Butterfly ATC

I thought it would be fun to make an ATC using the Tuesday morning sketch, the colour throwdown colours and the little red wagon theme

and here it is

The big butterfly is die cut and I stencilled through the cut out
The clouds are stencilled
The smaller butterflies are stamped
The border is 3D enamel effect
The 'sentiment' is stamped and heat embossed and I added some sparkle around the clouds

anything goes

thanks for looking




thank you Little Red Wagon x

Cheers Shaker

It's time for a new Sparkles Monthly challenge

the new theme today is

'A Shaker Card'

here is my take

I had made the background a while ago and not used it so I cut out the glass on my cricut and filled it with gems and sequins

If you've never made a shaker card before then give it a go it is not very complicated and if you have nesting dies it is quite easy 

you will need a set of nesting dies in a shape of your choice,  regular card, craft foam, a piece of acetate or some flat, clear plastic packaging and something to fill it e.g. sequins, confetti, small die cuts or punches etc. 

step 1

choose your biggest shape and die cut it in card

step 2

go down two sizes from your nest set and cut out the centre

this is your top piece

step 3

cut your biggest shape again in craft foam

step 4

go down one size from your nest set and cut out the centre

this is your bottom piece

step 5

cut your biggest shape in the acetate (use scissors if you don't want to die cut it)

this is your centre piece


glue the foam piece to a card blank (or whatever you're using as the base) 

put your filling in the gap

glue your acetate on top (don't get glue on the filling pieces)

and on top of this glue down the top piece

and that is your shaker

decorate it as you like 

so make your own and join in with the challenge at Sparkles Monthly

see you there

It's time for a new Cardz 4 Galz challenge

todays new theme is


here is my take

I have no stamps or die cutters with an oriental theme and nothing panda either so I ended up hand drawing some bamboo and pandas and actually I think they turned out ok

I stayed with a green theme and mounted the picture onto green and blue ombre card and stamped a sentiment with green distress ink

So have a look at Cardz 4 Galz and make your own oriental paper project to enter

see you there

Pine Cones

It's time for a new Winter Wonderland challenge

'pine cones and poinsettias'
