Ribbon Girl Inspiration Card - Little Flower Girl

Hi everyone,

Wahoo at long last it is Friday, even though I've had a busy week, this week has gone so slow and the muggy weather hasn't helped.

I have made another inspirational card for the Ribbon Girl . I have coloured up another of the wonderful All Dressed Up images, and this one is as beautiful as the others that I have coloured.

She is called 'Little Flower Girl' and I have coloured her with DI reinkers.

The circle die peeping out from the left of the card  is a Joy die, the tassels are made from a Marianne die and the swirl is a Magnolia Doohickey die.

Along the top of the image I have placed one of the beautiful Scrapinec  frames, which are lush and so on trend at the moment! I have painted on some Dutch Doobadoo structure paste around the outside of the image. 

All the embellishments are available in the Ribbon Girl shop,  I just adore the new tulle lace. Links to the materials are at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product.


 DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Dress: Aged Mahogany, Spun Sugar
Hat, Bag and Flowers: Forest Moss, Shabby Shutter, Aged Mahogany, Spun Sugar

That's it from me today.

Have a lovely weekend.

Thank you for popping in.

New Challenge at LHOSM

Hi everyone,

I hope you are a having a relaxing weekend. Summer seems to have disappeared here in the south of the U.K. at the moment, it is very dull  and grey here today, but perfect weather to stay indoors and craft, although I have had a distraction as Kyra has been staying with us this weekend. 

We have a new challenge at Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia today and our theme is 

'Add some Blue'
(this can be blue paper, flowers blue in your colouring, blue embellishments etc)

I have coloured up a Hanglar image (sorry but I don't know her name) which was a gift for my birthday from a teamie on the LHOSM DT. I have always longed to have some Hanglar images, but they don't seem to be made anymore, which is such a shame.

The shape of the card has been cut using a rectangle double stitched rectangle die and the flower edge die and the the 8 point die are both Joy dies from Noor Design U.K.

Underneath the flowers is a Memory Box Loopy Rings die. The pearls, pom pom trim ribbon and flowers are from the Ribbon Girl. They are also stocking gathered tulle now too.  Links to the materials I have used are at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product. 

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Clothes: Weathered Wood, Hickory Smoke
Shoes: Weathered Wood (and I've added some Star Dust Stickles to her socks)

We have TWO wonderful sponsors this time:

First:


Second


We would love to see you join us.

That's it from me today.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

Devine Tilda

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are having a good week and are all well!

Today I am sharing a card I made for fun using an older Maggie, Devine Tilda. I have coloured her with DI reinkers.

The butterflies are a Joy die and the papers are a mixture from the Maja Vintage Romance collection.

Around the outside of the image is some pretty ivory lace and pearl trim.  I have placed some pearl string along the centre of the butterflies and some double row pearl trim along the left hand side of the card and above the lace. The corner is made from air dry clay and a silicone mould. The flowers and lace are from my stash. Links to some of the materials I have used are at the bottom of this post, just click on  a picture to be taken directly to the product.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Dress: Hickory Smoke
Shoes: Gathered Twigs

Well that's it from me today.

Thank you for popping in.

Take care.
