Madame Payraud Butterfly Card and Gemstone Bracelet

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with some of my recent projects for you to look at. I'm starting with a Butterfly card I made using Serif software for my image and sentiment, Madame Payraud papers and embellishments, Papermania paper from my stash which matched this and dark brown cardstock. I used the image of the butterfly on the Madame Payraud paper as an embellishment then added my sentiment and 3D butterfly either side of this.

Secondly is a bracelet I have made myself using gemstones. For this bracelet I used Honey Quartz, Citrine, Tigers Eye and Sunstone. I only have little wrists so making my own jewellery means I can get things to really fit me and not slide up and down my wrist! :-)

Vintage Typewriter Thank you very much for... card

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a thank you card I made for my crafty ribbons team mate Laura who was very kind and sent me a card when I was having a hard time :-) I used an image of a vintage typewriter and a message which I shaped and placed on 3D foam to give proper dimension from the paper. I used Papermania and Tim Holtz papers, DCWV metallic cardstock, Rose ribbons from Crafty Ribbons, lace, a key charm and a wooden heart which I threaded with pink bakers twine.

A Little Bit Crafty Midway Inspiration

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my midway inspiration post for our 'Celebrate' challenge at A little bit Crafty. We were given lovely blooms to use from Petal Lu so I used the new Papermania capsule collection papers and ribbon which goes with this well :-) I used an image from the graphics fairy, then decorated it with a 3D butterfly from the Madame Payraud collection also by Papermania. 
We have some fabulous sponsors so please pop by and get involved!

Trio of Butterflies Shaker card

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a card I made using some of my favourite Stampin' Up products and obviously we all know butterflies are my absolute favourite! :-) I started off with a panel of white cardstock. I punched a butterfly out of the centre with my stampin up punch, then created two butterflies for either side by stamping matching butterflies and cutting these with the same punch. I then shaped them to make them 3D, added pearl bodies and coated them with Mod Podge to keep their shape. I then stamped the same butterfly image onto heat resistant acetate and used clear sparkle embossing powder to raise the pattern. I placed this acetate behind my aperture and then made a shaker card element by adding glitter between the acetate and the printed paper I placed behind (carefully so the pattern on the paper was symmetrical like real butterflies). I added a border of cardstock, then made my sketch with papers and cardstock from the same collection. I then added small pearls to decorate.

Sarah Hurley 365 Thank you

Good afternoon everyone, how are you? I am here with my project for Sarah Hurley 365 where our theme this time is 'Thank you'. I chose an image from Expedition, one of my favourites, and papers from Steampunk :-) I added a sentiment I created with a frame on a graphics program and printed it out. I used bronze card as my mat for my image and sentiment. I decorated using Jute ribbon and stripe buttons.

Stampin' Up Shadow Stamped Thank you Card

Good evening everyone :-) First of all Happy New Year! Hope this year is fabulous for all of you :-)
I found out which of my cards won the 3rd place in Cardmaker of the year 2013, I havent blogged it yet as I was focusing on christmas so I thought I would share it with you :-) 
I used Stampin' Up Patio Party papers, inks and cardstock, with stamps from stampin up too. I shadow stamped my image and sentiment first-the lighter colour below the darker blue makes the image really pop. I then die cut these with spellbinders dies. I echoed the shadow stamping with the mats I used-placing the yellow and blues slightly off centre of each other. I made my sketch with the papers then placed my image an sentiment.
