Green or Gold…..

Hello. A new challenge has started at The Alphabet Challenge. Meg has chosen the theme of ‘Green or Gold’. Here is my card:

So – did I go for gold or what???!!!

Using the same embossing folder used previously, I embossed with some gold mirror card – and that shine and detail is stunning in real life…….

I didn’t want to hide too much of the design, so I just added the ‘Sweet Tulip’ die from Simon says Stamp – layered three times, and another sentiment strip.

The Design Team has some very varied makes as inspiration – so I hope you can come and join us with this challenge. xx

A Butterfly and a Tulip…

Hello everyone. Did you imagine I was going to tell a joke about a butterfly and a tulip, walking into a bar……. 🙂 🙂 hmmm – I might have to think of a joke about that.

It’s my turn to host at Cardz4Galz and I chose the theme of ‘Wings’……….I thought that would create a lot of varied creations and I hope you can come and join us this time.

By wings, we mean exactly that – birds, butterflies, dragonflies, fairies, dragons……such a wide interpretation, I can’t wait to see what you create. The Design Team has some interesting and varied inspiration, so I hope you have a look and see how they have each created their projects.

I decided to go CAS – very clean, very simple – well, once I had decided where I was going with this………. 🙂

I used the Simon Says Stamp ‘Sweet Tulip‘ wafer die, and cut it out four times from card with double-sided sticky adhesive, so I could stack them all together for dimension.

The butterfly die is from Spellbinders – very old, very much used by my mum in the past.

I used some Distress Oxide in Carved Pumpkin and Barn Door on a piece of card stock, blended, then cut out the back of the butterfly. The inner butterfly cut from black card-stock to create some drama.

The sentiment is from a stamp set from Crafters Companion, and stamped in Altenew Obsidian pigment ink for the crisp letters.

I look forward to seeing you in our gallery……….. 🙂 🙂
