For A Baby

Hi everyone!
I'm here with my card for the LLC Inspiration Blog..
But this is also my DT card for the Deep Ocean Challenge Blog..
This fortnight's theme is For A Baby..
I do love making baby cards, don't you??

The LLC theme this week is 'The Great Whites'.. That's why I've decided to use all those gorgeous white embellies..
The card's shape was made using a GoKreate die..
The stamp is from Magnolia - Sleeping Baby Tingla..
I just had to use these gorgeous yellow papers from the Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics Collection..

The metal corner, shabby seam binding and pearl string are just some of my favourite embellishments.. They really do add that special touch to a project.. And the baby bottle charm is sooooo cute.. 
The bird cage is a Tim Holtz die..

I love paper flowers and Sandra has the most wonderful assortment in her store.. I've used WOC hip rosebuds, open roses, liles, cherry blossoms, wild roses, sweetheart blossoms, cosmos daisies and Kort & Godt Chrysanthemums.. They are all so gorgeous, don't you think? 
The wings are a Magnolia Doohickey die..

Of course how could I not put some cheese cloth and lace there.. And the doily..
 I really do like cards with LOTS of layers.. 
The feathers are a great detail too..
The swirls is a Doohickey and I covered it with some Crackle Paint and Stickles....

The stars are made with a MS mould and some FIMO air..
The Frantage is another thing I couldn't live without.. 
I use it a lot..
The pearls are from WOC..

I've used Spellbinders Ovals and Scalloped Ovals to frame the image..
The baby is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks and re-inkers..
All the paper edges are distressed and machine sewn..

You should really check out the LLC store.. 
There are tons of new products that I cannot wait to get my hands on.. 

And don't forget to join us at Deep Ocean Challenges..
We always have amazing prizes up for grabs.. ;)

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
1. Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia - Challenge #79 - Use a Charm
2. The Ribbon Girl - Magnolia Only Challenge - One for the Boys

Violet Tilda

Hi everyone, I'm here today with my DT card for the Marvelous Magnolia Challenge.. Our theme this week is Floral Frenzy (Lots of Flowers)..
But that's not all..
This is also my very first card as an official member of the
Live & Love Crafts DT..

So here's what I've made..

I chose Violet Tilda from the Magnolia Sea Breeze Collection 2013..
Of course there are my beloved Maja Design papers.. They are sooo gorgeous..
The shape of the card was made using a GoKreate die..

Anyway.. I've used my Spellbinders Circles to cut out the image and then I added some Liquid Pearls all around..
There are two doilies on this card..
The big one is from my stash..
The smaller one was made with a Cheery Lynn die..
I've also used a MS punch..

There's the Tilda Tag and the Butterfly (covered with Frantage) die from Joy!Crafts..
Then there's the cheesecloth and the vintage seam binding..
I love this little charm too.. A perfect match for the lock and key..
I've used once again the Shabby White Frantage and I've applied some Crackle Paint here and there..
All the edges are distressed with the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser Tool and then Inked with Walnut Stain..
And of course all the edges are machine sewn..

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Kort&Godt..
They are all covered with Picket Fence Crackle Paint..
The pearls are from WOC too..
And check out that pin.. So classy..

I just love all the resin pieces Sandy's got in her store.. I really love them all!! 
But I couldn't put them all on one card, right?  So I used only a few of those..
Aren't these just amazing??
And the lace?? My all time favourite..

I've coloured the image with Distress Inks and re-inkers..
Skin/Cheeks: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Dress: Weathered Wood, Black Soot
Flowers: Victorian Velvet, Pumice Stone
 The flourish is from Stempelglede..

I haven't used the UTEE for a long time so I just had to make something with it..
I love the vintage effect of all those cracks but the image kindof looses the sharpness when you cover it with the UTEE.. Don't you think?

The sponsors for this marvelous challenge are:

Hope you'll be able to join!!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
1. Simply Magnolia - Die cuts / Punches Challenge
