Been a while but im back xxx

Phew a busy few weeks ive had trying to fit it all in has been a bit tough - but today i promised myself i would catch up with everything and so far so good so here is a few cards ive made recently

card 1 - Visible Image - made today with - small butterfly, Bronte border and Inspire (from Imagine,dream inspire seet)


I set myself a challenge over on my Kerrie's Kraft Korner group on facebook tha my next few cards would be made by only using the offcuts i have been collecting and keeping fro just in case (we all do this but do we ever get around to using them - not always lol)

For this card i have used

an offcut of centura pearl cardstock folded in half to make my own size cardblank
a few offcuts of dark brown mirror card (creata)
a few off cuts of white cardstock
and a piece of cereal box

ive also used Tim Holtz distress inks in Antique Linen and Tea Dye, clear embossing powder, Memento inkpad in Rich Cocoa, a die by Cheery Lynn, a multi flower punch by Creata and a few gems from my stash

I used the Bronte Border stamp to stamp repeatedly to make a back ground inked this first with antique linen all over then the tea dye around the edges - cut this a few mm smaller than the cardblank and matt&layered with the brown Mirror Board, - there were two offcut strips of this bronte border so i used one as a border matt&layered with brown mirror board again down one side of the card and the other strip i punched with one of the flowers in the Multi Flower Punch i inked all of these flowers and the strip with both colours of distress inks again.

I cut the die using another offcut of brown mirror board and attached this to the corner of the card and then added the small flowers which i had shaped with an embossing tool on a foam mat.

For the butterflys i first stamped them onto the back of a piece of cereal box, inked one with antique linen, one with tea dye and left one without, i used an embossing pen on one of the butterflys then dipped into embossing powder and heated til molten i repeated with all 3 butterflys, but them out and attached to the card with foam pads.

Lastly I stamped the Inspire moto onto another offcut of white card, inked over with antique linen, inked edges with Tea Dye trimmed samller then matt&layered with brown mirror board and attached to the card with foam pads.

i embellished the card with gold gems from my stash xx

I wanted to show that with a few beautiful stamps even a few offcuts can make a pretty card
