This card I made for the Di Hickman Card Sketch Jan #5. Another first for me as it is the first time of joining in with the challenge.
I used Pink Petticoat Blooming Doodles paper (putty & black). I put some silver & black rose ribbon down the right hand side of the card which I matted and layered onto silver, putty and black cardstock. I put a strip of black card, mounted onto silver card running along the lower card and added two little silver heart peel offs and a black ribbon bow.
I'm not sure if I like the end result as it is quite a "busy" card - not my usual style at all - but it is growing on me LOL

This card also meets the criteria for the Scrummy Stash Cafe challenge which is to use ribbons.
I covered a piece of card with kitchen foil and embossed it with a cuttlebug embossing folder. I added this to a black card and then stamped a DMD butterfly stamp in black ink onto white card and matted and layered it onto black and silver card. I then added a black ribbon and a buckle cut on my Wizard.

I've been up early this morning crafting. I've been making some Fat Book Pages, but had a bit of a disaster as my big tube of UHU glue decided to get a hole in it and it leaked all over the place :-(

The inside cover of the book is again covered with scrapbook papers and the "imagine stamp" is a Heidi Swapp one, which I stamped and heat embossed. The next page was stamped using a brilliance 3 colour ink pad and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The stamp is from Crafty Individuals.
The left page is again stamped and heat embossed and the stamp is another Crafty Individuals one. The right page is covered with Anna Griffin paper and the "Smile" stamp is from DMD. The butterfly is one I bought from Dawn Bibby's shop and it comes already glittered.
The left page I stamped in encore metalic ink and heat embossed it. I aslo re-stamped one of the butterflies onto yellow card and decoupage it to put a little colour in the page. The right page is a DMD stamp, which I stamped onto yellow vellum and heat embossed again. I just added a few papermania die-cut flowers.
The left page again I stamped using encore metalic ink and heat embossed. The "dream a little dream" is a stamp by Anita's which was stamped onto yellow vellum. The butterfly stamp is another Crafty Individuals stamp, again stamped onto yellow vellum and again I re-stamped the butterfly and decoupaged it. The right page is a DMD stamp, stamped with Versamark pale blue ink and embossed. I attached this to the page using little flower brads and then just added a couple of Papermania flower stickers.
The right page is part of a download scrapbook page / set from Cuddly Buddly. I inked the tag using versamark ink and stamped Smile on it in a darker purple ink. I then added two pieces of twill ribbon, which I also inked with versamark purple ink. The last page is the inside of the back cover and I just covered it with scrapbook papers and stamped and heat embossed the saying - I think it is an Anita's stamp.

I've been busy making my first Bind It All book today. Hopefully I will be able to post some pics of it tomorrow as it is currently drying (glue and silicone) and then I just need to put it all together.

The first thing is an altered tin. This is the first time I've altered anything. I used my alcohol inks to cover the tin and then used old paper distress ink on the background of the butterfly and tore the edges and edged them with walnut stain distress ink. The butterfly stamp is from Crafty Individuals and was stamped using walnut distress ink and then I coloured it with some Adirondack ink. I just added two little flowers and a few bits of raffia.

Whilst I love the effect I got, I don't like the card at all. I think I will try some ATC's and Fat Book Pages as I think these will look much better.
Hubby has took the boys out today, so I'm off for another play with my inks and stamps.

Here are a couple of Fat Book Pages which I made yesterday. They were made using digital downloads from Cuddly Buddly. Some of the elements of the flowers have been decoupaged and the backs are covered with the same papers and have two tags eyeletted together with my details of the swap written on the bottom tag.
