Inked Pretty in Aqua.

Hey Lovelies, Happy Sunday. Its time for a new colour challenge at The Ribbon girls. This time its Aqua. I also wanted to combine that with a cute image from Saturated Canary.




I have coloured up Inked Pretty with copics. I wanted the whole card to feel very light and summery, so I just distressed the edges, and layered on white card. I framed the image with a ring of Machine stitching using White Top stitch thread from the Ribbon girls. To add the eclectic layering I have added 2 types of lace (32mm Victoria antiques fine cluny lace, and 32mm Corrissa ivory lace) I added 3mm Aqua Berisford satin and bow on top! kept the flowers all white, except for a pop of Aqua with Rolled Kort and Godt Aqua roses, and ticked a Little Bird cage with heart on in too. All these bits can be found in the Ribbon Girls shop.

The prize this time  is Prize will be £10 voucher for The Ribbon Girl and this cute set of dies from Marianne craftables. 




Thanks for popping in, Have a great day. xx

Wine O'clock time

Hey Lovelies, its been a long time eh?! Sorry about that life got kind of hectic here. I started a part time job a few weeks ago, so I have even less time to craft Boo....Plus I am in the final phase of the mega birthday party of the year. Its gonna be amazin! Hooray! I will share more on that at the end of the month. Its been so much work this year, but I think it may be my best yet!! I will post all the details after the event, and lots of fab pics and makes to share with it!!

Anyway I have a card to share - At last I hear you say :) This is a little creation I made a little while back for Saturated Canary, using one of the special stamps Krista designed for Complete cardmaking magazine. I used Wine O'clock, isn't she lush. I am so going to indulge in a few glasses tonight!



I coloured her with my Copics, and decided to match her up with these lush papers from Maja. I picked out the peach in the floral for all the embellies and flowers. I went to town with all my wine/drink bits. I found a cork screw charm and a model size wine bottle to pop in my flowers, and well given the name of her I had to find a little wooden clock in my stash haha! The beautiful ribbon is Peach seam binding, with a little 32mm Corrissa Ivory Lace from The Ribbon Girls.

Have a great weekend, thanks for popping in. xx

New Saturated Canary and Candibean images release

Hey lovelies, Happy Saturday!! A little treat for you, and a sad good bye for me. I have decided to step down from the Little Darlings team, so this is my last post. I am trying to reduce my design work, so I can spend more time with my family - Beth is growing up so fast, I don't want to miss anything.

Now on to the treat. How would you like some new stamp images? Whilst the team is at the CHA show, we have a whole new set of stamps to showcase. These new stamps will be released on the 31st January so you can get your hand on them soon.

Here are my samples, 1st up is a new Saturated Canary stamp - Gothica.




I coloured her with distress inks, and used the Girlfriend sentiment stamp on the image. I matched her up with Pion Flower Frames. I wanted to get clashing colours so lots of red and purples. The ribbon is Lady Lavender from the Ribbon girls.

Next up is a new Candibean stamp - Grown with love.




I used my copics on her, with lots of glitter touches. The papers are Bildmalarna - Cute Collection  I also popped another of the fabby Girlfriend sentiments for the Vintage affections range on. I arranged the flowers over my fav Lovely View die.

Have a great day all, and thanks for stopping by xx
