James Bear and a few wedding photo's.

My goodness. Long time no see. I thought I would have been back with a post sooner but life has been a tad manic of late and with so much going on my mojo decided it was time to take a holiday. 

Since my last post, on 16th December our beautiful daughter got married. It was such a fabulous day filled with many laughs and so much emotion. Before I share my card I have just a few photo's of the day.

Now onto my card which has an adorable image from LOTV - James Bear.

He has been coloured using Polychromo and Prismacolor pencils.

The card shape has been created using a stencil from Dutchdoobadoo.
To the top of the card I inserted and stuck down the heart die from Magnolia so that the card could be hung up.
I added some pretty flowers, ribbon, leaves and lace to embellish.

Thank you all for stopping by today.

I have some more cards to share with you so I will be back shortly.

Take care

Wedding card.

Well it has certainly been a long time since my last post.

Life has been very busy over the last few weeks helping Sophie with her Wedding plans. I cannot believe that it is now less than two weeks. I am getting so excited and I know it is going to be such an emotional day.

I hope you like my card which I had such fun making.

The card has been created using Crafters Companion Die'sire create a card die.
The papers are part of the Maja Design Denim Girls collection.

The Mr & Mrs, and the Frame are by Bloomar Designs. I am sure I got the border from there also but I cannot find it. As soon as I locate it I will reference it.

The small flowers and the leaves are by Lady E.
The ribbon and other embellishments have been used from my stash.

Thank you all for stopping by today.

I hope it is not as long a time before I visit again.

My post for Swedish House Crafts

Good morning. I hope you are all well and having a lovely week.

I am sharing with you today the card I made using some of the flowers I showed you in my previous post. I used a combination of Foamiran, Vellum and papers. I used dies from Whimspy Stamp and Lady E to make the flowers which were coloured with Distress Inks.

Don't you just love the cute Elephant which is from a set of six by Paper Nest Dolls. Really looking forward to colouring more of these cuties. This cute Elephant was coloured with Prismacolor Pencils.

The beautiful papers have been taken from a 6 x 6 paper pad by Maja Designs called Denim Girls.

The chipboard burst of stars are from

Thank you for stopping by today and I will see you again soon.

My first post for Swedish House Crafts.

Good morning.

I am here to share my first post for Swedish House Crafts.
I have been admiring the work of the DT ladies for a long time and was thrilled when Suha asked me to join her team. Such an honour to work alongside such talented ladies.

I will be predominantly show casing flowers made from Foamiran but I will also show the effects of using the same die on paper and as you will see below, vellum. 

I coloured the foam flowers with Ink pads. The two large vellum flowers were scored on the back of the vellum to create the lines on the leaves before colouring. 

My DT package included the adorable Elephant which is part a 5 piece set. I have to say they are all so darn cute.
My next project with show how have I used this image and the lush Denim Girl papers to make a card. Of course many of the above flowers will be used.

That's my first post done for Swedish House Crafts. I hope you like my flowers and come back to see the finished card.

See you soon

Wedding Card

Good afternoon.

I hope you are all well. I have been absent from my Blog for a while as we have been on phase two of our garden makeover. Why did I never get into this gardening lark years ago. I am loving it. 

I have made a Wedding card using some gorgeous chipboard elements and paper flowers. 

I have used Lady E dies to create the paper flowers.
The curved edges have been created using Spellbinders Borderbilities dies. 

I believe the Chipboard frame is by Bloomar designs but I have tried searching for it Bloomar Designs Etsy Shop and I cannot find it. If I do come across it I will add it to the thumbnails at the bottom of this post.
The mat which the chipboard has been placed on is by Marianne Designs.
I have added lace, ribbon and pearls from my stash.

I added white embossing powder to the chipboard elements.

Thank you all for your lovely comments.

 I will see you again soon now that our garden is finsished.

Hugs Sharon. x
