Upright Z Fold

The Don and Daisy latest challenge is an unusual upright Z fold. The tricky bit is to finding a way to prop it open. I had to move the birdhouse down slightly because it was unstable.


I stamped Don directly onto the paper. The birdhouse was secured with a large apple brad. MD dies used LR0157 lavender, LR0192 leaves, LR0205 fence, LR0209 tulips
 and CR1291 birdhouse. I added a butterfly sticker and printed a quote by Anne Frank which I stuck on chipboard.



Hope this has made you smile.

Pansies and butterflies

I've just started following the Butterfly Challenge blog and the challenge this week is Flowers, the same as Marianne's Design Divas. So here is Daisy picking crocuses and I've used MD pansy die CR1305 in the top right corner with some punched leaves.



The background paper has tiny butterflies and on top of that some floral paper.
Other MD dies used are LR0116 swirls, LR0143 corner die and LR0201 Anja border die. Finished with 2 die cut butterflies.

By the Sea

It's not looking very summery at the moment but hopefully the sun will be back next week. I'm looking forward to our next trip to Cornwall to visit my daughter. I did a little watercolour sketch of St Ives Cornwall before stamping Daisy whom I coloured with Spectrum Noir, hopefully to stand out from the background.





I used Marianne Design dies LR0199 and LR0230 for the boat and shells and LR0142 for the flowers. The centres for the flowers are flower soft. The tiny butterfly is from MD die LR0261 and the little corner die I think was a freebie with a magazine.

Shabby Chic

I love this style though not my normal type of card and not easy to get the right look.
There are some very talented people out there who are much better at this.

To do this I tore the lovely hummingbird paper diagonally and tucked another strip  of paper and some lace underneath. I inked the edges of the papers with aged mahogany distressed ink.
I used Marianne Dies Anja corner in pink Centura Pearl plus some bought and punched  flowers and leaves and swirls made with MD dies LR0116, LR0156 and LR0157. I used the small rectangle from MD die CR1242 to frame the sentiment.
2 butterflies and pink gems to finish.
