A Little Vintage

Hi Everyone,

I'm a little late posting today, put it down to the champagne and cocktails last night, lol.

Today's card is for the The Ribbon Girl and the challenge this month is Aqua.  I love this colour but decided to use a little vintage image from the latest Marianne Design image sheet which of course fits perfectly into their Flower Mirror die as can be seen in my card below.

From the Ribbon Girl I have used the Aqua Pom Pom, 4mm white pearl string beads, pink rose vintage style hessian Ribbon, Ivory Button Twine, Teal Mini Dahlias, Melissa Frances Lock Box Applique Resin which also comes with the little key which I have placed on the mini envelope (left), and 20mm resin flat back pearl.

The gorgeous papers are digital, yes digital from Michelle Roos Etsy Site HERE.  I have used the Vintage Garden set for my card but there are soooo many gorgeous designs.  I used the elements from this set too, the mini envelope, bunting and the bow at the bottom of the image.

Here's a close up of the little mini envelope with the applique resin key from resin set and one of the teal flowers attached to the centre from The Ribbon Girl.

A touch of gesso here and there, hehe.  

Doesn't the new Marianne Design Die look gorgeous.

Here's the inside.  The Vintage Garden digital papers includes inserts, what a bonus!

Enjoy the rest of the day.

Morning Everyone,

I know, my second post today, lol but what a beautiful image.  It's challenge time at BunnyZoe and this month Karina has prepared for us a Bingo Board, so hopefully you'll be able to hop on over and play with us.

I have used the gorgeous image "Daphne" by Whimsy Stamps.  I just love Sylvia Vets images, they are my favourtie images, always adorable and a joy to colour.

I have stitched around the card and the image, but it's hard to see in this photograph and believe me it was a major achievement for me to photograph, lol.  Everything that I was clearing out of my craft room ended up on the dining room table and floor so I had to clear space in order to set up my photo tent and lights, lol.

The paper is from the Marianne Design July release paper pad as well as the number 4, cut from the new numbers die.  My second use of this die today, so definitely needed for your stash.

Peek A Boo

Hi Everyone,

I'm back from holiday, did you miss me?  Well actually we got back last Sunday but was hard work trying to stay awake until bed time when you arrive at 4:30 in the morning, making it 34 hours since you last went to bed.  Not a good idea going to work the next day either, so it's been a long week to say the least.

Sooo onto my card today.  My mojo hasn't fully returned, I think I left it in Florida, or it could be down to the tiredness, I actually fell asleep typing on the laptop one evening, lol, I've never done that before.  Right, where was I, oh yes.  I have used Candibean Peek A Boo image, isn't she a cutie and she's for my niece's 3rd birthday today, so you can see one of the new numbers from the Marianne Design's July release, so handy to have.

The papers are just my new favourite, My Precious Daughter from Pion Design.  Totally in love with these and of course all available from Live and Love Crafts, full list with pictures at the end of the post.

The Viewfinder called Lovely View is also from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps, I couldn't find my embossing mat, umm that's because I've tidied up you see, but is definitely one to have in your stash.

Add a Diecut at The Ribbon Girl

Hello Everyone,

I'm still having a fun time over in Florida, yippeeeeeee, another week to go.

My card today is for The Ribbon Girl Magnolia challenge which is "Add a Diecut".  Aren't I lucky, I chose to use my two newest dies from Noor Design sold right here in the UK at Crafts U Love.  I have used the border die and the rectangle frame.  Love all the filagree on these.

So what yummy goodies do I have on here from the Ribbon Girl, let's see......

Yummy Vintage cotton lace and Pink braid, love this Trim.  A little trowel charm bronze l tied with some twine and laid upon the little open envelope made from Michelle Roos Autumn Fall Vintage Digital Papers, love this set.

I have also used the fabulous 8mm pearls.

Maya Journal Book

Hello Everyone,

Well I should be well and truly settled on my holiday in Florida with the family and having fun, fun, fun.  

To keep you all inspired I have my crafty project already for you.  This week the LLC girls are inspiring you with the new Maya Design Coffee in the Arbour papers.

I have used Delicious Moments as the paper backing this custom Journal that I will be posting when I'm in the US.  The dress has been made using the Raspberry Lemonade paper.

I have added a pocket on the inside using the Raspberry Lemonade paper and for the pocket I used a sheet out of the Maya Design Vintage Basics 6x6 paper pad and added some Reinette lace.  I cut all the paper inside this journal and punched all the holes.

Here's a close up of the dress.  The lace is my favourite, Princess Grace and I have added 3 poppies to the waist.  I also used two small pieces of the Princess Grace lace, rolled up to create the sleeves.  The neckline was accented using the 3mm string beads and then placed onto a MayaRoad hanger.

The new diamante scissors were just perfect, so very elegant and the gold colour matched perfectly with these brown/cream/taupe tones.

Of course a journal wouldn't be complete without a pen right, or to be precise a ranger pen nib or two added to the centres of the butterflies.  Speaking of which I didn't have the exact colour to match the poppies, so I used my copic airbrush and the BG11 to spray them.

I also added brown and cream frosted berries together, don't they look cool.

Lots of different laces and trims were added to the rings, all links can be seen below.
