Cupid draw back your bow...


Hi!

Hows everyone's weather? well here its gone from so hot and humid up in the 40s a few weeks back to storms....yup 15 degrees here but heck being English still got our shorts on much to the dismay of the aussies!!!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

lovely hAnglar or sweet Magnolia- Anything goes
Deep Ocean Challenge blog- Hearts

Soooo its still the month of luvvvveee lol but this card wasnt made for a valentines but for a wedding anniversary so still luuuuuvvvve...and it was again for my lovely bestie so glad I can finally blog it as she would have caught on if I hadnt have waitied!!

The card is from a tutorial by the awesome Norma Lee and can be found at this link Swing card. Its a lovely card template and really does look cute.

Now for this I used a Magnolia image on the inside...'Cupid Tilda with heart arrows' I had been waiting for her to get in stock somewhere and finally got her and I must admit I do love her. I coloured her with Distress inks. The cupid on the front...now I did warn you in the last blog post that this would be getting quite the work out and here he is again. I love him die cut in black.

The papers are from Maja Design the gorgeous release last year called 'Vintage Romance'.

The sentiment is from Magnolia ink and one of my faves they have done.

To add some sparkle I used flat back pearl hearts to the card, just dotted around on the front and on the hairband of Tilda on the inside. To finish off I popped some strips of clear rhinestones around the edge of the front and inside.

Hope you have a great rest of the week.

A fine romance...


Hey there!!

Can you believe it is Feb already!!! like really!!! oh my days SLLLLLLOOOOOOW down will ya 2017! geez!

But as its Feb we all know its the month of luvvvvve....and my title is from one of my fave songs that Ella Fitzgerald sang...which I will be singing for the rest of the day now no doubt!!! lol

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Marvelous Magnolis Challenge blog- Love is..
Craft Heaven Shop Inspiration challenge blog- Love is all around
Magnolia Forever Challenge blog- Love
Midweek Magnolias- Show some love
Paradise of Stamps- Valentines Day

So for this card I thought I would try a couple of different things. first I used Prisma pencils to colour with...these are very new to me but loving them so far but also a new card shape a waterfall card which can be found at the following link.... Waterfall Card Tutorial and its a really cute way of putting a lot of images into a card..I have a hard time deciding which to use so this is perfect for me lol. But also, it really is compact but packs creative punch.

The papers I used are from Pion Design, they are the Valentine collection from last year and one of my faves for sure. I used this all the way through on the card along with good old Kaisercraft cardstock for the body of the card.

The bling is flat back rhinestones and pearls. The tag is from a Magnolia die and I used some mini alphas to spell out pull. On this and around the images I added some flat back pearl hearts. On the wings of Tilda on the front and the heart she is holding I used stickles glitter glue to and some sparkle.

Now lets talk about cupid....isnt he divine!!! He is a Joycraft die and can be found at Noor! Design UK. I just love love love him! I used him three times in this card...one on the front, the outside part and then again in the middle of the card in red. I feel he might be popping up a lot for Valentines and Christmas cards lol. On the cupid on the front I added a lovely sparkly heart. Four rhinestone brads finish off the card.

Hope you have a great weekend ahead.

Pink pink pink

Hi everyone!!

Well I said I would be back with a new crafty post and here I am! I had to wait as it was a birthday card for one of my bestest friends so couldnt let her see!!!

I would like to enter my cards into the following challenges -

All about Magnolia Challenge blog- All about anything goes
Magnolia Forever challenge blog- Celebrate
Paradise of Magnolia- Anything goes
Midweek Magnolias- Anything goes
lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolias- Anything goes

Well this card was a bday card for my lovely friend and it was a special bday but I am not going to say the number lol! I used papers from Pion design Easter collection from last year and they are simply delicate and very feminine.

The Tilda images are both colored with Distress Inks. The shape of the card is created using a My Favourite Things Flip flop card and they come in a couple of different shapes. I love the interactive part it makes a card so much more exciting I think. So for the rest of the card I used dies from Magnolia.

On the inside of the card I used one of my new obsessions- stencils. I got this super cute butterfly stencil from Noor! Design UK and some structure paste which can also be found at Noor!design UK. I added some pale pink embossing powder and left it to set. When set popped a couple of flat back pearls on odd ones of the butterflies.

The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley who have some beautiful sentiments. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

To finish off I popped a couple of pink buttons on the bows.

Hope you have a great rest of the week.

final for 2016...



Hi all

Well can you believe we are a week away from Christmas! heck. And two weeks away from the New year! WOW. So this is my last post for 2016...its been a interesting old year again!

So for the last time this year I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Simply Magnolia - Anything goes
Deep Ocean Challenge blog- Silent Night
Magnolia Forever Challenge blog- Winter
lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia- Anything goes
Midweek Magnolias- Christmas

So this is a new style of card for me for this year, and i do rather love them. Its a peek-a-boo card and the tutorial can be found here Peek-a-boo card with Norma Lee. Such a good tutorial.

The images I used are the Magnolia animals , the little penguin and the little polar bear. They are lovely. I coloured both these little guys with Distress inks. The papers are from Pion Design. I love these and you can feel the peacefulness coming off them, it almost like you can hear the snow falling and that beautiful calmness from these papers.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The star pin I cannot for life of me remember where i got it from. The snowflake charm was in my stash. The lace is from the ever fabulous Noor! Design UK. I also used Structure paste which you can find at Noor! Design UK along with the beautiful white lace I used.

The border die cut is from a Magnolia die and I edged it simply with flat back pale blue pearls.

And that is it!

Hope everyone has a peaceful happy Christmas no matter what you do. Enjoy and I shall see you in 2017 for more crafting adventures.

A-Jolly-Christmas-Blinkie

Snow ball fight *ducks*

DUCK!!!! Yes its a snowball fight! lol well maybe not in real life here but I am sure some of my crafty friends are getting ready to throw a few over the next few weeks/ months!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia- Anything goes
Deep Ocean Challenge blog- Santa is coming to town
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog- Christmas in pastels or tones
Magnolia Forever Challenge blog- Winter
Magnolia-licious challenge blog- Need a little Christmas
Marvelous Magnolia Challenge blog- Anything goes Christmas
Simply Magnolia Challenge blog- Anything goes

so 7 in total!

I used the fabulous twist and pop card tutorial which is from Kaisercraft blog, you can find the tutorial here Twist and Pop. Its such an effective card and always makes people smile. The tutorial is just fabulous too.

I used 'Snow scarf Tilda' from a few releases back....so looks like she is having fun throwing those snowballs!!! I coloured Tilda with Distress Inks. The papers are from the Pion design collection from last Christmas...again the elf got me. I love an elf!

The images inside are from the mini Magnolia collection and they are also coloured with Distress Inks.

Now to the flower...wowzers!!! I love this die! It can be found at the awesome Noor! Design UK and it just cuts so gorgeous. The glitter papers *swoooon* are from my local craft shop....and yes I went back and bought more of them!!

The icicle die can also be found at Noor!design UK, as can the Little Darlings rubber stamps die that features at the top on the front of the card.

On the front I used a brad for the middle of the flower, a clear rhinestone brad. This is on the band that holds the twist and pop in place while closed. I used some velcro on the back of the band so it can open and save sliding over the car.

To finish off I added some Structure past to add texture, and some glitter glue and a pair of gloves charm as you always need your gloves on for a snowball fight!

Hope you have a great week.

Ruddy is shaking is tail feather!

Well hello!!!

WOW peoples we are in December!!! DECEMBER!!!!! Where did that come from!!! heck! So tomorrow me and hubby are going to be wrestling the tree out of the box! Already got the baking under way but heck DECEMBER MAN PEOPLE!!! its just gone so fast 2016!

So I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Simply Magnolia- Anything goes
Deep Ocean Challenge blog- Santa is coming to town
Magnolia Forever Challenge blog- Winter
Magnolia-licious Challenge blog- Need a little Christmas
Noor! Design UK challenge blog- Sparkle
Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge blog- Christmas in tones or pastels

So I made this card a few weeks ago for my fabulous friend Bek who I met when we lived in Tom Price. I have been hanging on to blog it until she received it and now she has here we go!

I used the image 'Little Rudolph' from Magnolia and he is one of my fave animal images that they have done....ever! The pure joy on his face, that little smile is just so adorable! I coloured the little fella with Distress Inks.

I decided to make him into a shaker card as I think he would have a blast playing around in the sparkles! I used glitter and beads as the shaker material. The shaker pouch is from Impression Obsession.

The papers....ohhhh I love these...and again I have been hording them for the right card, the right image and finally it fell into place. These papers are from the Shabby Chic paper collection which you can get from Noor!Design UK. I have to admit I ordered three of these pads lol! I love that pale/pastel / soft blue.

The die cuts around the image are from Magnolia Ink. The shape of the card is from Go Create. I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The winter die cut on the bottom of the snow globe is from Noor!Design. The snow globe shape and the deer are both from Impression Obsession.

Now...one of my fave embellies that I have also been hording (see how much I think of you Bek that I handed over one of these lol!) is the darling reindeer paperclip that I attached to the top corner of the tags. This i got from Stampin' Up last year.

Finally, I tied through some bright red shabby chic binding to finish off.

Hope you have a great weekend.
