I’m sure it’s wine o’clock somewhere in the world. Cheers and happy creating!


stamps: Time in Paris 4477E and Classy Lady 4251E both by Stamp-it

I made puddles of Tumbled Glass and Victorian Velvet Distress Stains on my teflon mat, then laid white card over. Stamp Paris clock in black ink. Apply fine line of tacky glue to circumference of clock. Set aside to dry, then lay silver Fab Foil over.

Stamp lady in black Archival ink onto scrap of white card. I used White Opal Liquid Pearls on her dress, applied with a paintbrush. I coloured her jewellery in with a blue texter, then added dots of Glossy Accents over. Red texter on lips and nails. Stardust Stickles for champagne bubbles. Sponged sepia ink around hair. When dry, cut her out, tearing across bottom of dress. Glue into position at right of clock stamp.

Stamp clock stamp again onto scrap of white card. Colour Eiffel tower with Victorian Velvet ink and white pencil. Apply tacky glue to swirl across base. Set aside to dry, then lay silver Fab Foil over swirls. Cut out tower and swirls only and glue over image on main card.

Cut card to size, tearing across bottom edge. Sponge all sides with sepia ink. Matt onto silver foil card which is slightly shorter to allow room for lace to be attached at bottom. Loosely fold some muslin behind and attach onto aqua card, then onto folded white backing card.


Blue Butterfly

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.
