Attic Boutique Blossom Butterly

I love how versatile punch's can be, the Blossom punch is cut to resemble & a Butterfly on this card by cutting away 2 petals, a more realistic shaped butterfly can also be achieved by cutting 2 petals but from opposite ends of the Blossom. The quote is from "Butterfly Prints" stamp set & it nestles perfectly in the Oval punch which also perfectly mounts onto the 2nd smallest Framelits labels (I've also dry embossed this piece with the oval Designer Frame embossing Folder).

Stampin Up! Fabric

How adorable are these tissue pillow covers & what a lovely little gift it makes paired with a matching card. This card has paper Blossom Punch flowers punched from the co-ordinating Beau Chateau DSP, a little different from these that are fabric.

I died some Victoria Crochet trim using Marina mist re-inker on this one -just add 6 ish drops to some water in a plastic zip lock bag (enough to immerse), squish it a few times then squeeze excess from lace before removing from bag with tweezers & hang to dry.
I found a free tutorial so easy to follow for the tissue holders over at Barb Stamps.

The headband uses the gorgeous Twitterpated Fabric & has a suffolk fabric flower, gathered Pleated Ribbon & Twitterpated button attached. I learnt how to cover headbands & make the suffolk puffs with Di. Not bad for my second one, thanks Di.

Pedal Presents

I have had "Pedal Presents" stamp set sitting on my desk from some time now waiting to get inked, finally today was the day. I coloured the bike in white with a gel pen, the congrats is also from a hostess set "Tagtastic". I stamped the balloon image again on a stamped piece/DSP & cut those out to paper piece onto the balloons stamped straight on the cardfront. I inked all black images with Stazon.

Balloons are Patio Party DSP coming soon, along with the happy birthday banner from "Itty Bitty Banners" stamp set & the little butterfly's stamped inside the card is from Make & Cake" stamp set, I received these today (incentive gift from SU!) & had to have a little play, the DSP features a few of the new 2012 -2014 in colours, Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit & Midnight Muse, nice!

Happy Mothers Day

A little late in posting, but to cute not to. Inspired by an envelope I saw in I think a past US mini or impressions. Unusual but delightful colour combo of Rich Razzleberry, Peach Parfait, Pool Party & Pear Pizzaz. Lots of supplies used in this card, it was fun to create & I really liked the result & Mum did too.

Apothecary Art

 Colour combo inspred by the colours in Twitterpated DSP. I love this fold & it fits the Framelits perfectly.

 The Edgelits & matching Folders are used on the next 2 & I edged an envelope to co-ordinate.
