Oh Butterfly Oh Butterfly



 
 
Good morning all I hope you are all well and
if not I send you some big hugs.
What are you all up to today.
I'm planning to finish cleaning my craft room.
I did half of it yesterday and what a day that was
I never realised just how many dies I have.
I'm hoping that any one could help
me with ideas on how to file my dies.
I will add some photos at the end of this blog.
My Husband came up with putting them on the wall
so I could see them.
But I ran out of wall lol.
 
As you will see them on the wall and in some
folders on the top of my unit they are the ones
I need to file them better.
 
That's all for today and should you
leave me any comments them I thank you so
much. And if you have a active blog I would
love to return the favour.
 
Many thanks

Any ideas would be welcome xx

Gemini Perseus





 
 
Good morning All I hope you are all well
And thank you for stopping by It just makes
Worth while doing my blog to know that you
stop by.
It looks as though it could be a lovely day but
saying that yesterday it was lovely and sunny
and we had a few flakes of snow.
I just couldn't believe my eyes when it started.
And then is all had gone with a blink of the eye.
 
Today's card I took from Sue Wilson's card she
posted yesterday as I were having blank on the idea
side but it did turn out not too bad.
 
I started by cutting all the die cuts. I cut the
Finishing touches Charming heart corners
out of white card and
then the Frame Tags Refined rectangles frame
for my sentiment to go on. out of white card.
 
Next I cut a mat out of lilac card to fit the front
of my card.
Then I arranged the Gemini Perseus die about
1inc from the bottom I cut this out. Then I did it again
on the other half.
 
Next I glittered the piece of my base card where
the two pieces of card meet.
Next I cut my corners and I added these to the
two top corners.
I then added my sentiment frame to the top
centre.
To finish off I tied a large white bow out of
organza ribbon which I added to the side of my
borders.
I then made two hat pins in lilac and white pearls.
to go into my bow.
And to finish off with I added a gem butterfly
to my bow.
 
That's all for today I'm off to pay primark
a visit to get some more cheep jewellery to 
cut up for my card embellishments.
 
Should you leave me any comments I thank you
so much and if you have a active blog I
would love to return the favour.
 
Many Thanks

Butterfly dreams




 
Good morning to you all on this Tuesday morning
I hope you are all well and enjoying the lovely
weather we are having.
For todays card I made it a few days ago and
I forgot to post it. And I must say that it is
one of my favourite cards I've made as the
colour is a lovely dreamy mint colour.
I got it from Amazon and it was the cheapest
card ive ever bought. it was only £2.75 for
50 sheets and its 220gsm.
And I ordered some more colours that's my bargain
of the month.
 
The dies I've used at Dies by Sue Wilson and spellbinders.
 
First I cut the top background by using
Caribbean island collection in white and then
I cut a mat out of mint card.
Nest I cut the topper with the Caribbean island
collection St Kitts die I cut this out of white
and a mat out of mint.
I added this to the center of background on which I
added this to the top centre of my card,
 
Then I cut the spellbinders Anne border strip
and I cut it out of white and a mat of mint.
I then cut a mat out of mint satin board.
I left about a 1inch gap below my background.
so I could add my border stip.
 
Then I left another  gap so I could punch
the bottom of my card front.
 
Next I cut a butterfly out of white and mint
which I added to the centre piece.
 
To finish off with I tied a bow out of mint and
white organza ribbon which I added to
the side of my card. and made two hatpins
to go in the bow and I added a gem butterfly
to the centre of my bow I got these gem from
primark it was a bracelet that cost a whopping
£2 and I cut it up and made 12 butterfly's.
 
That's all for now and I will see you tomorrow
should you leave any comments I do appreciate
them and if you have a active blog I would
love to return the favour.
 
Many Thanks

Friends



 
 
Morning all hope you are all well on this Sunday
Morning.
Well it looks like the sun as gone home
as it's not here and I think it's cold but it
is only 3.30 am and I've got the heating on.
What are you all up to today I hope something nice.
 
I'm going to the Crematorium this morning this
some flower's for my mum.
And then I'm hoping to get in my craft room
as I've got lots of DT work to get finish as
I fell behind with me not having my laptop but
now my printer as gone funny but I have had
it years so it's telling me to get a new one.
But there's no funds for a printer just yet so
I had to ask my sister to print me some things off.
 
Todays card I did a few weeks ago but I forgot
to post it.
I'm sorry I've forgot the names of these dies and I
don't want to wake all the house lol.
 
But its a 8"-8" white card  which I cut a lemon
mat and I used the trellis die to cut the background.
 
I then stamped the sentiment onto white
card and while it was still in the die I
inked the edges with a lemon inkpad.
I then cut the larger die in the set to mount my
sentiment on.
I then added it to the left side of my card.
 
I then added some paper flowers to the side of my topper.
I added so pearl embellishment to the flower's.
And to finish off with I tied a bow out
of lemon seam binding and I added it
just under the flower's.
 
That's all for today and if you should leave me
any comments then I thank you so much
and if you have a active blog
 I would love to return the favour but if you
don't have a blog
I thank you so much for taking the time to
stop by.
 
Many Thanks

The finished card is a 8"- 9"

Teal Aster's





 
 
Good morning all hope you are all well
on this Friday morning and it looks as though
it's going to be another lovely day.
 
Jennifer did you manage to sit in the sun
yesterday and you didn't get burnt I hope.
 
Well im off to be pampered this morning as
my hubby is treating me to having my nails done.
And then it's off to Asda before it gets too hot.
 
Todays card I simply love it and I like how
it turned out cos I had a little accident with
the centre die that's how the flowers come to
be arranged like they are. But they cover up
the tier in it.
 
I love to use Sue Wilsons die as they always come
out looking good.
And you will be sick of seeing these Aster's
as I just love them at the minute.
 
That's all for today and if
you are going out in the sun take care and
don't get burnt.

you so much and if you have a active blog then
I  would love to return the favour.

Glittered Aster






 
Good morning all im hoping you are all well
on this Monday morning I don't know about you
but I think the weekend went really fast.
I hope today is going to be a little warmer
then yesterday.
 
I'm sorry about the photo's not being good as
I tried everything to get a clear photo.
 
I started by cutting my stepper card out by
using the stepper die.
You can get this die from.
It makes it so much easier than having
to measure and cut it out by hand.
 
I then cut the Marianne square die which i
added it to the centre piece of my card.
Next I cut out my Spellbinder's Aster die twice
so that my flower looked full.
I then made my flower up then I glittered it.
 
I then added it to the centre of my card.
I then wrapper a piece of pink organza ribbon
around the bottom of my card.
Then I tied and bow and added this to my card.
 
To finish off with I added some gems to just
below my flower.
 
That's all for today and should you leave
me any comments I thank you so much and
if you have a active blog I would love to
return the favour and visit you.
But if you don't have a blog then I thank you so much
for taking the time to stop by and comment.
 
Many Thanks
