I'm Hosting this week at Just Us Girls

I'm Hosting over at Just Us Girls for Colour Week.
and chose these colours as they just scream
Tim's Oxide Inks to me.
 I decided to make a fancy fold to show off
the beautiful butterflies from the latest
Stamp Set/Die from STAMPlorations called
Fluttery and Fluttery Dies
These were inked with
Spiced Marmalade/Fossilized Amber
and Peacock Feathers with an extra one
cut and added to the middle.
I sponged the edges and then added
some random stamping from
SU Timeless Textures.
Added a butterfly to the inside with
a sentiment from STAMPlorations Trendy Butterflies 2
and there you have it.

Now pop over to Our Blog to see what our
January Guest Cathy and the Team created.
Hope you find time to join us this week.
Love to see you in the Gallery.

As this is the first time I have used this stamp/die set
I am adding it to the Gallery at
Just Add Ink Check it out  Here

It's simply a 'Deer'

Hey there Crafty Ones - today post is for
the new Challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More
and I couldn't be happier when I saw the beautiful mood board
for our Photo Inspiration Challenge.
You will know what caught my eye as
you will have seen me using this gorgeous deer from 
a few times now and what got me excited also was
the amazing ribbon I used which came all the way from Scotland
with my Christmas card - how perfect.
This was a simple card to make using black card stock and 
gold paper to frame my deer.
 I simply smotheredthe black card with Versamark  
and heat embossed in gold.
Added some Inka Gold splatters,
that beautiful ribbon and some 
Starform strips down either side.
My Merry Christmas sentiment was also
heat embossed and from Gina K Designs.
Yay! my first Christmas card for 2018.

I love looking to see what others pick out
for Photo Inspiration Challenges and
the Team have created a gorgeous variety
for you to oooh and aaah over so
go check them all out Here
and come join us. 
Love to see you in our Gallery!

It's all 'PURPLE'

Hi there Crafty Ones.
You can see by the heading my card is all about Purple
and it's for the latest challenge over at Less is More 
You can find the details  Here
Of course a lot of you know that it's 
'My Favourite Colour' so
of course I had to play!

Brusho's make for a fabulously easy background
and that is what I used here - just Purple.
I started with heat embossing my
then cut from a MFT stitched die.
I added black glitter to the centre and some
random purple Nuvo Drops.
My sentiment is from

It's the First Twofer Challenge!

Hi there! So glad you dropped in
'cause I am delighted to see the
Fabulous Twofer Card Challenge #1 is Live!
We all (or should) know the Delightful Darnell
who is challenging us to make 2 different cards 
with the same stamp/die but for 2 different occasions.
I know there are going to be gazillions
of crafters out there to encourage
Darnell and her Fabulously Talented Team
on there New Journey
SO...... let the fun begin.
I was sooooooooooooooo excited
when I saw what the prompt was FEATHERS!
and I had only recently got out my favourite
SU Four Feathers Set for another card.
On to Card 1
The current and addictive challenge over at
CAS Mix Up is to use cling wrap
and what better way to show off my feathers!
I used Brusho's on glossy photo paper
popped onto stitched die cut card stock.
Sentiment is from Paper Smooches.
Added a few gems and attached cotton
to the feathers.

Card 2
I made as a male card.
The background woodgrain is from
Dark Room Door and stamped with
Tim's Frayed Burlap as is the
front feather. The other two are
in Gathered Twigs.
These were popped in front of
some wrapping paper from some
sweets my sister received from
an overseas friend and is very brittle.
Just knew it would come in handy one day!
Sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping.
Finished with some jute on the feathers.
So of course these cards are going over to
The Twofer Challenge over Here
