Another thank you card

Hi guys, I'm back today with my card for Love to craft and create, this was the last and third card I made for Tegan's teachers/ helpers when she left her reception class,
I again used this gorgeous paper Lazy Evening from the Never Ending Summer collection by Lemoncraft, using both sides, they distress on the edges fantastically too which as you know is something I like to do,
I used the same wood effect side of the paper for the inside of the gorgeous Scrapiniec Royal rectangle frame, I then coloured the outside with some vintage photo distress ink too,
Underneath the floral display I used a Agateria inkspots stencil with some modeling paste,
I then used some of the fabulous twine Monika sells in her online store too, I really find twine so useful!!!lol
Edited to add, Monika now has the Scrapiniec thank you chipboard, now too,
My leaves and flowers are handmade as is the bird which I made using air dry clay and a mould,
Do check out Monikas fabulous range of products, 
Happy Crafting!!

with the theme this week which is flower scent,
This gorgeous Tilda bringing flowers goes well with this theme I thought, again I've coloured with my copics with hints of liquid pearl added here and there too,

As you can also see I added a strip of film strip and some of the fabulous Scrapiniec chipboards too,
I used a tag from one of the papers and finished it off with some white vintage seam binding,, yet more flowers finish off that side too,
Tilda has Ranger white opaque highlights on her cheeks too,

Summertime fun

Hi guys, I'm back today with my inspiration for 
I love these beautiful papers with their delicate patterns and gorgeous colours by Craft and You Design - my wedding 12 x 12, they also distress beautifully,

I then added some of the beautiful lace in white and cut down some of the Wycinanka - Valentines Day background too, this I've kept in their natural colour,
The beautiful image is by All Dressed up called Fairy Swing, we went to a park the other day with Tegan and I had a little swing too, do you know how lovely it was to swing again for the first time in years!! talk about small things, lol
anyway back to the image she's coloured with my distress re-inkers and I added a few sequins here and there too,

The gorgeous flower is one of the new ranges of daises and I also used some of the new berries Monika has in her store too, do check these and all the gorgeous goodies out,

Lastly I cut out a tag, added some more lace and some of the fabulous light pink twine too,
 all dressed up facebook - add ribbon or lace
Happy Crafting!!

Summertime and Strawberries

Hi guys, I'm back today for 
with our theme this week which is your favourite season,
mine is Summer, with Strawberries, yum yum
Just wish we had more long sunny days, we have had a lot of dark, wet weather since the kids broke up for the school hols,
Anyway I made my card using the gorgeous new paper collection by Maja Design

I thought Tilda working in the Garden went fabulously with this and so hacve coloured her in those colour ways too, with my copics,

An album for you

Over at 
Monika has some gorgeous products in her shop and some of them are these fabulous albums, which you can decorate as much or as little as you wish,
I chose to decorate the front with the gorgeous  papers from the Lavender Garden collection by Craft and You Design, these papers are just fantastic and as you can see thick enough to distress on the edges too,
I then used one of the beautiful Boheme borders by Wycinanaka which i have kept in their natural colour,
I also used some of the fabulous twine Monika sells, so loving twine at the minute!! it's so useful,
an odd sequin is dotted here and there too,
Underneath my floral display is a layer of lace, think yiu can just see it peeking out above,
I hand made the flowers from the Botanic Orchid stamps and dies by Heartfelt Creations and coloured them with my copics to match in with the colours of the papers,

 I hand cut the leaves, then scrunched them slightly and added a little glossy accents here and there on them too,
closer view of my flowers, leaves, sequins and the lace trim,
Some hand made air dry clay butterflies and a frame finish it off , then I added a little interest with some dots made using waterd down gesso, why not have a go at decoration one yourself they are great fun!! and make a beautiful present for someone,
Happy Crafting!!
