Theodore & Bella

Pion's "Theodore and Bella" collection was one of the cutest ever!  Just the perfect papers to have on hand for a little kids birthday, a baby card and or just a sweet card for anyone really.  The borders 12 x 12 have the "Love You to the Moon and Back" sentiment and a few other great ones.  

Here is my usual bouquet of flowers using a gorgeous pixie bloom, open roses and a glass strawberry.   If you've been following me you'll know those are one of my favorite little additions.  I used some chipboard from Scrapiniec's "Fantasma Frames and Borders" and cut one of the pieces up to use throughout the card.  I even colored them with a TH dauber.  

See the straw colored threads underneath?  That's called sisal.  I've never seen or heard of it before but I'm likin' it!   Again some more Scrapiniec chipboard, amazing flowers and a pretty vintage filigree button. Another one of those ones that you just want to hoard.  LOL!

A friend's daughter just had twins so this card is going to her.  Yup that kind of holds a special place in my heart as most of you know that I am one.  😊  It's a boy and a girl and I love when that happens to people.  

Enjoy your weekend!

Where the Roses Grow/Ephemera.

Good morning.

I am sharing with you today a card I made using Pion Designs Where the Roses Grow papers. - Roses in Bloom.

I chose this gorgeous  lady from a selection of Ephemera images by Maja Designs, Sofiera. If you click on the link below you can view the rest of the images. These images are really suited to the Scrapiniec Chipboard which are the decorative borders from the Royal collection. 

The flowers include Blossoms, Roses in various colours and sizes, Rose Buds, Berries, Poppy, Chrysanthemum. Again, they are all linked at the bottom of the post. Added to the flowers are some leaves cut from the Studio Light beautiful flowers leaf edge die. This is still my all time favourite leaf die.

I added pearl string to the top and bottom of the image and let me tell you, it is driving me nuts looking at it as it is not straight along the top. I am going to try an unstick and re-stick it. Do you think I have a touch of OCD?

I tucked into the flowers above a bronze filigree butterfly and below is a bronze Antique leaf.

Thank you all for stopping by.

See you soon,

Hugs Sharon. x

Hold You Close

Well I felt a little whimsical, which I suppose is perfect since I'm using a Whimsy stamp.  hee hee  Isn't she cute?!  This image is called "Hold You Close" and I paired her up with Studio Light's #49 paper pad.  The gorgeous dragonfly is from Wycinanka and the little fence is from Scrapiniec "Mama's Porch Windows".  I used a rather bold color to paint the fence with (jury is still out on that one - LOL) and then added a cute little ladybug charm from the store to crawl around on it.  

Here's one of my peony Foamiran flowers with a few WOC flowers and a silver birch bark heart painted with gesso to shabby it up. 

And a second view of the peony flower.  😀

Another little bouquet with all kinds of pieces from the shop including some wax cord.  I may have mentioned this before but I have to say, it's really nice to shape.  Oh did you like the straw I used too?  Those are fun to use!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a great week!
