Birthday Wishes

Hello, sweet friends! I hope you're enjoying a lovely weekend! I'm posting today on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog, sharing a wee bit of birthday inspiration for a dear friend's special day. ♥︎

Speaking of birthdays, I was blessed with some amazing crazy gifts on Friday for mine and I couldn't wait to put some to use!
My focal point is made up of dreamy Sue Wilson dies (Maddie and Lauren), which were part of a gift! I love them so much. My friend loves elegance and sweetness, so I paired beautifully ruffly white blossoms with darling Rose Pink roses. Isn't that a gorgeous shade of pink? ♥︎ It is perfect for my Maja Design papers. The heart paper is from Vintage Baby, while the rest are from Vintage Summer Basics.
I continue to be enamored with the relatively new White Lotus flowers... the abundance of sunshiny yellow nestled in the centers is irresistible. ♥︎ I have nestled it alongside a Chrysanthemum, which has long been one of my all-time favorite WOC blooms. 
For the center detailing, adorable miniature sweetheart blossoms accompany Rose Pink roses, to which I added a tiny trail of pearls. I hope she loves it.

Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful day! ♥︎

Baby Love ♥︎

Hello, sparkly friends! I am in the midst of moving (a happy thing!) but will be checking in very soon! I hope your weekend is as beautiful as your hearts! I'm sharing a sweet little Welcome Baby card on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog today. This is also my contribution for the 10/31 challenge at Deep Ocean, where our theme is Inspired by a Song/Movie!

Is there anything more precious than baby love (and sweet lullabies)? ♥︎
To celebrate the new arrival, I have used several of Wild Orchid Crafts' dreamy blues. The pastel and antique blue blossoms are a favorite of mine (especially for wintry creations). ♥︎ My darling papers are from LemonCraft's Tiny Miracles. Oh how these make my heart dance! The sweetest little baby is tucked within a sparkling Wycinanka chipboard frame. I paired it with a stunning Ornate Lace 3D embossing folder from Crafter's Companion.
For a trio of larger delights, I have paired the new Lotus with a Trellis Rose and a Magnolia. The Mixed Pastel Magnolias collection is truly magnificent. ♥︎ For additional touches of blue, I nestled in Aster Daises, Lilies, and Cherry Blossoms.
My card base was made with Sue Wilson's Ornate Pierced Design in her Noble collection. It is a lovely set! It is trimmed in my favorite polka dot ruffle lace. My sentiment is from My Craft Spot (no longer in business.) 

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a wonderful day! ♥︎

Blossoming Love

Happy October, precious friends! I hope you're having a blessed weekend. I'm excited to tell you that I continue to improve and made this card yesterday with the smallest amount of pain in years. It brings tears to my eyes! Thank you for the endless love you've shown me. :)

I'm posting today on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog, sharing a love card featuring the newest WOC rose: Chelsea! Aren't they stunning? I incorporated two ivory chelsea roses and I am thoroughly enamored with them. ♥︎
The large pink magnolias are from the pastel magnolia set. They are perfectly dreamy and pair beautifully with the chelsea roses. The gorgeous shade of pink also appears in several other flowers, with the sweet cherry blossom being my favorite. ♥︎
Nestled up top is a white Lotus, which is also a recent addition to WOC. The blossoming heart trails downward to miniature sweetheart blossoms and tiny rosebuds. The edges of my flowers are painted in sweet sparkle. ♥︎
My gorgeous papers are from LemonCraft's Just Love Me collection (it's nearly all used up now!), while the pretty chipboard elements are from Wycinanka. The heart die-cut is from Crafter's Companions Love is in the Air set. Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful day! ♥︎

Hugs,
Karen ♥︎

Snowy Christmas

Hello, sweet friends! I hope your week is off to a sparkly start! I'm posting today on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog, sharing a snowy Christmas inspiration.

I used Foamiran for my poinsettia, which has a lovely soft effect; perfect for a peaceful Christmas. :) For a festive pop of red, my poinsettia is centered with a red bead berry spray.♥️
Cascading from either side are babies breath fabric flowers. Their wispiness and pearly elegance make my heart dance! Although the white option is currently out of stock, the pale blue is available and would be stunning for wintry Christmas creations.♥️
I created a ruffly lace snowdrift, lined with my favorite flat-back pearl string, before nestling in a Wycinanka chipboard Christmas tree. Self-adhesive pearls were sprinkled atop.♥️The sentiment is from My Craft Spot (no longer in business), which is cut out with a Spellbinders banner die and trimmed with lace.
Tucked within my floral arrangement are pearl snowflakes and frosted berries. The sparkling iciness of winter is magical.♥️The pretty papers are from Pion Design's The Night Before Christmas.
Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful day. :)♥️

Beautiful Friend

Hello, treasured friends! I am posting a friendship card today on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog, which features Foamiran flowers. This is my first time working with them and I enjoyed it immensely.♥︎
For my first try, I used Rosy Owl-Heart Flower dies with pink and purple foam. I am eager to experiment with coloring white foam, but I do love these vibrant shades of pink and purple. They are pure happiness.♥︎ My chippies are from Wycinanka, while my papers are from LemonCraft's Tiny Miracles. Oh how dreamy they are. ♥︎
The large flowers are centered with white and pink bead berry sprays, while the smaller flower nestled between them is centered with pearl stamens. I incorporated lovely flowers of pink, purple, and sunshiny yellow into my arrangement.
Tucked within my flowers are my favorite leaves... the light green and baby pink combination makes for the sweetest foliage possible.♥︎ Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful day!

Celebrating Love

Hello, precious friends! I hope you're having a beautiful day. I will be visiting you this week, which fills me with endless joy. I'm popping in with a quick post, as I am on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog with a sweet little love card. ♥︎
Blue and pink is one of my (many) favorite color combinations, so I topped my Maja Design sky blue paper with sweet pink and pristine white. Wild Orchid Crafts pinks are irresistible. ♥︎ My chipboard sentiment is from Wycinanka.
Gorgeous Pink Mist Cottage Roses called to me for this occasion. They are exceptionally beautiful, especially for a romantic card. Nestled amongst them are a variety of flowers, blossoming in love. ♥︎ Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms are too adorable for words, so I tucked in a few.
A stunning Filigree Metal Corner brings a touch of shiny elegance, while Pink Tulip vintage seam binding adds a ruffle of softness. ♥︎ The darling butterfly is a Sue Wilson die.

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful day! ♥︎

Sweet Christmas

Hello, treasured friends! Thank you for the endless love and well-wishes. I remain in the midst of this healing journey, so I am not yet back as I'd like. With all of my heart, I pray to be soon!

I'm posting today on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog, sharing a wee bit of sweet Christmas. I have a beautiful stash of red WOC goodies which had sadly been neglected. They inspired this festive creation using darling papers from Pion Design's The Night Before Christmas. ♥️
I especially love the deep reds, which are perfectly rich for traditional holiday colors. The red bead berry sprays are delightful accents, while the cherry blossoms remind me of warm-centered poinsettias. (That's my excuse for using these sweet blossoms in a Christmas card.) ;) ♥️
The Cruise Beige vintage seam binding is centered with one of my favorite embellishments: Flat-back Pearls in a Diamond Circle. How stunning is the deep red, bursting with Christmas love.♥️ My sentiment is trimmed with the ever-versatile White Net Lace. The sweet scene is framed with a Wycinanka Blueberry Swirls chippie.
Oh the beauty of Wild Orchid Craft flowers.♥️ Some lovely pearl snowflakes are also nestled within.
My card base and coordinating filigree layer are from Sue Wilson's Delicate Garden set. Thank you for visiting and I wish you a blessed day!♥️
