New Challenge Ribbon Girls - Anything Goes

Good morning everyone,

We have our first challenge of the year at the Ribbon Girl today our theme is the ever popular 'Anything  Goes'. 

This is the wonderful prize up for grabs:




White Mixed Dahilas to colour yourself, a packet of ten Aurora Borealis Hearts, 1 metre of 10mm flat back Ivory Pearl Square Trim,  Prima Park Bench and Bridge Set.

For my card I stamped up Tilda with Her Rabbit using Copics and Prisma Pencils to colour her and mounted her onto one of the Prisma Resin Frames. I cut the shape using a Go Kreate die Large Frame Frilly #6. The papers are by Maja. The flowers are Prima, Daisy, Beaded Twirls and Gardenia. The lace I have used is Emily Embroidered Tulle  and White Diamond Guipure and the ribbon is Pale Pink Pure Silk. I have removed the centre of the daisies and stuck a Flat back White Pearl in it's place. The Silver charm is a Bird Cage with Heart.

Hello my lovelies,

I am so happy (and lucky) that I have been selected to stay on as a  DT member at Marvelous Magnolia following the DT call so thank you Rina!!

Our challenge this time is 'Pretty Pearls', one of my absolute favourites. Our three wonderful sponsors for this challenge are:


I have stamped up Tilda with Fantasy Flower from the latest collection Lost and Found, you may see a lot more of her (lol)! As always I have used Copics to colour with and a few highlights have been added using Prisma pencils. I have cut the shape using a Go Kreate die Large Frame Flower #1 and covered it with some gorgeous Maja Papers. Around the outside of the inner flower I have attached some Pearl String. The butterflies are cut from a Joy die and a few small pearls have been attached along the centre. The lace with the pearl centre is from Die to Die For. Most of the flowers are from my stash, but the gorgeous Flower Sprays are from Live and Love Crafts. Most of the materials used to make this card are listed below, just click on the picture and it will take you directly to the product.

New Challenge LHOSM - Ribbon or Trim

Hello my lovelies,

I hope you had a good week and are all well. Mine was very busy, work is crazy at the moment so I have been quite tired and have not found the time to blog so apologies for that.

Anyway on to the task in hand and that is that we have a lovely new challenge at LHOSM today and the theme is Ribbon or Trim.  Our wonderful sponsor this time is Bunny Zoe Crafts.

I have coloured up Romantic Tilda with Umbrella with Copics and added a few highlights with Prisma Pencils. To give some sparkle to the umbrella I have added some Star Dust Stickles. For a bit of a different look I have rolled some cheesecloth and positioned it around the image.     Tucked behind the image is Joy die and to the left a So Wrapped Lovely Magnolia Doohickey die. The gorgeous corner positioned at the top right of the image is one of the new Prima embellishments that the Ribbon Girls are now stocking. The Lace, Ribbon, Flowers,Cheesecloth and beautiful Butterfly Diamante Charm are also from the Ribbon Girls. The images at the bottom of this post will take you directly to the product. 



Copics I used:

Skin: E21, 00, 000, R20
Hair: E57, 43, 53, 50
Dress, Umbrella, Hat & Shoes: E44, 43, 42, 41, 40, R83, 81, RV000
Background: W5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0, 00

Pencils: Burnt Ochre, Dark Umber, Black

My teamies have designed some wonderful creations so if you have a chance pop over and take a look and it would be lovely to see you take part.

Take care and thank you for popping in!
