The Curator

Hi there!

Ive been tucked up in the house as its so warm out there! Hiding in the air con perfect time to craft!

The card I am here with today is for the Saturated Canary Facebook Challenge. The image I used is 'The Curator' and can be bought here at Saturated Canary. I love this image.

So I coloured the image with Copics and used papers from the ever gorgeous Maja. I went with the greens and yellows as kinda reminded me of a museum colour blend, and I wanted it to look like she had a uniform on. I used dies from Magnolia and Tim Holtz- the notebook die is awesome and this also kinda went with my museum theme, they always have a notebook right?.

I distressed the papers and edged them, the image and the die cuts with DI 'Vintage Photo' to give it a old kinda look.

On the sign post I used Kaisercraft mini alpha's to spell out ' Precious to me' as thats what they look after isnt it, precious things. The flowers are from WOC and Kaisercraft.

The lace is from Live and Love crafts and the green gingham ribbon is from my stash. To finish off I added some burnt red flat-back pearls.

Hope you like her!

Pure, white love..


I am back today with a card that was literally a total off the hook one! I wasnt sure what direction I was going but it just clicked into place! Phew!

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges-

Bunnyzoe Challenge blog- Hearts
Magnolia Down Under Challenge blog - Bingo (bottom line- white only, shape card, make own embellies)
Marvelous Magnolia Challenge blog - Love
Tilda's Town  - Be my Valentine
The Ribbon Girl challenge blog- Magnolia only challenge - seeing spots
Lovely hAnglar or sweet Magnolia - Spots or stripes

Ok. So for this card there is no fancy papers, just good old white card stock from Kaisercraft. The shape of the card is cute from a Go Kreate die. I used a Cuttlbug embossing folder of dots and embossed the two top layers of the card and also the die of the bow, hearts, and birds (all from Magnolia dies). I wanted to do something different for the spots challenges so thought this was cute and got to admit its one of the few embossing folders I use a lot.

The image is 'Bonny Tilda' and was another of the first Magnolia's I bought. Now its been a while since I cracked out the Distress inks. I stayed with the white only theme and embossed the image with white powder and coloured Tilda with the DI's. Usually i pop back in and colour the eyes but I kinda liked this one the way it is, so decided to leave it as it gives it a more angelic look and makes it ethereal look.

Now i am OBSESSED with the poinsettia die from the Magnolia doohickeys. I used more white card stock from Kaisercraft and shaped them to curl a bit. I added Stickles 'Frosted Lace' to the edges just to make the pop a bit. On the centre of the flowers I used a pearl to hold them together on one a glittered pearl on another.

The lace that is tied through the heart dies is from The Ribbon Girl and the flowered lace along the bottom is from Live and Love crafts. I used a pin also from Ribbon girl. The die behind the image is from La La Land crafts. To finish off I added some clear rhinestones.

I hope you like my card.

Love and Marriage...

Hiya everyone!

Hope you are all good? Its really hot again here which is strange to say as being English I still think of this time of year as cold....although I am LOVING the storms that we have here in the Pilbara; thunder, lightening the whole 9 yards lol!

I am here today with a card that was made a) for my fab hubby and b) to enter a magazine call. And I made it!!! So will post pics when the magazine is in my hot little paws.

The challenges that I would like to enter my card into are the following-

Simply Magnolia  - Anything goes
Allsorts challenge blog - Lace and Pearls
In the Pink - Pink and pearlie
Loves Rubberstamps challenge blog - Letter 'B' - mines for Bride
Marvelous Magnolia challenge blog - Love
Paradise of Magnolia- Two or more characters
We Do Doobadoo - Romance
Tilda's Town - Be my valentine
Bunnyzoe Challenge blog- Hearts- at the bottom, on the side of the sentiment

So for this card I made a Criss cross card which i really do love making. I love that you get two opportunities to embellish. I used the Magnolia 'Loving Bridal Couple' and coloured them with Copics. The papers are from Maja. I used lace, and the pink flourishes from Prima 'Say it with crystals'. The flowers are again a mix of WOC and Kaisercraft. The ribbon with the butterflies on is from a Kaisercraft range for a few year back that ive been keeping lol. The ribbon across the middle from Live and Love crafts.

I used pearl brads to make the little straps that you use to pull the inside of the card out. I added Kaisercraft rhinestone hearts to the sentiment banner at the bottom. The sentiment is from a La La Land stamp. The trim on the bottom is also from Live and Love crafts. On the inside you will also see another sentiment from a La La Land stamp and another rhinestone heart. Finally to the flowers I added a crystal pin.

Hope you like my card!

GDT at Time for a Magnolia Challenge- 2nd Post!

Hey there everyone!!!!

I am here today with my 2nd post as GDT for Time for Magnolia Challenge. For this challenge we have an awesome one- Tilda or Edwin in combination with a Background or Text stamp. Why not hop over to Time for a Magnolia Challenge  and see what the others have been up to!

Now for this challenges I masked the gorgeous 'Edwin with Derby Hat' with the 'Afternoon Tea Plant'. Now if you look carefully at Edwin you will see I have masked the mustache from Little London  'Afternoon Tea Rose set'. I LOVE how this turned out!!!! He looks so debonair! I wanted the scene to be like a walk in an English garden.

Now the card itself came about as a card for a 70th Birthday card for a family friend back in England who I have grown up with. Hence the red inked wooden '70'.

The papers are from the awesome Graphic 45 'Proper Gentleman', think these suited our Edwin really well. I coloured Edwin and his garden with Copics. I used dies from Magnolia and Tim Holtz. Out of all the papers  think these are my fave from the collection, I love the little bowler hats!!! and Edwin has his hat and cane!!!!

The wooden mustache is  from Kaisercraft. I used black rhinestones and some twine through the tags.

I hope you like my card and scene!

So for this challenge I used the cutest little lady. I the old school vintage images and the feather dance is right up my street!!! She is beautiful. I wanted to keep it very vintage and kinda classy so I used the beautiful papers from First Edition Paper collection 'Noir et Chic.

The lace is from Spotlight and I found these fab tassels and black ribbons in there too, arnt they sweet. I wanted the Feather Dance to play a main part so I used white feather around the side of the main image.
