Trio of Butterflies Shaker card

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a card I made using some of my favourite Stampin' Up products and obviously we all know butterflies are my absolute favourite! :-) I started off with a panel of white cardstock. I punched a butterfly out of the centre with my stampin up punch, then created two butterflies for either side by stamping matching butterflies and cutting these with the same punch. I then shaped them to make them 3D, added pearl bodies and coated them with Mod Podge to keep their shape. I then stamped the same butterfly image onto heat resistant acetate and used clear sparkle embossing powder to raise the pattern. I placed this acetate behind my aperture and then made a shaker card element by adding glitter between the acetate and the printed paper I placed behind (carefully so the pattern on the paper was symmetrical like real butterflies). I added a border of cardstock, then made my sketch with papers and cardstock from the same collection. I then added small pearls to decorate.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

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…
