Get Well Soon

I needed to make a 'get well soon' card at short notice.
Image is by Lili Of The Valley and sentiment is by Woodware

I've used distress inks, a Spellbinders' die, and a couple of SU punches.

This was for my friend's recent 40th birthday.
She is hedgehog mad so I splashed out on some charms (eBay) and a greatly-reduced Docrafts die.

I think the card would have been better without the die-cut on but it was so fiddly to put together that I couldn't bear to leave it off.

The sentiment is a Tonic die and I stamped white-on-white and heat embossed using Banana Frog stamps for the 40s

Golden Wedding

This was my first attempt at a 'card-in-a-box'
I found making the basic box very straight-forward (followed the instructions on Monica's blog ) but when it came to actually decorating it I sat staring into space for about two hours!

I should have used more acetate and not joined all the hearts up but I'll know next time :)

I made this for the butterfly challenge on CM&P
The card was difficult to photograph, it's a 6 x 6 dark purple card-blank but I chopped three inches off the right hand side.

The butterfly and French text stamps are Tim Holtz 'Papillon'
The birthday sentiment stamp is by Hobby Art

Butterfly challenge on CM&P
Sentiment is a Tonic die
Butterfly stamps are Penny Black, I used distress inks to make the background before stamping , then added a bit of glitter.
Card blank is 8 x 8 so it's a biggie.

These are the butterflies that should have gone on the previous card, I cut several from a sheet of SEI patterned paper.
Sentiment is by Technique Tuesday

Best Wishes

Originally I was going to make a card featuring butterflies, for a challenge.
Somehow the card evolved into not featuring any butterflies at all, it either looked too plain or too cluttered.

Sentiment is by Hero Arts
Seam binding, C/S, and embossing powder are all Stampin Up

Stamps are all Waltzingmouse
Papers were magazine freebie

Another card for the silhouette challenge on CM&P

I've had the die-cut ages so no idea where it came from originally, sentiment stamp is 'Madame Chic' by Butterfly Kisses.

Fairy Dreams

Background coloured with distress inks
Fairy text stamp is very old PSX (these used to go for silly money on ebay, £30+)
Sentiment stamp is Clearly Besotted
I've entered this in the Silhouette challenge on CM&P.
