White n Blue

Inspired by Sue Wilson

In Flight

 I went to a Sizzix  Demo on Friday by Pete Hughes what a talent he is. 
I learnt lots of new ways to use my sizzix dies and my bigshot. 
I was sorry when it ended could have watched him all over again. 
He inspired me to make this card ........

 I used my new Tim Holtz Butterflight decorative border on this card,
 lge Marianne die and 2 Cheery Lynn butterflies,  
I inked the edges of the butterfly slightly in black to match  the  Stampin-Up card
 I cut out on the front of the card with a sizzix movers and shapers butterfly,
then put the cut-out inside the card. added small Tonic punched  flowers. 
Wasnt sure whether to bling it up or leave it ........

Laurel n Hardy

Made this for my hubby's b/day

Metal Squares

I made this card for my Grandson's 18th and am entering it into Emma's October challenge
"Happy Birthday Brian"

I cut out 1 inch squares in silver mirror and grey card  embossed the silver with my little dots folder used my stapler to make crosses on the grey.(this took forever you had to get it just right, but I am pleased with the result) I used large letters stamped, and  embossed in clear embossing powder then I turned silver gems turned upside down , this way they looked more like metal. mounted all on black dot card with key and 18 , Happy Birthday .
I was very pleased with the end result and my grandson loved it.

Roses with love

Loved making this card wanted to use a script stamp I got from Donington Craft fair and my new set of Marianne Die " Flower Fantasy"  and rose die . The script is from  Oakhouse Studio and the words are :-
The English summer garden is a riot of colour,texture and fragrance.
The summer starts for me with the blooming of the magnolia.
However it is the rose in it's many forms that is the quintessential summer bloom.
The roses come in such a number of shapes and sizes they are the perennial favourite of many.
I prefer them under planted with lavender, forget-me-nots and spring bulbs.
Other personal favourites include,tulips lacecap hydrangea, hosta's and aquilegia.
Later as draws in the michaelmas daisies prolong the colour.
this stamp just goes with many flowers, in this card I used the rose as my theme . 
I think I am in my purple mood this month.
