Live & Love Crafts - My Precious Daughter

Hi everyone!
Hope you had a great Sunday!!
I'm finally able to show you the card I made with the gorgeous new Pion Design papers..

Here's my criss cross card for a precious daugter for the Live & Love Crafts Inspirational Blog..

The image is coloured with Distress Inks..
I use both the ink pads and the reinkers..
There's some Chunky White Frantage around it..
This image is called Summer Wedding Tilda and it's a stamp from the Special Moment Collection 2013..
The postmarks are from Magnolia and Kort & Godt..
There are some Stardust Stickles on the bouquet and the flowers in her hair..

A close up of some of the gorgeous WOC and Kort & Godt flowers that I used..
And of course..
Some beautiful lace and a charm..
I've applied some gesso all over the place..
I've also added some cheesecloth under the image to give some more texture..

More flowers..
And a clay heart and pearl stamens to finish the look..
All the paper edges are distressed with a Tim Holtz tool and then inked with some Walnut Stain..
They are machine sewn too..
I've attached lots of pearls here and there..

I really love these papers..
But the first one that got my attention is the My Precious Daughter one..
I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it..
The insert of this card..

The gorgeous Old Sweedish Lace Doohickey is one of my favourite borders..
And I use the Spellbinders Fancy tags a lot when making criss cross cards..

Well.. That's it for today..
I hope you enjoyed..

Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Tina

Live & Love Crafts - Spice Girls

Morning everyone!
Here's this week's last Spice Girls creation for the Live & Love Crafts Blog..
I have to admit that this one was pretty tough for me..
After studying the whole band history I couldn't come up with anything better than a Baby Spice inspired gift box.. This little angel is gonna be a big star one day.. ;)

I've used lots of different Maja Design Papers.. Some from the Vintage Summer Basics and some from the Vintage Frost Basics Collection..
The inside is also decorated but I forgot to take a pic of that.. Sorry..

The image was cut out using a Spellbinders Timeless Rectangle..
Under that there's a Marianne Design Oval..
And a doily under that one..
So.. Lots of layers indeed..

The flowers are from WOC and Kort & Godt.. I've also used some flower sprays and cheesecloth..
The cute baby Zipper Pull from Prima was perfect for the occasion and I've also used one of the Metal Corners on the other side of the box..

The paper edges are distressed and machine sewn..
I loooove these little angels..
They are made out of Fimo..

Here's the other one..
I've applied some Chunky White Frantage on the papers and around the image..
The postmarks are from Kort & Godt..
I've used lots of Stickles on the image too..

There's some gesso all over the place..
And take a look the gorgeous Lace "Estée"..

The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I use both, the ink pads and reinkers..
I'd like to try the markers also but I need to save some pennies for that..
The stamp is Sleeping Baby Tilda (or Tingla) from the Cozy Family Autumn Collection 2010..

I finished the look by adding some Shabby Seam Binding and the beautiful Princess charm on the side..

I really hope you enjoyed..

Have a fab Sunday everyone!!
Hugs, Tina
