Love You Always

Good morning crafty friends and visitors.

Sharing my post from Poppystamps Blog  

Sharing a card I made for someone special.  This new Poppystamp Schaefer Curve die can be cut into a card placing anywhere   or die cut to use on its own.

A/  I have placed the two dies in the set  to cut an oval shape on my 5" square card.. Tape down well  you do not want these dies to move and get damage OR you can cut separate. 
You would use this 1/2 oval die shape along the left hand edge to create a separate floral cut.
B/ this is the cut out as shown.

C/ I have placed Memory box .Open Studio. Stitched Oval Layers  3rd & 5th (from outer edge) size to judge size I need to make a frame.
D/ Frame adhered as shown.

Coloured with distress inks Bundled Sage & Tattered Rose, using blender foam,  I did a bit of stamping in the same colours on the background before adding my topper.
Poppystamps  Flower Patch  &  Sentiment Grateful Heart  clear stamps.

Dainty border is one from a set of four Tailored Stitches and my favorite flowers Stitched Bloom Trio with Pine Twig. 
Finished with Chirping birds and pearls.

Thank you for stopping by today.. Pam x.

Dream Butterfly.

Good evening crafty friends and visitors..

Sharing my post from Poppystamps Blog  tonight.

Card using new dies from the latest release.

 Think Poppystamps DT are loving these New Release Butterfly dies,  a few of us seem to be using them! unless we are all hoping for Spring weather to arrive..

This "Dream Butterfly" die from the new release is 3.1/2" wide when flat.  so I just arranged on a corner with foliage. 

No background matching die, so I embossed this butterfly in my die cutting machine, then cut around with scissors, as shown.

Using the cutout butterfly in blue card  (as below) I have adhered to the embossed one.. using Pro marker I added some colour and glitter to the background, with random brown dots with marker pen.

Adhered plain white cut out butterfly  just the middle section, so these wings are loose. I  hot glued to the card with some  ribbon mesh.

These two border sides are "Tendril Dream Frame"  just enough on this card with this sweet "Hello" brown with a whit shadow,  foliage "Monterey Vine" with a few Butterfly Sprinkles in brown..
finished card 7.1/2"x 6.1/2".. cut in Aqua and White.

Butterflies and Border.

Hello crafty friends and visitors.. had a play with some new cutting dies today from 

I have used Spring Tastic Border  along with Butterflower  
Sorry cannot find a link to Flowery Branch, I know it was available from the shop.

I made a frame using Creative Expression "Noble Pinpoint square dies", needed a inner square of 5"  to fit this lovely "Spring Tastic border".
Easy card to make once I played around with some ideas ..  lol.

I cut this "Butterflower die" in white & green card, then cut away the green butterfly, adhered onto the white along with some flower heads.

Old Kanban "Spring Butterflies" stamped onto card front in  black ink.
 Green card "Flowery Branch"  using  a few stems only I cut away.

Finished  6.1/2" x 6.1/2" square card.
