A days play :D

******Do you fancy a crafty get away? I am arranging one for October this year and there are still spaces. Click HERE for details******

I know I am sorry it is more stampin' Up creations but I just LOVE them at the moment. I went and saw my Mum today to try and do some serious crafting. Well that didn't quite work out and we got nothing that we planned to do done but we did still have fun and at least I made a few things :D
So here are all 3 of my creations.....

First up is something that is quite different to my normal style. I have used what stampin' up call a 2 step set for all of these cards. This first one I have done using the Simply soft stamp set that I stamped the outline in soft suede then for the flowers (step 2) I used Wisteria Wonder and I also used the wiseria wonder ink to colour the paper that I layer the image on. Befor I layered it up I masked the image off and used the beautiful Very Vintage roller to add the detail behind the flower. All the rollering and the distressing I did in sahara sand.

I am entering this card for the following challenge:
Simply less is more - Masking

I went a bit brighter and more back to my normal style for the next 2 :D They are super cute 4x4 cards and I have used melon mambo and soft suede inks for everything again including colouring the paper I used to mat and layer. The stamps I used are from the flight of the butterfly set and butterfly prints. For the first one I also used a stampin' up border punch called scalloped trim border.

I am entering these cards for the following challenges:
Samuel Taylor - Butterflies
Frosted Design - Things with wings

If you would like to get any Stampin’ Up products I can order them for you and you only have to pay £1 for postage rather than the normal £4.95. If you want to have a look at the current Stampin' Up catalogues you can see them all HERE
