Have wings - will fly.....

.... is the title of the current challenge at CuttlebugMania

My card's top layer was cut out with my stitched rectangle die, and then embossed in the cuttlebug with Butterfly Kisses folder from Craft Concepts
I used the deboss side and coloured them with a Promarker. I also cut my butterfly with my CB layered it, and added Wink of Stella to the top wings

Favourite blue

 Hi everyone.
I have had fun making this card which is called a 'z' fold. I used a black base, which I scored in 2 places with my ScorPal and then a pretty blue dp (one of my favourites) layered onto white for 2 of the panels. The third panel is white with sponged blue edges, and a message stamped. The narrow strip, also scored in 2 places, has layered blue flowers on the first section and the next 2 were stamped, with the flower coloured to match.

Vintage car!

Hi everyone.
Today's card was inspired by a tutorial on StampTV, for making woodgrain backgrounds, and also the lovely mood board at TaylorMade4U

I used a woodgrain embossing folder and swiped it with various shades of brown and black ink. I trimmed it and layered onto some dark green, and then onto my off-white card base. I layered a rectangle of a dp onto cream, and also double layered my image. Sorry I don't have the brand of this stamp, I hope someone may know. I then added the 'journey' message, as I thought it was most suitable for this image. I will enter this at TaylorMade4U,

and also Mixed Media #36 for 'put a stamp on it'

Allsorts for embossing (my background is dry embossed)

Thanks for visiting and have a great week

Evening all!

I hope I am in time for this challenge at Stamplorations. I have used DI to make my central circle, and coloured the butterfly as well. Because I have added glitter it has changed the colour in the scan

'stamps and wings'

Hi everyone, thanks for calling.

Today's card features a stamp from the Stamplorations set 'Big Bloom Factory' I used my Kaleidacolour 'riviera' ink pad, to stamp the 2 tone flowers, and was pleased how it turned out. The bird is from a set by Aladine 'Clear Oiseaux' stamped onto a snippet and edged with blueprint sketch di. I have followed the sketch for Stamplorations April challenge, and would also like to enter in the Things with wings linky party
Because I have used snippets, I will also enter this at Pixies Crafty Workshop and Allsorts where it is 'B for ..... ( I have blue, blooms, a bird and borders)

Hi everyone.

I have had this lovely wee stamp from CI for quite a while, and thought the bird singing was springlike!
I have embossed the background with my cuttlebug, and also used it to cut the stitched circle. I sponged both with peacock feather di. I also used copics to colour my image.
