Happy day card making with my mate Laura

Yesterday was spent happily creating cards with my mate Laura & today just finishing touches

 The one above is a kraft easel card , backing  papers are Botanica from craftwork cards
The butterflies in yellow and pink are die cut using butterfly die which is photographed
On the midnight blush butterfly card on previous post. I inked the edges of card and flower/butterfly elements
. I used 'card candy' also Botanics for the centres of butterflies.
Paper used for yellow/pink butterflies was free paper given with a magazine a while back
Free paper details as promised :-)
These were scrapbook magazine no 78, see photo below

 The tall card above is covered with the fore mentioned free papers, sorry can't remember where:-(
The centre topper also. I will check and edit this post tomorrow - promise !
I stamped the pink circle onto topper in deep pink. Then stamped happy birthday circle onto a smaller topper . Stamps were henbury lane.

Die cut flowers are from Laura's fab die set from creative expressions  by sue wheeler I think.
I used deep pink and light green for the leaves.
Finished with white adhesive stones & green pearls.

More of the free papers ! Lovely butterfly background . 
These are from scrapbook magazine no 80

I used Tim holtz distress ink on a white tag. China blue , spiced marmalade & yellow
Using cut n dry pad adding colour till I was happy, 
I then I inked a swirly stamp with clear ink & then spritzed stamp with water. Quickly stamp this down on the tag and up again. As you dry with a heat gun the pattern of the stamp will get lighter as if bleached effect. 
I dried off stamp and inked it lightly with a soft grey, stamping lightly off set over the water effect 
Image. Then I stamped the upper right corner in grey too, just for continuity.
The cut n dry pad I used on tag was then used to ink around edges of card.
I stamped a little house stamp (free with craft stamper in 2009 !!!
Coloured in softly with pro- markers..
The tag is fixed down I added a metal tag shaped brad ( have loads of these and am determined to use them !   I added a little yellow flower to it and a yellow pearl to it & the extra butterfly I cut out and stuck on tag edge.
