Bluebell Behind Presents


I have another Christmas card for you today.  The image is from the new release by Wild Rose Studio called Bluebell behind presents, coloured with distress inks.  The papers are from the 6x6 My Minds Eye Paper pad Vintage Christmas.

I have used the Marianne Design Craftable Stitch Circle, Flower and Leaf Die Set and also the new corner collectable die Corner and Winter Sent COL 1342 which comes with a few text sentiments and for this card I chose "Snowfun".

I have used the BowEasy to tie the organza wired ribbon and also added a pair of gloves charm, so cute. The flower arrangement contains Ruffle Red Rose and finsihed with the Magnolia Doohickey  Sprawling Ferns, love these.  There is a dusting of snow tex, my favourtie white stuff, or is it, I also have some shabby white frantage on the image, this is also a favourite of mine, lol.

The cheesecloth, lace, snow tex, shabby white frantage, kort and godt chrysanthemum's and organza ribbon rose trim are all available from Live and Love Crafts.  The snowflake border, I'm sure you all know by now is by Joycraft.

Lastly I added flatback pearls to the centres of the organza rose trim.

Christmas Time

Morning Everyone,

Monday again and time for me to post another LLC project.  Firstly I'd like to thank you all for the fabulous comments/likes on my blog, the Live and Love Crafts Blog and Instagram for my baby project.  I truly appreciate all the comments left, as do all the team, it makes it all worthwhile :)

OK, onto today's project and a new theme, "Wish Upon a Star".  Open to interpretation as usual but Angels came to mind so I have reached for my Inkido sheet of Angels, which is pretty bare now, and added a couple of the new bark stars and added little sweetheart blue blossoms in the centrres.

I started with two papers, Pion's Swedlish Lapland 12x12 Sleigh Ride and Maya's Autumn Basics 12x12 XI.  I have edged with Picket Fence Distress Crackle Paint and I chose the wide lace Frederique which runs through the centre

Here is a close up of the flower arrangement.  Loving the little frosted berries and they are available in lots of colours.  I wish I could show you how they glisten in the light.

So what else do we have; foam flowers, birch pine cones, white apple, 30mm wild rose, white flower spray, blue sweetheart blossoms and not forgetting the minature shabby chic Angel sitting at the bottom of the arrangement.

On the right hand side I have stamped a Marianne Design text of Christmas onto the wooden flag from the wooden veneer flags and banners set, and below I have used the prima wooden clock from the Craftsman set and added one of the prima water taps spelling out "TIME", so together we have CHRISTMAS TIME.

Here's a close up of the Angel, isn't she soooo sweet. Oh and I can't forget the Prima rose resin corner, I do love the resin pieces.

The tag at the top is tied with Seam Binding, twine and 3mm string pearls and also two mini bells, which actually ring, soooooo cute.

Rowan Fairy

Hi Everyone,

I have a gorgeous image to share with you today by Sylvia Vet of Whimsy Stamps, she is called Rowan Fairy and is so so beautiful.  I love Sylvia's images. She is due into stock on Monday at BunnyZoe, so if you want to ensure you get one, pop on over here to pre-order.  She sold out as quick as she came in last time so this is a re-stocks that Nikki is expecting in, so if you want to ensure you get to colour her up for Christmas, pre-order is the way to go.

The papers are by MME called Vintage Christmas 6x6.  The star banner is a die by Whiff of Joy called
Stars Festoon.

Flatback pearls have been added to the centres of the snowflakes.

The green gingham ribbon is wired and will do what it's told, lol.  The large red flower is a Ruffle Rose and the text is  Christmas Sentiments by Kaisercraft.

It isn't showing up well in the photo but her wings have a coating of Diamond Stickles

The lampost is a magnolia doohickey die called Paris Night Dies.

Simply Adorable

Morning Everyone,

Here we are again...... Monday.  So don't know where the time goes.  We decided to go for a walk yesterday in the woods with Ollie and seriously the heaven's opened and we got absolutely drenched. I was not a happy bunny :(

This week at LLC, the theme is "Charms" and LLC carries the most fabulous range of charms imaginable so when your done hop on over and check them out. Note: advisable to do after you have made a coffee and sat down, there are soooooo many.

Where was I, oh yeah, "Charms" so at first glance I bet your saying, where's the charm?  Don't worry, all will be revealed.

I have used the MayaDesign Sofiero Collection called  Enjoying the lovely fragrance.  I chose this one because the print was small and therefore perfect to make my little pram.  I so loved putting this together.

Here's a view from the top so you can see the floral display on the top of the box,  and perfectly displays the gorgeous array of flowers that LLC now stocks.  I have also added some berries, new colours have just arrived in stock and they glisten beautifully in the light.  The two tone flowers I think are my favourites and the little buds and of course I wouldn't be without the flower spray.  I have also used the small Gardenia's in white.

Here's a close up of the little pram which is really sturdy.  I have used organza rose trim and the pearl trim to decorate and added a Melissa Frances Resin Butterfly to the centre of the carriage along with a little 10mm rose.

The wheels each have a beaded heart.

This picture also shows the Prima Chantlelle Medallion white flower in the centre and again I added a 10mm two tone rose which separated the stamen nicely.

And here you can clearly see the "BABY" charm hanging from the roof of the pram.  The magnolia baby image was coloured with distress markers and I have added glamour dust to her wings.  She is laid upon some cheese cloth, and is sleeping soundly.

I made a matching tag and added Sandy's vintage seam binding and another two tone rose in 20mm, well everything has to match doesn't it? 

And here's the pram in the box.  I have to say the photo's don't do this project justice and I found it hard to part with, lol.

A side view so you can see the little "BABY" Charm hanging.

And again out of the box.

I would like to enter my project into the following challenges:-
MDU - Anything Goes
HobbyHouse - Roses
