Hobbiton themed card

Some of you may know that I live in Matamata aka Hobbiton.
We have been blessed to visit the Hobbiton village and movie set a few times now and it is a very magical place.
Here is a card I recently made based on what I had seen...

Here is a photo of the real thing...

The green dragon tavern...

And me dressed up for one of our visits...

I love this sweet little fox stamp from "The Wilderness Awaits" stamp set.
Here is the first card I made with it...

The image is watercoloured and I also made a tiny acorn punch art.
Once I had finished experimenting on my first card, I decided to go minimalistic for my second card...

I wasn't too keen on this card either so tried again, this time making a wallet style card which has a pocket inside to store gift cards etc...

Third time lucky! This is what I ended up teaching at my local extravaganza and card cafe.
The image is coloured using blender pens.
The punch art is very simple as you can see from the guide below...

A close up...

Happy crafting from Rhonda

Butterfly Basics
I love this photopolymer stamp set which was released a few months back.
It has so many elements to it and is so pretty. Here is my card that I taught at a few classes recently.

The stamped images on this card are all from the butterfly basics stamp set, which has corresponding butterfly framelit dies.
I used the dies to make the butterfly. When you move the scallop "wheel" at the bottom of the card, the butterfly swings from side to side to reveal the hidden message.

Inside the card...

The dashed line border stamp, which I used on the front of this card, I used on the following card to make a curvy straw.
This flexibilty is one of the features of the photopolymer stamps.

Here is the milkshake card that I CASEd from Tina Rappe...

Thanks for stopping by from Rhonda

Papillion Potpourri Spinner Card

When card is tilted the butterfly spins along the window...

As you can see this card is interactive and has been played with a lot! It was a litttle worse for wear by the time I got around to taking a photo of it.

Circle Spinner
A variation on the traditional spinner card...

Rotate the card to see the butterfly move around the circle...

Pop Up Cards

Here are some pop up cards that I have been teaching in my classes recently.

Birthday Surprise
Simple pop up card using the Sketched Birthday stamp set and banner punch.

Pop up surprise is three presents stacked up inside.

Big Butterfly
I wanted to make a special card for a friend's 50th birthday. My friend is very creative and has been to art school, so it had to be something that had a wow factor for her.

For the front of the card, I chose a collage style, using Gorgeous Grunge and Daydream Medallions stamp sets.

Inside, I chose to do this Swallowtail pop up card that was taught to me by my talented downline, Juanita van Winkel.

Do you like it?
