Summertime and All Aboard

Hello Everyone,

I am sharing two cards to share with you today.  If you was lucky to get the Making Cards magazine this month you would of seen this card already and I am certainly looking forward to some sun this summer following all the recent snow :)

 I have used Maja Design Summertime papers, just love these.
 I made some Foamiran Flowers using Silver Lustre and white.  
 I added frantage to the diecut butterfly.

My second card I made using Pion Design's NEW paper collection the World Awaits.  I loved cutting up all the different papers to add lots of details.

Hope you like them both

Moments to Remember

Hi All, so I decided to make an Album.  I decorated all the chipboard pages, leaving the backs plain to add photo's later and any journaling to be added to the decorated pages.   I have used the beautiful Pion Design Days Gone By.  All the links for the products used are as always, at the end of the post.

The Flowers on the front are made from Foamiran, distress inks for coloration, vintage matt white stamens and the Whimsy Hellbore Die Set.

I used a couple of Stempleglede Stamps.  One of them you can see the flourish on the right hand side of the page.  I also added a butterfly and pen nib.

I made the envelope using a Dutch Doobadoo template and either journaling or another photo can be added in here.

Hope you like it :)

Yay it's Friday and I am sharing another card with you. This time made with lots of LDRS Dies and the cute image "Pick your own Tea".  I have coloured her with..... wait for it.... Copics.  Yikes I know it's been years since I picked them up and it was quite scarey.  I have mislaid my distress inks since Christmas so whilst waiting for new brushes to turn up and I decided to dust off the Copics.

The papers are from LDRS Time for Tea paper pad.  I added some Lace Delphine to the bottom of the card.

I used the Dotted Wings for the butterfly border and individual butterfly.

I Love using the SMILE word with shrink plastic.  You can see it just under the kettle charm.

Lots of gorgeous flowers, all listed below.

 I used the leaf die from the Grace Build A Card Die Set for the leaves cut on Pion Design Palette Green II.

Hope you like it:)

Making Memories

Hello everyone,.

I hope all the Mum's out there had a great day yesterday.  I got some craft time in and this is the result.  I have used the most beautiful papers, Pion Design's Days Gone By.  My base layer and die cuts are using the Pion Palette Dusky Pink II and Green II.

I used the Magnolia Doohickey lacey envelope die to create the openwork filagree corner.

I made the Hellebores flowers using White Foamiran, Whimsy Stamps Hellebores die set and violet tipped stamens.  I also added an acryplic stamp Paris but gave it a whitewas with gesso.

I added some green moss inbetween the flowers, meadow spray and pixie blooms, with a little gesso of course :)  Finished with a vintage seam binding bow and pearl string.

 The Joycraft Butterfly border will be back in stock this week.  If you would like to reserve one, please contact me :)

The mini envelope is from a Magnolia Doohickey, you can pre-order Vol 19 and Vol 20 currently and you will find them HERE.  All other links can be found below.

Hope you like it.

Hello Crafters, I haven't coloured in a while, mainly because I seemed to have lost my inks, lol.  How you ask?  I don't know...... I haven't seen them since Christmas, so I don't know if they have been mistakenly put away with the decorations or if they have been thrown up with alot of sorting out I did....  anyway, during my search I found this little lady, which I coloured up before Christmas, lol.  She is an LDRS Creative image by Polkadoodles called "Tea-riffic" and is currently on SALE!  Yes, SALE!  All links at the end of the post.

I used the Fancy Circles, Allifair Build a card, Fancy Rectangles and Layers all by LDRS Creative as well as the image Tea-riffic and the Afternoon Tea paper pad

Of course it wouldn't be a card by me if I didn't add some embellishments, right?  So we have a Fantasy Chipboard Borders, more on the way, Twigged shabby white heart, Little Love teapot charm, wax cord in white, hybrid tea roses, meadow spray in white, rose buds, minature gardenia, pixie blooms.  I also used the flower die from the Allifair build a card die set to make a little flower and added a pearl centre.

I added medium 3D balls.

Hope you like it :)
