I have been wanting to get this Tim Holtz Stamp Papillion for ages and finally I have it.
Nice A5 size card in black then a core dination card in brown and sanded to give a distressed effect I then took a biscuit colour card and stamped my background with Antique Linen oxide and Black soot Oxide for the Butterfly's and Moths. I am really pleased how this turned out.
Small A6 card this time and a manilla tag stamped background in Antique Linen again and black soot oxide for the Butterfly's and Moths I placed the tag at an angle I think it looked better this way rather than straight.

Oh a bit early I here you say but I came across this stamp and die set by Tim Holtz and just had to have it.
A6 base card in black and a white mat then I took a piece of black card and embossed with my spider web folder then I rubbed Seedless preserves oxide over it so I got a purple effect on my web. I then stamped my spider web and sentiment in black and then heat embossed it's very glossy in the flesh the picture doesn't show this.
For this card I have used core dination card in grey and sanded the web I love the effect it has given the web. Once again my web with spider is black and glossy.

After using these dies yesterday I thought I would use them again only this time I have used the lovely non shed rainbow card.
I have also made this one bigger this is a 6 x 6 black card matted with a lovely pearlescent mat and then die cuts are done in Rainbow card I placed my rainbow card on adhesive sheets so they could be peeled and placed straight onto the card no sticky glue.

A very quick and simple card all you need is a base card A6 black base card and then a piece of rainbow card and a die of a butterfly I also used double sided adhesive sheet on the rainbow card so once die cut all I had to do was peel the backing of and place onto the card.
I have left it sentiment free but you could add any little sentiment to this.

Not craft related today but a proud moment.
My beautiful Orchid flower it's just so beautiful I felt I should share it.
I have had Orchid plants before and thought once the flowers had died and fell off that was it and I threw it away. Oh no I hear you say I didn't know if you just left them they would flower again.
Well this time I left it and then a little bud appeared and got bigger and bigger and then here we are a beautiful flower and my favourite colour Pink. There are more bud so fingers x I get some more beautiful flowers.

I saw this technique and thought I need to have a go and It was a good time to use my make up brushes to do the blending. I have a base A6 black card with a white mat slightly smaller.
I took my white piece of card blended my Squeezed Lemonade in the middle then Twisted Citron on the left and Spiced Marmalade on the right all these are Tim Holtz Oxide ink pads. once done I placed a stencil over the top and blended the ink over the top this gives the pattern of the Criss cross. I then die cut the Happy Birthday and adhered this with glue.

So so cute I just had to buy this stamp and die set this is my first card and I have just stamped my image and coloured with my tri blend pens.
My second card I have changed the colours I used for my base card and I also changed my colours when colouring with my tri blends . I also used the dies I decided to die cut the whole image out but the die set allows you to cut just one side off and have the image in the edge of the card be it Left Right or Middle or fully like I have done. I also place a sentiment on this card Have A Mice Day.

This was a basic brown hard back note book and I decided to have a go at changing it to a mixed media note book.
I embossed some card and die cut some keys and locks then painted it all black and then rubbed some silver gilding wax over it.
I must say I am pleased how this has turned out and when showing my husband Gary he said I'll have this for my birthday as he really loves it.
Think I will try something else in mixed media.

This is a new die I brought one sheet of A4 card put though a A4 die cutter and then a simple fold on the score line I didn't even need to use a bone folder and you only need too glue in 2 places great little box. I also brought the numbers and unlike other sets you get 2 number 1 and 2 great.
