Using Up Some Stash!

Hi friends, happy Saturday.....hope your weekend's gotten off to a good start.

I'm on a mission to use up some stash & first out of the box was a few bits I had left
from the Out of this World kit from Hunkydory....also on my desk was my new
set of Moonstone banner dies, also from Hunkydory.....put the two together and this
is what I came up with........
For the topper on the left I simply matted & layered the die cut elements and added some 
die cut stars. Still had a few bits left so I made some little embellishments......same
again.....some matting & layering & a few faux gems to finish.
And I still have a few bits left!

Thanks for calling......see you soon.

Using up some Stash!

Hello crafty friends, hope you're all well.
'Tis a bit blustery here in my little part of the Yorkshire Coast but we have
beautiful blue skies.......really does feel like Spring is in the air!
I feel a Spring clean coming on but first.......time to use up some stash then
hopefully I'll have less to clean lol!
The paper pad I used for this card was a freebie with a mag....such lovely papers,
I can't believe they've sat on a shelf unused for so long! A DL sized card, I simply
cut & layered the papers onto white card after I'd inked the edges then did the same
with the die cut butterflies. I added the Tim Holtz chit chat stickers then finished
with  a faux pearl in the centre of each butterfly.
Lots to do so I better get on......thanks for calling....see you soon

Don't forget, my FURRY FRIENDS challenge is here.

Own Your Dreams

Morning lovelies, hope you're all well, warm & safe.
I have a card to share today, I made this for my sons girlfriend & thankfully
she loved it! A 5x5 card base, I added a snippet of striped paper from the scrap
box. For the topper I simply 'swooshed' some ink, added a dream catcher cut
from holographic card then cut another so I could layer the feathers. I added a
word sticker from Tim Holtz then finished with a little gem. The dream catcher is
another unused die so I can join Wendy's challenge with this make too!
Rightio, that's me for today......lots to do so I'll thank you for popping in and
for any comments you might leave......have a lovely day!
