Today I've used a pretty heart die. I've used it flat on another card I made, but here I've covered all the flowers in the die with lots of different die cut flowers, infilled the leaves with glitter glue and of course glittered the flowers too.
Today's card features an X cut die I haven't used before.
The words are in the main die but also come as a separate die, which is great for using the sentiment on its own. I've cut it out again in purple glitter and overlaid on top. The same purple has been used for the corner accents. Lots of gems in the centre of the flowers.
When it comes to paper, I must admit I have a weak spot for anything floral or pastel. I always look forward to the new First Edition paper pads.
When the new Wild Flower pad came out, I wasn't immediately drawn to it. However, I succumbed recently and I surprised myself because the bold patterns and bright splodges and spots etc are actually growing on me!
I love butterflies and the one on today's card is I think my favourite so far. I've wanted to do this pale colour combo for a while and was inspired by a design on the Tonic Blog. I've used some lovely Crafters Comp. pearlescent cardstock which gives it a subtle sheen.

A little bit (well quite a bit!) of glitz and sparkle today in my favourite colour combo. I fell in love with this stamp and knew that I had to have it in vellum. Lots of other ideas buzzing around in my head though, so watch this space!

Today's selection of cards is a continuation of my quest to use up odd toppers and also make a dint in my (big) box of flowers.
The papers are a combo of First Edition and Craft Sensations. The die cut frames are Sue Wilson Atlantic Ocean, Swirly Square and Sweet Dixie Embroidery Frame , some Sue Wilson leaves and some MB butterflies.
Lots of gems, sequins and of course flowers.
Thank you for dropping in and any comments you leave - much appreciated.
For today's card, I've used some beautiful Craft Sensations paper. I love this pad and have used it for quite a few cards. It has lovely florals and shades of pink and green. I've picked out the dark red in the flowers with my plain colour.

A wedding card today. I was looking at the new X Cut releases for this month and saw a die which was strikingly similar to the one I've used on my card.
Phew! Don't need to think about buying that one if I've already got something very similar!!

For today's card, I've used one of my favourite baby sentiment stamps from Woodware. Baby boys are catered for too (!) changing the wording to 'Prince' and they are little royalty aren't they? Being waited on hand and foot! Worth it though.
