Saturated canary Inspiration

Hidey ho folks! I'm here today with a little saturated Canary Inspiration and a commissioned goodbye card..
I used Teresa Collins papers in lemon and pink with some chocolate card stock for contrast. My butterfly border is a joy crafts die and my pretty flowers are a mixture of Wild orchids and Prima. My beautiful butterflies are of course from Kays kreative korner and my sentiment is waltzing mouse.
My sweet sorrowful image is one of the Saturated Canary images in Rubber only "there's always tomorrow" available at Little darlings and other outlets. I have coloured her in prisma pencils and added a little stempelglede flourish in vintage photo distress ink around the edge.
Don't forget to pop over to the Saturated Canary inspiration blog regularly for some stunning inspiration and keep up to date with the challenges on the facebook page!!!
Thanks for coming by my blog again everyone!

Lace at Midweek Magnolias and Divas buttons and bows

Hi everyone, yes it's been a while! I seem to be getting myself involved in other things and not crafting so much at the moment. Maybe I just need to have a break away a bit? Anyway I am still floating about with the odd creation!
Over at Midweek Magnolias it is midway for our Lacey lace challenge and at Divas we have a new challenge of buttons and bows which both fit with this card.
I have used pretty papers which came free with a crafting magazine, Prima butterflies, flowers from WOC and a wooden tag. lace and some berries from Live and love crafts. My die cut leaves are also magnolia and my frame for the image is nestabilities.
My sweet Tilda has been coloured with prisma pencils and I have added some liquid pearls in blue. My image edging has been inked with tea dye distress ink and I have used a stempelglede stamp around the edges.
We do hope you can join us for the challenges. My team mates have made some stunning creations do check them out and don't forget you have a chance of winning an awesome prize from Magnolia in Sweden if you enter at MM!
Thanks for coming by my blog!

Anything goes at stampin for the weekend

Hello again everyone! I'm still cold ya know?! I shouldn't complain at least we don't have a tonne of snow but I feel the cold really badly (says she in her blanket and fingerless gloves!) so I'm all up for a bit of warmer weather now!
I have a new card to show you today which is a commission I made and is also perfect for the Anything goes challenge over at Stampin for the weekend today.
The request was an 18th girls birthday card, spring colours, girlie and with a frog....
Did I meet the criteria? I used fabulous Black market paper society papers.  Stunning flowers from WOC, butterflies from Kays kreative korner and love metal heart and wooden tag from LLC.
I gave the customer a few images to choose from (frog related) and she chose this one from Meljens which I have coloured with prisma pencils. I have added some pink liquid pearls and I have edged in a stempelglede flourish stamp in peeled paint distress ink.
Although this isn't normally the sort of image I go for I actually really enjoyed making this and hopefully that shows through in the work I have done.
Thanks for coming by my blog again everyone. It would be fab if you could join us for our Anything goes challenge at Stampin for the weekend with a chance to win a prize from Marker pop!

Saturated Canary Mother's day inspiration

Hello lovely folk how are we all?! It's a bit brrrr freezing here today (lots of cold fog about) and there was me thinking that spring was coming with a few recent days of sun!
I have made a little inspiration today for Saturated Canary. I wanted to make a Mother's day card with a difference. I haven't tried one of these cards with draws in before so I figured it was time to give it a go!
I found a tutorial on how to make something like this HERE. I changed the measurements a bit as I wanted mine to be bigger (this is a 6x6) I love the fact there are 2 little drawers to the front and one on either side so thats 4 drawers for little extra goodies!!
I have used Magnolia papers for all of this on kraft card stock. The little drawer handles are made from ribbon and gem brads. The card on top is an easel card and stands up on this sentiment I printed from google search which is mounted on foam pads.
My wonderful image is the darling Snail mail from saturated Canary she is just so cute! I have coloured her with prisma pencils and have edged  in a tsempelglede stamp in Victorian velvet ink. My cute wooden tag is from LLC and has been stamped with a LOTV stamp.
My fowers are a mixture of some stunners from LLC and WOC. There is a prima wooden clock in there and of course that stunning butterfly from Kays Kreative Korner (swoon!) I have also used a bit of pink tulle under the layers for added texture.
Here is ho the card lays flat against the box for ease of posting. Now all I have to do is find some delicious goodies to pop in those drawers and send it off to my mum!
Thanks for coming by my blog again and do pop by the SC blog for some more inspiration and join in with us over on our Facebook page for some challenge fun!

A male project with a flourish

Hello again everyone! Is it me or are the days just flying by at the moment?! I honestly can't seem to find time to catch up on anything these days and my crafting really does seem to be taking a back seat :(
Anyway I'm here today to show you a little box I made which is for both the new challenge at Midweek Magnolias (flourishes) and the new challenge also at Divas by Design (let's hear it for the boys).
I have made this for my brothers 50th birthday..
I have used stunning papers from Authentique for this and finished off with lots of kraft elements. My flourishes are cut with a magnolia die, my butterfly is prima and my wooden tag studio calico (at LLC).
I am ashamed to say this is the first time I have inked up this little cutie Edwin. He is from an older range but is just too adorable. I have coloured him with prisma pencils. The blotches around the edge are and urban stampin up stamp.. love this which I have stamped with stormy sky distress ink.
This is a perfect little box to hold his pressie in!
Do check out the makes from my other teamies. At MM there is an awesome prize up for grabs from Magnolia in Sweden! And at Divas yet another great prize from Craftie Charlie.
Thanks for coming by my blog again friends!
Big hugs to you all
