the bunny is on his way....

Happy Friday peoples!

Now can you believe Easter is literally just round the corner. Heck this year is speeding by. Today's card is an interactive card, always a lot of fun to make but the best part is seeing peoples faces when they realise that an element moves.

I would like to enter the following challenges-

Sooo for this card and with Easter and Spring (autumn here but i still think spring is this time of year lol!) i could not resist using Little Hoppy again. Front and centre this time. He looks so peaceful and happy. I coloured Hoppy with Distress Inks. The papers are from the ever fabulous Pion Design.

Now for the interactive part. This is a super cool die from My Favourite Things Surf and Turf die. This allows you to make things move on the card...so I used it to make Hoppy spring along and over a fence lol. Its such a cool die and I feel this might be getting used a whole lot more- be warned!!!

The die cuts are all from Magnolia bar the ivy die climbing up the side which is from Noor! Design UK as is the 'Happt Spring' die cut.

The lace along the die at the bottom of the card is from my local haberdashery shop.

The flowers are divine and are a mix from Noor!Design UK  and Wild Orchid Crafts.

To finish off I added the new awesome Nuvo crystal drops, just dotted around on the leaves and die cuts and a metal charm of a hummingbird.

Hope you have a great weekend.

So...Im getting a bit more daring with my folds...I must admit it took me a while but now ive got it! and I love these cards! Folds arnt my forte but im really starting to get the hang of them! This is the tutorial link for the Book fold card  .For this card I used two stamps that I have had for a while on the front. I masked Little Hoppy with the Sunflower background both from Magnolia. I coloured both with Distress Inks. On the inside of the the card, I use two of the Tilda's from last years Spring release. They are both gorgeous but I adore Tilda with the dandelions. I dont think you can get any more Springtime/Easter than these popping up all over and the daffodils. Always beautiful around Easter.

The papers...arnt these sunflower papers just beautiful! these are from Pion Designs 'The songbird secret'. The sunflower paper is my fave of the collection.

Now I didnt go crazy on the die front or the embellies what with having such a masked large image on the front. I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I added a simple bow....another thing I need to get better at lol...bow-hopeless....to the front and popped a moonstone brad also from Wild Orchid crafts through the centre.

The lace...oh the lace...sigh...is stunning. Both of them are from Noor!Design UK. The ribbon rose lace i just popped on the top.

Hope you have a lovely weekend

Dawning of Spring


Hi!

Ok...so this might be a strange title considering that in Australia we are going into Autumn next but even though I have been here years I still think as this time of year as spring...I know....dont think I will ever not to be honest lol.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia- Anything goes
Fussy and Fancy Friday- Anything goes
All about Magnolia Challenge blog- All about your fave colours
Paradise of Stamps challenge blog- Spring
Midweek Magnolias- Bingo- Straight down middle and diagonal from top left

For the card I used a really boho chic Tilda in my mind...she is very floaty with her hair and the flowers in it. I think she is gorgeous and love the feel of this stamp. I coloured Tilda with Distress Inks. In the background you can see stamped in Pumice Stone Distress Ink some of the postage stamp images that Magnolia also do.

The papers are from the Pion Design collection 'Songbird Secrets' its a beautiful springtime collection and fast becoming one of my faves from them.

The dies are from Magnolia. I used Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The dream catcher is a new fave addition to my collection. Its from Scrapinic and I love it. The lace is from the beautiful Noor!Design UK.

I edged round the die cuts and the layers of the card with Distress Ink Vintage Photo.

Hope you have a great weekend.

down at the bottom of the garden...


Hi!

Hope everyone is well. Its bank hol monday here and been a warm one. A beautiful day but a warm on. Been nice and peaceful so perfect time to blog.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Midweek Magnolias - Bingo-- ive gone for straight down the middle!
Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge - Anything goes
lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia- anything goes
Magnolia Forever- Ribbon and lace
Deep Ocean Challenge blog- Add lace


This card is for a friend of ours who has recently found her perfect home...and she loves to garden so had to be something spring time-ish. I think we spend a great deal of our time talking about gardening and our latest trip to the garden centre. lol.

The card shape itself is a fun card... a push me pull me as i call it but it can be found here at its real name Double slider card.

The papers I used are from Pion Design and one of their latest 'Songbird secrets' and its such a beautiful collection of papers for Easter/Spring time. I used some garden theme stamps for the image which are all from Magnolia... Tulip wheelbarrow, Tilda with daffodils and Tilda working in the garden. All the images were coloured with Distress inks. On the wheelbarrow flowers I stamped these twice and cut them and added some double sided mounting foam to make them pop. On both Tilda's I added my latest obsession....Nuvo crystal drops which give a pearl like drop....and dotted these round. To add some more sparkle on the tulips I popped some orange flat back rhinestones.

The lace...ohhhh the lace is a rose ribbon lace and this is from Noor! Design UK and think I have this in each colour its just so pretty.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I popped a little dragonfly charm in among them.

To finish off I added some pale yellow lace through the holes to all you to pull the card and see the hidden images

Hope you have a great week.

Summer time and the living is easy....


Morning!

Happy Monday!

Hope we are all good and ready for the week ahead. Im back with another card and yes the title is another Ella Fitzgerald inspired title... i do love Ella!

I would like to enter my cards into the following challenges-

Magnolia-licious Challenge blog- Anything goes
Craft Heaven inspiration and challenge blog- Love is all around

So for this card I used some of my gorgeous Maja Sumertime papers. These are simply beautiful and its as usual often hard to choose which ones out of the collection to use. The Tilda I picked is 'Sakura Tilda' I love her little wink behind her bouquet of flowers! I coloured Tilda with Distress Inks.

Now for the dies... I used a lot of dies on this card but one of my new ones and its defo fabulous and I feel it might be getting a lot of use is from Stampin' Up. Its part of a bundle and its the heart die on the edge of the card....the great thing is that the inside part of the hearts move! So as you can see it twists to show the other side of the papers. I love the 3D option that this allows for. The small heats at the top and the arrows are also from this bundle. The other dies are from Magnolia. I used a corner punch, also from Stampin' Up, on the corners of this card.

The flowers are a mix of Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima, the largest of the flower is from that company. The charm is a ladies bonnet and it was in my stash.

The lace...of the lace..is just beautiful and is from Noor!Design UK as is ribbon rose on the top of it.

On the centre of the flowers that Tilda is holding I used another of my new obsessions...Nuvo Crystal Drops. I need more of these!! LOL.

Hope you have a great week ahead.

Surprise cake!!!!



Hiya guys

Well it feels like its been a while....again lol... I do have a good reason I promise and yet again its the garden! We have finallllllllly got the wood chip down jeez it was a long job but it looks super cute and we managed to get it done before the crazy heat came back-SCORE!

So today I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

In the Pink - Dies or punches
Midweek Magnolias- Anything goes with a Magnolia image
lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolias- Anything goes

This card is for a special bday...its my mother in laws 70th but dont tell her I told you! I wanted to try something a bit different so when I saw the My Favourite Things interactive cake die I fell in love. The die gives you all the pieces of the cake to make it interactive so all you have to choose is what you want to pop up from the top!

I used Elephant Show Tilda from the 'little Moscow circus' collection from a few year back...she is the perfect little lady to pop out from the top of the cake with her arms in the air its like she is shouting 'SURPRISE'. I coloured Tilda with Distress Inks. On her feathers I used Stickles Frosted Lace.

The papers are from Maja Design and I have been hanging on to these for a long time lol as I love them! But it is for a special bday!

I used one of my fave new toys...my corner rounder punch...on the edges of all the layers of the card body. The lace is from the gorgeous Noor! Design UK as is the pin that I used. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the fan charm was in my stash. I popped some rhinestone brads on the corners to add a bit more bling.

On the cake itself I used some Perfect Pearls to add dots of icing. The 70 is die cut in gold glitter paper and from a Tim Holtz die.

Inside I used a sentiment stamp from Lili of the valley stamps.

Hope you have a fab weekend ahead.
