Simply Less is More # 143

Good afternoon All.
I hope I find you well. We are expecting a huge storm in the UK on Sunday night into monday morning, I really hope it`s not as bad as the weather man has threatened, and,if it is, I hope you all stay safe and well.
I`ve already told my boss that if it`s really bad, I`m not going in. Luckily I can make the time up :)
Well surprisingly I`m back with my entry for this weeks Simply Less is More challenge and it`s still only saturday woohoo!
The recipe for this weeks challenge is to use STRING orTWINE.

I was inspired to make the butterfly by a headband I put out at work last week. It had a beautiful glittered and bejewelled butterfly on it and, in true crafters style I immediately thought that it would look fab on a card.
So the next day I stamped a butterfly from Chocolate Baroque in clear ink and embossed it in silver EP then glittered it in two different silver glitters ( plain and holographic).
Once the glitter had dried I added some clear gems and Voila!

A close up of the butterfly. I should have taken a piccy of the original to compare really.
I used my Memory Box Circle Burst die on the front panel and backed it with some more of the two tone sparkly paper I found last week hidden away in a drawer, this time in pink.

This is what the paper looks like from another angle.
I was going to use pink Bakers Twine but I found some of this sparkly Craft Yarn so thought I`d use that instead. Hope that`s ok.
The sentiment is by Flourishes, stamped and embossed in Silver EP.
A quick, simple but effective card I think.

Simply Less is More # 142

Happy sunday afternoon all!

I`m back today with my entry for this weeks Simply Less is More challenge. It`s theme week and we are to make a CaS card using trees.I`m not sure if mine is quite CaS enough, I seem to have got a bt carried away, sorry.

I made a panel and cut out a large circle using a SB circle die and backed it with some two tone sparkly paper..
The tree is made from lots and lots of punched fern leaves from white glitter card and arranged in a tree shape.
I added a star from silver glitter paper.
The sentiment is Waltzing Mouse Say it loud Winter Holiday set embossed in silver EP.

Short and sweet again I`m afraid as I`m busy busy as usual. Hopefully I`ll get round to visit some of you later.

Simply Less is More # 140

Morning All!
I`m actually here to share card made for Simply Less is More. I know...it`s been way too long and I have missed it so much. ( note to self, Make more effort)

The challenge this week is to make a white on white Christmas card and as I`m still in full flow Christmas mode I thought it would be a shame to miss it.

I used a Cuttlebug Snowflake EF for the background.
The leters are cut using a Die namics Alpha Die set, mounted on foampads.
The flower is from a pack by Docrafts especially made to colour yourself but I`ve left it white and shaped to make a Christmas Rose. I added some white stamen to the middle of the flower and some punched fern leaves.

I`m determined to join in more often again no matter what so hopefully I`ll see you all again next week.

Fairy Happy Birthday

Hi All, another flying visit from me I`m afraid to share a card I made for my managers little girl`s 3rd birthday.

I love this little fairy from Lili of the Valley, she`s gorgeous and so versatile.
I`ve colored her with Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pens and glittered her up a bit with Glamour Dust.
The DP is some more that I downloaded a long time ago and have forgotten where from.
The image is mounted onto a SB Fleur de Lis die cut in lilac and I`ve added some pretty flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the Range.
A swirly leaf die from Marianne designs and some rose leaves with pink stamen to finish.
The sentiment is PC generated.
