Here I am again! For my creative inspirations post please scroll down...
It's challenge time again at Divas by design and we want to see you use your buttons. I used to have an issue with buttons, just couldn't get them to look right on my cards at all, but now I think they make a lovely addition to a bow and they are so easy to alter too with ink and embossing powder if you don't have the right colour!
I was so so so thrilled when my new Magnolia fall collection stamp club arrived on monday too, so much so that I just had to get into them and what cuties they are! So todays card features just a few of the fab stamps from the kit.
I have used papers from My minds eye holly jolly collection, just gorgeous! Along with pearls, ribbon, button and cheesecloth from stash. My stick pin is handmade and my flowers are a selection from Wild orchids, mulberry crafts and Kort & Godt with a bit of snow tex on. My lace is also Wild orchids and I have followed the stunning sketch over at CLP.
My sweet image is one from the new kit along with the fab sentiment. I have masked her and created a motled blue background with stormy sky distress ink. I then stamped some snowflakes (also in the fall kit) and embossed in glitter and white for a slightly snowy background along with some liquid pearls, you will have to take my word for it that it's sparkly as the photo doesn't show it well. She has been coloured with prisma pencils and all of my edges have been machine stitched and distressed and inked with vintage photo. I think she is utterly adorable!
I would also like to enter this into Crafty cardmakers anything goes, Totally stampalicious emboss it, Papertake weekly anything goes, Delightful pearls and swirls, Whoopsidaisy lace and pearls and Paper sundaes lots of layers.
I do hope you will join us in our challenge and check out the rest of the DTs superb creations!
Thanks for coming by again and big hugs to you all
