Are you ready?
It's time for a new challenge over at Stamp and Create..
This month's theme is Love Is In The Air..
It's one of the first Magnolia stamps I bought and it was the very first Tilda I ever coloured..
Wanna see my first Magnolia card?? Click HERE..
It's been almost three years since then and I've gone a long way, don't you think? ;)
I've used one of my GoKreate dies for this card's shape..
The papers are from Maja Design - Vintage Summer and Vintage Spring Basics..
The heart pin is so cute, right?
That small corner is made with some Fimo Air and a homemade mold..
Here's another Magnolia die.. The Tilda Tag.. One of my favourites..
Another thing I can't stop adding to my projects is the doily..
I love my Vintage Seam Binding too..
I've used one of the Marianne Design dies under the image but there are only a few loops peeking out.. All the rest is covered..
I've used all kinds of flowers and flower sprays for this card.. They are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I Am Roses and some from a candy I won some time ago..
I've applied some gesso all over them and on other parts of the card..
There are also lots of pearls..
I've used Frantage all around the image too..
All the paper edges are distressed and machine sewn..
The sentiment is also from Magnolia.. From the Raising The Ceiling And Right Through My Heart Collection 2010.. It's glued on a small wooden spool.. So cute..
The Love You vintage trinket from Prima is one of the most wonderful details if you ask me..
And there's something else I wanna talk you about..
You all know how much I love lace, right?
Well I've discovered an amazing Etsy store called Suhafuha filled with gorgeous laces, trims, shabby flowers etc. The lace I've used for this card comes from that shop..
Please click HERE to take a look to all the wonderful stuff Saba stocks and when you place your order (cos' I know you won't resist) please let her know I sent you..
The image is stamped as always with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I use both the ink pads and the reinkers..
