The Sketchy Challenges # 52 Jane's Sketch

Hi crafty bloggers are we all...hope your all having fun in blogland :)
It's time for a new challenge at The Sketchy Challenges
We have a gorgeous sketch & sponser from the super talented Jane ...

I have chosen Tilda with rosettes.. and masked her on the vintage bench stamp.I have coloured her with distress ink markers and pads. I have made the frame with a spellbinders die and I have covered it in some sugar glitter.

The papers are from Pion from Live & Love Crafts and the beautiful die around her was sent from my super bloggy friend. I lightly stamped the die cut with London fog momento dewdrop ink with a Magnolia text stamp. I have used some tulle for the panel behind her .

The beautiful flowers and  pearl bling centre are from the Ribbon Girl. I have also stamped Magnolia especially for you text stamp on the bottom right hand corner though it is hard to see in the picture. Lastly I have added this beautiful butterfly and frantaged with lavender glass glitter.

I hope you are inspired to join us at The Sketchy Challenges .....

I would like to enter my card into the following super challenge

Sun,Shabby & Sketch ;0)

Hi Crafty Bloggers 

How are we all....The sun has been shining away here it's hot love it ..I was sunbathing this morning and Mr Kiefe was next to me getting tummy rubs ...what a life !!. Suzi our greyhound was trying to dig a hole in the garden while I was not looking and is now in the shade in a huff lol !!

I have been so inspired by Tina's Sketch at this month's Live & Love Crafts Challenge ..that it got my mojo going and I made a shabby wedding card. 

I have used the Magnolia Vintage wedding stamp and coloured them with distress inks and tried the cracked glass effect after seeing it here .........I also used sepia colours for the aged look . I have torn the papers on the edges and painted with Gesso to finish the Shabby look, I loved using the lace on the corner  from LLC and the beaded trim along the bottom of the fence strip.

I have made an envelope in which I have placed a Magnolia Jolly tag 
I have decorated the card with Pion Vintage garden papers and also some Magnolia papers for the feather and orchid die cuts.
I made some embellies using Martha Stewart clay and moulds which were frantaged with shabby White Embossing powder.

On the tag I cut the viewfinder die from Magnolia and used Kaisercraft sticker letters to spell out wedding  and Live & Love when you turn the wheel ! The gorgeous heart in the middle is also from LLC.

I hope you like my creation

Pop Up Mini ;0)

Hi Crafty Bloggers 

How are we all ? I have been crafting away today ....I had seen Elizabeth's pop up card and thought it would be a great idea to use that with the Magnolia mini's . I had ordered the minis by mistake but I am quite happy as they are so so cute !!

I have masked Tilda with Spritz pocket and fountain and coloured a sky and some grass .I cut the frame using a Spellbinders die. The stunning floral paper with butterflies is from Magnolia . 

I have used the coffee lace ,peony and peacock feather Magnolia dies cut with the same design paper and added some Gesso. The gorgeous beaded trim is from Live & Love Crafts ,the flower centre and sparkly ribbon and small roses are from The Ribbon Girl.

I have a Magnolia jolly tag as the pull mechanism so she pops up !!

Lastly I have used the Magnolia Text stamp Especially for you and butterfly stamp inside  to make my own backing paper.

I hope you like my pop up card ...and minis !!
