Altenew Painted Butterflies.

When the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine asked if I wanted to be part of a Stamper’s Challenge that involved me playing with Altenew’s Painted Butterflies I couldn’t reply ‘Yes’ quick enough lol.  And I wasn’t disappointed,  I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed getting all inky with these stamps, they are Brilliant!

Simple Embossing for AEIOU!

Keeping it real simple for this month’s entry to Avery Elle’s Embossing challenge, in fact it’s just a little difficult to see the embossed part of my card, but it’s those fabulous double pierced rectangles that I can’t get enough of and I used one of these to create a subtle border for my scene.

Video : Embossed Panel Card!

Another sympathy card for the stash (phew) and today another really easy technique, using up some scraps and embossing some sweet flowers…  ticks all the boxes!  I filmed as I created so you can watch the process.

You can see my video here or Watch it at Youtube.

Other Supplies:  Cardstock – American Crafts – Powder.  I’m thinking the green cardstock is a Bazzill one and called Parakeet…   do you know?  I did know that I can’t get it here and it makes me sad, it’s one of my fave colours and totally hoarded.

Video : Celebrating Altenew’s 1st Video Challenge!

Gotta say that I fought with this card to the end, but had so much fun that I can’t complain.  These Painted Butterflies are one of my most fave sets from Altenew that I couldn’t resist using them for their First Video Challenge….  Also I’m using those frosted sheets yet again….

One Die…. Four Ways!

I have a really quick publication share tonight as I’m  totally enjoying my holidays and haven’t even had a chance to make any cards yet! I also just got back from a visit to my brother and SIL  in Gladstone (only a 8 hour drive away) but it was so nice to see them, we ate way too much they have the best Indian restaurant across the road and to be honest it’s worth the drive lol.

So I thought I would share this publication for The Australian Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercraft magazine where I was asked to use one die… four ways and this is what I came up with using some fab MFT products (my apologies in advance for the photo heavy post).
