Lavinia Poppy Stamps, A Brayer and A Shapeabilities Butterfly

Lovely Lavinia Stamps

Hello, a lovely day today with the weekend to follow.

My best crafty mate, Karen, is coming over to spend the day with me tomorrow, great stuff.... we will gossip, eat a nice lunch ( I hope) and make cards....... bliss!

 Thank you for all the lovely comments that were left on my previous post.... I was surprised at the interest shown in the card and very pleased as I also picked up some new followers !
Holes made with a Crop A Dile Big Bite!

Now, as you are aware, that card was all White! This one is a bit more colourful, this is how I made it .

I blended a background using my Speedball Brayer and two Adirondack Inks, Red Pepper and Sunshine Yellow.

Stamped the Poppies, two different stamp sets, both from Lavinia Stamps with Black Versafine Ink then using my 'Big-Bite' I made a few holes in the background paper and layered it over Gold Card so you can see the Gold underneath ( great trick, I use this a lot ....cos it's cheap but attractive!)
Inside of the card decorated to match the front

Mat and layer on Red and finally a Black Card Blank ... add a few Spellbinders Shapeabilities Butterflies, along with a sweet wooden Ladybird from my stash .... job done.

I also decorated the inside to match the front of the card.

Thanks for popping by my blog today .. any questions please leave a comment or email

Have a great weekend.

Guess who is a very happy little crafter?
