Just Magnolia DT - Sketch

Morning my crafting buddies! I'm back with my second post for the day and it's to share with you my DT card for the Just Magnolia challenge. This week we have a really fab sketch for you to follow so please do come and join us! Once again I have used First Edition Papers called "Sweet Owl" and I just luv this colour combo.

Have coloured my darling Tilda in with copics and used stickles for the bottom of her dress. The ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl prize I won and the heart charm is also a blog candy win from Kathrin Kruemel. The flowers are a combination from Magnolia and Wild Orchid.

Hope you will take the time to pop over to the Just Magnolia blog for some awesome inspiration by my very talented teamies. I still have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming being on a dt with such talent and using my absolute favourite stamps ever! Thanks for stopping by and see you in three weeks. Lotsa luv, hugs xxx

Totally Papercrafts DT- Sketch

Morning All!! Woohoo, only one more sleep and I'm leaving on a jet plane hehe! Getting excited now to see my Mommy and all my family and friends back home. Will miss you all in blog land though but three weeks goes so fast and before we know it I'll be back. Anyhooo enough of me waffling and onto today's card which is for Totally Papercrafts and this week the lovely Lols chose to use a sketch done by Sue. I just couldn't resist using a Tilda again rofl! I've actually neglected this sweetie so I decided to ink her up. Loved this sketch, thanks Sue! The dps are by First Edition Paper and the pad is called Up, up and away. I'm really loving all the first edition papers as they're just so scrummy and beautifully embossed and glittered.
As always I've coloured in with Copics and used some stickles for a bit of bling. The heart buttons are from my stash as are the pearls. The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly which sadly I will never be able to use again as my bloomin parrot flew onto my craft desk and ripped it to shreds grrrr!!! The cherry blossoms are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to join us over at Totally Papercrafts and show us what you can do with the sketch. I'll be back a little later with my Just Magnolia dt card so until then lotsa luv, hugs xxxx

Charisma Cardz DT - Wedding / Anniversary

Morning Folks!! Hope my fellow crafting buddies in the UK are enjoying the lovely warm weather we're having at the moment, fingers crossed it'll stay this way! Well today sees the start of a new challenge theme over at Charisma Cardz and this week the lovely Clare has chosen the theme of "Weddings / Anniversaries". Fortunately for me I have a family wedding at the end of the month and so I made this card just for my special cousins! I have used GCD papers "Ella Blue" which has a gorgeous silver foiling print on but sadly not visible in the pic and then I have used a strip of gorgeous embossed and glittered vellum by Papermania over the one side. The paper doily is from Joanna Sheen and the swirl is a doohickey die.
I decided to leave the bridal couple in white and just added a bit of grey for shading. The bow I made from silver lace which was bought at Dunelms and I've layered some tulle behind it. The huge pearl brad is from Magnolia. The butterflies are also Magnolia stamps which I have drowned in stickles rofl! The blooms are from Papirloftet and Wild Orchid Crafts. Thanks for stopping by and please do come over to Charisma Cardz and join in the fun with us this week. I'll be back tomorrow with my Just Magnolia and Totally Papercrafts DT cards so until then happy crafting friends. Lotsa luv, hugs xxxxx

Totally Papercrafts DT - One for the Boys

Morning Folks!! Thank goodness the weather is getting better again, thought we'd had our summer and we were back in winter over this past week hehe! Well today sees the start of a brand new challenge theme over at Totally Papercrafts and the lovely Vicky has chosen "One for the boys". I've used one of my new hAnglers, isn't he a Sweetie?! The dps are by First Edition called Up & Away, if you click on the pic to get a larger version you'll be able to see just how lush it is and beautifully glittered.
Went for the plain and simple look here as I thought you can't go too crazy with a man's card. The sentiment is also from this hAngler set and all I've used are a few wooden buttons and as always I've coloured in with my Copics.
