Butterfly Thinking of You Card

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a card using some new stampin' up stash I adore! I began with a panel of white stamping card as my focal piece. I cut a butterfly out of the middle of this with my stampin' up punch which matches the Papillon set I used for my butterfly stamp. I then stamped a butterfly on either side of the negative space left by punching out the butterfly. Above the butterfly shaped hole I stamped 'Thinking of you'. Next I added a panel of paper, placed to show the pattern through the hole in as close to symmetrical as I could manage-like real butterflies!
I then mounted this panel on stampin' up coredinations card. I covered my card blank in coordinating paper mounted onto coredinations card, then placed my focal panel and matching ribbon.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafty Creations: Winged Things

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…
