Flowers & Butterflies....

Once again I apologise for the long absence!! Things are all good just very busy at the moment :)
Today I am sharing a recent sample I made for a craft demo.
I have quite a few samples to share now so I will get round to posting more often!!
This card features a pretty floral paper which I have 3-d using flowers from the same sheet to add some dimension. I have also heat embossed the beautiful doily stamp from Docrafts onto the right hand side with pink glittery embossing powder.
I have stamped the sentiment and added more flowers onto a circle cut with my nesties from the same sheet of paper. The butterflies are from a Hero Arts/Sizzix set.
I am entering my card into the following challenges ~

Love these papers........gorgeous colours and very pretty floral design! The flowers were cut with some Docrafts X-Cut dies and finished with a button and thread. The banners are Sizzix dies that come in a set with co-ordinating stamps.
The mini pizza box is made from 1 sheet of a4 card and it's the perfect size for a wee's about 4" square.

Doily and Die....

Hi.........I'm back with a couple of cards I have made using the gorgeous Doily stamp and die from Docrafts.
For the above card I stamped and embossed the doily stamp and then cut it out with the matching die. Quite tricky to line up but worth the effort :) The 'mum' and the scalloped border in pink are also stamps from Docrafts - the vintage range. Finished with some bakers twine and button and a wee tag!

This card uses the doily stamp stamped and embossed straight onto the patterned paper. I used a Silver Pearl embossing powder for a watermark look. It's a very subtle look but very pretty!
I cut the card into a tag shape and added the butterfly from a 'Framelits' set.
Finished with the die-cut 'Mum' (a Docrafts alphabet die) and the sentiment stamped in pink is from Hero Arts.
I am entering my cards into the following challenges -
Allsorts Challenge #196 - For a #2 entry
PaperTakeWeekly - Anything Goes with opt. Mothers Day card or card for special female.
Totally Gorjuss #173 - Anything Goes with Pink.......I am entering the top card :)

Penny Black Saturday January Challenge......

Morning!! and a Happy New Year to you all :)
We have a new challenge over at Penny Black Saturday......
'January Blues'.....
so any theme etc. just stick to the colour blue!

I have used this gorgeous floral stamp from PB and simply stamped it in Tumbled Glass distress ink, stamping an extra one to layer up the large flower. I have inked the edges and stamped the sentiment in the same ink too. 
I did no colouring as I think the flowers look nice and fresh as they are :)
A nice fresh start to 2013!!

There are 3 fabulous prizes to be won this month........check out the blog for all the details and to see all the gorgeous 'blue' DT projects!
