Well it's Saturday and raining again...what to do?.... make some cards - Yippee!

A coworker just had a baby girl so I decided to make a baby jumper card that I had once seen on a utube video.  I remembered the idea so I just went for it I have to say it turned out really cute.

I started with a regular 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card and used my 1 3/8" circle punch to make the collar and leg openings. I then punched out scallop circles with a 2" punch and then used a 1 /3/8" punch to end up with a round hollow scallop circle. I glued them to the openings and then just cut off the excess.  I added some glitter here and there- of course, and then tied a bow around the waiste. I finished by adding a few pink pearls.

Hope it inspires you to create one too!! 

Have a great weekend all!

Butterfly Tag

Well I've been having some fun lately and all because I've had some time to scrap.  I figured the best way to test out new techniques was to do them on tags.  That way if I mess it up it's not so bad and I can start over.
So here is my first technique - ink resist.  I stamped a beautiful butterfly in white ink and embossed it with clear sparkling embossing powder. I then applied a few different colors of distress ink all over the tag and simply wiped off the ink on my butterfly to reveal the white.  It was easy and quick.

I added some ribbon and a flower that I retouched with glitter and glimmer mist. Since this side of the tag was so pretty I just couldn't stop there.... so I also did the other!!

I added a flower on this side too!  Just love butterflies..... so pretty.
The tag now belongs to lovely Leigh-Ann who also has a passion for butterflies.... will have to make more!!

Have a nice day all,

Hugs xx
