Clean and Simple

Well I decided to use up some of my bits.
I embossed the bottom of a card
tied ribbon over the edge,
added gems, flowers and a sentiment and voila !

I don't usually do clean and simple
but  I seem to be in the mood for them at present !
Well till the next post !!!

Happy crafting everyone !

Flutterby fly from flower to flower ......
Or just onto my card !!! lol !
I have had this Marianne Butterfly die for ages.
I cut it out several times but just couldn't get it right on a card.
So ............
I racked my brains (what little I have !!!)
and came up with this.

I cut the butterfly in white card, coloured using my promarkers
then glittered using stickles glitter glue.
Added some gems and bling it looked fab !
I cut the shaped card using Go-Kreate dies,
inked with distress inks and added gems\along with a sentiment !

I was after something plain and simple
but something that still said "Hello look at me !"
lol !!!
Hope you like it !!
Have a great day.

New Home

Oh boy have I had fun !!!
I should warn you keep scrolling down there are lots of photos !
My God-daughters and their family have just moved house.
Well they are renovating a house so are in a caravan at the moment !
So ..... I thought this weeks Polka Doodles challenge New Home was fitting for them
when they finally move out of the garden and into the house !!
I made a Box and a card !

First the card ..... 
I used the Stampies from the CD All Around and Everywhere.
Both the houses and tree Stampies.
To make them large enough to make a card with I enlarged 
the view on them and used the printing option of current view.

I used double sided foam to give dimension, 
I also cut out doors and window boxes to help the dimension.
Of course I had to glitter it up using my Stickles !
The doors, roofs, window boxes and bits of the trees all got glittered !
The fence is a Marianne die.
I basically layered all of these onto a rectangle card!

Secondly I made a box ! 

Again I used the CD All around and Everywhere for the images.
The paper I used from the CD Picknix 1.
I just love how the words look like clouds !

Again I used foam to layer up the images, the Marianne die for the fence,
a Martha Stewart Punch for the edge of the lid.
The tag and leaves on top were both made using  Marianne dies. 
Flowers are Prima with gems added !!

 When I showed these to my other half he just went "WOW"
Even though I say it myself I love these !!!
Hope you do too !

Anyway come and join in our Challenge at Polka Doodles !
Happy Crafting

The sentiment is a PSX stamp.
Ooh how I love my PSX stamps, I will never prt with them!
How I wish they still made them......
