Butterfly Basics

This is my first play with this stamp set Butterfly Basics. I actually cased this from Karen B Barber. I am more into clear lines rather abstract but I liked this card and thought I'd give it a  go. I used the Blendabilities to colour in the flowers and the leaves.The butterfly is cut out using thinlit dies with.
Butterfly Basics is in the new occasions catalogue and is a lovely set that goes with the Butterfly thinlits.

Balloon bash meets Blendies

This is an interesting card that I partly cased from Angela Lorenz. You can see her card here.
This card has been stamped with Balloon Bash in Versamark then embossed with white embossing powder.
The interesting part is how the colour comes on to the image.
Blendabilities are the colouring tools.Great isn't it?

The Blendabilities can be  obtained free as part of the Sale-a-bration promotion. Spend $110 and you can get one packet of colours for free. Also in the new occasions catalogue their are 4 new colours added to the range. These colours are lighter colours from the Subtles family.

A calm sea.....masculine card

Here is another card that uses paper from the adventure Bound designer paper stack. It goes well with the sentiment from the Adventure Awaits stamp set.
I had some of the sea paper left over so made this card that I cased from Linda Higgins seen here.
Have just changed it slightly, have used gold ribbon instead of a thinner ribbon.
