Dreamy Ballerina card

Hello my lovely friends,
Hope that your Sunday has been enjoyable!

Here is a card that I have just 
finished making. 

I'm in shabby chic Heaven just lately.

I fell in love with this beautiful Ballerina image,
so I just had to use it for my next card. 

The papers that I have used are from a collection called 
'A beautiful life'. I picked these up at a local craft shop. 
I've tried to research the manufacturer, but haven't
had any luck so far. The papers are beautiful and very 
shabby chic with lots of pink and creamy tones. 

Here, I have adhered a clock embellishment, which 
I printed out and then I added frayed cheese cloth
and a pretty flower collage, using pink and 
cream tone mulberry roses. 

To finish off my card, I adhered a fussy cut butterfly
and sprinkled some Deco Art glammer dust 
to the edges of it's wings. 

Finally, I added two rhinestone cabochons to give a glitzy
finishing touch. 

Thanks for stopping by

Shabby chic wedding card

Hi my lovely friends,
hope you are well and enjoying
your day! 

Here is a shabby chic wedding card 
that I have made for a very special couple
who are getting married in June. 

Again, I wanted to make something they could 
treasure as a keepsake.

I love weddings! My children and I
are so looking forward to celebrating their magical day. 

I have made this card using beautiful papers
from the 'my wedding' collection
by Craft & you design.

I framed this wonderful vintage photo with a 
Sue Wilson frame die. (St Kits Carribean island collection)

I love Sue Wilson dies, they are a dream to work with. 

Here, I have also used a wooden corner embellishment 
and painted it with white gesso to give an aged look. 

I wanted to create a beautiful shabby 
flower collage, so I have used baby pink
mulberry roses and die cut leaves. 

I first adhered frayed cheese cloth, sprayed with
Ranger biscotti perfect pearls mist. 
Finally, I added a beautiful glass-domed
clock embellishment and a fussy cut 
butterfly, I decorated the wings
with cotton candy stickles. 

The sparkly heart is from my own craft stash. 

To complete the card,
I have used a K & Company 
wedding sticker embellishment.

Shabby Chic bride to be card

Hello friends,
hope you are well!

The weather here in England has been awful, 
rainy, windy and just generally miserable! 
Storm Doris has hit us and it's been so cold. 

I've been making a lot of cards lately, mainly vintage 
and shabby chic and anyone who knows me,
knows that I'm a complete sucker for those styles! 

Tonight, I wanted to share with you
a Shabby chic card that I've made for 
a beautiful bride to be. 

We've been invited to her upcoming wedding 
in June, so really looking forward to her wonderful day. 

I wanted to make something extra special
so that she can use it as a keepsake.

Here I have used beautiful papers by a company called 
Craft & you design. 
The paper collection is called 'my wedding',
so this fitted perfectly! 

Once I had adhered the paper onto white card stock,
I framed this beautiful vintage image using 
a die cut. Then I added some beautiful shabby 
pink roses and a pink glitter butterfly. 

Here, I have used some cheese cloth and
also used the same flower collage, with
added die cut leaves. 

Finally, I adhered a wooden birdcadge embellishment, 
vintage lace, pink pearls and
a pink rose cabachon. 
These darling die cut love birds added
a special touch to complete my card. 

Anyway, I really hope that you like my latest card?

Trust your heart

Hi friends,
hope you are well! 

Today I am sharing a vintage card that I have made.
I am also entering it in to the, 

I bought this lovely paper last year, just after
Valentines day and never got around to using it.

So, it's come in really handy for this project! 

This moth embellishment was from my own stash
and fitted perfectly on my card. 
I have also used Tim Holtz film strip ribbon, 
I love using this on my projects! 

To finish off the card, I made my own rolled red roses 
using a Marianne Createables die.
Once rolled, I applied some Christmas red stickles 
to the edges of the flowers. 
I also added a clock embellishment too. 

Thanks, once again for stopping by,
Comments are most welcome and it 
would be lovely to say 
'hello' to you.
