Some simple variations on one of Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamps P2-1673.

The big clean up of my craft room continues, so creating (and posting) has had to take a back seat for now. Strange how it’s impossible to contain messes to one specific area. You start in one spot, and it seems to create a domino effect throughout the house, so in the end, there is no room untouched. I didn’t think it would take this long…. will it ever be done!?!

The following three posts are from my archives, but thought them worth dusting off.

This dragonfly tag booklet was done using some of the dry embossing designs on the Crafter’s Companion, and Stamp-It Australia’s range of insect and wording stamps.

A butterfly birthday card for one of my girlfriends. It was a bit hard to take a photo of because of the reflection of the clear film.

I stamped Butterfly Moments 4691F onto clear film with white StazOn pad. Mounted it over dark blue card by means of the silver brad through the clock centre and some dabs of glue beneath the butterfly images. This was then matted onto a piece of silver shimmer card, then some blue vellum, which I torn around the edges of. The vellum had been embossed with a sizzix embossing folder. The damask pattern of the folder shows up white on the blue vellum. My backing card was blue mi-teintes. I stamped an extra large white butterfly on the clear film, which I cut out, folded the wings up on and glued down the body only above the identical image on card.
