Cuttlebug Butterfly and Nestabilities

I posted earlier today to show your how everyday things give me inspiration, the colour of the rose gave me the start of this card.
I used the Cuttlebug cut and emboss butterfly the nestabilities ovals and a pretty flourish stamp by Papertrey Ink.
Not a bit of ribbon to be seen.

The cuttlebug butterfly, pearls were added to form the body.

A close up shot showing the flourish heat embossed with with powder.

The Beauty of a Rose

I find that many things that surround me inspire me to be creative so I thought I would share something with you all.
I bought some flowers last week and they were headed for the refuse bin this week and when I turned the vase this little rose was still quite beautiful I admire the make up of nature, the texture of each petal has a velvety appearance that make you want to touch it.
It got me started on thinking how clever this rose was to have such a beautiful bloom and yet such a prickly stem to protect it's growth.

Flourish Overlay

I've fussed around so much with this card to try to get a good picture that I've just give up and added this one to show you all.
The flourish was stamped on acetate before adding to the base card, it was stamped with white stazon ink.
The hearts were cut with the Nestabilities dies the I heat embossed a heart stamp onto the Aqua coloured heart with white embossing powder and added the hearts to the card using foam pads.
To finish the card I added punched flowers and leaves, a few pearls and a sheer ribbon.

The competition will close Midnight Sunday 26th April 2009

Below is some of the cards I have made with the Stamp set

Flourshed Gold on White

I used a flourish stamp wheel by Stamping Up and white embossing powder on the base card you can just about see it on the right of the image under the tied bow this really pops and gives the card a wonderful detail.
The main stamp by Impression Obsession was heat embossed with glod detail powder then mounted on top of gold mirri card then added to the card after tying a sheer gold ribbon around the middle of the card.

Floral Stamp

One of my own stamp sets was used to create this card, I made another card in monotone a while back using the same stamp set click here to see it.
I used the Birthday Wishes down the side of the base card and staped the flower on the nestabilities oval shapes then using the leaves from the set stamped them at the corners os the card and used a pretty matching ribbon to finish the card.

Ollyfant Little Piggy

Ollyfants on the farm range stamps coloured with Copic markers, I couldn't resist printing a quote from the This little Piggy nursery rhyme onto the base card I over layered two more papers onto the base card after punching a fancy edge then tying a ribbon around them.
Finishing with a white blossom in the corner.

Ollyfant playing with Kitty

Another image from the Ollyfant stamp range I love this little man playing with the kitty so I thought I'd practice the lilac colours, I found this one quite easy by adding the deepest purple card stock as a base card again coloured with the Copic pens.

Ollyfant Bathing Beauty

This is another stamp from the Ollyfant stamp sets all coloured with Copic Markers, I've had some of these markers for a while but never really used them so they were dusted off and dragged out of the draw and a few more colour bought to add to my collection and I set too.
Blending with copics takes practice so if you are thinking of giving them a whirl be prepared to make mistakes.
The white base card was embossed with the Stylised flowers Cuttlebug folder and the other papers added were punched with border punches from Kreaxions and EK Success.

The card, New Stamps bought from Imag-e-nation they are Ollyfants I loved them so much I bought 7 sets very reasonable as the set this image is from has 6 stamps including boy, girl, bench, cat, grasshopper and a tree not yet on his website but I'm sure if you bugged him enough he'd put them on (wink) I have been promised that they will be on by next week.
a few pretty Basic Grey papers some flowersoft from Joanna Sheens site crochet flowers and a bit of love.

The darling little stamp, inked with versafine and watercoloured

Attention to detail, little crochet flowers they may not be perfect but I made them all by myself and not bad for a finger knitter girl! Ha Ha
