LDRS Polkadoodles Sending Wishes

Today's card showcases some gorgeous papers from the Maja "Celebrations" collection but I do have another layer under the image and then realized I had covered it right up!!  Dang!!  LOL!  I also covered up a gorgeous Marianne Design die called "Creatable Lace Border" - urgh!!  So I'll tell you all about everything else that you CAN see.  hee hee 


My bouquet on this side consists of a wooden bark heart, some meadow spray, Wild Orchid flowers and a seam binding bow.  I managed to sneak in a white bon bon too.  😏 


These LDRS Polkadoodle images are sooooo sweet!  I've colored her with Copics and even used YELLOW!!   I challenged myself and I love the way it turned out.  I'm happy to report I can see yellow in my future colorings.  😀


Again more flowers and meadow spray along with a green fruit stamen in the mix.  I rolled up a tiny piece of paper and added a Prima wax bow to make it look like a letter, matching the image.


I just love these Joycraft canvas butterflies!  I've doubled mine up and added a Tim Holtz nib and more flowers.


As I am away on holidays, I have prepared this a month in advance so some items I've used may be out of stock by now.  If so, please email Tracy if you are looking for something you see here and it's not in the store.

Thanks so much for popping in!  I hope you find some crafty time this weekend!

LDRS Polkadoodles DANDELION WISH

A few weeks ago I shared a similar look using Pion's "Furry Friends" collection.  I loved it so much I had another go at it, this time using a colored image.  I've layered the image atop Joy's "Clock with Swirls" die and distressed all edges.  The die down the left side is also a Joy die called "Ornamental Border" die.


These laces are UH-MAZING!!!!   I normally have trouble with 2-tone anything but it just so happen to come along at the same time as those incredible papers so YES!!  The gorgeous lilac/cream lace is "Lace Alenco", which I previously mentioned there being another cream color available.  Here is a length of "Beaded Ivory Pearl" trim.  This stuff is a bit tricky to crop so I added some Glossy Accents on the ends of the thread and had no problems and didn't lose any pearls.  


OH MY FLOWERS!!  I finally got a chance to play with my new die from Fantasy "Openwork Rose 2".  I used some apple white Foamiran and colored with some Tim Holtz distress cubes - lilac.  I even made the green leaves from Foamiran as well.


This image is ADORABLE from LDRS's latest release from Polkadoodles called "Dandelion Wish". 


My sentiment is on a die from Joy "Vintage Flourish Notes" die.  Overtop I layered with a few Wild Orchid Craft flowers, a seam binding bow and Wycinanka's "Lace Decor" chipboard.


Thanks for coming by again!
Have a great week!

Hugs,
Eulanda

Have The Micest Day

What I like about today's card is the image from LDRS called "Have the Micest Day" cuz


Have you checked out the sale section lately?  WOW!  There is a TON of stuff there but also check out the "JUST IN" section too.  There's all kinds of new goodies!!!  I think for as long as our winter has been we need some retail therapy to help us through it.  LOL!!

I've used some gorgeous papers from Maja's "Summertime" collection and added a pretty die from Marianne Design "Creatable Lace Border".  I would have love to of shown more but my cards don't seem to work out that way.  hee hee 


Here are some pretties from the shop like the cream colored fruit stamens, the Joycraft burlap heart, some Wild Orchid Craft flowers and a BON BON!   Come on now, let's all say it together:
"IT'S HER FAVORITE!!"  Thank you!  😁😁😁


This metal clip is soooooo uber cute and a pretty decent size too!


I've added a cute little "Hello" sentiment held by a memo pin and added a cute little organza bow.


That's all I have to share today so thanks so much for popping by!
Have a wonderful day!

Hugs!

Noor April Challenge

And we're back with another Noor! Design UK challenge!

FLOWERS!!!

How easy is that?!!!  I love easy ones!!  Check out the prize as well.  They're always awesome!! 

Awwwwww such cuties!!  This image and these papers are from Pion's "Our Furry Friends" collection.  Super super gorgeous collection.  I've added some amazingly sensational laces called "Lace Tilda" and "Lace Alencon" which also comes in a cream color.  I'm loving this new butterfly border from Joy "Butterfly Edge 2".  I've made 2 layers and popped some flowers on top.  


Fantasy has some gorgeous foliage dies out and the bottom left one in this pic and in the below pic are called "After the Rain Twig" and the top is "Berry Twig 2".  The 2 leaves on the right are from Joy but there are 4 leaves on the die (2 larger and 2 smaller) called "Vintage Flourish Beech Leaves".  I've added a few flowers from the shop and a cute yellow fruit stamen.  There is quite a variety of colors to choose from for those ones.  


I added some string to a miniature wooden spool because what little kittens don't like playing with string?  😀  And here again more gorgeous flowers, a BON BON (hee hee again my favorite), some stunning decorative glistening berries (more colors available) and a dazzling vintage filagree floral button.


Well I hope you can join our challenge this month!   Flowers are so perfect with spring right around the corner!!  Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate!

Have a wonderful weekend and see you next week!
Hugs,

Tilda Throws Away Hearts

I CAN'T HELP MYSELF I'M ADDICTED!!   To the Maja "Celebrations" collection and WOW it's stunning!!!  I also like that it has some black in it so I can use that as one of my colors.  Rather striking I think.  Isn't that black lace gorgeous?!  When I saw this paper I knew right away what I'd be adding.  LOL!


Guess what?!!  This Joy die - 12 point square die - is on SALE!!!  I'd grab one while their still available.  What a great staple die to have in your stash.  I added some flowers from the shop as well as the Paris wooden stamp and a wax cord bow.  I've also adhered the cutest Joycraft burlap butterfly and popped a rose right on top.


For this bouquet I've added some Tim Hotlz filmstrip, more flowers from the shop and a few springs of Fantasy's "Branch of Seals" die.  I even gesso'ed (is that a word?  😀) the whole card.


And this cute Maggie is called "Tilda Throws Away Hearts" which I've colored with my copics.


Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful week
and weekend!

Hugs,
Eulanda

Wonderful Tilda

I'm back again with another card using Maja's "Celebration" collection.  I love that these papers always come with 3 or 4 different colors so you get a huge variety to play with.  Have you seen Marianne's new die "Creatable Lace Border"?!  It's the one running vertical, cut from white cardstock.  It's quite wide so an amazing piece to use for layering!  I hope to show more of it next time I use it.  LOL!  


I love making these bouquets, you know it!!!  hee hee But they are more fun WITH THE BON BON'S!   You know how much I love these little things so you'll probably see them on many many more cards to come.  I've added some sisal behind all of it ....OH!!  And have you seen the new colors of sisal in the store?  FUN FUN FUN!!  I have mine coming what about you?  I also added some metal leaves, which are amazing because they are so bendable and you can shape them any way you want without breaking them.  


Isn't she sweet?!!  Magnolia's "Wonderful Tilda" and wonderful she is!


So this lace heart actually comes as a length of hearts but I chose to cut one off and use it on it's own.  The glass heart is filled with glitter ... or as my card story goes, it's fairy dust for later.  LOL!


I hope you have a great weekend and get in some crafty time!!
Thanks for stopping by!

Maja Design "Celebration"

I'm so excited to be playing with the new papers from Maja Design called "Celebration".  I don't normally use BLACK, cuz it's not so soft and kinda in your face but it seemed rather appropriate in a classic sort of way for this anniversary card.  


Doesn't any celebration card need some straws?!  I think so too!!  LOL!  In my stash I found this puffy feather so I layered some sisal underneath a die cut of Joy's "Clock with swirls", which by the way, is a rather amazing piece!!  I have to hide any cards with feathers as I've learned that if I leave them lying out, someone in the house eats them.  I learned that a long time ago when I came home one day to find my card eaten up by my super sweet cutie cat.  My reaction?  GASP!!!  🙀  I couldn't even get mad at him as it was hours later and how would he know why he was getting into trouble by then.  Lesson learned!  LOL!


I added a clip holding another small pic from the ephemera page, then added a JoyCraft heart and a Fantasy die called "Berry Twig 2".



Thanks for stopping by!!

Celebration Party

I couldn't resist playing with some more winter/Christmas stuff.  I KNOW I KNOW but it's my favorite time of year.  😀  And shouldn't we be getting ahead?  LOL!!  I've used Maja's "Joyous Winterdays" collection to make a little scene and Joy's "Elk" die for a little bit of wildlife.  I figured if I threw in some white pom pom lace on, it might look like snowballs.


These are some smaller images from the "Joyous Winterdays" ephemera sheet.  I also die cut a little forest using the design papers with Joy's "Happy Holiday Pine Tree" dies.  Ooooo and I've added an organza bow and popped a rose on top.  There is quite a selection of new laces in the shop so if you haven't seen them, you really must check them out.  (swoon 💓)


This is Tilda from the Magnolia collection "Christmas Party", which I've colored with Copics.  You can see my candy canes in this pic and those plus the sentiment are also from the same collection so if you missed out on them, there is still stock in the store.


Ok next week no Christmas.  LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!

March Noor! Design UK Challenge

YAY!!  IT'S CHALLENGE TIME

SPRING!

OMG I need me some spring so bad so I was very happy to see this challenge come up.  😀  I'm back with some Mintay papers that I haven't shared yet called "Celebrations".  Some sheets have cute cupcakes and presents on them but I am LOVING playing with the teals and peaches.  I've added a gorgeous row of two ribbons this time, "Chiffon Rose w/Pearl" and "Lace Giselle".


Isn't this banner cute?  It's a die by Fantasy called "Bunting w/Hearts" and guess what?  IT'S ON SALE!   I love this piece and use it quite often.  A great die to have in your stash.  I've added a few butterflies from JoyCraft, which I layered up for more dimension and popped a flower in the center to kind of finish it off.  


I can't seem to get enough of the Polkadoodles!  Again here is Winnie w/Cupcake, which I've colored using my Copics.  I would love a cupcake that size!!  LOL!


And here is my usual bouquet filled with numminess (it's a word today - 😀) from the store,  filled with Wild Orchid flowers and a gorgeous antique bronze flower, as well as some new fruit stamens. 


I hope you can enter our monthly challenge as Tracy keeps it easy!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week!

Tilda w/Flower in her Pocket

I did want to have this ready for last week with Valentine's and all but I just couldn't get my flowers finished on time!!  Life!  It gets in the way of my crafting time!!  So annoying.  ha ha ha ha!  

I've used some gorgeous Maja Design papers that are still in the shop from the Summertime collection.  Sigh...I just love them!!!  I layered some lace but then when I was finished was thinking "OH MY! Where did my lace go?!!" LMBO!  Well, it is there and I've used Lace Daisy, Lace Winnie and get this LACE TILDA!!  hee hee!!  😊  Pretty appropriate since I have used Magnolia's Tilda w/Flower in her Pocket.  Don't forget to check out the selection of Magnolia's in stock and the newest collection "You are Invited".


These Foamiran flowers were made using Rosy Owls flower dies and leaves.  I figured out a new way of shaping them quite by accident.  ha ha ha!  Love that!  I also used a great variety of stamens, which maybe doesn't quite replicate anything real but it's FUN and pretty!!  


Here I've used one of the moulds in the shop just to press out a pattern to give it some foliage lines.  So cute!  I added a wax prima bow and a cute little gold tassel.


HOW ADORABLE IS THIS?!!!  So shiny and pretty!!!


Thanks for stopping by today!!

Enjoy the rest of your week, weekend and
I hope you find some crafty time!

Lolie and Shellie

Today I'm back to share some more Mintay papers from the "Together" collection.  I'm really enjoying playing with colors I don't normally use so the challenge has been fun!!  I started by using those Joy "Ornamental" borders and layered up.  I even layered some of the new gorgeous laces available in the store.   They are pretty!  Even their names are pretty with Lace Aria, Lace Darcia and some Beaded Ivory Pearl Trim.  I also used my new favorite die (under my image) called "Clock with Swirls".  What a stunning piece!! 


Eeeeeee back with the flowers!!  Again tho, I am so excited to be using the BON BON's!!!  And of course the spirals but BOTH are available in a gorgeous array of colors so there's something for everyone!!  Or one of every color.  hee hee  😀😀


In the 6 x 6 paper pad there are a few extra sheets that have some designs you can cut out, like these air balloons.  There is also a sheet of tags....well, you might call them something else but I used one and added a little "HELLO" sentiment.


Oh and here's a Whimsy image called Lolie and Shellie who I've colored using Copics.  Oh she's just a darling!


Thanks so much for popping in!!
Hugs!
