Yellow and Blue Butterfy

Hello again,

Another Birthday, another card!
My friend loves the colour blue and I thought Pacific Point and Daffodil Yellow would be a nice contrast.
 A fairly simple card using some retired Painted Blooms DSP from the Occasions Catalogue.
Pacific Point and Daffodil Yellow Butterflies from the Butterfly Basics Thinlits.

I used the retired Dotted Scallop Border Punch in Pacific Point and a little bit of Bakers twine down the edge. 

The card was a square 14.5cm x 14.5cm card that I cut off the front (about 3.5cm). So you can see the inside greeting (non SU).

The pale blue paper on the inside is specialty computer paper I buy to use for my card inserts.

I wanted to also show you the card I made for my son's birthday. This is Iron Man. I found the picture on Pinterest and photocopied it. Then cut out the Iron Man. I recreated the scene using Black , White and Basic Grey Card stock. The Cityscape is a non-SU thinlit I own. I thought it turned out pretty cool.

And finally a couple of p…

Stepping out in Style

Hello Again,
The weather has been rather cold here so what better thing to do than hide in your craft room and make some cards!
This one is for my dear niece who turned 19.
I found the shoe template on Pinterest.

 Card base is Rich Razzleberry, black, white and Perfect Plum cut with the Hexagon Hive Thinlit.

 The shoe template is in three pieces. The Shoe (painted blooms dsp) the Heel (blackberry Bliss Cardstock) and the inside lining (Blackberry Bliss topped with the two way glue pen and dazzling diamonds glitter).
Also added a little handmade flower in Blushing Bride pink cardstock.

And now for an added bonus! My neighbour went into hospital for a shoulder reconstruction. Ouch! A big operation and big recovery time needed. So I wanted to whip up a quick card to send her my very best wishes and hoping for a speedy recovery. Here is my card. I didn't have long to make it, so just used things I found on my desk.  I was pleased with it, though now I am looking at it I am thinking a …

Happy 50th! All Dressed Up.

My friend turned 50 last week and for her Milestone Birthday I wanted to make a very special card just for her.
She had a 60's theme party on the weekend and wore a black mini dress and tiara. So I pulled out the retired Dress Up Thinlits.
How is this for a card!!!

So much happening on this card. I will try and take you through it bit by bit. Little butterflies are from the retired Beautiful wings embosslits. (going to miss those)
 The tiara is a little piece of a larger border punched piece, I found in my stash. Coloured with silver glitter.
I added Silver Glimmer card to the top and bottom of the dress and for the number 50.

 The  wavy design in the background was created by making a freehand wavy template then tracing it onto the coloured cardstock and cutting out and sticking together. Loved how that turned out.

Cardstock used: Watermelon Wonder Base, Black and Soft Sky.
Wavy piece: Crisp Cantaloupe, Watermelon Wonder and Coastal Cabana, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Card.

Some more In Colours on Show

Just very quick posts at the moment as we have a lot happening at home with a family wedding in a couple of weeks time.

I am enjoying the new In Colours. I didn't think I liked Watermelon Wonder until I started using it. Now I think it will be a favourite. haha.

I used the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and some Black and White retiring designer paper. I didn't have enough of the new Watermelon Wonder Cardstock for the base card so I used Tangerine Tango cardstock for that.

The ink colours are Watercolour Wonder, Cucumber Crush and Mint Macaron.

The measurements and cutting for the designer paper can be found here. in a previous post.

Birthday Greetings are from the Wetlands Stamp Set.
The little flowers are from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. The tiny black flowers on top are from a retired punch set. Leaf in Cucumber Crush is from the Bird Builder Punch.

Loved making this card. It is a great way to use and showcase your designer paper.
Thanks for stopping by. Vx
