Mother of the Bride Thank You Card



Hello folks, just popping by to share a Mother of the Bride Thank You card with co-ordinating box that I was asked to make, the Mother of the Groom card will follow soon.

The colour scheme for the wedding in question was White, Silver, Beige and Taupe/Pink and this is what I came up with. I'm not usually one for Mirri Card, (plus it's a nightmare to photograph), but seems to fit the bill when making special occasion cards. 

The flowers are all made using Spellbinders dies.


A close up of the details and embellishments.

    


Here's what the inside looks like




Thanks for taking the time to visit my lil oasis. Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Happy Crafting

Magnolia's Romantic Tilda with Parasol

Happy Sunday afternoon peeps.  It was my day off on Friday so thought I would spend some time colouring in my craft room,  been ages since I did that.  I've coloured all  the below Magnolia images with Copics, added some Glamour Dust, then heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder, I really like how the heat embossing makes the colours pop.




  For the card below I've used Magnolia's Romantic Tilda with Parasol, isn't she a lil cutie. Just a shame about my awful photography and poor lighting conditions, (I blame the dreadful weather we are having, it's so dark, wet and dreary today), as this isn't a true likeness to the real colours. Now to make up some more cards with the remaining coloured images......


I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Midweek Magnolia - Autumn colours
Tildas Town - Fall is in the air
Craft your passion - Autumn/Fall colours
Dutch Magnolia Lovers - Anything Goes
House of Gilli - Anything Goes/Fall
Lexi's creations - Autumn Colours

Thanks for popping by my lil oasis.

A Saturated Canary girly cards


Hiya peeps, long time no see........again. Life has been a bit nuts around here lately, but hey what's new...lol. I did manage to sneak some "me time" a few days ago to create these girly cards.  Forgotten what good therapy crafting is, really need to get back into setting some more time for me in my lil craft room.

I've coloured all the Saturated Canary images with Copics, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder, not done that for such a long time, think it makes the colours pop so this may be a regular for me, well albeit when I get chance to craft that is.







 Just a quickie post from me this evening.  I have got some more cards to share, will do that soon.

Luv 'n' crafty hugs

New to Saturated Canary Little Darling stamps

Hiya folks, anyone remember me?  It's been so many months since I ventured into my craft room to create anything at all that I almost forgot what to do.  Also I have missed out on so many wonderful new products that it's hard keeping track of what's new.  Can you believe that I didn't know about these new Little Darling stamps, I thought they were from the Simply Sassy range....oh have I got a lot to learn....pmsl.  So I treated myself to a few of these beauties and this is what I have created so far.

The first card I am entering into Bunny Zoe's monthly challenge "Flowers and Pearls".  I've coloured her with Copics.  The papers are Melissa Frances, 


This is my second attempt, have to say these Little Darlings sure live up to their names, they are adorable.  Again I've coloured her with Copics.  The papers are Basic Grey.  Went for the "not so fussy" approach  and kept this card quite plain and simple.

I hope you've all been keeping well.  Things have been not so good around here for a while which is why I've not been around, but  there's light at the end of the tunnel and as the song goes "Things can only get better". So hopefully that means I get more time in my craft room, fingers crossed :-)

Take care all
lots of luv 'n' hugs
