Creative Elements !

Good Morning !
Such a dull November day here in Worcestershire, I am afraid we have finally given in and have the heating on at last ! You can't craft if you are cold !!!  I have been playing with the new  Paisley Petals DSP and took my colour inspiration from these. The colours are so soft and have a vintage chintz feel so I did one nature inspired quick card and a tatty vintage one !

This took 10 minutes to put together, simply edge some very vanilla card stock with a punched design and using the wildflower stamp from " Nature Walk " randomly stamp a meadow in lucky limeade, baja breeze and pear pizzaz inks. Then using blues and greens from your stampin' write markers, carefully ink up the lovely little butterfly from the new stamp set "Creative Elements ". The effect is worth the effort and takes seconds; the sentiment and twiddly are also from this very useful set (move over "Everything Eleanor ", just for a while !) 

Here is a close up of the butterflies, I use this really easy technique a lot and it works very well with flowers too.

It's so hard at this time of year to get good photos for my blog as I like to take them in natural light so the flash does't wash out the colours. I have had to work hard on the editing of this one, the card is baja breeze but appears brighter  here ! I enjoyed a bit of controlled vandalism when making this card; firstly filing the card edges to distress them and tearing, filing , inking and rolling the first edition speciality DSP which I have used to mat my other elements onto. The bird, eggs and bee are from "Nature Walk " and the sentiment is from "Style Beautiful ". The tiny tag punch and linen thread were just right for this card.
I'll be back with cards made from the Paisley Petals papers and more from "Creative Elements "; it is such a lovely stamp set.

Have a good day thanks for stopping by !

  1. Just lovely as usual, hope you are well x

  2. The butterflies look fabulous coloured in that way Jane. I'm crafting wearing fingerless gloves - my craft corner is several degrees colder than the rest of the house and I swear it's haunted! Vx

  3. Love the colours you have used for these cards Jane - simply gorgeous - Jacqueline xx
