Party Pup for LOTV

Hey lovelies, Sniff Sniff this is my last card as GDT for LOTV today. Thank yo guys so much for having me. I have loved playing with all your cute stamps. For my last card I have used Party Pup.

I coloured him up to match these cute Pion papers. Lots of glamour dust added, well it is a party :) I used a Marianne Craftables Stitched Circle die to frame him. I tucked a little tag behind him, and added a few bells with a little Frantage. Hope you all like it. Thanks so much for popping in. xxx

Sitting Tilda

Hey lovelies, Happy Sunday to you! I have a busy day in the craft room planned today with a few projects I need to work on, before I do here is my Totally Tilda card for the new challenge - Sitting Tilda.

I coloured Tilda up with distress inks, I decided to do her in red, before I picked the papers. I normally know what paper I am using before I colour, but I did a few at the same time and  didn't. Then when I came to find papers I realised that all the Red Maja papers I have are very Christmassy looking - Uggg!! So I had to break out the other basket with all sorts of papers in. This is Glitz, Cashmere Dame. I love the florals :)

I have wrapped the papers with 50mm Emily Lace, and Venetian Red Seam Binding from the Ribbon Girls. I wanted to mirror the red and lilacs in the image in the flower arrangements and used a mix of roses, tulips and lilies. I rather like the clash or red and purple :)

Pastel colours and LOTV at the Ribbon Girls

Hey Lovelies, Happy Sunday! I have double excitement for you today as I have 2 cards to post. My 1st is for the Ribbon Girls Colour challenge and this week it's pastels. The second is my GDT card for LOTV. As I love my LOTV images so much they are both LOTV images, I hope you dont mind :)

I have coloured up James bear with distress inks. The papers are scraps from my Maja basket, yes I have a whole basket just for Maja paper bits now, it might be getting out of hand lol! I have used from the Ribbon GirlsWhite top stitch thread, Pink Diamante heart, Pink cotton ribbon, white heart pin, 50mm Ophelia ivory lace, Wooden heart buttons, 11mm Flat back pearls, White button twine, Pink Kort & Godt rolled paper flowers, White Sweetheart blooms, 40mm Daisy.

So on to my second card for LOTV, I used James bear again, he is one of my favorite characters from LOTV. 

I decide to colour up James with  pile of present with copics to see if I could get a sort of distress look. He matched up well with these Maja papers (well what else?!) I popped a Grunge Christmas Sentiment in the floral arrangement, and stamped the edges of the image with Grunge Christmas Postmarks. The Danish blue seam binding was a great match to the papers all finished off with a lovely Snowflake button and natural twine from the Ribbon girls.

Thank you so much for popping in today. Have a great day xxx

LDRS Blackberry Penny

Hey lovelies, Happy Tuesday to you all. It my turn to share some Little Darlings Rubber Stamps inspiration today. I have used one of the cute Candibean images from the last collection - Blackberry Penny

She is coloured with Copics, Well this is the one I did for the packaging, I just loved these colours so much I had to use her on a card! I matched her with Bildmalarn - Cute Collection - I know NOT Maja, I am as shocked as you haha! They are just the perfect colours to go with Penny I though :)

I used some fab Berries I picked up from Live and Love crafts, and teamed them with the super pretty Floribunda Rose and with this lush Lady Lavender seam binding and Wooden Heart button.

Monochrome Tilda

hey lovelies, Happy Sunday! Its time for a new Totally Tilda challenge today, and this time its Monochrome. I haven't done this before so here is my 1st attempt at a Monochrome card, hope you like it.

I have used Distress inks to colour Sneaky Tilda. I actually only used Walnut stain for the whole image to keep in with the Monochrome theme. The papers are scraps from my draw, all Maja I think. I used some cream seam binding, with natural twine and flat bells on the bow. I kept the flowers simple with cream lilies, and chocolate dahlia from the ribbon girls.

We are sponsored by The Ribbon Girl
with a £10 voucher for the store.

Thanks for popping in, have a great day all xxx

I'm a Lili or the Valley GDT! Eeeek!! :)

Morning Lovelies, well this is a super exciting day for me. A little while back I was asked by the lovely Anne if I would like to be a GDT at Lili of the Valley - I had to think about it for a second Of course YES!!! I have been super excited about it since. I hope you like my makes, and thank you so much for asking me Anne xxx

So here is my 1st creation. I have used the super cute new stamp A Fairy on top from the new collection of Christmas stamps.

So I decided she needed to be a vintage Christmas kind of feel, so she is coloured in Distress Inks. I also added a few north pole post marks around the image from the Grunge postmark set. I used some scraps of Maja and Pion Papers mixed together, distressed with walnut stain and machine sewn with White Top Stitch thread. The Sentiment is from the Handwritted Christmas Phrases set. I wrapped the papers in 25mm Hermione Ivory lace and Posie dark red Seam binding. I found these cute Gingerbread men buttons in a local craft shop, how perfect are they, and he is tied on with Natural button twine. I kept the floral arrangement in traditional reds with Red Sweetheart blooms and Floribunda paper roses.
