Butterfly Card

Hi friends,
My blog posts are like buses, you don't see one for ages then two come at the same time!
(note to self.... must do better)!
So, here I am so quickly with another card, this time I've used Couture Creations butterfly die which is lovely. I had another idea pop into my head for this die while I was making this card so I may be back with that tomorrow.
I've also used the Couture Creations swirl die and mounted it onto cream card which I embossed using cuttlebug Chicken Wire folder.
the butterfly is cut in wine card and the wings sit up giving a lovely effect but they do lay flat for posting.
the frame is spellbinders resplendent recangles and the sentiment is whimsy. this card is my DT card for Oysterstamps so everything I've used is available from them.
check out their new arrivals, OMG they have some yummy new dies and stamps.
hmmm so, should I try out that butterfly idea that is in my head now? I won't sleep until its out of there will I.
watch this space!
thanks for stopping by.

White heat embossing

Hi crafters,
I had to come and show you my latest card, I'm really pleased with this one.
I've been meaning to try white heat embossing for ages and finally got round to it. It won't be the last time I do it either!
here is my card
sorry about the poor photography again.
I've used Kraft card and layered it on white card.
I stamped the gorgeous Heartfelt Creations Aster stamp and then used the stampendous white embossing powder.....simples!
then I added a little colour using copics.
a white ribbon and a sentiment finished the card nicely.
this was such a simple card to make and very little colouring needed but I love the end result. that's such a rare thing for me to say about my own cards.
I hope you like too.
thank you for stopping by,
Suzanne x

hello, i'm having a nice quiet sunday and managed to fit in some crafting.
I just love Kraft card and it looks great with red so I came up with this card...
It's bright red in real life but my photography skills are rubbish!
I've use a gorgeous heart die from Impression Obsession
I cut it out of the cardstock and then put it back in. why have I not done this before? I'm so pleased with the result.
I'll try it with other dies later.
this is the inside of the card.
dies available from
thank you for stopping by.

Flowers for spring

oh it looks like spring is finally here.
I've spent the last two days sitting in the garden with my images and copics. what could be better than that?
here is one of  the images,

this is a Heartfelt Creations stamp set called Vintage Floret Bouquet.
its is such a pleasure to colour these heartfelt stamps, I love them.
and here is the image made up into an easle card
I used grande  labels 23 from spellbinders and also spellbinders edgeabilities classic scallops.
for the sentiment I used JustRite Ornate Happiness Squares and clear embossing powders over a versacolour ink called imperial purple.
all the dies and stamps I use are available from
thank you for stopping by.
