Bubble Butterfly and Flower Meadows

Bubble Butterfly and Flower Meadows
This card was made using Viva Decor paper soft colour to create the background using the Viva Decor background stencil flower meadows. Then I added some glitter glue in the centre of the flowers, be warned this is very fast, highly addictive and therapeutic. It almost beats chocolate. I stamped and embossed the Woodware bubble butterfly(jgs252) onto the card and also onto a separate piece of white card stock. I cut out the butterfly, cutting of the antennas and the swirly bits, I decorated the butterfly with Viva Decor my paper world paper pens and Viva Decor gloss gel, I added glitter whilst it was wet to a few of my pearls. To the body I used Viva Decor my paper world gloss gel transparent and sprinkled in Stampendous silver crushed glass glitter. I also used the gloss gel as a glue for the Craftworks Candi from Woodware. On the other 2 samples I used crystal stickers etc.. But you could use anything you wanted like buttons.

No calorie, fat free Easter eggs, you can have as many as you like and put no weight on

These Easter eggs were made from a polystyrene egg, using fabric, ribbon and 2 round headed pins, no glue.
Score into the polystyrene egg, with a craft knife, making a grove all around the egg, turn the egg 90 degrees and repeat, cut your scraps of fabric and push into the groves. Once completed on all 4 sides, criss cross at the bottom and pin your ribbon, place the ribbon up the channels to hide where the groves are, if you want the eggs to hand, make a loop and a bow and then pin the ribbon to the top of the egg. If you don't want them to hang don't make the loop. You can do this all sorts of technique to all shapes of polystyrene. Have fun.
