Anniversary Butterflies

 I was inspired by a card on instagram so I decided these MFT butterflies stamp and dies would work for the white embossing on vellum and cutting pretty pastel card to place behind the vellum. 

The base of the card was using Sunny Studio background die and the Hero Arts Daisy stencil. I embossed with the stencil, I did think about giving the flower centres a touch of colour but glad I didn’t it would look too much.

Since I needed a couple of Anniversary cards I found some anniversary stamps and embossed on matching card in white.

I spent yesterday working out how to use the Spellbinders Glimmer hot foil system, I did watch a couple of you tube videos but I’m so pleased with the results. I’ve ordered some sentiment dies so I can spend some time making sentiment strips.

Lilac Flowers


I’ll be honest I’m not keen on the tiny cute critters that Lawn Fawn sell but occasionally one the dies take my fancy. I love this frame but found it tricky to fin a sentiment to fit in the centre. Finally deciding on the Simon Says Stamp birthday sentiment die. 

I di find the large Lawn Fawn birthday die at Sandown so I will have to use the frame again and I especially love the flowers which you can use separately.

Having some time at home what with busy few weeks to catch up on ourselves so I’ve been catching up with birthday cards I have to make just wish there weren’t so many men in my family.

Pussy Willow

 Phew I had a few busy weekends some took longer than others to recover but all should settle down now. I finished off with a craft show at Sandown I was a bit anxious to begin with but it didn’t stop me buying stuff. 

Card making is still slow but each month I make a few birthday and anniversary ones only I can’t show till they receive them.

The card I’m posting is using the Greetery Pussy Willow die and I saw a fabulous card from Lin on instagram that I sort of copied didn’t use the exact same dies except the pussy willow. The frame is Altenew, sentiment is Creative Expression and the bow is Avery Elle.

After I made the card I found some flocked card that I could of used for the buds, I probably forget next time.
