Sweet Christmas

Happy Friday, sweet friends! I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, where we've been playing with Pion Design's new Christmas in Norway paper collection. It's a nice combination of whimsical and elegance.

I opted for the sweeter side, using one of the little Christmas darlings. ♥︎
Fluttering snowflakes surround him, where graduating pearls connect Pearl Snowflakes from the Sunflower Pearl Trim. The beautiful Pearl Lace with Beads lines the bottom as snow. My base is made with Spellbinders Timeless Rectangle. The ultra sparkly snowflakes and fern are Magnolia dies.
My festive arrangement rests atop Coco lace and includes sweet cinnamon sticks, which I've sprinkled with Glamour Dust and tied with red Natural Hemp. Tucked in and around are sparkling Beaded Pomegranate Apples in Cranberry Sauce. The sentiment is cut down from one of the Borders and trimmed in Glamour Dust (as are most things)!
A peek inside to show the precious All in a Row paper, which I love for its red and green heart-shaped snowflakes. ♥︎

Thank you for fluttering on by! Have a beautiful weekend. :o)

Autumn at Deep Ocean Challenge!

Hello, sweet and sparkly friends! I hope your week is off to a beautiful start. :o)

Speaking of beautiful, today begins a new challenge at Deep Ocean Challenge and we are celebrating Autumn! My heart sparkles ever brighter as the landscape changes into the loveliest color palette, with leaves pirouetting in the crisp Autumn breeze.
I pulled out my favorite seasonal goodies for my card, which will serve to bring a moment of joy to a battling heart. The papers are from Maja Design's Walking in the Forest, which I've paired with a sweet sentiment from My Craft Spot's Fall Leaves (no longer produced). The pumpkins, acorns, leaves, and beautiful border are MCS dies and no longer produced. (Still sad about that.) 
The trims and charms are from Live & Love Crafts: Burlap Trim, Natural Hemp, and darling pine cone charms. The base of my sentiment and fence dies are from Joy! Crafts. My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The inked leaves are coated in Tim Holtz Clear Rock Candy Crackle Paint for a touch of authenticity, which was fun. I hope the recipient enjoys this card as much as I did making it for her. ♥︎

Thank you for twirling on by! Be sure to check out what my inspiring teamies created for the challenge and I hope you play along with us, too. Have a blessed day. :o)

Paris Love

Hello, sweet friends! I hope you're having a lovely week. I'm on the Live & Love Crafts blog today with my take on Sandy's theme of Bon Voyage. :o)

My heart instantly leapt to Paris! ♥︎ This will soon be shipped off to encourage the dreams of a heartbroken mother.
I used Pion Design's Paris Flea Market for its beautiful pinks and elegance. The card base (Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles) and the Eiffel Tower (La-La Land Crafts) were made with Pink I from Pion's Palette collection. I love these heavier weight solids that perfectly match their unique color palette. 
The Eiffel Tower was sprinkled with Shabby White Frantage. A slightly darker pink Tower was layered beneath to serve as its shadow. The Eiffel Tower charm is gorgeous and one of LLC's newest goodies. Ash Rose seam binding ruffles alongside the flowers. The postage stamp was made with My Craft Spot stamps and dies (no longer produced).
The green bottom layer and foliage (Magnolia Heart Swirls) are from Pion's Linneaus Botanical Journal. The mulberry butterfly is from Prima's Imago set, which flutters within a rose-accented doily. Wink of Stella sparkles atop the flowers and heart swirls. Pearls and lace are incorporated throughout, as always. Sandy has the loveliest selection of embellishments. ♥︎
Thank you for fluttering on by! Have a beautiful weekend. :o)
