Name that die?

Happy Saturday :o)

I'm not sure if I'd normally show this card, but I'm hoping someone can identify the die on it?!  I received an order from Dies to Die For yesterday, and if you've ever ordered from them, you'll know they pop a few die cuts in with each order.  This butterfly was included in mine, and I neeeeed it, but after spending hours searching I haven't been able to find it.  I did ask on the Dies to Die For facebook page, but Tracy must be busy, it's the bank holiday weekend after all.  And I really neeeeed to order it nooooooooow lol.


So, do you know what it is?

I can't take much credit for the card really, seen as I didn't even cut the die... love the glittery card, but again it's not mine lol.  I just popped it on a card and added a Stampin' Up sentiment and a black Doodlebug sequin... easy peasy.

**Edited... Yay, die identified, thank you Susan (and Debs on FB)!  I knew I should've just asked here first lol.  It's this one HERE if anyone would like to see, although I obviously rushed off and bought it and must have got the last one as it's now out of stock!**

Thanks for popping in, and for any help!  Hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Dex went on a school trip to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park today... well, it's rained, hailed and just about frozen him solid, poor thing!  He was wet through and covered in mud (they had them sat on the ground sketching???)  Got him stripped off and straight in his fluffiest onesie as soon as we got back... such a shame, he was really looking forward to going.

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Less is More - use 3 stamps

Hello :o)

Just a quick post with a last minute entry for Less is More... their challenge this week is 'use 3 stamps', which proved almost impossible for me!  My poor crafty brain just doesn't work that way... I've never been able to do challenges that ask for a certain number of something.

I've faffed around all day, and come up with two cards that aren't really doing anything for me, but I'll post them anyway!


Items Used
Stamps - Clearly Besotted
MFT Die-namics - Stitched Square Frames
MFT Die-namics Blueprints 14
Memento Inks - Pear Tart, Rose Bud, Tuxedo Black
Pearls & flower sequins from my stash


Items Used
Flower stamp - Stampin' Up
MFT background stamp - Romantic Script
MFT Die-namics Blueprints 14
Sentiment stamp - Clearly Besotted
Doodlebug enamel dot
Stampin' Up ink pad - Soft Sky
(plus a lot of faffing around with ink daubers & post it notes...)

I finished another one, but that's even more blah than these, might end up in the bin lol.

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)
