happy Birthday……..

Hi Stampers. Today's card uses the Butterfly Basics stamp set. I've chosen to do this one in Pool Party and Whisper White. I just love the lacey butterfly included in this set and can see some great backgrounds being created with it. Perhaps tomorrow……

Thank you for dropping by my blog. Have a great day!

Sending Wishes your way…..

Hi Stampers. I hope you are having a good start to the week. Today I am sharing a card using many different stamp sets. I love the frame I can create on cards using the Morning Meadow stamp set ( now retired) by Stampin Up. This technique I picked up by Papertrey on youtube.

Next I used the fern from Butterfly basics( Old Olive) to create a background. The flowers are from Flower Shop and Petite Petals, stamped in Pumpkin Pie.


The Bold Butterfly Framelits provided the size butterfly I wanted on this card, not too big! I cut it out three times for the extra dimension. Rhinestones added to give it the finishing bling and this card is ready to pop in the mail to someone special.

Thank you for viewing todays project. If you have any question please contact me. Have a great day!

A day at the Beach

Hi Stampers and welcome. Since summer has finally arrived I decided it was time to use the By the Tide stamp set I have had sitting waiting for me. This card reminds me of days spent on the beach. I chose these colours because they represent summer to me….gotta love Coral !!!

Colurs used are Crisp Canteloupe and Coral Calypso. I distressed the edges and fancy cut out the images. It's a really simple card to make and could easily be turned into a great scrapbook layout for summer photos. 

I hope you have enjoyed dropping by and will come again.

Awesomely Artistic

Hi Stampers. We've finally made it to the weekend….yay! I hope to spend some time in the studio, how about you? I managed a little time this morning and here is what I created with one of my new stamps "Awesomely Artistic" by Stampin Up. When I spotted this in the new catalogue I knew I had to own this stamp set. It has not disappointed.

 I grabbed the Thinlits Label card as soon as they hit the clearance rack and I am so pleased I did! It was another product that passed me by when it was current. I can see I will get a lot of use from it, so money well spent !

 The colours used in this card are Daffodil Delight and Tempting Turquoise. The design is simple but effective I think. Do you agree? I'd love to hear from you so please leave your comments.

 Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Butterfly Basics

Hi Stampers and welcome to the Firefly Studio! Today I'd like to share a card I made using Butterfly Basics by Stampin Up. I enjoyed creating the background for this card and of course colouring in with the Blender pens.

The colours I chose to use are Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, Crumb Cake, and Baked Brown Sugar.  I hope you have enjoyed the card. Have a great day!

Watercolor Wings

Hi Stampers. I know I promised a new project and I am working on it but I had to share my first card using the new Watercolour Wings set by Stampin Up. I was so excited to receive my stash of new stamps just in time for the weekend, especially since our forecast is rain…..bring it on! I love having an excuse to stay in my studio and create.

 To create the background on my tag I used Awesomely Artistic and Butterfly Basics. The colours are basic grey, pear pizzazz and blushing bride. Oh I do hope you like this little card. I'd love to hear from you so feel free to leave me a comment. Thank you for dropping by and have a wonderful weekend.

Daffodil Delight

Hi Stampers and welcome back. It's been ages since I have had time to craft or post so I apologise for the long absence. I think the break did me good as I am ready to get back into creating some pretties.

 This is my first attempt at the Tag Topper punch card closure….wow that's a mouth full! I can see a few tweaks I need to make on the next card but all in all I am pretty happy with the outcome. What do you think ?…….

I hope you have enjoyed stopping by. Keep watching as the next few weeks I will be working on an altered book……should be fun!
Have a great day!
