Easel Wreath Card Tutorial and Giveaway x

 Happy Friday you lovely lot

I hope you are all well and been having a great week so far? It's been a busy week here with work and editing this tutorial but I did find time for a wee lunch date with my Mum. It was lovely just to get away with it and have a good laugh plus find a nice Harry Potter themed cafe in Glasgow that did the most fab cocktails

Today I'm sharing the latest card Tutorial, a fab wee Easel Wreath Card. Bow I have to admit I didn't come up with this and the lovely Caroline was the one to inspire me to create it. Check here makes and beautiful creations here

I just loved the lush Carta Bella papers here with the lovely coral die-cut flowers and Butterfly plus all the added glitter to make it stand out
Here's another colour way using the same products

Even with the same dies the card looks so different in this colour way, the different papers from an old DCWV Bundle just make it so bright and summery! Which one is your favourite?

8x8 Butterfly Card Tutorial x

Hello lovelies and welcome back to my blog

Hope everyone is well? Have you been keeping busy and finding time to craft? What have you making? Me?? I've been working away in the background on some special tutorials, something made especially for yous. Also I'm working away on some fun Magazine pieces, lets just say some fun girly buts will be coming in a few months

Today I wanted to share a tutorial or the Butterfly card I created for my Mum's Birthday. I had so much love on it and when I got a few requested to create a tutorial knew I couldn't say no.

In the video I show you have I made this lush pink jewelled tones card using all the same materials I used for my Mums card. I also created a green version before the tutorial to show in the video

You can see even tho I've used all the same material the card looks different but still 'pops' no matter the colour way! I think the green is my favourite, what about you?? Could you imagine this in all white??? Or even in all the colours of the rainbow??

I used the Craft Consortium Over the Rainbow Papers of both cards, teaming with glitter and Ventura Pearl card from my stash. The top layers on the flowers and Butterfly is embossed and inked Vellum. gives a 'porcelain' look my hubby says

Remember you can fin all the material details below and the video is over on my YouTube. Please give it a watch and listen at the end for a little upcoming SURPRISE

Until next time
Happy Crafting everyone
