More My Minds Eye Wild Asparagus Cards

Well thigns have gone crazy busy around here, meetings & parties coming out of my ears as well as a huge order for fairies for one of the local theatres plus enquiries for Stampin Up demos at Christmas Fayres...sleep is most definately going to be optional over the next few weeks! (It's also a great excuse for the housework not being done lol!) Of course on top of all of this the usual seasonal running around after Daisy has begun already with lots of parties and activities planned - and the dreaded parents night tonight. I'm guessing she's maybe too chatty in the class, nothing like her mother of course lol!

So here are some more of the cards I made with the My Minds Eye Wild Asparagus range.

I cut the hearts from Accent Essentials with the Cricut, scalloped the bottom layer with the Stampin Up border punch. The 4u is chipboard stickers and its finished with 3 buttons (how much do I love buttons lol!)
The butterfly was cut on the Walk in my Garden cartridge. The scallop was punched with the Stampin Up punch again. Flowers were an xcut punch, and the whole lot was distressed with the brown Staz On ink pad. And of course lots more buttons!
Label cut on Plantin Schoolbook, brown trim, "daughter" rub on, Xcut flower punch, stampin up scallop circle punch, ribbon thru top of tag and, you guessed it, another button!
This one's really quick and easy...I added some gold pearlised paper and just used the 3 fern rub-ons and the wording reading "together forever".
Rub-on wording on this reads "it's new". Used the scalloped punch along the bottom and cut the hearts from Plantin Schoolbook. I added a few gems to the hearts to finish off (no buttons!!! what an oversight!)
Another super simple one with a fern rub-on and the "darling daughter" wording. Just finished off with a few of the ribbon trims.
That's your lot for today! Hope your all fab and if anyone is passing by with caffeine loaded chocolate be sure to pop in!!
Take care everyone

My Minds Eye Wild Asparagus Cards

Here are some of the cards I made with the My Minds Eye Wild Asparagus range. These papers are gorgeous and the pics really don't do them justice. I used the papers, gems, fabric brads, buttons & trims, ribbons, rub ons & alphabet sets.

For this one I also used an xcut flower punch. The flowers on the squares are each finished with a button, and the flowers in the centre finished with gems (except the very centre which is finished with a button with some trim tied through it...

This is made with the Stampin Up scalloped circle punch, a stampin up circle in the centre and finished with a fabric brad. I have used ribbon for the leaves and finished with 3 gems in the top right. The rub on reads "precios girl"...

The flower here is made with ribbon with the Stampin Up circle, and x cut punched flower and a button in the centre. Again the leaves are made with ribbon and the "hi" is using the cardstock stickers. I used the Stampin Up Scallop border punch on the bottom strip of green...

For this one I wrapped the top panel with 2 different ribbons, the rub on read "together forever" and it's finished with some knotted ribbon in the bottom right hand corner...
The topper in the centre for this one is a large scallop circle cut using Accent Essentials on the Cricut. It has been finished again with the Stampin Up scalloped circle & smaller circle. The rub on reads"baby" with a couple of flourishes. It has been finished off with some ribbon across the centre & 3 buttons... Super simple - 9 buttons & some orange trim with a "friend" peel off in the bottom right hand corner...
This is the same scalloped circle on the cricut I used earlier. I've tied the buttons with some of the wool from the tim pack and finished it off with 3 gems. It has all been distressed with my trusty brown Staz-On...

Last but not least for now, the heart was cut with Plantin Schoolbook on the Cricut. The wording reads "adorable" and it has again been finished with button tied with trim & gems...

I will try and upload the other ones I made very soon. I have saved all these pictures in the small format but if you would like these emailed to you so you can see them better drop me a note at
Hope you all stay warm and safe tonight, especially if you are watching fireworks. We're are heading to a local display with one of last years x-factor finalists performing. Should be fab.
Till soon everyone, and thank you so much for looking.
