Brianna The Butterfly (goes tropical)

Morning all, Squirrel here, so sorry that this is a later post than usual - I fell asleep in the armchair last night and didn't have the energy to do it before bed, and this morning I had a haircut at silly o'clock.  Still, better late than never!

I have a bit of a tropical colourfest for you today


So, for this colourful little lady I have used

Hope your weekend is just as vibrant!

Hugs to all

Baby rattle card and tags

Happy Friday everyone, it's Kat here!

I'm mixing up the old and new for today's card because I had a feeling that the super cute new Hello Little One stamps from MFT would go perfectly with the baby rattle die from a while ago...was I right?!

Oh, and if you're a fan of itsy bitsy polka dots then you might like to check out the awesome background stamp I used for this card...just saying!
I've heat embossed it in white and blended Distress Oxides over the top.


I got rather addicted to this cute rattle die and decided it would also be great for making shaker tags, although I guess they are kind-of upside down because it made sense (in my head anyway!) to put the handle loop at the top!


If you would like more pictures and details on how I created this card and tags, including the Copic colours I used, then please do pop over to visit me at Paper Firefly.

Have a wonderful day!

Season's Tweetings

For my midweek card I'm using a stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps called Season's Tweetings.  The birds are really cute and could be chicks, penguins or robins so are quite versatile.  I stamped and masked 3 of them in this mini flock and sponged ink around them in Victorian Velvet, Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky and Black Soot.

Sanford

Now, I'm not sure who left the tap on in the sky, but there's more water out there than I wanted to see!

Morning all, Squirrel here, with a dose of sunshine colours and a dollop of cute and fluffy CAS for you.


I decided to keep this CAS because the image is quite detailed

The happy birthday sentiment comes with the image

and that's all she wrote

Well, that's all I wrote, for today anyway

Nancy Gardens

Hello, Squirrel here today, and I am fretting about our grass, if it doesn't get cut soon I may never be able to get out of the back door.

I bet Nancy doesn't have that problem, after all, she was born to garden.




Right then, the yummy stuff

Boom!

Hi everyone, it's Kat here!

A few weeks ago I really enjoyed playing with the volcano dies from MFT and couldn't resist another play but this time for something a little more interactive!


Did you spot the pull tab?

Do you wanna see what happens?!


Boom!  It was so easy to create the slider element as all the bits you need are included in the die set, and this could be used for so many other slider cards too...watch this space I guess!
