Moments to Remember

Hi All, so I decided to make an Album.  I decorated all the chipboard pages, leaving the backs plain to add photo's later and any journaling to be added to the decorated pages.   I have used the beautiful Pion Design Days Gone By.  All the links for the products used are as always, at the end of the post.

The Flowers on the front are made from Foamiran, distress inks for coloration, vintage matt white stamens and the Whimsy Hellbore Die Set.

I used a couple of Stempleglede Stamps.  One of them you can see the flourish on the right hand side of the page.  I also added a butterfly and pen nib.

I made the envelope using a Dutch Doobadoo template and either journaling or another photo can be added in here.

Hope you like it :)

Hello everyone!

Sorry, I'm a little late:). 
The world is very much species of roses. The last time I saw something like this. I made this rose with Iranian foamiran and coloured with oil pastels.
I hope you like it:)

See you, Beata:)

That's today's inspiration.
Card from Birdsong papers and on it artistic (I hope so) mess.

I painted this lace with, I think, really brave colour.
I straightened spirals and cut Pleated Ruffle Trim.

I also painted flowers and tangled everything with Sizal.
I put some butterflies on top of everything.

I wish you a great weekend and see you next week.

Maja Design "Celebration"

I'm so excited to be playing with the new papers from Maja Design called "Celebration".  I don't normally use BLACK, cuz it's not so soft and kinda in your face but it seemed rather appropriate in a classic sort of way for this anniversary card.  

Doesn't any celebration card need some straws?!  I think so too!!  LOL!  In my stash I found this puffy feather so I layered some sisal underneath a die cut of Joy's "Clock with swirls", which by the way, is a rather amazing piece!!  I have to hide any cards with feathers as I've learned that if I leave them lying out, someone in the house eats them.  I learned that a long time ago when I came home one day to find my card eaten up by my super sweet cutie cat.  My reaction?  GASP!!!  🙀  I couldn't even get mad at him as it was hours later and how would he know why he was getting into trouble by then.  Lesson learned!  LOL!

I added a clip holding another small pic from the ephemera page, then added a JoyCraft heart and a Fantasy die called "Berry Twig 2".

Thanks for stopping by!!

Fairy Friends

Good Morning,

When I saw the new fairy stamps from Whimsy I just knew I had to get my hands on them, this is my second card using one of the new stamps & this little cutie is called Fairy Friends.

I have coloured up this stamp using Inktense Pencils and have of course added some glitter to her wings, we all know that Fairies have glittery wings right?

I have used Lemon Crafts 12x12 Violet Silence paper pad. I know I've said it before but I do love this paper collection, it's just so pretty & purple lol

Thank you for stopping by & pop back tomorrow for more inspiration from the team

Orange Wild Rose Arrangement

Hi everyone!

Here is a  new floral arrangement from me today I'd like to inspire you with!
This time I will show you some other flower made out of Silk Suite PEACH - my orange wild rose. 

The petals of this wonderful flower were coloured with oil pastels and I simply rolled them between my fingers, to gain that natural looking appearance. You don't need to use any iron! Silk Suite is a soft and stretchable enough material and said in short - perfect for handwork!

Exploring new materials (and thanks to Tracy from Noor! Design U.K.) I found that Fruit Stamens fit perfectly as a flower stigma to my rose. I also added some vintage Matt Heart Head stamens which were coloured in the desire shade. 

My rose is accompanied by some tender daisy flowers made out of Zephyr Silk foam with yellow - orange centers. 

To finish my flower arrangement I threw some greenery in made out of yellow green genuine foamiran tinted with olive green and orange oil pastels.
Hope you like it!

Thank you for coming around!
Have an amazing week!
