Friendship in a window


Hello everyone and welcome to another week. Today I have created a different type of card for you. I have created some foamiran flowers with the lovely Lade E dies :)






This is a farewell card for a dear friend of mine who is also a work colleague. I wanted to create something to show her that friendship lasts forever.





All things I have used are in the shop links to them are at the end of the post.





I have backed up the window die with the lovely Pion Design images with lovely quotes and pictures...this says 'friends are the sunshine of life'. You get different images or quotes and they are perfect to use for different ocassions.


Not sure if you spotted the lovely hyacinth flowers we have in the shop but I felt it matched this lovely Pion design paper to a tee so I used one today on my project.


I have sprayed the white foamiran flowers with the glitter mist spray and used white gesso on the window.



I have to admit that lilac/mauve/purple are my favourite colours so you will be seeing a lot of my creations with this colour.... hopefully you like it too 

XOXO

To have and to hold...


Hi everybody good morning hope you are all having a wonderful day. Another week flew by and it's wedding season again :)

Sharing with you today another Wedding Goatbox but this time I am using the three layered one with inserts.

I have lots of photos to share with you so I hope you read till the very end!




For the lid I have used the Prima flowers, a foamiran flower I created and a Scrapinice frame with butterfly and love with arrow chipboard on the top


I have used lace around the lid to give it a vintage look


In the middle I have used this chipboard winter gate from Scrapiniec and placed flowers on both sides


This is how it looks open....very hard to picture all the layers :)


Every leaf of this box has been created differently no side is the same.


I have also used a lot of silver grey mist spray


This gwendolyne lace is to die for :)


From within the four inserts I placed a tag made out of kraft paper





I have fussy cut some of the motifs on the beautiful Mintay Marry Me papers



I have done the same here using some natural sisal at the back.


This bloomar chipboard frame fitted perfectly in one of the sides and I have stamped a sentiment on the inside. I have also used white gesso.


I have gone round one of these lovely square die cuts with some pom pom lace


This is another Bloomar chipboard frame with lovely hearts around it


I hope you have enjoyed looking at this wedding box and I hope I have inspired you to create something similar.

TOMIC Challenge #3 - May Flowers

Hello everyone, 1st May is here and it's a Public Holiday here today.

The sun is shining, the sea is nice and fresh and I would love to go swimming only if I had some time...

Sharing with you my card for the TOMIC challenge number 3 - May Flowers





I've gone for pastel colours and combined most of them together.



Tilda has been coloured with prisma pencils on kraft paper. I have used a Magnolia sentiment and a scrapiniec border around the image to try and give it some dimension.


Lady E die under the flowers over the chipboard frame and some lovely Wild Orchid Crafts flowers too.


I have purchased the lovely Tilda Tag and it's hiding behind the image.


The butterfly is a rubber stamp from Stempelglede

Off to enjoy some family time.... hope you enjoy your day and am back with you tomorrow with something different xxx

XOXO

Easter wishes

It's my day to showcase what I have created for this month :)

I have used some lovely papers from Magnolia (I have lots of them and am finally plucking up the courage to cut through them to use :)

I have coloured in Tilda with Rose Basket from the Pink Lemonade collection in 2014.




I have used distress ink reinkers on Langton paper



Have used lots of doohickeys from Vol 8 of Doohickey - basically the wire mesh and the rabbit are both from that collection.


I have used a heart chipboard on the top left corner and added on some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.


Have used the Tilda Tag in a pocket with vintage seam binding in purple.


A little birdhouse charm just under the flowers and some stickles over the project to complete it....

and I wish you all a Happy Easter

eat lots of chocolate and cakes :)

XOXO
Claire

Polkadoodles time...



Hi everybody hope you're having a great start to your day!

I am here with you today with a different card as today for the first time I have coloured in this lovely Ruby Hey There stamp.

Isn't she gorgeous :)


I have coloured her in with Prisma Pencils on our smooth Neenah Desert Storm paper .... at the moment I am into pencils more than copics or distress inks.


Paper is from stash as well as flowers.


I have used a heart die to decorate around this gorgeous lady and added a sentiment die saying 'I Love You'.


Can you spot the Magnolia Doohickey Insta Stripes they turned out nicely in the composition of this card.

Love the red and black and white combo on this one and Polkadoodles you rock :)

You can participate in our challenges with any stamp from our store now from Magnolia or Polkadoodles so what are you waiting for? Remember you are in to win a lovely prize from the store

Spring is in the air......



Hello everyone hope you are having a great week :)

Back today with my entry for TOMIC and a reminder that you are in a chance to win a prize from Magnolia by participating in our monthly challenge.

This month's theme is Spring + use one Magnolia die at least.

I am loving your entries so far :)


Today I have created a card with the gorgeous Olive Tilda from the Little Italy Collection!




I have coloured her with distress inks and tried to achieve a vintage look with my card


I have used some lovely papers by Magnolia....yes Magnolia has a lovely range of papers you can use.




I have used most dies from Vintage Box 1 and Box 3 for my card


The frame around Tilda is a die I had been meaning to use. I still have so much stuff I haven't used in my die stash....must use it all :)



I have cut out two butterflies one on the postmark stamp and one on the metal cabochon I have used.



Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and have used some lavender pearl drops around my card as well.


Lace is from stash as well as that ceramic round cabochon with butterfly.

Hope to have sent some inspiration your way and hope to see more of your creations coming in for our challenge.

Lots of Love,
Claire
