Sorry Your Gone

It's been awhile I know, but time can pass by so quick and already we are nearly at the end of this month.
The card I am showing you today is one I have not had to make too many of , but unfortunately this is one of those times.
My husbands cousin sadly passed alittle while ago and this is the card I made for her family.
My colour pallet was Basic Grey, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White.
On the scalloped circle I used the Crop-a-Dile eyelet end to give that embossed look. The boarder was done with the Scallop Trim Boarder and Trim Corner punch. It does take practise, but it's well worth it to get this end result.
I hope you liked the post today and will be on here again soon.
Stamps:Thanks For Caring
Ink: Basic Grey
Cardstock:Basic Grey, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White
DSP: Bella Rose (Retired)
Other: Crop-a-Dile, Pink Pirouette Ribbon (Retired), Scallop Trim Boarder Punch, Scallop Trim Corner Punch,

All in a flutter!!!

Welcome readers,
Today you have caught me at last with a card to post for my dear sister in law, but how bad am I that this card still has not been sent. She is also bad for this, but it does niggle at you when someone should have the card you spent time making.
On previous posts I have mentioned that this cute stamp(All A Flutter) will retire, but I may keep it for it is fun to watercolour.
Speaking of colour, I used So Saffron and Peach Parfait on the butterfly and as I watercoloured it I also used my aquapainter with the Shimmer Mist. I popped the butterfly inside the Treat Cup and backed it with the Botanical Gazette DSP(also retiring). On the Crumb Cake cardstock I just used the same stamp with Versamark for a background.
So I think I better get this sent or else I'll be kicking myself if I don't.What do you think?
Well until next time.

Say Goodbye

Hello readers.
Today I wanted to post a card that sadly the stamp used will be retiring at the end of this month.
That's right it is All A Flutter. I love this stamp as it turns out different each time use use it. I will show another card I made which is totally different way of using this stamp. So look out for that.
This main colours today is So Saffron and Peach Parfait. These are the watercolours I used on the butterfly as well as DSP.

I used watered down Champayne Mist Shimmer paint to give that subtle glimmer on the butterfly.
Sorry but the tiny brads are mine and thought they matched the card perfectly.
Hope you enjoyed looking today.
Until next time enjoy.
