True Love

Sooooo, this is the last of the cards I had made up before packing up, but we have good news - we have a moving date - 6th August, and we a moving to Ilkley.  Cannot wait!

Anyway, this is the card I made for my cousin's wedding from myself.  I think, as well as being a good wedding card, it would also make a nice anniversary, valentines or engagement card.

I made this card using a large sentiment stamp from LOTV.  I used lilac embossing powder to heat emboss onto kraft card (I like the effect of this).  I then added some faux stitching around the edge of the pagel with a white gel pen.

I layered this panel onto some gauze and then layered this onto the backing panel.

To make the backing panel, I wrapped some LOTV paper with sheer organza ribbon and then a narrow satin ribbon.  I then layered this onto some kraft card.

To finish the card, I added a small lilac flower button in the top right-hand corner and added drops of liquid pearls to the other corners.  After attaching the true love panel, I added a bow made from the remaining satin ribbon and some white and purple roses from my stash.

I think, once I have got moved and settled etc. I will make up some more of these cards, I a do really like this one and as I've already said, it could be used for a variety of occasions.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Right, I think that might be it until I move - for cards anyway.  I have been on with a couple of sewing projects, but whether I get them finished in time or find time to blog about them,  I couldn't say.

Happy Crafting!

Butterfly Heart

Soooo, I got into work ridiculously early this morning and decided that I didn't feel like doing any work (not until 8 at the earliest anyway), so I would quickly finish writing this blog post that I started about six weeks ago.


This is another of the cards I made for my cousin's wedding at the beginning of June.  Again, a family member took this one (one day they might pay me, but it's not looking likely any time soon).

I made this card using a new die I got at LOTV.  I wasn't going to the shop to buy anything like this (I just went for papers I think), but I saw it and just had to have it.

I used the die on a piece of plain white card and then coloured in the little butterflies using various promarkers.  I then used a cocktail stick behing the butterflies to push them out and make them 3D.

I added some faux stitching with a brown pen and the wrapped the panel eith some twine before attaching to a panel of kraft card.  I then stamped two LOTV tags using brown ink and attached these to the card.

Voila!  One very effective card me thinks.  Also great for valentines, anniversaries, engagements - just change up the colour of the butterflies and the backing card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:


I still have a couple more projects to share with you that I finished before packing up and fingers crossed we hear about a house today.  We put in an application for one two weeks ago and they're now on with the references and checks, so hopefully I will have good news and a moving date very soon, so I can get on with crafting again . . . yay!

Happy Crafting!

Summer Wedding

Soooo, this is one of the last cards I made before I had to pack up my craft room and put aside my crafting for a while - still no date, so still no end in sight and still no return of my sanity (it is really being tested without being able to escape to craft).  I'm also struggling with this blogging, as I have no internet access at my mother's and work's is dodgy at best.


Anyway, I made this for a member of my family to give to my cousin, who got married a couple of weeks ago.

I already, randomly, had the image coloured up (in Promarkers) and I thought that my LOTV perfect pair papers would make a lovely wedding card, especially these ones as they look as though they have little hearts for flowers.

I don't think I followed a sketch, but I can't really remember.

I stamped with pink distrss ink a little flourish in oppposite corners, stamped a sentiment onto the image panel and then added some little paper roses to finish the card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:


I have a few more cards to share with you, but will do so slowly due to lack of internet access and I don't know when I will have a craft room to get creating again.

Happy Crafting!
