Thanks for stopping by,
Hello, I've been wanting to pair my photos with coordinating gel prints for awhile now. So while taking some photos of the fresh green growth around the yard I thought why not do some botanical prints of ferns that grow here.

Hello friends! Spring is on it's way and I'm celebrating with the beautiful new Butterfly Brilliance bundle from Stampin' Up! I find it fascinating that the gorgeous butterfly stamp images in this set are sketched from actual exotic butterflies from around the globe. Did I mention I love butterflies. :)
I made a DIY stamp from a scrap of craft foam torn to size to give it a more organic shape and a die from the Butterfly Wings dies.
I then used it to stamp with Just Jade on the small mandala paper from the Butterfly Bijou DSP giving another layer of visual dimension to the 3-1/4 x 2-1/4 tag. I completed the tag by adding Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and adhering with Stampin' Dimenionals.
For embellishment I cut the butterfly out of the Butterfly Bijou DSP with the coordinating Butterfly Wings die. Gave it some shaping and added Wink of Stella glitter pen to the wings. I adhered the body only of the butterfly leaving the wings free.
I used a sweet sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamped in Just Jade on White CS to match and also adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals. To complete I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels.
I leave you today with a photo of some Snow Drops, the first flowers of the year in my garden.
I wish you all a creative week with thanks for stopping by.
It's time for another Card Chain Challenge share. Today's card is on its way to Suze in New Zealand. I am finding this one a bit funny as I went with the polar bear / winter scene and it's headed to full on Summer at the opposite end of our world. Sending Suze a sampling of the winter weather we endured with the Polar vortex. ;)
Hello it's time for the December CCC this month I used every single suggestion from the list below. I first tried thinking of how I could fit all the criteria into a Christmas Card but since I was stumped I decided to just do an any day card. It was a lot of fun and I think I'll try it again with some Christmas colours and images. If you would like to check out the challenge for yourself please go here. The supplies I used are from Stampin Up!.
Hello and welcome to another Card Chain Challenge share. For this one I tried to use as many of the options as possible.
I separated the Autumn of this retired Quietfire Design stamp used it on the outside as a stand alone sentiment and placed the remainder of the quote on the inside. I had fun doing an Iris fold inside, actually behind the maple leaf. This is a great way to use up all those little bits of scrapbooking paper as the strips are only 1/2" wide.
Hello and welcome, I'm having a lot of fun mono printing with my gel plate these days. One of the things I enjoy is the unpredictability...
