Morning Everyone, it's Monday so soon and time for the new Live and Love Challenge which this month is "Wings".  I chose to stamp my little Angel image from the Stempleglede Vintage Christmas Stamp Set.  I have also included a Resin Angel sat on the lace on the right hand side.  The papers are from Pion's latest release "Days of Winter", links at the bottom.


Here's a closer view of the Prima Resin Angel and also the Stamped Stempleglede image.  You can also just see on the right some script text, embossed in white.  This was from the Stempleglede Postcard from Paris Rubber Stamp Set.

I have done a small flower arrangement including the daisy with one of the new wooden buttons placed in the centre, some flower spray, pearl stamen in ivory and just out of sight some pine cones. I also draped some silver pearl string.  This is the new type in store and is quite rigid and therefore easy to put where you want it to stay.

I have used 3 types of lace, oops. Lace Madame de Pompadour, Sophie and Rhinestones Lace.

I also dotted a few of the wooden stars and added a little gesso.

I also added a little snow tex to the Holly Leaves.

I will be back this evening with the New Little Darlings Saturated Canary Blog Hop, so see you later.

Pion Design Days of Winter

Morning Everyone,

It's August but the new Pion Papers at Live and Love Crafts have arrived in plenty of time for you to get your Christmas Cards done.  I have chosen some sepia colours so decided to colour my little Lili of the Valley "A Little Prayer" image in sepia colours too.

The papers I have used are Pion Design Days of Winter 6 x 6 Winter Birds. I have also used the 12x12 ornament to cut the Poinsetta and added some pearl stamen and frosted berries to the centres.

I have used a little shabby white frantage around the image to emulate snow falling.  The lace Valentine is just beautiful and you can clearly see the scallopped edges.

The new vintage wood buttons were just perfect and looked like they were made to go with these papers.  You can see them on the centres of the snowflakes on the edge.

I have added two tags, tied with seam binding and a Christmas Tree Charm and Snowflake Charm.

I have also added some button lace to the right hand side and some snow tex dotted around the card.

I added a paper pocket to place the tags in and used the tag sheet to cut the ticket with the Christmas sentiment.
