Handmade Flowers for Deep Ocean DT

Hi everyone,
Sorry, I'm a day late with my creation for 
which this time is all about
Handmade Flowers!

I'm late because hubby's off this week and thrown me totally out of my routine!
This card is for my friend's mum and dad who are celebrating their golden wedding anniversary next week. He's commissioned me to make quite a few cards for him, so you'll get to see them over the coming weeks :)
Saying that, it's also taking me out of my comfort zone as I'm doing cards I've not had to do before, and this one is a prime example - no image! This might be a first for me as I always do cards with an image as the focus, but I'm pleased with the final result even though it's something I wouldn't normally do :)

The shape of the card is a Go Kreate card die - frilly square #8
The wording is computer generated and cut out using Spellbinders Labels sixteen, as is the gold mirri card underneath.  Faux stitching inside and out. I covered the chipboard 50 in gold Frantage.
Cheesecloth, paper and ribbon are from my stash.

The handmade flowers were made by cutting Magnolia doohickey peony and doily flowers out of watercolour paper, coloured with TH scattered straw and wild honey DI's, a couple of pearl stamens in the middle and with star dust stickles to finish. The Spellbinder leaves are cut from gold mirri card.

A picture of the inside....  a criss cross design to hold a photo to mark the occasion.

We are sponsored this fortnight by the wonderful Ribbon Girl with this fab prize:

Thanks for visiting my blog today.
Can't wait to see your amazing creations! 
Have fun :)

Deep Ocean challenge DT- 'Just one layer'

Hi everyone! I'm here with my latest creation for 
the theme this time is
'Just one layer'
and I had great fun creating this Christmas card! I was amazed to find how much I could put on just one layer and I could have carried on but I didn't want to have overload and spoil it!

I cut my watercolour paper using the Go Kreate shaped card die I'd used for the base of my card. Then I stamped Magnolia's Tilda with snow heart and masked her with an SU Christmas tree. Tilda is coloured using DI's. The snow around her is pearl maker pen.

I added plenty of shabby white frantage

The snowflakes and Merry Christmas text are from - the girls' paperie - stamp set 'Tinsel and Twig'

The final touch was crackle accents on the snow heart

Our fab sponsor this fortnight is The Ribbon Girl with this great prize

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today, it means such a lot! I hope you can join in the fun with us at Deep Ocean, your creations are always so beautiful!

I will be back on Sunday with my midway creation for Simply Magnolia, so until then....
Happy Crafting

Simply Magnolia Anything Goes/DT call

Hi everyone,
Just a quick post to let you all know about 
Simply Magnolia's 'Anything Goes' challenge
 that still has a week to run AND the DT call that I'm having this fortnight, I love it! It's fantastic to see the beautiful entries that you only get with an open theme and it's exciting wondering who will enter the DT call.

I've made an autumn giftbag as inspiration this time, I made a patchwork design out of the gorgeous papers and the doily you may have noticed is from when I stayed in Boras. I can't believe it's nearly a whole year since I was there and this time of year will always remind me of that trip of a lifetime!

leaves and pinecones have plenty of Diamond Stickles added

Magnolia Tilda with carrots (coloured with distress inks)
Magnolia Autumn frame
Magnolia DooHickeys - swirl, small poinsettia (cut up for leaves)  and dragonflies
Spellbinders leaves
Most of the papers are Bo Bunny Forever Fall 
lace, metal corner, pinecones and doily from stash

We are lucky to be sponsored by Mary and Andrea from The Ribbon Girl who have this prize waiting for the winner:

Challenges I would like to enter:
