Gift Set

Hi to you all. Even though this little set was finished last night, it was far too late for my eyes to sit at the computer to share. At 3.30am I needed some sleep.
I have used Kaisercraft papers from the Le Chateau Collection and the a fantastic Martha Stewart border punch. The front of the card is based on an acrylic sheet which gives it a different effect and works well with the clear sleeve box.
Wednesdays Challenge at All That Scraps is to make a clear card.
I have also followed the sketch from the Papertake Weekly Challenge.
Anything goes this week at Just Magnolia, so here goes.

This is Tilda with Birdcage, I have had her for awhile now and have only just got around to using her. Flowers are a mixure from Magnolia, Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts & Zva.
This Clear Sleeve Box is the challenge at Project Tuesday. Very simple to make and instructions can be found on their blog if you need them. Make sure you take a look they have other fantastic projects all the time! Butterflies, fairies or angels is always on the go at Flutterby Wednesdays, and I love butterflies. So this is for their weekly challenge too.

Secretive Tilda is so very cute, I have made this easel card with a paper I had been wanting to use for ages. I sprayed the square lace doily & smaller lace doily with Walnut Gold glimmer mist and have based the card on gold cardstock. Tree stump and sentiment stamp is from Whiff of Joy, Lillies are from Magnolia and the swirls are courtesy of my new Ecraft digital cutter. Butterflies are new from Prima aswell as the pebble.

For winning Challenge #14 at The Shabby Tea Room recently not only was I lucky enough to win some gorgeous vintage seam binding but I have also been given the opportunity to be their guest designer this week. What an honour as these girls create some absolutely lovely designs.
This week, the challenge is "Tag You're It'
This is an easel card I have made using a Bildmalarna image coloured with Copic markers. Papers are from Wild Rose Studio's paper pads, stamped text is from Whiff of Joy (Magic Moments) and Hero Arts (inside).

I have also used my oval Spellbinders die, Cuttlebug tag die and Sizzix large scallop tag die. And it was only fitting that I made use of some of my vintage seam binding. If you want some of the vintage seam binding for yourself head on over to Deb's Simple Treasures  Debbie has a great range of colours to choose from too!!

I can't seem to go far away from the colour pink, although at times I do try!

Edwin card

At last I'm begining to get back into my papercrafting, it seems like months more than weeks. I have had a lot going on and haven't felt very inspired. This is the first time I have used a stamp from my Magnolia stamp kit which arrived a couple of weeks ago. When I first saw this image, the words 'hang in there' came to mind, here is 'Dangling Edwin' from the new Bon Voyage collection. I've also used the rope, pelican and text stamp.

I have made this card for the Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge #16, the theme is to use an Edwin stamp.
 Here is the inside, I put the text inside the lifesaving ring image and coloured it aswell as the pelican with copics. The 'tide always turns' text has been stamped. Edge was done with a fiskars punch.

Here you can see how I've used the acetate and added a Hambly Screen Prints white rubon and some Papermania rhinestones.

Criss Cross Card

My very first Criss Cross card! I've used Tilda with Peony and coloured with copics. The paper I have had for ages and I cannot even remember from where. The scallop along the crossed edges is actually the edge of some lace. The pull tab oval at the top of the insert was made from a Spellbinders die.
