Stash from Ally Pally

Hello all and thank you for visiting. After my failure with the Weaving dies I thought I'd show you a couple of cards that I have made with some of the other stash I bought at Ally Pally
The first card is made with the buttefly Striplet die by John Lockwood (I know that you all know him/visit his blog but wanted to try adding a link!) Let me know if it works please.

5x7 card blank
CE John Lockwood Butterfly Striplet stamp
DI Peacock Feathers
Tonic Nuvo Crystal drops Wedgwood Blue
Raspberry Pink
Turquoise pearlescent card from stash
All Occasions Sentiment die

I then had a play with serif and came up with this - I hope you don't mind John, so so inspired by you

I created a template in serif using lots of black circles and did an acetate wrap and placed the butterfly and pear 
l dots on top and the flower is stuck onto the card. It does make the butterfly look as if it's floating
6x6 card blank
Turquoise pearlescent card from stash
pearls as before
SB Les Papillon die
SB D-lite poppy die

I hope you like them, I was really pleased with my first attempts at stamping 


  1. They look so beautiful Karen,. xxxx

  2. Yay Karen,
    You're a star on both points. The link worked!!!! And your stamping is spot on, so I think a gold star is required!!
    Your cards are so delicate looking.

  9. Hi Karen
    What failure with the weaving dies? Your weaving looked okey kokey to me.
    These are two very pretty cards. Love the colours you have chosen. By someone called John Lockwood you say? Hahaha!
    Best wishes.

  10. Hi Karen,

  11. Hi Karen,
    For first attempts at stamping I think both cards are wonderful and using the acetate makes such a pretty effect, Jackie xx
