Dragonflies and Stationer's Desk

 I am still trying to use up my pretty paper stash. These papers were oldies but goodies, from Prima Stationer's Desk. I just loved these papers which is why I have held on to them for so long.

My handmade Tattered flowers were inked with TH Aged Mahogany distress ink and then I added gold gilders paste to the edges.

I used a 12 by 12 for the card base then layered 4 by6 paper stacks along with some stickers and trims. 

The gold foil touches were done using Minc paint and a TH stencil. By using a stencil and paint I could get a more rustic look that is not as perfect as using my laser printer.

 I even added some paint to a wooden dragonfly and foiled it

Butterflies and fairies

The pictures for this card really do not do it justice. There are light pinks and greens with playful images of animals and fairies.

I layered papers & chipboard and added foil and sequins. 

You can see on the back there is another little fairy peaking out.
 I finished the card off with some of my handmade flowers inked with TH Tattered Rose.

pretty yellow


All my pretty scrapbook papers are piling up. I really need to start using them. I started with this older Authentque line called Classique Beauty. There are lots of cheerful yellows that stand out well against the darker colors in the line. 

I layered several papers and added a butterfly and yellow handmade flowers. Black beads were perfect for the butterfly;s body and the flower centers.

The bold colors were perfect for a get well card. I typed up the sentiment and cut it out along with a couple of mats with my new Silhouette Cameo 3. (having fun with it)

I love to add a little extra touch to the back also.
