Spring is in the Air for JUGS #287 Word Week

Spring is in the Air  - just not where I live.
 We are in our Autumn but that doesn't stop me from
making a card with bright cheerful colours.

Sharyn as our Hostess chose SPRING
for Word Week
and I am sure all my friends across the pond
 are looking forward to it after a
Long and Cold Winter.

Here is a close up of the butterfly which was fussy cut
after adding crystal effects and popped on top of the image
 but doesn't show the shine.

I also used the following items on my card -
 White & Green card stock
Designer Paper and Image - Fred She Said + the
Pre coloured image called Marigolds & Morpho
Fancy That - Leafy Swirls
Sentiment is from Gina K Designs
Just Rite Tags
Own Ribbon/Micro Beads
Pop over to Our Blog and check out
the other inspirational cards by the
Design Team and our Guest Kathy
and hope to see your entry there.
In doing so you could be our Guest for JUNE.
Thanks for popping in.
I would also like to enter this in the
Mellow Yellow.

It's Mellow Yellow at Top Tip Tuesday

It has been a while since I played with a challenge over at
Top Tip Tuesday but the current challenge has me
playing with Mellow Yellow.
The Script Dies are all the rage at the moment so
of course I 'needed' them. I bought one online and it arrived
in the mail yesterday so after seeing the challenge above
I got straight into cutting that Hello die and made this cas card.
I did say on an earlier post you wouldn't see
 'feathers' on my next post
but there are those stencils that keep calling me instead.
Perfect for a simple background.
Here are the products that I used
Basic white and yellow card stock
Lawn Fawn Scripty Hello
(cut several and popped for depth)
TCW Mini Texture Stencil
Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers Distress Ink
Stampin' Up Yo Yo Yellow Ink
Friend Sentiment from Stampin' Up - Just Believe
#Tip If you have a word that you want to leave a
letter out cover it with washi tape ink up the word
then remove the tape before stamping on your card.
I think I will play with this colour again before the week is out
as it is so bright and colourful with so many possibilities.
Thanks for popping in

Sketch Time for Atlantic Hearts #101

It's time to play with Sketch Challenge #101 at
I know I have Feathers on my brain at present
and that is because a very dear friend sent me the
Four Feathers Stamp/Die from Stampin' Up
and I can't stop playing with it.
I decided to go away from flowers as I had
that set sitting close by. Love it!
So here goes with what I used on my card
White & Brown card stock
Stampin' Up Four Feathers Stamp/Die Set
Tim Holtz Speckles Stencil
Tim Holtz Distress Inks in
Forest Moss/Antique Linen
Memento Inks in
Morocco Potter's Clay Peanut Brittle
Jute String
Pop Dots
I sure hope you like it and thanks for dropping in.
PS My next scheduled post doesn't have Feathers hehe
but that doesn't mean there won't be
 as I may do one on the spur of the moment
after all those feathers are still floating around.
Till next time - Cherrio from

I stuck to the format pretty closely by adding
the heart as above.

Here are the products I used -
Peach card stock
Designer Paper - Kaisercraft Lady Rose
Cuttlebug Heart Die
Sullivan's small heart die glittered
Sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping -

A fairly cas card but so colourful with such
pretty paper.
