Dotty Invitation

Hi Creative lovelies,
Todays card is a take on the card in my last post where I used a 6x6 card blank but made it look bigger by going outside the card area using die cuts.

I've coloured Invitation Tilda using the no lines technique in black & white

The white vine flowers are Heartfelt Creations Open Vintage Floret Stamps, I stamped them onto vellum using versa mark ink and added white embossing powder.
The paper is papermania and the edges are inked with TH Distress Pumice stone ink
The die cuts are GoKreate Frilly Frame #7
Spellbinders Squares
Memory Box Spring Border and Pinwheel Posie.
Doo Hickey Swirl butterfly.
Other embellishments are
Papermania silver shimmer dome stickers
Pearl spray
Coloured pearls
Lace and ribbon
Paper flowers 
Jane's Choice-Black & White
Anything Goes

A 3D winter card

Good morning creative peeps,
Well its been awhile since my last post to be honest I just haven't been in the blogging mood and I don't know why!? I have been trying out a 3D paper piecing technique with my magnolia stamps and this is what the snowy Tilda came out like... 
I stamped Tilda on white card several times then coloured, cut out and embossed on the reverse of each little piece. Die cut a circle of kraft card and stamp Tilda on it, I used Pin flair glue to make them 3D.
I should warn you this technique is addictive!! Lol

The base is a Craftwork Cards 6x6 scalloped edge card blank. I have taken the matting and layering over the top of the fold so the card looks bigger than it is.
Paper is DCWV Linen Closet.
The die cuts are Doo Hickey Christmas Poinsettia and then embossed,
Memory Box Frostyville Border and Pinwheel Posie.
Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish.
Other embellishments are swirl stamp stamped with white acrylic paint
Papermania silver shimmer dome stickers
Pearl stickpin
Crystal droplets
I have added white paint here and there over the embellishments to give a distress look to the card.
Anything Goes

Dangling Tea Pots?

Good morning my lovelies
I hope the sun is shinning where you are today :o)
It's my turn to showcase the amazing yes amazing Tea Dance collection. The collection is so pretty, I had to go to town on this months make. I just love it!
The wall decoration has been made from two pieces of mount board, One with the arch cut out and 3D foamed over the top of the candi.
Complete with dangling tea pot and cups. I've covered both sides with paper and added micro beads to give texture and decoration.
All the edges have been lined with silver glitter.
The bunting and flowers finish it off.
Before I go I just wanted to show a few more project I made using the Tea Dance collection.
 A card made by cutting the top of the flower away from the paper and tucking paper behind it, then add frame and flowers.

Hope you like my projects, I'll pop them on Pinterest so come over and have a look
Happy crafting

The swirly felt flowers are also a die cut memory box rolled rose, just cut out two different colours of felt and roll them together. the other flower I've made is from black tulle. Lace, ribbon bow, pearl string, pin, gems and glitter have also been added to finish the card off.

Sweet pastel birdcage

Hello Creative Peeps

Just stopping by to share a project i made the other day, The inspiration came from this weeks challenge over at MDUC which is to recycle something i used an old cardboard box.

I took the top layer off to reveal the corrugated card underneath, cut it into a birdcage shape and painted it with off white paint.
 I've gone for a pastel yellow and cream theme with the decorations.

The Magnolia cutie is called Princess pea Tilda from the Once upon a time collection 2013, She has been coloured with promarkers & prisma pencils.
The swing is made from a piece of die cut frame and ball chain.
The paper behind Tilda is Kaisercraft vintage timeless.

The large yellow & gold lace flowers are cut from Doohicky flower die and Sizzix hello kitty daisies die
The bunting is cut from a Die-namics die, and held together with jump rings.

Can you see my little felt ladybugs? I just{heart}them cut from Elizabeth craft designs die with cream felt.

Circle of love

Hi my creative lovelies,

Today's make I've made to join in with this weeks challenge over at Lili's Little Fairies as i haven't coloured a LOTV image for sooo long i thought i would colour my favourite 'love grows' stamp and give it the colour splash treatment.

The challenge is 'angthing but a square' so I've gone for a circle. The base circle is chipboard which I've covered in Echo Park paper and attached ribbon to the background to give a different effect. Then I've added braiding around the edge.

I've used a selection of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, the cherry blossoms have been took apart and a card candi has been added for the centre. More ribbon, lace and silver pearl string added at the back of the flowers.


Anything but a square

Love you or valentine

Love and lace
