CAS Butterflies Card

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Well since I have been poorly with a run of viruses youll have noticed I have been pretty quiet. I just havent had the energy and felt my crafting mojo was on an unwanted holiday! Anyway, I thought I would have a go at something really different for me in a ploy to rediscover my crafting mojo and I am actually pretty pleased with the results! I find CAS really difficult so dont generally use this style but threw myself into it and with my favourite subject-butterflies! (Thinking if anything can inspire me it's butterflies!) I have this gorgeous Swallowtail butterfly stamp and it really hasnt had enough use yet, I am sorry but I cant remember the make of the stamp-if anyone can enlighten me that would be really helpful! I dug out the Stampin' Up inks I won for the 3rd place cardmaker of the year in their category and gave them their first real use! I stamped two butterflies directly onto the card blank, then stamped a butterfly in a complimenting colour onto a scrap of card, and I cut round this with scissors leaving a tiny border. I then placed this in the middle of my card on 3D foam pads. What do you think?

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
CASology: Up
Simon Says Stamp and Show: Anything Goes
Creative Moments: Things with Wings
Addicted to Stamps: Addicted to CAS
Sunday Stamper: Nature

Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments :-)

  20. Was wondering how you had done the one in the middle. I thought you had masked it and then staped the other two. Like your idea of raising on foam pads though. Hugs Mrs A.

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
