Fussy and fancy Challenge #210 Add a die Cut

So here is F&F Challenge #210, I really don't know where the time goes to, but our lovely hostess Gina has chosen 'Add a Diecut' as her theme. It is a great challenge because I know I rarely make a card without a diecut even if it is just the sentiment but my favourite diecuts are butterflies especially as I can use them to cover my mistakes .... perhaps a thumbprint or worse still a stray blob of glue!!  So I decided to go to the extreme and every bit even the base of this easel card is a diecut, the only other thing I use was plain white card , distress ink and a few gems ....so here goes:

I love easel cards they are a lovely surprise for the person receiving it, they look complicated but they really are quite easy to make.

Here is a closeup of  of my butterflies and flowers:

I hope you will join us and enter what you make, it is so easy to enter see here. We do love to see  all your beautiful work, it can be a card, a tag mixed media, anything you fancy making as long as it has a diecut on it.

That is it for today so Bye for now xx Annie

F&F Challenge#208 spring flowers

Well officially it is Spring but honestly it doesn't feel like it over here in the UK. However for Fussy and Fancy Challenge #208 our lovely hostess Darlene has chosen the theme Spring Flowers, I took my inspiration from the few Spring flowers in our garden, Daffodils and Crocus, I just love the combination of yellow and purple a teaser of what is to come when the garden is fully in  bloom.

Creative Expressions brought out a beautiful set of dies by Sue Wilson last Year which enable you to cut daffodils out either embossed and flat or by adding the tiny trumpet a really pretty 3D flower. So here is my offering for this month:

and here is a closeup of the flowers:

Hope you will be inspired to join us and create your own version of Spring Flowers in whatever craft you prefer, a card a tag, mixed media. We would love to see them and it is so easy to enter see here

Bye for now and Happy Crafting
