Posy Trio Teddies

Brrrrrr  - what a cold and miserable day! So just to lighten things up, here's a cute trio of teddies courtesy of Lili of the Valley! They stamped beautifully and I used Promarkers to colour them in. I matted them up onto a pale pinky-lilac spotty backing paper, using plain and scalloped circles, a flower plus a small length of ribbon left over from another project and there's my version of clean and simple.

I used:

LOTV -Posy Trio stamp (ST326)
Spellbinders Plain and Scalloped Circles
Dovecraft DP
Ribbon & Flower from stash

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenge:

Thanks for looking!

New Year and Butterflies Everywhere

Happy New Year to you and I hope that you had as lovely a Christmas as we did. Santa was very generous and brought me some card-making goodies which I shall be using and posting results soon. In the meantime, here are 3 cards that I made recently to showcase the gorgeous Spellbinders Shapeabilities Butterfly Magic die. Hope you like them.

I enjoyed making these cards although it's quite fiddly trimming up edges of the die-cut. The flowers and leaves were made with Cheery Lynn dies and I also used a Memory Box Butterfly die.

Tools used:
Spellbinders Shapeabilities Butterfly Magic S5-153
Cheery Lynn B259 Daisy Strip and B304 Ivy Strip
Cheery Lynn B266 Tiny Things with Wings
Memory Box Butterfly Vine Border
