Little Butterfly Girl

This image – Little Butterfly Girl, from All Dressed Up – caught my eye as soon as I saw it for the first time.  I coloured it with Promarkers, cut around three sides with a square stitched die and cut the fourth side with an envelope edger die.  The wings and petticoat are glittered with Stickles Star Dust.   I used a blue and pink patterned paper and a plain blue paper – distressed at the edges.  The butterfly spray is die cut, the tiny butterflies are from the same die and the flowers are from my stash.

Winnie Windswept

I made this birthday card for my oldest friend – who is also the person who encouraged me to start making cards several years ago.  She’s received it now, so I’m able to post it on my blog.  I’ve had the image – Winnie Windswept – from Polkadoodles, for quite some time but this is the first time I’ve used it.  I coloured Winnie with Promarkers and cut around her with a stitched circle die.  The pink chicken wire, the leaves and the sentiment banners are die cut and the flowers were from the Ribbon Girl.

As You Like It Challenge – Favourite Flowers or Ribbon and Why ( I prefer to add flowers as they give more depth and can be  positioned in various ways – ribbon is usually just a straight line.  I use a selection of flowers and also several flower dies so can tone or match the flowers to the theme colour.)         https://asyoulikeitchallenge.blogspot.com/2019/04/favourite-flowers-or-ribbon-and-why.html

 

Buzzy Bear Gift Bag

We have a new challenge starting today at Di’s Digi Designs and the theme is Anything but a Card.  I used a kraft gift bag – which I made smaller in height – and decorated it using one of Di’s new stamps – Buzzy Bear, available here.  Isn’t he adorable..!!

I coloured the image with Promarkers and cut around it with a stitched square die.  The die cut butterfly was coloured with DI and glittered.  The ribbon is from my stash.

We hope you will join in this challenge at Di’s Digi Designs where you could win some of Di’s images.  You can make anything you would like to – as long as it isn’t a card…!!

Pretty Blooms

I have made a birthday card using Pretty Blooms from All Dressed Up.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and added Stickles Star Dust to the little girl’s petticoat and Liquid Pearls to the spots on her boots.  The sentiment is die cut and placed on 2 die cut banners and the ribbon and lace are from my stash.  The flowers are die cut with dots of pink Liquid Pearls in their centres.

Daffodil Fun

Happy Easter to everyone – I hope you all have a lovely sunny weekend.

The new challenge starting today at Di’s Digi Designs is Spring Flowers.  I made an Easter card for a very old friend using Daffodil Fun – available here.

These two little mice with their daffodil hats are so adorable – I coloured this cute image with Promarkers and cut around it with a stitched circle die.  The stitched hexagonal shapes are die cut from a selection of patterned papers and the sentiment is computer generated.  The flowers are die cut and the gems are from my stash.

We hope you will join in this challenge at Di’s Digi Designs where you could win some of Di’s adorable images.
