Lots more bookmarks

A couple of months ago I made some bookmarks. With butterflies. I love using butterflies. Here is a link to that post. This post is to show some more of the bookmarks I made with a very similar style. I used the same Tim Holtz butterfly die. I used paper scraps from various sources. Quite frankly I am glad I found something so useful to make with it. The main difference between these bookmarks and the first one I posted is that these have an added row of pearls on the butterflies to create the body. I also added a letter on some of them, the first letter of the name of the person who was getting the bookmark. I reckon I will soon make up quite a few more. They are very handy to have. Especially for someone like me who is currently reading three books at once!

You can click on the images to view the a bigger photo of each of them.

Time for another quick card. This is made with a pre-coloured topper from Lili of the Valley. I finally found a good way to use where I do indeed use the whole image. I used a stamp available at Panduro, which I once won in a challenge, and added glitter. I put it on a dark background and added a simple grey wood background as a side panel, topped with a ribbon and bow from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I did indeed get a little time to craft this weekend and I have made three cards. I think I till put a film on this evening and pretend to watch it while I colour up some new digis I just bought! It’s good to try to get relax a bit sometimes.

It’s been a while since I added a card where I have coloured in the image myself. So here is one I have coloured with copics. It is an image by the talented Krista Smith of Saturated Canary. I have made a step card, with a blank from Whichcraft. The ribbon and lace (I absolutely love that lace!) are by Wild Orchid Crafts, and so are all the flowers. The punchers I have used are by Martha Stewart, the paper by Tim Holtz and the sentiment stamp is by Lili of the Valley.


And here is a side on view.


This card has been entered into the following challenges:

Card and Scrap – Alt er tilladt (anything goes)

The blue vase

Mid September already… Wasn’t it just Christmas? I can barely keep up anymore! I guess I should try to get cracking this weekend making some Christmas cards. That is, if I can find the time in between the 5 other cards I have to get done. Either way I am glad to spend some time making more cards. I haven’t had time to do anything the past month! I haven’t even had time to start on the colouring classes I purchased a month ago. Thankfully it looks like October will be a bit more predictable with a little less plans on the menu.

Anyway. Card! As you can see, this is another simple one. I have once again used a pre-coloured topper by Lili of the Valley. The ribbon is by Wild Orchid Crafts and the pearls I have had for a few years so I simply no longer remember!

Have a great weekend!


Peaches and greens

Aren’t weddings wonderful? I think so. So here is a wedding card!

This one is made with Pion Papers and an image by Wild Rose Studio, a pre-coloured one. I have made butterflies and leaves with Martha Stewart punchers. The ribbon and big pearls are from The Hobby House and the smallers ones for the body of the butterflies are purchased at Bikuben. Additionally I have (of course) used flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts.
