I love the easel cards that have been popping up all over the place recently. Here are some I made earlier :o)

I love Tim Holtz new dies and here are some beautiful butterflies I have made with them. Some of the cards have embossed card or metal on them and some layered flowers, they are not all showing in the pictures though.

The copper metal was embossed using my cuttlebug and coloured with paint. I found a nautical pebble hat went perfectly with it too.

Some floral cards for different occasions. I stuck card to metal and used cuttlebug dies to create the shapes and cuttle bug folders to do some lazy embossing. I layered the flower shapes and then stuck them together with glossy accents, then used some card candy for the centres and as a prop to ensure the cards stand up properly. I have left a space on some of them to add the right sentiment when the card is needed.

The new home card has layered houses and words, the butterflies have 'stickled' wings in an attempt to create some irridesence and the round card is waiting for a name or sentiment to sit in its centre.

All the card shapes were made using spellbinder nestabilities, card and pretty paper, some of which I decorated myself.
