Prima Zephyr number 5

Todays card uses Prima Zephyr patterned paper and matching flowers, Leaves and Journalling notes.The Butterfly is actually 2 memory box dies – Kaliadascope and moonlight. There is a Cheery Lyn tropical flourish tucked in the back, and i added some ribbon, and lots of bling!The colours in this paper range are beautiful and rich, and a nice change from pink for Female style cards!I had a lovely day at paper flourish today, teaching my Mature ladies – lots of giggles which is always fun, but it’s back to work tomorrow, so an early night for me tonight… Til tomorrow…

Prima Zephyr Collection

I feel in the mood for something bold and bright this afternoon, and this card fits the bill nicely! The paper, chipboard and Journalling notecard are all from the Prima Zephyr collection,and the sentiment and Pool Party seam binding are from stampin Up.The butterfly was die cut using Memory Box Moonlight and Kaliedascope butterfly  dies, and I used a little bakers twine as well. I kept the canvas keys til last because these are something new I found and I love them.  They are Prima  resist canvas ( the pack these came from was the clocks, gears and keys pack). Its a pack chock full of die cut shapes, and when you colour them – I used a tim holtz ranger ink pad and a blending tool, there is a pattern that resists the ink.  I bought the pack with the birds in it too, which I haven’t used yet, but may get the opportunity now that my week – end has started – Yay!So looking forward to getting into the craft room and playing wiht all my new paper purchases! Til tomorrow….

English rose stamp number 3

here is my final card in my Kaisercraft English Rose stamp series. This time I have teamed it with Kaisercraft Madame Boutique paper for a totally different look. I coloured it with tim holtz distress inks and my aquabrush, and used the Cheery Lyn Polynesian sails oval die. I also used Memory box moonlight butterfly and kaliedascope butterfly dies, and the For You sentiment was stamped using a stamp from Stampin Up elements of Style set and fussy cut. It’s been very cold here today, and I am thinking of dragging the heater into the card room before I go through there later! Til tomorrow….

Cuttlebug and dies

I still have a couple of my prima meadow lark series to show but we will get back to them. Today ( and tomorrow) I wanted to show the final few cards I made with the last of my American crafts Neapolitan paper collection. For those that have been following you will remember that I used it in my scarp series. I had just a little left over and so decided to finish the bits and pieces left. Altogether I made 19 cards out of my 4 sheets of paper which I was quite surprised about. So, todays card made using a variety of dies and my cuttlebug  and American crafts Neapolitan paper, and a list of dies – Moonlight butterfly, kaliedoscope  butterfly, amani circle, meadow leaf ( all by memory box) spellbinders scalloped circles, and Stampin Up Party Blossom . The sentiment was all Stampin Up products – Decorative label punch,Four frames stamp set and petite pairs stamp set. Speaking of which my siser Kay brought me some new products this morning and I have had a great afternoon inking ,stamping , colouring and die cutting – the best way to spend an afternoon! Til tomorrow….
