Dandelions and Butterflies

Two of my favourite types of stamps - Dandelions and butterflies, - so an ideal opportunity to use both.  I learnt a technique at a Lovin' Ink class last year, about using Distress Pads direct to a clear block, sprites with water and then apply to watercolour paper, it was fun, easy and very effective.  I then stamped a Dandelion Stamp and Butterfly - and voila card complete!  I will certainly be doing more of this type of card.

I might layer the butterfly to make it pop more.....!


Oooh what fun I have had trying to upload some pictures, for some reason blogspot would not allow me to browse my files to upload on Tuesday.....  but today its all up and running.

This is not an original idea, I saw it on YouTube, but can't remember the name of the site, so apologies.... I firstly ran cardstock through the cuttlebug with my hexagon dies, and then again with some scraps of card.  It was the long task of cutting out the hexagons and placing them randomly on the white card stock.

This is not completed yet, - as I have not matt and layered it, nor added a sentiment.  I really enjoying doing this, and can thing of lots of colour combinations to use... - watch this space.

Stampin' Up

This is a new Stampin' Up flower stamp that a friend and I recently purchased.  Have used the new Tim Holtz distress inks (Summer) love these colours.....


Am really into sunflowers at the moment..... - have used a technique I saw on YouTube, and love it....

Think that the black and white sunflower stamped images in the background are fab...... - think that this will be a well used stamp.

Am struggling a little with sentiments at the mo, and have made a few cards without putting the sentiment on, as not sure who or what occasion it will be used for.

Another month passes

Another month has passed by without me uploading a post of some of the cards I have made..... But here comes a few recent creations.

Am enjoying 'playing' with my inks at the mo, and have no idea how it is all going to turn out..... did this fab blue and green background, and used various flower type stamps, and of course had to sneek in a a small butterfly.

Yesterday went along to the Lovin'Ink Class with Janet & Michelle, and had a fab time trying out bleaching....

Have a look at the effect.... the thing with bleaching is you never know how it is going to go in so much different coloured paper, thickness, quality all have varying effects.

I matt and layered this into a simple card this morning.
