October Classes: Emboss Resist Christmas Card and Gift Box
Ribbon Week: Snowflake Christmas Card

Ribbon Week: Butterfly Card

Gave my camera a workout today so I've got lots of cards to share this week.  I thought I'd show you a few ways I've used the new In Colour ribbon.  (Get a free roll this month with each $60 of products purchased.) 


Base card is Elegant Eggplant stamped with the beautiful swirl from Everything Eleanor (pg 112)

The feature panel is Naturals White (pg 160) embossed with the Lacy Brocade embossing folder (Holiday pg 6.)

The squares are punched with the Postage Stamp punch (pg 182) and feature the Papillon Potpourri stamps - pg 115 (and coordinating Elegant Butterfly Punch pg 184.)  Colours are Old Olive and Raspberry Ripple.  Some pearls to give our butterfly a nice finishing touch.


If you've been visiting my blog for a while you'll know that I use this card layout heaps.  Quite a handy one - you just need some sort of square punch and can make use of offcuts and small scraps.  I'll be back tomorrow with a snowflake Christmas version. 

If you'd like to gather a group of friends to make this card (or another design), I've got a space on the calendar the last weekend in November for a card party.  Just get in touch to book your date. 

Before I duck off today I thought I'd share this cartoon my son (6) Jack drew last week to go with a birthday letter for his poppy (my dad.) 


That's me on the couch giving directions, "Write a letter to Poppy."  And Jack and his big sister Hannah replying  "OK"    "OK"

I think I'll title it  "Bossy Mummy".   :-) 

Happy stamping (or bossing!)

Cheers, Sue
