Live & Love Crafts DT Card

Hello everyone yay its the weekend, ya gotta lurve the weekends.
Ok so I'm here with this weeks theme which is Checks/Stripes, I have gone for checks. I actually made the base of this card beginning of this week but only finished it last night when I finally chose an image lol. Its usually the other way around for me lol.
I have used gorgeous Maja Design papers for this one.

I have added a beautiful resin charm which you can just see, for some reason my camera hasn't picked things up very well. On the tag there is a 'Butterfly ClipS' which are on special here right now.

A better look at the papers inside the card. For the shape I used a Go-Kretae die.

I have used a Saturated Canary image for this one, I lurve this image, She is a Little Darlings stamp called 'Puppy Luv' but I've just used one of the stamps. I coloured her with distress markers.

There is also 'Cheese Cloth' under all there somewhere lol. The tag also has a Stempelglede sentiment on it. All links to products used are below.

Well thats it for me I'm off to the gym now build some mus-kulls ;0)
Tatty bye & hope you all have a creative weekend our lovelies

Live & Love Crafts Challenge - Wings

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Well its time for a new challenge over at the Live & Love Crafts these months are flying by!! It will soon be time for the jolly fella in red to come woo hoo. Tbh I brought the first crimbo present beginning of August...........I dont normally start til September but.........well grandchildren need to be spoilt by grandparents........ ;0)

Ok back to the challenge where the thewme this month is...........
WINGS super easy is that. I have the card I was gonna use last wednesday for my inspirational yep its another LOTV image..........its an addiction that I dont plan on having treatment for ;0)
I have again used the new gorgeous Pion Winters Day papers, they really are lush. These ones are 'Christmas Eve' 6x6 & all have been inked with walnut & machine stitched.

The poinsettia I made with a La La Land die & it got inked with pumice stone then sprayed with lots of Glimmer Mist then added a silver Metal Rose to the centre from Live & Love Crafts.

I added Pom Pom trim to the side & all the flowers are from LLC, including the 'Frosted Berries' which I love. I also added a 'Fir Cone' & bits of 'Snowtex' over all the flowers. 

This darling LOTV image is one of the latest christmas ones & one of my faves, it's called 'A Little Prayer' & again I did Elise's effect with the embossing but this one I coloured with Copics. I did this & the snowman family the same night & wanted to compare with copic vs distress ink ;0)

E29, E25, E23, E21
RV99, RV95, RV93, RV91

I also added Tim Holtz Picket Fence glitter to the bottom as snow, I love how thick this glitter is. Of course I also added White Fran-Tage around the image ;0)

The lace along the bottom is gorgeous 'Crocheted Pearl Lace 22mm', I lurve all the little pearls on it. I also added a 'Silver Snowflake' on the end, again with a touch of Snowtex. I added a beautiful 'Resin Angel'  to the bottom as well, I chose this one as she is praying aswell.......perfect together.
The banner I made myself using a LOTV 'Christmas Handwritten Phrase' stamp.

LOTV Guest Designer Card

Hello everyone I'm here today with my last card for LOTV as their Guest Designer for August, boo hoo :0( I have to say I'm so proud, honoured & extremely thankful that I got chosen to be a Guest designer & totally loved it. Thank you soooooooo much LOTV for having me. Ok as I'm running late I will make this a quickie post.
Ok so onto my last card & again I've used James Bear..........this is my favourite James stamp :0)
I've used Maja Design papers, inked the edges & machine stitched. 
The top layer I cut into a flag shape to add some interest & also stamped 'Love You' with LOTV 'Handwritten Phrases' sentiment stamp.

I decorated inside to compliment the front, again with the flag shape. A space will be added to write a personal message on.

I've added gorgeous lace & tulle to the side. The sentiment is LOTV 'Pretty Grunge Relations' & I added a couple of small pearls to it.

The fabulous stamp is 'James Umbrella' & I coloured him with distress markers & added pearl dots using a pearl pen. I also added glossy accents to the puddle but you cant see it in the pic :0(
The fences are 'Lovely Fence' from Magnolia.

The 'Sister' charm is from my stash. The leaves are Magnolia 'Sprawling Ferns'.
All of the flowers, the lace, the tulle & the Maja Design papers are all from Live & Love Crafts, who have a relaunch sale on til midnight tonight if you want to go shopping for the most beautiful shabby chic & vintage products there is.

Ok thats it from me hope you have enjoyed my cards for LOTV, I certainly enjoyed making them.
Thank you sooooooooooo much for stopping by.

Huge hugs to all mmwah
