Beautiful Day

Happy Friday, dear friends! I'm posting today on the Live & Love Crafts blog, sharing a card with Maja Design's Enjoying Outdoors paper collection. :o) This is to encourage a friend to see the beauty that surrounds her.
The colors are vibrant and beautiful, as my teamies have shown you. I celebrated the outdoor theme by using a sweet Prima resin birdhouse, which is embossed with Shabby Pink Frantage. Sandy's new Half Pearls form the birdhouse hanger and accent the flower clusters. The fussy-cut layered butterflies are also from the collection.
The wooden design (Singing in the Rain) is one of my favorites. Cheyenne Lace trims the bottom, which is topped with ivory Sunflower Pearl Trim. The collection inspires pretty pops of color, so Rose Wild Roses and Pink Punch Pomegranate Apples are included in my floral arrangements to coordinate with the Maja purples. I adore pink and purple combinations. ♥︎ Cheery Lynn Designs Mini Fanciful Flourishes (right and left) scroll throughout.
The beautiful Autumn Picnic sheet adorns the interior. ♥︎ Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles were used for the card base. Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful weekend. :o)

Snow Globe Christmas Card

Happy Friday, sweet friends! I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today. I'm sharing a creation made with Pion Design's newest collection Glistening Season, which celebrates winter's beauty.

The papers are so gorgeous that I envisioned them as a snow globe card. ♥︎
This Christmas card serves a special purpose, as I am hopeful it will bring peace. On Wednesday of this week, the loveliest little girl I have ever encountered lost her battle to a ruthless fatal disease. She celebrated her 4th birthday in August. I remain shattered, but am trying to help her parents the best I can as our dear Father speaks through me. She will forever inspire. ♥︎

The image within the snow globe cut file is my new favorite church from Pion, titled Coming Home. It was cut out with a Spellbinders standard circle and is encircled with Sunflower Pearl Trim, as it also works beautifully as snowflakes. Each one is snipped from the trim and placed individually. The curve is a bit too steep for it to obey my crafty wishes. ;)
The scene at the base is another magical wonderland from the collection, bordered by a Flatback Pearl String and Pearl Lace with Beads. Cheery Lynn snowflakes and a Die-Namics Flourish wintry breeze are centered with garnet and crystalline rhinestones for Christmas sparkle. Shabby Jingle Bells center my bow and secure the golden heat-embossed My Craft Spot sentiment (no longer produced). It is stamped upon polka dotted vellum for snowiness.
An angled photograph to show the pretty snowfall that I carried inside, which is from Peacefulness. The card base was made with Pion's Palette (Blue III).

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful weekend.♥︎

Christmas Bell

Happy Friday, sweet friends! I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, where the DT has been sharing favorite occasions this week. It's time for more festivity because Christmas is my favorite everything. ♥︎
Showcasing the beautiful church from Pion Design's Christmas in Norway collection, I created a bell for my mom to hang from her Christmas tree or wherever she pleases. The church was cut out with a Spellbinders Standard Circle (small) and layered on a Picot Edge Circle. I paired it with papers from Maja Design's A Gift for You, as the red is such a lovely contrast and I adore the Christmas stars.
A dusting of snow with flecks of gold were added to most of the papers via Shabby White Frantage. A shabby 10mm Jingle Bell was used for the clapper, which is attached with Natural Hemp. A wintry breeze of Shabby Chiffon trim ruffles around the base, centered with Sunflower Pearl trim. The Cheery Lynn Designs poinsettia die is centered with Frosted Berries and surrounded with Flower Sprays and Pomegranate Apples (in Wine Pudding and Vanilla Cupcake). The snowflakes are also from Cheery Lynn.
The back is finished off with snowy trim and sweet Christmas birdies. ♥︎ I hope she enjoys it. :o)

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful weekend. :o)
