Just, Thank You! (Sale-A-Bration)

Hello!
I appear to have gained a couple of new followers over the last few days, so I would like to say a big hello and welcome!

Ok this card, as the title suggests, is a very simple Thank You card. And it is a thank you to all you wonderful followers! :)


I have used some of the gorgeous Sale-A-Bration Sycamore Street paper, and a retired Stamp...such a shame it got retired! This is the first time I have used it actually, mainly because it is retired. I got it during the last 'sell off'.


I stamped in Pool Party and Island Indigo SU markers. I finished with a couple of tiny pearls.

Remembering Mum #2

Good evening!
Here is another card I made yesterday at Jen's...another Remembrance card.

Again, the sentiment is computer generated. Actually, I printed it in the wrong place for my first card so I made another card with it!

Supplies used on this card
Embossing Folder - Lacy Brocade
Ink (Markers) - Crumb Cake, Perfect Plum, Raspberry Ripple
Stamps - Precious Butterflies

Remembering Mum #1

Good evening!
I have had a lovely afternoon crafting with Jen, and here is one of the cards I have made. The theme was an idea requested by a friend of mine as she struggles to find cards to place on her parent's graves at special times of the year. So this one is for her Mum for Mother's Day...


I coloured the Flowering Flourishes stamp with my Stampin' Write Markers before stamping, giving a very subtle effect, which is just what I was looking for with this card. I mounted the panel onto Wisteria Wonder card. The sentiment is computer generated.


I finished with a few of the tiny butterflies from Embosslits Beautiful Wings.

Supplies used on this card
Cardstock - Whisper White
Inks (Markers) - Certainly Celery, Perfect Plum, Wisteria Wonder
Stamps - Flowering Flourishes
Ribbon - Ruffled Edge Wisteria Wonder

Less Is More - Shrunken Butterflies!

Good morning!
Wow we got alot of snow in a very short space of time yesterday! I think this is where my obsession for a lot of white space is coming from just now lol!

This morning over at Less is More, the challenge is a sketch challenge, and here is what I made...


On Thursday night, Jen came round for a little crafting, and we were playing with stamping on Shrink Plastic. I made the gorgeous tiny little butterflies but wasn't sure what to do with them...then I saw this morning's sketch and it all kind of came together really quickly! 

The Sketch


close up of the butterflies

I really love these butterflies...they look so dainty! I think I will be doing this a lot in the future! One tip though, these work better if you stamp them using the markers...the pads seem to blur the image when it's shrunk. 
Also, because I used water based ink, I found I couldn't use liquid glue so I have used glue dots, which you can kind of see a discolouration on the close up photo, but not in real life!

Supplies needed for this card
Cardstock - Whisper White
Stamps - Papillon Pot Pourri, Happiest Birthday Wishes
Ink (markers) - Rich Razzleberry
DP - Sycamore Street (Sale-A-Bration)
Punch - Elegant Butterfly
EF - Honeycomb

White Butterflies!

Hi again!
Yup...2 posts in one afternoon! Well the last card I made really got me thinking about the Flutterby Wednesday challenge this week which is All White, so I decided to make another card!


I have used the Embosslits Beautiful Wings folder again, the Lacy Brocade EF, and the stamp is part of the Sale-A-Bration Bloomin' Marvellous set.

A closer look

I have used the layout at CAS(E) This Sketch to build my card, and I finished with a few tiny pearls from my stash. 

I have also made this card with the Less Is More challenge in mind, which is Friendship. I am very late with it this week as I had my best friends visiting this weekend from Holland, Cambridge, Preston, Rochdale and t'other side of Bolton! They know how much they mean to me, but this is dedicated to them anyway...love you girls! :)

If you would like to get your hands on any of the gorgeous products I have used here, or any others, please contact me on 07915 698577 or email at lizyshouseofcards@mail.com

Thanks for popping by!




Butterflies in White

Good afternoon!
Wow! We're all in white here in Bolton today! I have even managed to get some lovely pictures in our local park :) I am officially on my day off today, but I'm calling a Snow Day nonetheless! 

Ok so with all this white around, it inspired me for this next card I think!

Now I have followed this CASE challenge at Inkspirational


Isn't it a fabby layout?? I couldn't resist having a go myself!
Another view

I have used one of the first Stampin' Up! items I ever bought...the Embosslits Beautiful Wings folder. I love these little butterflies...I always forget I have them!
I have also used some of the Sale-A-Bration designer paper and the new Needlepoint Embossing folders...I love new stuff! ;)

The Sale-A-Bration and NEW Spring/Summer catalogue are available to order from very soon, so I could be ordering them for you, delivered right to your door! 
Please do contact me on 07915 698577 or email me at lizyshouseofcards@mail.com so you don't miss out!

Time for a hot chocolate I think!
Bye for now!
