Butterfly basics stampin Up stamp set


IMG_8565 (Medium)In the spirit of sharing everything¬† I have posted this one – although even I will admit it is a bit too busy! if I repeated this one the big die cut butterfly ( spellbinders die) would be die cut from plain cardstock instead of patterned paper.I stamped greenery all over the card except in the middle where I stamped the sentiment, and stamped and punched out the little butterflies in a variety of coloured inks. sequins and beads on the big butterfly,this one is a keeper not a seller!I will decorate a frame and hang it in my craft room because I love the deep and meaningful sentiment. til tomorrow…

IMG_8562 (Medium)IMG_8564 (Medium)For a bit of a change, today i am posting a couple of stamped cards, using some recent purchases from Stampin Up. Top card…Stampin Up background papers, and a great new stamp set called Butterfly Basics – lots of different stamps in this set , some great for background work, which I stamped in yellow,stamped the butterfly in pink and punched it out with a matching butterfly punch ( which I have had for a while)and coloured the flower with prismacolour pencils.Bit of lace, ribbon and bling finished that one. The second card… I used¬† a big background stamp from stampin up called Something lacy,stamped some green fronds from Butterfly Basics, and again coloured the flower with prismacolour pencils.stamped and fussy cut the butterfly, added some buttons to the top corner,lace and a border punched with my Martha stewart lace border punch.Must find some time to play a bit more with this set – its so versatile! no crafting so far today, but I will spend an hour or two in the craft room tonight after tea just to wind down after a really busy week! til tomorrow….

IMG_0855 (Medium)two quick cards today made with graphic 45 Time to flourish april sheets. On the left, a lot of fussy cutting ( this is more than likely going to be Mums Mothers day card as she loves daffodils) and on the right a very quick and easy easter card., with a little nit of fussy cutting stuck around the image for a bit of interest!we are having power cuts on and off today, luckily we have been warned, but every time the power comes back on there is a mad rush to the computer! it’s amazing how reliant we have become on technology! Til tomorrow….

IMG_0857 (Medium)A very quick Easter card today, using Graphic 45 Time to Flourish April papers.This card didn’t need much extra at all – just a seam binding bow with a tiny flower, and the background layer punched with my Martha stewart Doily punch.A day of doctors today, Joe has his check up with the specialist after his knee operations, and then dad of to the local hospital for a cardiologist appt. Hopefully both get a clean bill of health. Til tomorow….

I used a card front for this one, and did some fussy cutting, and just added a seam binding bow.In the craft room meanwhile I still have simple stories on the table ,left there from the weekend, and I am determined to finish all the bits and pieces I have left – so far I have made 25 cards with that paper ( not counting the 10 I have made for a class in may) .. I am inspired with that paper! til tomorrow….
