The trees have a mix off "Stampendous" on them.. Chunky White embossing Enamel.. Stardust Transparent.. stash embossing green powder.  All sprinkled on these Trees and heated from underneath with a heat tool..




Sorry you cannot see the sparkle on this snowflake!!..I used versemark clear ink and Stardust Transparent powder, give a gentle sparkle.

Butterfly and flowers.


Good afternoon everyone.

Thank you for your comments on my card yesterday, another card using the same die Memory box.. "Angel Wings Butterfly"..Thought I would do another card so you can see what it is like, die cut on its own, really pretty hope you think so!




Thought I had better use different colours combinations,  I had to take these photos in the garden (Bit windy) as I could not get true colours again..LOL.

This butterfly stays in the card..
I cut another butterfly in card and one in lemon velum, this was embossed in a embossing folder.

I used DIs on the embossed flowers.

Of course Glamour dust...

Butterfly Kisses.


Good afternoon, everyone.. Boy is it hot here in South Yorkshire today!, hope you all have this beautiful weather.


New and oldish Memory Box Dies today.. SORRY my favourite colours again!!!LOL .

Not a good photo for some reason.



New memory box "Angel Wings Butterfly"  With the oldish (last release) "Butterfly Exhibit"

I was looking for a fancy butterfly in my collection, could not believe this die fitted  perfect on the "Angel Wings"..  Love this design..
Really easy card to make..
I cut a card size 5.1/2" x  6.1/2" placed the Angel Wings where I wanted the cut and embossing to be, coloured with inks while still in the die..cut one more solid from the die to layer up.. Cut Butterfly Exhibit and adhered on the card as shown. Plus some Glamour dust.!!!
Stamp and ribbon with foliage to finish..




Still not true colours but you can see the dimension on the Butterflies.
