Hand Bag Card

Hi everyone,

Hope you are enjoying the weather be it hot or our winter cold, my family in the UK are melting with the heat, I think it was the hottest summer since 1979 - OMGoodness doesn't that sound such a long time ago LOL..

I have a lovely card that I made from a design that came with my new Crafters Companion Ultimate Pro board, I loved the design as soon as I saw it - very "Girly" and I bet I will be using this a lot for family and friends birthdays coming up soon.

It is the Quilt & Craft Fair in Melbourne this weekend and I know that Debbie Pamment is going to be there, she has recently celebrated a birthday and as we haven't meet before but emailed lots, I thought I would make her a card, we both live around the Melbourne area (different suburbs) I thought it was too good an opportunity to miss.

Mini Tilda with Two Rosettes

I love Fairies, Butterflies and anything Pinky/Mauve.
I've used purple card stock from Paper2, the Handbag design was quite easy to make. 
For the embellishment I placed a paper doily under a Spellbinders circle die cut with a white paper daisy flower (Paper2) coloured with Copic markers.

 Memory Box Chloe butterfly (large) is edged with Kaisercraft Aubergine ink, the smaller butterfly Marianne design #CR1205 again coloured with aubergine ink, finally the flourish is Joy crafts Vintage Borders 6002/0163.
 A gem on the daisy and Ranger Star Dust stickles to add a little sparkle. 

I think Tilda sits just perfectly on the butterflies.

Inside the card I have used vellum with a Birthday greeting stamp from my stash.
Whoops, I forgot the little scrap of ribbon for the handle -  

I hope you like this little effort and thanks for stopping by.

Buttons and Bows

Hi everyone,

The last 2 weeks have been really busy, with the school holidays, as well I've had 2 unwell little  granddaughter's, who are now better and back at creche. We took our grandson and his Mum to Melbourne, we went on the Tourist Trams as Jamie loves any sort of transport, cars, trucks & racing cars.   Jamie's Wish with the Starlight Foundation at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne was to meet Michael Schumacher! His wish was fulfilled and Jamie with his parents were very lucky to meet Michael a few years ago when he came over for the Melbourne Grand Prix the year before he retired from Formula 1 racing, it was such a thrill for Jamie.

Anyway enough of my family (I love them all to bits) lol.. 
Here is a card that I am going to enter into Midweek Magnolias Challenge, this has my favourite Tilda on it,

"Tilda with Hawaii Flower"

I have made flowers for this card with cheese cloth which was cut with Spellbinders Rose Creations dies, I put Gesso on the cheese cloth, left it to dry while I cut out more of the rose shapes in Pink sparkling net, layered them together with some mini heart brads then I had the fun of scrunching them up into a flower shape - it was fun, I haven't done that before, its a first!
I think they look quite nice on the card..

Forget me not Card

Hi everyone,

I have a lovely new card featuring Tilda with Love, I have used Pion Design 'Vintage garden' so I decided to be a little bit more adventurous, I have cut out some of the elements from the sheet to make a few statement tags, 

"Tilda with Love"

I really love "Forget Me Not" flowers (takes me back to my Grandmothers garden) and I decided to try to make some of those little flowers as a highlight on the card rather than roses.
I found in my flower stash these cute little ones which I coloured with Versa Magic inks and a dash of Ranger Star Dust stickles, I threaded them on to a rose bud stem with some leaves behind and a few stamens to look like "forget me not" buds, I am really pleased with how they have turned out, I hope you like it too..

Pion Designs "Vintage Garden"
Watercolour card stock
Copic markers
Versa Magic inks
Spellbinders dies
