Deep Ocean Challenge DT Card

Well I'm back again this time with my DT Creation for Deep Ocean Challenge. This fortnight the challenge is.............
CHRISTMAS IN AUGUST as soon as I saw the challenge I knew exactly which stamp company I was using..........I just needed decide which stamp to use. Yes of course I'm talking about the new LOTV christmas stamps, the problem was which one to use............decisions, decisions.......
..........yes eventually I went with this gorgeous stamp, probably on of my faves from the new release tbh.

I have used Marianne Design dies for the 'Poinsettia' & the 'Leaves', I added 'Snowtex' to the poinsettia & a Pink Lily to the centre. I also added lace & a doily which are from my stash.

This is the inside. The papers are the gorgeous Maja Design Vintage Frost Basics, I have used '5th December' & '19th December', I've inked the edges with Pumice Stone & machine stitched them. For the shape I have used a Spellbinder XXL die.

I have made a bow with gorgeous crushed satin lace & added a 'Shabby Chic Angel'. The tree is also a Marianne Design which again is covered with Snowtex.

This gorgeous LOTV stamp is called 'Christmas Light' I love these angels, they are my fave from the new release, although I love them all tbh ;0) I have coloured her with distress markers & covered her wings in Stardust Stickles, the flame & the stars on the headband have had Yellow stickles on them.

The tag is a Magnolis doo-Hickey & I added a bit of seam binding from my stash, the sentiment on it is from LOTV 'Christmas Handwritten Phrases' sentiments.

Well thats about it form me today lol. I have a few of these new LOTV stamps coloured up so you will be seeing more of them, at least one more of them this week ;0) It was either I buy the new Magnolia stamps or the LOTV stamps.............yep LOTV won hands down!!!

Okie doke so this post if for Midweek Magnolia's & its to remind you there is a week left to enter our challenge, which is........

I have finally inked this sweet stamp up, this is 'Tilda with Bowknow' & I coloured her with distress markers. She is on sale right now over at Bunny Zoes, Nikki has 15% knocked off right across her store......

This is the back of the giftbag. The gorgeous papers are Maja Design Coffee In The Arbour, the bottom one is 'Lovely Weather' & the top one is from the Maja Design Coffee In The Arbour 6x6 pad.

I added a 'Canvas Mini Bag' & decorated it with the reverse side of 'Lovely Weather', all papers are inked with walnut & machine stitched. The tag is a Magnolia Doo-Hickey, the 2 sentiments, the one on the tag & the one inside the clay frame are both from Little Darlings 'Friendship' sentiment stamps.

Okie doke so I have a wee bit of inspiration using one of Krista's super gorgeous images..........I've actually used this image before & its one of my faves. The last time I went my usual foofy type but this time I've gone CAS.........So here is my CAS SC card.

I added a small Prima flower at the top of the strip............I could have probably have left it blank but.....well I had to put something there lol.

The gorgeous image is called 'Angels Among Us' & she is available as a digi image here or a rubber stamp from Little Darlings. I coloured her with Copics & paper pieced her top, shoes & the feather & added a bit of shading with a black prisma pencil.

Hello again my lovelies, wow is it windy here today its blown my grandaughters little plastic house thing & her slide across the lawn :0(
Well I'm back again this time with my creation for LOTV & this time I made a gift bag. I sooooooooo love making these, I will have another one to show you on Wednesday with another DT post...........yep didnt realise they would both fall in the same week.
Anyhoo's how about I just show you what I made...........lots of LOTV products on this one.........
I find these hard to photo, I dont know why. Ok lets start with my favourite LOTV papers which were actualy made for me as they have my name written right into them ;0)
 They are of course 'Timeless Victoria-n' lol excuse the space just wanted to show my name off lol.
This is the back which I'm not totally happy with & my Mojo had near enough gone away as I do remember it being late at night. However I have used a LOTV 'Vintage Back - Flora & Fauna' which I've had since their release & only now has this been inked up........I know I'm naughty :0( I inked it up & distressed it a wee bit ;0) then added a Stempelglede sentiment stamp in the centre.
I have added some gorgeous lace called 'Cherie' & added 'Shabby Pearl Rose' on top as well. The fence , lamp-post & leaves are Magnolia Doo-Hickeys. The metal corner is from LLC. Doily from my stash.

All of the flowers are from Live & Love Crafts. The butterflies are a Joy Crafts die & I've gave them the Fran-Tage treatment with Aged Wine & Shabby White. I've also added a 'Postcard' charm there by the lace. I also added a 'Fleur De Lis' at the top in the centre of the bag with a teeny bit of Bakers Twine through it.

The gorgeous stamp is called 'Flower Fairy' & I coloured her with Copics. I added glitter to her wings, well every fairy should sparkle ;0)

The large postage mark at the top is a Magnolia stamp. All of the sentiments used on this bag are LOTV, I have used 'Sentiment Tags', 'Pretty Grungy Relations' & 'Vintage Labels'. Used a few didn't I lol, well its a big space so can get away with it lol. The blank gift bag itself is from my stash.

Well thats it from me hope you like my 2nd project for LOTV, thank you soooooooooo incredibly much for your lovely comments regarding my last LOTV GDT creation they really did make me smile, mmwah loves you all.

Take care & enjoy the rest of your day, I will leave you in peace now lol.
