Blue for a change

I spotted this lovely image and backing paper over on Mel's blog, I thought it would be just perfect for my niece who wants to be a fashion designer. I have hand stitched the border and used broken chinadistress ink around the edges, nestability label die, ribbon frommy stash and gem brad from stampin up. Have a great day and thanks for looking.

Foiled butterfly

I had such good fun making this card, I have rolls and rolls of foil that I bought and was not using so I did a bit of research and found that they can be used with a laser printer but I don't have one so I printed off the butterflies (which are from the stampin up digital studio) on my ink jet printer and ran it through a laminator, it did not cover the whole image but gave a nice effect which was difficult to photograph, I did the same technique with the plain black card. The white card was embossed. I have added diamond black stickles to the butterfly. I can't wait to have a play with different colours of stamps and foils, so check back to see what happens.

Dad's birthday

 My Dad turns eighty in a couple of weeks so I had a play with some Kaiser products and came up with this card, it's a kaiser scrapbook paper, the border is kaiser fozz felt , the mat and layer is nestabilities label die, I have added metalic rub on's in gold to accent the sails, the brad is again from kaiser and the numbers are cut from a wizard alphabet set. I hope he likes it.

A little note

I have been patiently waiting for the lovely new roses papers to be released by Kaiser, then I spotted this wrapping paper, the photo does not do it justice it is really pretty. I am also having a play with my new cuttlebug quilled daisy kit again. The border is EZ Cut lace 5. The leaves are cut from a die from little claire designs. The corners are provo craft. I have added stickles which has not shown up very well.
