The frame has been cut using the My Favorite Things Die-namics Stitched Square Frames dies.

Spectrum Noir Sparkle Butterfly Birthday Card

Good morning all.  Hope you are well today.
Just sharing a card that I made for my friends birthday this week.   I decided to have a bit of a play with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter Pen Sets.


For the background I have used Emerald Green, Blue Topaz and Inspired Violet Spectrum Noir Sparkle glitter pens from the Spring Summer set.   I scribbled the colours onto my glass mat, spritzed with water and pressed the card into the ink mix to give a really soft pretty effect.

The butterfly stamp is a magazine freebie and this has been stamped with archival ink.
I have used the same three Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens to add a tiny bit of colour and have then blended this out using one of the crystal clear pens.  These have been cut out using the matching die.  The photos don't show how sparkly the butterflies actually are.

The greeting is from my stash stamped with versamark ink and heat embossed using white embossing power.   I've had the stamp for ages, it's unmounted rubber and I forgot to label it so not sure what the make is.

Just a few sequins added to finish off the card.


Thanks for stopping by, have a great day and I'll see you soon.

Crafty Calendar January Challenge - Something New

Good morning all.  Happy New Year. Have you made any new year resolutions for 2017?  One of mine it to get through all the craft kits and projects that I've got before taking on or buying any more so we'll see how long it takes before I break that one.

It's the first Saturday in January so we have a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar and because it's the start of a new year our theme this month is
'Something New'

For this months theme I have made a new baby card and I have used:

Bugaboo Stamps 'Baby Cow Rattle' digital stamp
coloured with copics.
I did add a couple of extra cow markings to the image using one of the Copic Multiliner pens that I had for Christmas, because I just wanted a bit more black on the image.

For the background I have used the My Favorite Things Cow Background stamp
and Razzle Berry Hybrid ink pad.

The greeting is a pre printed one that I had in my stash.
