Rainbow glitter butterflys Happy Birthday cards

I got this lovely new rainbow glitter card and thought this would be great for Butterflys so I got my Butterfly dies out and this is my first card I die cut the Butterfly  just one layer and the Happy Birthday . I think it really pops on the black card.

Card two: This time I die cut the butterfly in glitter card and then I cut the next layer in black and over laid it I die cut the Happy Birthday in black and then took the left over glitter piece from My happy Birthday on my first card and placed them into this Happy Birthday and I think it has worked really well.

These cards are so much more prettier for real.

Too hot

Oh my this weather is to hot for me being a postie. I feel like I am melting and I need lots of bottles of pop to keep me hydrated. I wear my cap to keep the sun of my head and I am even wearing my shorts and I am a keep my legs in person lol.

I haven't done any crafting as I am so worn out by time I get home make tea I just want to chill out but I have ordered some nice new alcohol inks and some new dies to make boxes and it has extra dies so you can make boxes for different occasions.

It's my weekend off so I am hoping to have a play with all my new goodies and hopefully I can get pictures done and share what I have been making with you next week.

So until then take care stay safe and happy crafting

Playing with Brusho cards

Well some water colour card stock and some brusho's I love to watch the reaction between the water and the brusho you never know what your going to get. Once dried I stamped my Dylusion birds and I picked the Always take the scenic route sentiment and then mounted on to a red card A6 in size.

Cards Two:

More brusho's change of sentiment The world needs who you were made to be sentiment I stamped this onto a strip and adhered to the card to give a little dimension. I also used a cat this time.

Happy Birthday Cards and Make A Wish It's Your Birthday card.

I love Dandelions to make this card I took a base card 6 x 6 I then took so white card stock and stamped my Dandelions and my sentiment.

I used daubers to rub my colours on to my dandelions I added a gem to the middles as I find this just added a little pop.

For my middle I used my scan and cut I used BA-AO49 white is 3.75 and my pink piece is 3.94 so many lovely shapes will be using my scan and cut again.

Card two:

Just a changed of colour card and a change of sentiment and this time I decided to put some striped paper behind.

Card Three:

Slight change again not matting just a little bit of inking around the edges I really like how these's card came out.

Birthday Wishes Card

A quick Birthday card Base A6 card with a mat 5 1/2 x 3 7/8 this looked to plain for me just white so I stamped the flower pattern around the edge after I had stamped my greeting at the bottom.

I then took some stitched edge dies my Purple one measures 3 1/8 x 4 1/2 and my white one is 2 3/4 x 4 1/4.

I then stamped my Butterflies in a line. Using a light purple ink. I then placed these on to my card raised with foam pads to give a little dimension.

Happy Birthday Cards

I can share this card now as it has arrived in Holland for a dear friend of mine Jereon. I chat and craft online with his wife Freddie often and we chat online most evening.

We were crafting online last Tuesday when I asked what card could I make for Jeroen she said anything Bee's as they keep Bee's. So I set about making a card I already posted a Bee card I didn't think that was good enough so I started on this the 3rd card and we both agreed on this one and I am pleased to say he loves it.

I also made this card below card 2 which didn't cut the grade so it was 3rd time lucky.

All cards are 6 x 6 matted with a piece of craft card 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 and then a further mat 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 and then a strip in the middle  I didn't measure this I just stamped my two bee's and put the sentiment in the middle I used Black ink and coloured my yellow bits with an alcohol marker Before placing this onto the card I used the two left over bits of gingham paper from the first card I made just add a little extra dimension to the card.

Second card.
