Hi again, another post from Shelagh-land - twice in one week well, I have been a bit more productive - not so much in 'making' - but remembering to take photos! 
I have had a number of dies and new Clarity stamps resting in my craft room for a bit and when asked to make a wedding card at short notice, I decided it was a good time to play productively.

A Tonic die was used to cut out the aperture for the box lid and also for the card frame from white pearlescent card, the latter also in silver card. Waste heart cut outs were used to decorate the box, along with Clarity Stamps small fuchsias. 
Snowfall acetate was added to the back of the aperture as this reminded me of confetti.
The stepper was cut using Tattered Lace stepper die - gosh, how easy this makes steppers and all the layering, a big change from all the measuring I usually do for my signature card. 
The central circle was cut using a plain die on Neenah Solar White before the 'couple' from one of the latest Clarity Wee Folk' sets was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black and clear detail embossed.

On this, Stormy Sky was brushed over torn paper and moon mask to create a landscape then Squeezed Lemonade added sparingly.
Once the layers were added onto the stepper, more Clarity small fuchsias were stamped, embossed and added, along with two Clarity butterflies.

May I say what a joy it has been to put together something that reflects my favourite techniques - die-cutting, stamping, stepper cards. I have a few more things to do over the next few weeks and hope to share the outcomes with you, successful or otherwise. This is the lead up to one of my busiest times outwith you-know-what! what with anniversaries, birthday cards for four generations and having to think up at least four variations for each occasion as I make all the family cards. I may even resort to a few quick makes - and why not!

Please come back and watch this space! You are more than welcome anytime. Meantime, back to the down-sizing of my craft room - not really - only disposing of some or many of the items I have 'outgrown.'
My mum's reaction to this - 'You'll only buy some more to fill in the spaces.' Never a truer word!

Enjoy the weekend!
