Fluttering By With Some Sheena Peeks

Evening lovely Crafty Friends. It's been a beautiful day here in Yorkshire today and I've had a much needed afternoon in the garden taming the Jungle. It's so nice to be outside again.

I've even seen some butterflies, which seem to be very rare this Summer so it was a delight to create more with one of the new stamp sets from Sheena Douglass being launched on Create and Craft this Friday, 31st August. This one is full of Butterflies and Dragonflies from very large stamps to small ones and they really are a joy to work with.

Here are two of the cards I created with them.

I used Distress Inks to create a background and dropped the new Luminarte pourables onto it to create lovely shiny splodges before using the sentiment stamp. The butterflies are also painted with the pourables.

With this one the dragonfly was painted with the pourables and I made a masking tape ribbon with them before stamping the small dragonfly on top. Masking tape is my new discovery at the minute!!!

There are four new sets being launched altogether and they are all as yummy as this one. The shows are scheduled for 10am, 1pm and 6pm so I hope you'll be able to catch one if not all of them.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you tomorrow when I'll be back for my much needed fix of workdesks. Oh I have missed them.

Hi Lisa, Two gorgeous cards, and both with such lovely background colours - must say though, the butterfly one is my favourite.

Oh wow, Lisa! They are so beautiful! I LOVE them and I NEED those stamps! There I was thinking I could resist them, but between you and Sheena...how can I not buy them?! The dragonflies in particular would be a big hit with my niece and with Meg too. Just stunning!


Stunning cards Lisa - the colours are glorious! Love the stamps, and your fab. inking techniques. The masking tape is such a brilliant idea, and so effective.
Hugs, Sylvia xx

Gorgeous cards Lisa - am definitely going to have a play with that masking tape idea - looking forward to seeing them "live" on TV on Friday xxx

Two beautiful cards Lisa. Oh dear - looks like the plastic will be getting an outing again soon.
I managed a while in the garden today too. The front was so wet and soggy though that I was sliding all over the place trying to cut the grass.(Bit steep out the front but the bck is level.)The only butterflies I saw were cabbage whites I'm afraid.

These are both wonderful, Lisa! Like you, I'm always amazed to see the variations between all the DT members!

Beautiful cards there Lisa. You say masking tape, do I take it you actually ink and stamp on them and use them like tissue tape? Whatever both those cards are real beauties!
