Flyin beauties...

Here's a few altered plaque's that I made as gifts. My girlfriend just made up a few with Christmas themes that turned out beautifully. I'm a butterfly addict so here's what I came up with when I found these little deco cuties at the store on clearance and saw much potential.

I definitely did a bit of glittering on these babies. The butterly is from an SU! set (Wonderful Wings) that I had wanted for a long time. I finally picked it up at an SCS gathering in Collinsville, IL. WOO HOO

I used several layers of patterned paper. The final layer is an awesome cream shimmer cardstock that I love to use with the Cuttlebug (as you can see). For the butterflies...I embossed them with glitter ep, cut them out, folded them a bit to give the fluttery effect. Oh yes and there's some poppin action goin on underneath those fluttering beauties.

Let me know what you think of these. I am getting more and more into altered art and I have to say these were a blast to beautify.


  1. these are both beautiful, but I especially like the second one "wink, wink" lol Love ya chickie!

  2. Love what you did to your butterfly. Totally inspires me to pick mine up and use it again!

  3. Very preeeetty!! Nice job! I think butterflies and glitter make a great combo!

  4. I love these cards!!! So pretty. Looks hard too :D

    Oh, love your hair in you picture... I know it's not related to your work but hey, thought I'd let you know :D

  5. Love these. What a great gift idea. The bright colours and textures are gorgeous. :0) Mel (SBS2)
