Live & Love Crafts DT Card

Hi everyone I am so sorry I'm late, my darling hubster took me away for a romantic night in a luxury B&B as a surprise, first night away on our own in over 26 years. It was a complete surprise which I didnt know about til Friday, oh it was fabulous. We didnt get back til dinner time today & I didnt even have my card finished. So I've never worked so quickly on a card. 
Anyhoo's here is my card based on 'White As Snow'.
I have used Pion's new winter papers, I lurve these soooooooo much. The image is also from this collection as well.

The flowers I have sprayed with white florist spray to soften the colours, make them more muted so they dont take too much focus from the gorgeous image. Of course the 'Fir Cone' has 'Snowtex' on it, as does the snowflake die.

The tree I had cut out weeks ago, covered with snowtex then sprinkled with lots of glitter............boy is it sparkly.

There is 'Cheese Cloth' & a 'Mini Canvas Bag' under there somewhere lol, there is also a tag inserted into the bag which I then attached seam binding bows & some bells to it. Of course it need a winters angel looking over them all & dashings of white gesso here & there lol.

Well thats it from me I'm off to my eldest sons to see my family as I've missed them, I've only been away for one night lol.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend, take care.
Hugs Vicky xxxxxx

Deep Ocean Challenge DT Card - Vintage

Hello everyone how are you all? I've been longer at the gym today without realising so I'm running a teensy bit late with my DT post. Its those weights, they are addictive lol.

Okie doke, so we have a brand new challenge over at Deep Ocean & this fortnight the theme is........
.........yep one of my favourite themes. I have made a Vintage Love card for an Anniversary.
I have used a beautiful Pion image called 'Romance', I lurve Pion Vintage Images. This one I distressed a little, inked with pumice stone & machine stitched around it.

I've added a Heart Shaped doily & then cut out some corrugated cardboard in a heart shape then covered it with Gesso. Added flowers & some MB dies.

This is the inside, I've added heart shaped doilies & card to the top & bottom. The bottom is to write on & the top I will add a romantic verse. The butterfly is a MB die.
Papers are Pion 'Rose & Ocean Of Roses' from the Studio Of Memories collection which has now be these will be gone when Sandy has sold all of her stock.

I've used White Silky Crush ribbon which is so gorgeous IRL, you get this ribbon from the Ribbon Girl here. The Bronze Metal thingy I got from Live & Love Crafts last year & the gorgeous scrummy bling in the centre is from my stash.

I added a Mini Canvas Bag & made an homemade tag to go inside, the charm is from LLC & I added a heart shaped pearl & a touch of Gesso. I tied the tag with White Seam Binding also from The Ribbon Girl.
The beautiful lace I've added is called 'Constance' & I've added Shabby Rose Organza Trim on top.
The 'Bark Heart' & the 'Love Heart Clip' are also from Live & Love Crafts.

Well thats it from me hope you will join for our 'Vintage' challenge this fortnight.

Thank you for stopping by it really means a lot.

Live & Love Crafts DT Card

Hello everyone yay its the weekend, ya gotta lurve the weekends.
Ok so I'm here with this weeks theme which is Checks/Stripes, I have gone for checks. I actually made the base of this card beginning of this week but only finished it last night when I finally chose an image lol. Its usually the other way around for me lol.
I have used gorgeous Maja Design papers for this one.

I have added a beautiful resin charm which you can just see, for some reason my camera hasn't picked things up very well. On the tag there is a 'Butterfly ClipS' which are on special here right now.

A better look at the papers inside the card. For the shape I used a Go-Kretae die.

I have used a Saturated Canary image for this one, I lurve this image, She is a Little Darlings stamp called 'Puppy Luv' but I've just used one of the stamps. I coloured her with distress markers.

There is also 'Cheese Cloth' under all there somewhere lol. The tag also has a Stempelglede sentiment on it. All links to products used are below.

Well thats it for me I'm off to the gym now build some mus-kulls ;0)
