Today my daughter turns 19, not long now before she's not a teenager anymore and ceases to know everything!
I made this card while I was demonstrating at the Sandown craft show in January and as Alice loves butterflies, just like her grandma, I knew it would be perfect for her birthday.
The butterflies are stamped using the rock and roll technique and the mixed bunch stamp set. I punched them out with the matching punch and then removed two of the petals and 3d mounted them to make the butterfly wings. The background has been embossed with stripes.

This is the last card from last months card club and was inspired by a card I saw online, again I'm sorry I can't credit the person who designed it as I forgot to take note.
It seemed to evolve as it went on; the butterflies are created from the mixed bunch flower stamps, punched and then two petals removed. Initially that is how they remained but then at card club we came up with the idea of using the discarded petals/wings to create a more 3d effect. The two colours are achieved using the rock and roll technique, inking the stamp first in daffodil yellow colour and then rolling the edges of the stamp in pool party ink. A piece of twine tied around created the body and antenna of the butterfly.
The base card has been embossed with the striped embossing folder and some matching pool party ruffled ribbon tied around to finish.

Another pretty bow taught to me by Amanda. However this one isn't really a bow it just looks like one and the beauty of this one is that it lies so flat that it will easily go through the post, alternatively you could add lots of extra layers and colours to it and really go to town.
The stamped image is using the Vintage Vogue flowers and I used the rock and roll technique to get the two colours. First I inked up my stamp with the paler pretty in pink colour and then carefully rolled the edges of the stamp on the rose red ink pad so that colour was only added to the edge.

Yay!! A return to razzleberry for me today :) I made this card for my friends birthday last week. She moved away a couple of years ago so I was delighted when she decided to hold a birthday bash in her old stomping ground.
So, razzleberry card, striped grosgrain ribbon and ink. The stamps are from one of the new hostess sets Posy Punch and I used the rock and roll technique to give the flowers a lighter pinker centre then used the big flower punch to cut them out easily.
