Loaded with Love

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by - it is Friday evening and you know what that means - the weekend is here- and from the look of the weather, it is going to be a lovely one - it seems that summer has not left us just yet!   I have had time in The Studio lately and have enjoyed playing around with some of the Little Birdie Crafts products and have to say they are a little bit addictive!!

I have cut/embossed the Spellbinders Card Creator Floral Panel Card Etched Dies Flower Garden by Sharyn Sowell using mauve card stock.  I do love the way this die can be used as a background or is a feature in itself.  It has been adhered to a pre-cut card base using liquid glue.

Next I have cut/embossed the Spellbinders Nestabilities Heart & Home Circle Delight Etched Dies #3 (#1 being the smallest) using cream card stock and the Platinum Die Cutting Machine. This has been popped up onto the card front using  Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.

The butterfly has been recycled, I believe it was originally from TYPO, this has been glued to the edge of the Doily using liquid glue and the wings popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Dodz. 

The CHIPBOARD ON YOUR BIRTHDAY WISHES has been coloured using Chameleon Pens and coated using Imagine irRESISTibles Pico Embellisher in Electric Purple and adhered to the doily and slightly onto the butterfly using liquid glue. 

Three flowers from VALERIE SNOW  have been adhered to the lower portion of the Die cut , the middle flower has been lightly sponged using Imagine Radiant Neon ink in Electric Purple.

Sparkle has been added to the edge of the top wings using Dazzle Cocktail -Sangria along with Silver Sequins.  I love the textured effect on the wings.  I have finished off using  some of the  Imagine irRESISTibles Pico Embellisher in Electric Purple to add faux enamel dots onto the card front.
