Ribbon Girl DT - Ranunculus Headband

 Good morning!  Today I'd like to share with you an altered headband I made for my daughter using some gorgeous new flowers from The Ribbon Girl.
 These gorgeous Ranunculus flowers are available in white, lilac and pink and are perfect for larger projects.
 I have covered the headband by wrapping pale pink seam binding from The Ribbon Girl tightly around it.
Here's a close up of the centres of the flowers.  They are so beautiful!
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

All About Magnolia DT - All About Doohickeys


Good morning!  Our challenge this month over on the All About Magnolia challenge blog is 'All About Doohickeys'.  A great excuse to use all of those gorgeous dies.  I decided to make my entire card with Doohickey dies!  Apart from the centre chipboard circle, everything has been made with Doohickeys.

The shape of the card was cut with a Doohickey from the Vintage #1 kit.  The gorgeous butterfly in the centre of the Scrapinex circle from The Ribbon Girl was cut with the Butterfly Doohickey.  I have topped the butterfly with a heart from my stash.

The flowers were all made with the Peony Petals Doohickey and beaded stamens from my stash.

The leaves were cut with the Rose Leaf Doohickey and the swirls with the Heart Swirl Doohickey.

I have also used several tag Doohickeys: Heart Tag, Tilda's Ticket, Vintage Tag and a frame from Doohickey Kit #9.  All of the die cuts were inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink before assembly.

I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at All About Magnolia.  Pop over to the challenge blog to see the gorgeous cards from the rest of the team.

Thanks for looking and enjoy your week! x

Magnolia-licious DT - The Store is Open!!!!

Good morning!  I'm very excited to announce that the Magnolia-licious store has re-opened today!!  The store is under new management and I feel incredibly lucky to have been asked to return as one of their designers.  To celebrate the launch all of the design team have made a card.
One of my other hobbies is archery so I decided to ink up Sagittarius Tilda for my card and given her red hair.  She is painted with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I've added stickles to her arrow tip.
The sentiment is from Stempelglede's Follow Your Heart stamp set and the scroll stamp around the edges of the image mat is from Stempelglede's Vintage Garden set.  
The butterfly was fussy cut from some Pion Design papers.
The flowers and leaves are from my stash and the cheesecloth is from The Ribbon Girl.
The leaves were cut with a Doohickey die from kit 9 and the gorgeous straws are from Craft Heaven.
The stunning guipure lace is from The Ribbon Girl.

Ribbon Girl DT - Anything Goes

 Good morning!  We're back after our summer break at The Ribbon Girl and here's my card for our latest 'Anything Goes' challenge.  I've used some absolutely stunning papers by Craft & You's Rose Garden paper pad.

 In the other corners I've used a Stempelglede post mark stamp from the Follow Your Heart collection.

Midweek Magnolias DT - #146 Anything Goes

Good morning!  Today I'm excited to share my first creation for the Midweek Magnolias Challenge.  I was thrilled to be asked to join the team earlier this month, thank you ladies!  I was asked to make a new baby boy card and it was the perfect opportunity to ink up an old Magnolia stamp that I couldn't resist buying a few months ago but hadn't got around to using.
I painted Lille Skut with Distress Inks and used a white gel pen for the dots on his cheeks.
I've used lots of Doohickey Dies on this card.  The rocking horse and star swirl are both from Doohickey kits.  The flowers are from my stash.
I've also used the baby romper suite Doohickey and added some seam binding from The Ribbon Girl and a wooden button from my stash.
The balloons were cut with another Doohickey die...
...and so was the cute teddy bear face! 
The heart button, cheesecloth and rose ruffle trim are all from The Ribbon Girl.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Midweek Magnolias.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.  Thanks for looking! x

Ribbon Girl DT - Teapot Album

 Good morning!  I have the front of an album to share with you today using lots of gorgeous goodies from The Ribbon Girl.  As soon as I saw these gorgeous papers from Crafts & You's Rose Garden paper pad I knew I wanted to use them to cover this album.  I've had it years but hadn't found the papers I had in mind until now.
 All of the gorgeous flowers peeping out from under the teapot lid are from The Ribbon Girl except the hydrangeas which are by Prima.
 The gorgeous lace and cameo frame are also from The Ribbon Girl.  I painted the cameo frame with white paint and distressed it with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  The cameo itself is from my stash.
 I have tied several ribbons and laces from The Ribbon Girl to the ring clip, and added a bronze key charm from The Ribbon Girl too.
 I have added tiny stamens to some of the hydrangeas.

 I will show you in a future post how the teapot lid lifts off and the inside of the album.
 I've also added some hydrangeas to other parts of the album that are visible from the front.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
