Deep Ocean DT - Lace and Pearls

Hi everyone,
Oh no I'm a day late with my Deep Ocean DT creation! It took longer than I thought it would to complete and then I've had loads of problems today with my laptop - I hate technology sometimes, can't live with it, can't live without it!
Our theme this fortnight is a beautiful one -
'Lace and Pearls'

My creation tonight is a criss cross card and gift box combined in the shape of a purse/handbag
The base of the box and card are Go Kreate and Spellbinders. Magnolia's Tilda with rose basket is coloured with DI's, surrounded by SU text and edge stamps and cut from Spellbinders labels two die. Other accessory dies used: TH weathered clock, Magnolia DooHickeys tag, peaky floral tab, antique lace, afternoon tea bench. The pearl lace is new to my stash from Live and Love Crafts. Pearl pin, ribbon and lace, WOC flowers and pearls are all from my stash. The gorgeous paper is all Magnolia.

The criss cross card insert has the Magnolia peaky floral tab crossed at the top to represent the purse clasp.

Inside and small sides of the box are covered using Maja paper, and more pearls are randomly scattered.

Back of the box, decorated with more lace and pearls, plus Magnolia DooHickey tea bench and small  WOC rose buds entwined.

Close up showing frantage, pearl maker pen, and silver gel pen detail along with that gorgeous lace.

We have the lovely Sandy from Live and Love Crafts sponsoring us

with this fab prize for one lucky winner

Hope you can join us....

Favourite card of 2014 - D.O.C DT

Hi everyone!
Hope you've all had the best Christmas and are looking forward to a brilliant new year. It's gone so fast, I can't quite believe we only have one day left of 2014.....
With this in mind,
 last challenge of the year is to look back at all we've made and pick out our
 Favourite card of 2014!

My favourite creation this year was something I made for Magnolia Ink magazine competition back in April, I'd never had time to enter before, it was the first (and last) I entered, as they decided not to print any more magazines after that!

Technically it's a box, but I did make three cards to go inside it so I guess it still counts as my favourite card!

It's a bitter/sweet final challenge of 2014,
 I just wanted to thank Sara and Franz for inviting me to join Deep Ocean earlier this year and to say how much I'll miss them, it's been a pleasure to work with them on this DT, they are both soooooo talented! Miss you already girls! :(
But, I'm also thrilled that my teamie Karina is taking over to keep Deep Ocean going, it's such a popular blog and to lose it would be a tragedy, so thanks Karina - look forward to continue working for you as Boss lol! xxx

Hope you all like my choice of favourite card(s) of 2014,
wishing you loads of inspiration for 2015!

Simply Magnolia DT - Vintage midway reminder

Hi everyone,
Well, you know what they say? Better late than never!
I finally managed to blog my card (yay!) for 
current challenge

My Vintage Christmas card has lace and tulle either side of the sepia coloured Magnolia snowy cottage image, with added shabby white Frantage and stickles on the falling snow. I machine stitched a Magnolia DooHickey Tilda lace border around the image. The brads from my stash looked kind of vintage to go in the centre of layered Magnolia DooHickey poinsettias. The leaves for the poinsettias are made from the same die. Background paper and poinsettia paper are both Magnolia. The card base is a Go Kreate die and I also managed to tuck a Magnolia DooHickey tree in behind the tulle too!

Our fab sponsor is of course Sandy from LLC this time
with another wonderful voucher for the lucky winner!

Challenges I would love to enter:
Ribbon Girl - Anything Goes
LHOSM - Christmas
Magnolia Mania - Anything Goes
MDUC - Tic tac toe (DooHickeys, glitter/stickles/snowflakes on image)

Blue and Brown - Deep Ocean DT

Hi everyone! 
Oh dear, I'm a very bad blogger at the moment, I completely missed last week's Simply Magnolia midway card! I'm back working as a Preschool keyworker three days a week and I bring a lot of work home with me so any spare time is taken up with keeping that up to date and leaves very little time left to craft :(
I managed to make the card I have for
 current challenge of
 Blue and Brown
 a while back before I went back to work. It was for my friend's grandson who was 1 year old at the beginning of October and he asked me to make a special card.....

The inside has a criss cross design, with a framed insert for a photo.

LOTV Baby boy stamp coloured with distress inks
scallop edged blank card
Go Kreate shaped card die
Spellbinders Lacey Circle and Fleur de Lis square
Magnolia DooHickey star tag
TH chit chat sticker
buttons from stash

Thanks for popping over to my blog, have a great week, and fingers crossed I make it back here on Sunday!
