More Orchids

There isn't  much crafting going on here as we are in the process of moving, from a rather roomy two bedroom unit into a very small two bedroom unit.
It's going to be a bit of a challenge fitting my sewing set up and my craft room into one small bedroom but it's a challenge I'm up for.

In the meantime here are two more orchid cards I made a while back, one for a sister in laws 60th birthday and the other for our youngest daughters birthday.

And then there was this gold fish slider card I made for our great grandsons 2nd birthday.

Butterflies and Orchids

I love seeing images of Butterflies and Orchids they are such a beautiful combination.
and so I made some orchids using the Marianne Design Collectible Orchids die set.
The butterflies are a rubber stamp from URBAN Stamps which I coloured with copics and cut them out by hand.

Also used was the Spellbinders Basic Lattice Die.
Marianne Design Craftables Circle Die.
Cheery Lynn Fanciful flourish and Sue Wilson Laurel Leaves.

I created the background for this one using the Spellbinders Lovin' Diamonds die as a stencil and spritzing on some Dylusions Ink spray, Calypso Teal.

Thanks for visiting....

Embossed Backgrounds

I've been playing with my embossing folders, I embossed them with white card stock and inked them with sponge daubers and Distress inks.
Here I have used them on cards I made for online friends birthdays.

Embossing folder I used is a 140x140 square one by Kaszazz called Leaves #5444
The Cheery Lynn Anastatia border strip hides where my extended embossing wasn't quite perfect.
The flowers I made with the Cottage Cutz 3D flower no 4.
The leaves are Sue Wilson Orange Blossom Leaves die.

The embossing folder I used on this card was the Craft Concepts Secret Garden 5x7
Border is the Martha Stewart Doily Lace Border punch.
Flowers I made using the Die-namics Royal Rose, for the purple and white ones I just rolled the two colours together.
Leaves are from the Sue Wilson Christmas Rose Die set.

I have some new cards to share with you, that I made for Kaaren at Fat Cats Card Corner.

The Marianne Collectable COL1411 Doggy was cut and coloured and raised up with dimensional tape.
Flowers - Sue Wilson Christmas Rose.
Sentiment - Cheery Lynn
Wink of Stella added to the fur on his outfit

I used the tutti Designs - Frilly flower Frame I cut the die twice in white card and coloured one set of the flowers and layered them on top. I added some ribbon and flat backed pearls from my stash.

 I have used the tutti Designs Bird Tapestry Die as well as the Tim Holtz piercing ruler and some ribbon and flat backed pearls from my stash.
Sentiment is from the Impression Obsession die set.
I cut the die once in white card then cut it again in thicker white card to give it a bit of dimension.
