Hi! It's Mona here today with a card to share featuring a beautiful layered Powell Butterfly.

To create this card, I made a layered Powell Butterfly which I then embellished with a layered metallic Stitched Bloom using the smallest of the three Stitched Bloom Trio dies. I added trimming that was made using two of the three pretty Eyelet Stitches dies.  I completed the card with a metallic Scribble Hello sentiment.


Thanks so much for stopping by!

Butterfly Gift Card Holder Tags
by Olga Direktorenko

There comes a day in every craftsperson's life when you realize you've got to do something with all those scraps you have, but you are terrified by the thought of throwing them away. So today is this kind of day to me!

I have chosen to make some tags to utilize some of the card stock scraps. The tag pockets are just the right size to put a gift card into.

Here are some photos of the tags as well as the VIDEO TUTORIAL on how to make them:





Thank you for visiting today!

Golden Leaves
by Olga Direktorenko

Hi crafty friends, 

The fall is just starting so let's welcome the season with a gold leaf card! 

I have chosen some lacy dies to make it look light and airy and also did some stamping with real leaves to get skeleton imprints. 

I am including a VIDEO TUTORIAL where I show the whole process.







Thanks so much for visiting today and have a very happy fall!

Floral Lattice

I am addicted to lattices and love to use them on my cards so I just couldn't pass by the beautiful Mod Flower Background die. I have chosen cool grays and blues for this card as the hot summer makes me long for something icy and refreshing.

Blog Blitz Featuring Kitty Cat Face

Hi crafters and welcome to another day of Blog Blitz! 

Today I am introducing the new Kitty Cat Face die. What makes it different is that it cuts a negative space. Let's see how we can use this feature!

[1245] DIES- Kitty Cat Face

I've made a Halloween shaker card with the cat face in the center. It can also be used as a greeting card for a black cat owner (I'm sure everyone knows at least one black cat owner). 



As the negative image actually lets the light through it will be great for a candle sleeve also:


Please watch the video tutorial to find out how to make:

1. A non-acetate shaker card

2. Vintage vellum 3d hydrangea blooms

3. A SAFE paper candle sleeve


For a chance to WIN the Kitty Cat Face die please leave a comment to this post.

Delicate Foliage

 I have been so much amazed by the beauty of Poppystamps intricate foliage dies that I have combined some of them in one card together with the homemade roses.

I am including a beginning to end VIDEO TUTORIAL where I showcase all the techniques and materials as well as the precise measurements for the layers.

Cream & Gold

 Hi crafters, Olga here.

For today's card I have chosen a cream & gold color scheme. The design part was easy as the fabulous Poppy frame dies and an MB stencil did the job for me - all I had to do is cut the right size layers for them.

To watch the entire process please scroll down for the VIDEO TUTORIAL. You will also find all the necessary measurements there. 





Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

Happy Birthday

Welcome everyone!  Sue here today with a card using metal sheets and alcohol inks with the new Art Deco Roses die.

Art Deco Roses

I used copper metal sheets (you can use any type of metal) and inked it up with alcohol inks, making sure to leave some of the copper showing through.  

Metal Card Supplies

Then I sent it through my Vagabond, cutting four of the corner rose pieces and adhering it to embossed card stock.  Use strong adhesive for this (Ranger Multi Medium in matte) as the metal is heavier than paper.

Rose Closeup

I love the variegated colours and metal shine on this delicate die, so very pretty.

Deco Roses Birthday

I finished off by adding the large Fancy Happy Birthday sentiment to the centre of the card.

Just a reminder that we have a Feminine Challenge going on right now.  Please stop by here to check out all the details.

Thanks for visiting with me today!
