Summer is natures way...



Hi
It is Tracey here with my mid month inspiration project for the  CraftdeeBowz July challenge .I have not made a fun dome shaped card in a while so i thought i would make one for you today. I love the dimension you have to make a box to send it in !

I have used a tonic die set to create the lattice on the dome.



The papers,pink card ,green card  and sentiment  are  all from The paper boutique and are called butterfly medley..The bow was created using my CraftdeeBowz  bow maker.which makes fabulous bows with ease every time.The butterflies are made using a die from a magazine i have had for a long time. I just matted them on green card and cut around them

Fluttering



Hi
I got this Angela poole fluttering  butterfly die set from  In2craft  and i love it. It is so pretty and quite large so you can get a big statement card just using the butterfly as a focal point. The die set comes with a stunning large ,intricate border die , a small butterflly and various dies to  embellish the tab that is used to pull down and make the wings move ... plus all the dies to actually construct the butterfly. It is very easy to put together too once it has been cut out .
There is also a humming bird set on the  website....and pretty papers to complete the collection
I used  the stunning Artisan designs Arcadia silk papers designed by the lovely Pete Simpson  on my card and they can be found HERE



When you pull the tab down the wings unfold so it looks like this




But you then fold flat to post ... very clever .

Die cutting essentials special edition craft kit issue 9





HI
I have been sent  a Die cutting essentials special edition kit 09 from from the lovely peeps at  In2Craft.

In the kit comes free a  pretty 2 part heart die .an embossing folder, a beautiful set of papers and an A5 stamp sheet  all with a wedding theme .
  For my project I have made a wedding planner using the eileen hull  Journal  bigz die . I used the beautiful papers to cover the journal . I have kept the front plain as there is an elastic fastener to hold it together which would have knocked off any overly fussy embellishmentsif i had put them on the front.






This is the first project ... There will be another  post in an hour so check that one out using the same kit
