Time For A Coffee Break

I had a lot of fun with this card!!  The color combo, the die cuts, the extra's but especially this image from LDRS "Time For A Coffee Break".  SO CUTE!  I started with picking all my dies.  The first one is the new Joy border "Carved With Flowers".  I added flowers to mine but underneath, the die cuts the flowers and they pop up.  The 2nd is the Joy "Oval Decorative Floral Frame" on the right side of the card under my bouquet.  The third is a Joy "Fancy Flower Edge" die and is out of stock but if you like it, Tracy can order you one.

I've had this rusty tin corrugated heart for awhile and finally managed to figure it into a card.  Now that I have, I want more!  They are so cool!!  😀  I tried not to cover it a whole lot so just added a sweet lace bow and some Marianne tassels.  

I was at it again making some more blue and brown Foamiran flowers.  I used my rolled flower die, (which is a different brand, however there is a Joy one available on the store - just sayin'  😀) and popped a pearl in the center over top some glitter stamens.

Did you happen to notice the layers of lace at the bottom of the card?  There are some new ones in the store a few weeks ago.  You must see them  - so stunning!!  

Thank you for coming by again!!

Cuddle Mice

This card was fun to make but after I was finished I thought I should have made it into a canvas!  7" x 7" (almost 18cm x 18cm) and I still managed to have embellishments fall outside of that measurement! Well my thinking was that I wanted to added lots of embellishments but I also wanted to show some of Maja Design's gorgeous "Vintage Romace" papers.  Ummm....well I tried!!!  LOL!

The image is from Whimsy Stamps called "Cuddle Mice".  It reminds me of how I feel these days with this winter just dragging.  I just want to stay in bed!  LOL!!  But WOW did it ever take me awhile.  Ok BUT there were 2 contributing factors.  I am a little slow as I'm still practicing my distress inks and also there was a hockey game on tv.  ha ha ha!!  The hockey game was 3 hours but I still wasn't finished however, I was pretty satisfied with how it turned out.  Time well spent I thought.  hee hee  I added some "Diamond Dust"glitter to the pom pom on the hat and over the grey flooring.  FUN!!!  

I know I've said it before but I LOVE these metal leaves!!  You can bend and shape them quite easily so they have a lot of form to them.  Seems the Marianne die is a "go to" for me right now but it's just the perfect shape and size for layering.  After I added the WO English roses I put some glitter on those as well.  OH AND I added more to the miniature glass jar.  Those are fun too!

The Marianne "tassel dies" are so easy to make but adding them under the "filigree flat back pearl", wax cord bow and seam binding bow seemed like the perfect addition.  

I hope you've enjoyed this one!  I know I did!

I'm entering this card into Whimsy's challenge:
Anything Goes!
(With an optional twist of Easter.)

Time to Sparkle

Isn't this image just the cutest?!!  You can preorder her and many others on the Noor store right now and you should see the selection!!  KA-UTE!!!  I used the Lemon Craft "Just Love Me" papers and added some hints of lime green.  I haven't tried this color combo ....well for as long back as I remember but I love how it turned out!  I added three layers of laces (see below) and some pearls (top and bottom).
I used my Copics to color this image and framed her in a Scrapiniec "Doily Lace Oval Frame".  At the moment I don't think this one is in stock, however if you would like it just let Tracy know.  Also, there are still some other frames in the store that are equally as gorgeous!
In behind the bouquet I layered Marianne's "Design Doily Star" and wow does it ever cut nicely!!  I've also added some glass strawberries, WO flowers, glistening berries and those stunning pink flowers are from Prima. 
Well isn't this a springy card if you ever saw one?!!  I love it!  Made me feel good to make it even tho it was snowing at the time.  Urgh!!  Each week I complain about winter, I'm hoping I'm complaining for the last time...only to find out I'm not!!  LOL!!  Thank goodness for crafts!!  hee hee
