Rudolph Day - March 2014

My, oh my, the year is simply whizzing past.  Here is my post for Rudolph Day over at Stamping for pleasure.

This time I have chosen to use the cute Barkley from the CC  christmas Inspiration CD.  I have put a bit of glamour dust on to these, but not really showing up in pics. See you soon.  Lynn x

Sketch Saturday 302

This week's sketch is by Cathy at Sketch Saturday.  Here is the sketch, and my card.

I have used SU framelit dies, ribbon, dsp and sizzix flower die.  The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat, but I don't know whether it is still available.  Lovely creations by the design team. Lynn x

A stitch in time

Hi there, just fluttering by Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge blog - just about made it this week.
This week you need to show stitching (faux or real) on your creation, plus a butterfly.  My card uses several SU stamp sets, Banner Blast, Gorgeous Grunge, 2-step stamping butterflies. The emboss folder is a border die I had free with Simply Cards and Papercraft this month (issue 122).  Thanks for looking. Lynn x

Fancy folds

I have been browsing my Pinterest board again, and I have made these cards from my inspiration board - this first one is a tri-fold card, and the second is an A5, which has had the front z-folded to house a bookmark.

These cards use papers from Crafter's Companion - Bebunni paper kit, and SWALK CD rom.  The flowers on the second one are SU and matching dies. Thanks for looking, and have a great weekend. Lynn x

Sketch Saturday 300

This week Sketch Saturday have reached a milestone sketch of 300.  This sketch was the very first one launched -
For this one I have used a stamp set I bought a few weeks ago from Crafter's Companion called 'Sweet Little Girl' from the SWALK collection.

Now if you follow Jen Nelson's blog (The Tiny Blue Butterfly), she has set a little challenge for herself and her friend Rachel.  "shop from our own unused crafty stash and not buy new goodies for the next 60 days".  She has invited folks to take up the challenge too.  As I had already decided that during Lent I would not buy any crafty goodies, I thought I would join in the fun.  So this stamp is from my "shopping my stash" box.  Thanks for looking.

Butterfly Challenge No. 2

I decided to make a little butterfly-shaped box this time for this challenge of Mrs. A's, which  is butterfly, button and bow (or more) -
I used a template which I found on pinterest here (pdf download).  I printed my card on both sides using co-ordinating papers from a Crafter's Companion SWALK CD.  The swirl is a Marianne die, and the butterfly punch is SU, which I layered several times.  The little tag is from Clearly Besotted.  As I have used snippets for the embellishments I shall pop over to the Snippets Playground too. Thanks for looking. Lynn x
