Happy Easter Sunday Everyone…

I have two cards to share with you today, one that I made last night and one that I made this morning..

First up we have the Easter Butterfly..

This card comprises of a few mats and layers, some distress inking and some water colour splodges..

Next up is the card I made this morning, and it features the wee dug* (*scottish for dog) ;-) that I used last week

Many thanks dacshund

This card features a water coloured background in stripes with Distress inks in Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers.. love how this turned out!  Might have to make some more backgrounds in different colourways!

That’s all for now… I should be back later with Shabby Sunday #13 .. which will be the last in the current series, it is time for a change, and change is good :-)

As always, thanks for stopping by..

Life is good

The Sun is shining, the skies and blue, the birds are singing and …. Life is Good!

life is good

there is also a wee youtube time lapse video for this card, I am finding it easier to upload video’s these days, since we had new F/Optic Broadband installed, normally it would take me 4 hours to upload a 15 min video… now it takes minutes :)

so the supplies list for this card are :-

  • Crumb Cake Cardstock from Stampin Up
  • Reddy pink textured cardstock from Bazzill
  • Peachy pink & duck egg blue textured cardstock from DCWV
  • MyMinds Eye 12 x 12 Glittered Patterned Paper “in Bloom”
  • Clearly Besotted Scallop Edge Dies
  • Studio Calico Wood Piece “Life is good”
  • Stampin Up Linen Thread and Stampin Dimensionals
  • Scor-tape
  • Papermania Tea Party Paper Blooms
  • Small piece of Muslin Fabric

for the envelope, I used the same patterned paper (leftovers) from the card and also a Spellbinders Scallop Edge Rectangle Die, a couple more of the paper blooms, muslin fabric and a wee pearl.

  • Pink Iridescent Sequins
  • Zig 2 way glue Pen

case 187 1

I dropped spots of ink over the Dacshund with the Dylusions sprays then sprayed once with water and dried with a heat gun, it gave the  diecut a tie dyed feel,so when the card is closed, you can see it through the vellum..
