A little note

 For today I concentrated in making a card for Addicted to CAS code word being GRID.

I used cream card

Grid stamp from Shabby Textures , Creative expressions

Main die I have no idea of origin∟ i cut the frame twice and layered over the middle panel - can't really see it as it gets lost in the pattern , Reasoning to layer the frame was so it could look like a shelf for the vase to sit on.

The vase and the flowers are all made by Gummiapan - a Swedish company

This will be entered into other challenges as listed below

Summertime 7

 I saw the new challenge over at AAA Cards and thought I would give it a go with this card.  The challenge is a sketch with flowers. 

Cream and neutral card

Flower stencil by Sweet Poppy Stamps - Oxide inks gathered twigs, victorian velvet

Bee Gummiapan stamped in gathered twigs as is the sentiment (stamp origin unknown)

bee coloured with polychromo pencil and cream dots made by double sided tape on back of cream card and used a die with tiny holes.  Lifted the off the card with their sticky back and stuck them behind the bee.  This also fits in with the challenge over AAA Birthday challenge of Birthday Flowers

In flight.....2

 Yes another butterfly, just cannot resist them lol

I did not know how I was going to use this die but then
Cut the die twice across each other
Backed half with lilac and other pale green
Die cut the butterfly in each of the colours, dissected in half and placed them over their opposite colours. Found a butterfly body from my memory box butterfly.
Both dies I have no idea as to their origins
Did not put sentiment on as of yet if at all - may just use it for any occasion

Dotty flutterby 5

 I used a dotty corner stamp stamped twice using tattered rose oxide ink pad to create the rectangle, in opposite directions of course. Stamp by Creative expressions, Shabby Textures.

Butterfly die cannot remember origin (so many butterflies in my stash) I die cut it out of a scrap digital image I did not like however it has not gone to waste.
Sentiment origin unknown

Lilys and flutterby 2

 Today's effort has taken me ages to get a decent picture and threw in the towel with the words what the heck - dark and light background, lightbox no light box you name it I tried it,,,, probably my eyes have a murky film over them lol.

Anyhow I used
300gsm smooth cardstock by Craftuk
I used my favourite lily image from pngwing and intergrated 2 butterflies also from the same site
Printed it out twice as intentions were to cut an aperture however it did not end that way. I die cut one image with a memory box butterfly and matched it up over the top. It may look a little off but believe me it is lined up perfectly when butterfly lies flat.
Out of the remainder where I had die cut I used my fave butterfly punch and cut it twice out of the lily. Placed it at end of sentiment of which was composed in word Font Donuts and cookies

They are charming gardners.............

 The background for this one I used Nuvo Shimmer powder through a Tim Holtz stencil. .

I then cut out my butterflies (dies unknown brand) and backed it with pink to be seen under the wings. I cut it up diagonally and placed on card. I placed pearls for the bodies. The sentiment is a stamp and it was by Graphicos and had it for years. I don't think it is made anymore but easily can be generated on computer and printed. I mounted the front onto base card using double sided tape. The second pic shows the butterflies at an angle.

Thank you for stopping to take a peek

Christmas with Ivy.......1

Again I was at a loss as to what to do next. I seem to have brain fog at the moment. I started to go through some of my bits and pieces for later box and found a piece of card where I was playing with my glimmer machine ages ago using a normal ivy die (Creative expressions trailing ivy) in silver to see how it came out, I didn't want to throw it out so used it for a background for my tree dies which I think may be unbranded - had them ages. I die cut a frame (unbranded) for the outside and mounted the card front onto the main card using double sided foam tape. Second pic close up so can see the fine silver outline and the vein in the leaves from the die. Sentiment computer generated

Thank you for popping in to see my latest card

For this card I used an Eggpng digital poppy and gold specks from purple frost by Hungryjpeg merged together using photoscapex. after alterations have been made I upload to word and print from there.

I printed image 3 times, twice on 300gsm card and once on delicate flower patterned vellum as an overlay beneath the cut outs and on top of the bottom image.
I used 2 different sizes of rectangular dies for the front layer.
After lining up all three images I adhered the bottom 2 together. I then fixed the front panel to the bottom making sure they all lined up using double sided foam tape. With a remnant of the cut out poppy  I punched out a butterfly for the front - I don't like to waste anything.

I inserted the words under the image in word using a text box as I always do.

Thank you .......

 I used my Nellie snellen robin embossing folder and inked it up using Distress Oxide Ink pads pumice stone, hickory smoke and a little black. I embossed 4 pieces of card, one for the background and the other 3 for the letters so I could match them up over top. I uses Rose Quartz Inka Gold as I don't have gilding wax (however that is on my ever ending list of things I MUST have lol ) The letters are by Alexandra Renke and stacked twice. I used pink card for the backing. The sentiment was written on laptop and printed.

Cut the tree out from white card to show the gold after putting the die cut back into the negative space.

The sentiment I cannot for the life of me remember it's origin
