Saturated Canary's Close to my heart

Good evening, thanks for dropping by.  I have a Saturated Canary image that I bought the other night (along with a few other cuties too).  This image is called close to my heart. I have used paper from Kaiser craft pad called true romance. TOP TIP: instead of buying expensive rhinestone buttons, try flattening out some bead caps with pliers and glue on a bevelled base rhinestone (you know the rhinestones that are not flat back... the point sits in the bead cap hole and secures it better)  I buy sew on rhinestones and remove the claw setting which is much cheaper that way!! The pram charm and ribbon slider are from ebay. flowers are WOC.

Copic colours:
BV 0000, 000, 20, 23, 25
E 000, 00, 04, 11, 21, 23, 25, 29, 41
R 00, 11, 20, 59
RV 34
G 99
YG 03, 63, 67

I would like to enter in to the following challenges:
Top Tip Tuesday: Use Kraft card (I matted my base and image with it)
Make it Monday: anything goes
Creative Knockouts: Tic Tac Toe- flowers, bling, ribbon.

Saturated Canary Charming

Good afternoon. Thanks for stopping by. Today I have a card using a Saturated Canary image called Charming.  I have the rubber stamp for this lady, but I do believe you can get her as a digi too!  I have used paper from the Kaiser craft pad called Madame Boutique.  I have used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and die cut a swirl using magnolia die. Usual acetate butterfly and diamontes splashed around for bling. This image was subject in a class I did with Alyce of Kit and Clowder, and I have worked on my folds, but still practicing, I think she has come up well without Alyce guiding me :-)

Criss Cross Card using Magnolia's Japanese Tilda

Hello! Boy it has been a long time since I've had time to do crafting and blogging, but have been able to get a few of these criss cross cards done.  something a little different than the standard open out card- I got the instructions from the talented Bev Rochester here.  I coloured up Magnolia's Japanese Tilda and have been practicing my colouring with the help of classes from Alyce of Kit and Clowder. Still not the best, but getting there :-)  I glued a big bow for the pull out part of the card.  the beads are threaded on to a piece of tiger wire which I threaded through the bow and secured with a silver crimp. Paper is from Bo Bunny's Serenity pad. The swirl is a magnolia die cut. Flowers and the cute resin butterflies are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
