolor pencils, gamsol, stubbs, Glossy accents (on bow), White Kaisercraft flowers, S.E.I. buttons, thin white ribbon, herma dotto, foam dimensionals, Kaisercraft pearls, Computer font “CAC Pinafore”.

Hope you are having a great day! Very wet here!

Until next time,

CASE Study #12

Hi there and thanks for stopping by.

I have made a card to go in the current CASE Study #12 challenge – I haven’t entered one for a while, but when I saw the inspiration card by Barbara, I had to give it a go as her clean and simple card really appealed to my style of card making.

My card is also very clean and simple. I cased Barbara’s layout and also her embossed background. I was going to ink over my embossed background as she had done, but when I saw the simplicity of the white, I kept it at that. Purple is not usually a colour I jump at the opportunity to work with – but I had some purple gingham ribbon that was beckoning me to use it – so hence the purple and white.

Card: Regal Craft Card (white horizontal single fold), White cardstock, purple cardstock
Other Supplies: Cuttlebug  embossing folder – Stylized Flowers, Cuttlebug, Purple gingham ribbon, Kaisercraft pearls, Kaisercraft ‘Friendship’ rub on from Lilac Avenue Range, Herma Dotto, WRMK Corner Chomper, Zots clear adhesive dots

Hope you like my take on the inspiration card.
