Bold Butterfly......

I've been cutting new Stamp Sets and Hubbie out at Cricket so I am inking them up.........Don't you just love Cricket - Not the game (well l do like it) but the fact that I have some spare time WOOHOO!

Its so quite warm here and its lovely and cool in my craft room. Also I can see 'MR T' from my desk. Would you believe it we are Misting him with a water spray, he seems to love it!!!! I really want him to say Rebbit!!! (not sure if thats spelt right!)------NEXT WE WILL BE CATCHING SLUGS FOR HIM I bet!

Anyway enough of me Rebbitting on Hee! He! Sorry:-)

The first stamp set I mounted is this Bold Butterfly - I chose Bordering Blue and Close to Cocoa as my cardstock. The base card is half a sheet of A4 folded in half, then a strip of Close to Cocoa designer paper added to the lefthand side.

I cuttlebugged a piece of whisper white with Swiss Dots embossing folder and added this to a layer of Close to Cocoa. The Frame was made with 2 scalloped nestabilitie dies, put through the Big Shot at the same time.

I added some Caramel Gingham ribbon around the frame before adding it to the embossed layer. The Butterfly was stamped on whisper white with Bordering Blue ink, the outline stamp was positioned over the bold image using the Stamp a ma jig.... Next I stamped the outline Butterfly on some vellum cardstock with Versamark ink then sprinkled the HEAT & STICK Powder over the top and heated with the Heat Gun. Then I sprinkled Dazzling Diamond glitter over the top and heated it again to set.

It looks like pale white doesn't it. I cut out and attached it to the Blue Butterfly with glue dots. I added a Close to Cocoa flower in the bottom righthand corner and popped up with a 3D Dimensional.

The sentiment is from the Seasonal Wishes stamp set.

Thanks for looking,

Hi Jenny, WOW what a lovely website you have and you have a beautiful style! I am so glad I found you as I will definitely be back! Thanks for the lovely comments on my blog. I too hope you get a better catty, but our second one was WAY better than the first, so I am sure it will be better. Well I hope you have a great weekend!
