White Baby Card (LOTV All Our Dreams)

Image
Hello!
Happy Friday! Hope it's been a good week for you!
I've attempted another White on White card! How many ways are there to make a white background using only white card and no embossing tools? My last one I used liquid pearls and this time I had a lightbulb moment and punched lots of hearts from white card and stuck them down! 
Had very painful hands after all the punching and took ages to stick them all down though!! Lol



I used:
LOTV All our dreams stamp Promarkers Woodware butterfly punches Hobbycraft heart punch WOC Lace Liquid pearls in the corners and on the butterflies Scalloped scissors and heart pearls



Thanks for looking :-)
Have a lovely weekend!

Butterflies + B is for Brads

Image
Hi everyone!
Hope it's been a good week for you!
It's been FAR too long since I fluttered by Mrs A's butterfly challenge which is currently Butterflies + B for brads SO... Mum organises my stash as I'm not mobile, but she's worse than me and loses everything! She dug around for half hour and only found basic gold stationary brads, so I got the nail varnish out again!!
Spent quite a while colouring this butterfly, I hope it shows!



I used:
Butterfly - Little Claire freedom stamp set Promarkers & flexmarkers  Whimsy ticket sentiment stamp
LOTV papers Blue - beach bliss Purple - bonnets and bowties
Spot ribbon - Crafty Ribbons Aqua blooms - WOC Woodware butterfly punches & a rounded corner punch
Finished with mint green liquid pearl dots around the circle, and of course the brad in the centre of the flower



I love adding butterflies to cards but It's not often I use a butterfly as the main focus, this ones just for you Mrs A :-) xx
Have a nice weekend everyone!!
