Framed origami butterflies

Its been a while since I have had the urge to play origami.  A little magazine with coordinating paper was poking out at me this morning while I was tidying up. The house work stopped completely in its tracks and off I ran to play...
I have had these frames laying around to scrapbbok with kids school photos forever. Well everything is so very digital nowadays I just thought make something with this and gift it away... so here is the final project. I love it.
Now back to cleaning up.
Have a happy rainy day.

Beautuiful Flower shop

I was inspired by Pinterest and my new Flower Shop stamp set and punch. I just love punches. They're quick and easy to grab stamp and punch.

Lemon lime twist, Peekaboo peach and my all time favourite Melon Mambo make for a simple and lovely girly card.

I stamped the back of the card marbled and considered using it as the base, but felt it be too busy. So I just flipped the card. Looks better now.

Do you stamp the back?

Happy Birthday

A happy rainy birthday card making moment. While trying to garden in between showers I stopped to play indoors.  The temperature dropped from 11 to 5 degrees. It is freezing. A couple of late cards on the agenda but still worthy of sending. 

I used the new in colours powder pink and lemon lime twist, the new dsp pack and the happy birthday thinlit dies. With tone on tone Daisy Delight stamp and the easy peasy coordinating punch.

The A5 card cut to a 14.5cm length and 10.5cm normal width. I calculated the rectangles to be 9x5 9x4 4x5 4x4 to fit nicely. (For the record you could cut lengths of 9cm and work from there).

Marbled eclipse baby

Like everyone else. I had a go at the eclipse technique card. I have no idea why its called this but it was fun anyway.

Stamped the marbled background. Lined up the letters from middle. Stuck down to a black base and used 3 dimensionals to lift up the letters. Very easy really.

Baby card

Beautiful card and easily changed up for different sentiments. These I made specifically for babies, so to speak.

Pretty and simple. I love it

Using a small acrylic block to add background stamps and where my inky pad was dripping off the block created even more effect.

Oh So Succulent terrarium.

Don't you just love it when something just works for you. A second colour combo challenge got me thinking succulents and little terrariums. The terrariums I have been making in stained glass and saw something in paper on Pinterest got me going...

 #Theartfulstamperscombo2 Excited to see it finished. Measuring a smallish 12cm high and 7cm square at the base. Adding a few succulents sponged and curled, takes a little while but well worth the effort. Plus having an escapee like "time away" and actually completing a mini project, yippee. It feels great.

Monograms in stained glass leadlight

I love the way the A turned out. For our family The Adams family.
A request for an M in yellow got me thinking, what are the most popular letters?
