Butterfly Card

I just so love this card, made with a cuttlebug BG and a medallian spellbinders die to set the butterfly off. I highlighted the butterfly with a white gel pen to give it a greater impact...

Vintage Art Just One

This is my card for the Just One Swap through Technique Junkies in America. The BG was done with Tim Holtz distress inks in old paper and tea dye, then stamped with music. I love the ballerina image which I stamped with Chocolate Ancient Page onto plain white cardstock. The flowers were coloured with gold buffing cream and pearls applied, the ticket came through an image google search. Sending to America today!

Bookmark Swaps

NZ Stampers run regular swaps and one of the latest was a bookmark for your partner with their interests on. I had just seen this corner page technique on Technique Junkies so decided to make one of those as well.

Yahoo I have solved it

Have spent two days off and on trying to solve how I can get blog posts to transfer to my facebook... at last success!

Swap Card NZS

I love slicing up backgrounds, I started with white cardstock, coloured with Kaleidacolor browns & then embossed with my circle cuttlebug folder. I cut the background into 1 inch squares (yes I am a quilter also), mounted on jac paper and sprinkled gold glitter in between. The image and sentiment are by Impression Obsession and I coloured the coffee cup with copics and then covered with dimensional glue.

Glenda's Birthday Card

Add caption
This card was made with Tim Holtz's distress inks which I coloured white cardstock with. When dry I masked with a plastic mask given by friend and fellow stamper Jinny and coloured over top with more distress ink. The bird and birdcage were cut with a Tim Holtz die, I added pearls and a swirl also from a TH dies and the sentiment was added last.
