A vibrant Butterfly and new Tattered Lace



Good morning Peeps, hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

Today over at Chocolate Baroque we are sharing some more inspiration for quick and easy fifteen minute cards. Please do pop over to the DT blog here and see what my team mates have come up with to inspire you and also you can check out what stamps I used on my creations.

I also have some shares of cards I made for this evenings new Tattered Lace releases which include both dies and stamp sets on Create and Craft TV, I really had fun creating with these as it allowed me to make some lovely inky backgrounds.





The concept behind these dies is that the design stays within the cardstock, on some I created backgrounds with mica sprays and paints, on some such as the birds I lightly penciled the pattern through the apertures and then coloured with distress crayons and quite like how they turned out with the die cut cardstock laid over the top.






Many thanks for popping in today, hope you all have a good Tuesday.

Beautiful cards Brenda. The butterfly stamp is to die for and the new range from TL looks very exciting. I did. Promise myself no more crafty spending but it is so difficult to sit on my hands sometimes.
Take care

Rainey's Craft Room said...

Wow! All are fabulous Brenda. I don't think I've ever managed a card in fifteen minutes - too much faffing around and decision making going on, I just don't seem to have a definitive picture in my head when I start.
I love all the cut-out ones with the inky background showing through, a very effective technique.
