Autumn Tones Tattered Leaves Card

Good afternoon, hope you are well :-) I am here with a card I have made using a couple of prizes I won a little while ago :-) I used Sizzix Bigz tattered leaves die and embossing folders-I embossed the leaves with the embossing folder it matches with to give the leaves the proper dimension and texture. I then coloured the leaves and embossed panel with distress inks and gilding wax to give a gold sheen. I used a sentiment from Sheena Douglass stamps and die cut with Sizzix nesting dies. I then coloured this with ink and gilding wax. I placed my design on a pearlescent card blank which I inked at the edges with ink too to tie it all in.

Butterfly Blues

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a card I have made using a photo I took of a gorgeous butterfly I saw in the butterfly house at Natural History Museum :-) I printed the image onto canvas to give it real depth and texture, I then used Papermania Burleigh Blue papers, buttons, and bows, paired with polka dot ribbon, pearl gems and a vellum sentiment. I hand drew faux stitches around the card too.

A Little Bit Crafty-CAS Midway Inspiration

Hey everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my midway inspiration card for our 'Clean and Simple' challenge at A Little Bit Crafty here. I chose one of my favourite Stampin' Up images and sentiment. I stamped out an extra heart and cut round the little butterfly, bird and part of the flower pattern in the heart and placed these on 3D foam pads for dimension.
