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.♥︎
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!♥️

Shine Like the Stars

Hello, dear friends! This will be short and sweet today, as my weekend began in the hospital and I am quite sleepy! I am grateful to share that I am on the proper path to finally heal. Thank you for sticking with me.♥︎

I am posting on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog today, where I combined a simpler card design with my first use of 'cookie cutter' metal dies. The gorgeous Crafter's Companion Flutterby frame cuts from within, which caused me to pause a few times to situate myself. ;)
My encouragement card features stunning Autumn Blossoms, fluttering atop the prettiest leaves and ruffles of seam binding.♥︎ The papers are from Maja Design's Vintage Romance.
The amazing Anna Griffin sentiment granted me another opportunity to use the pearl stars I love so much! Aren't they beautiful?♥︎
White embellishments are pure magic in their sweet elegance.♥︎
Thank you for visiting and I wish you a sparkly day!♥︎

Starry Christmas

Happy July, sweet friends! Thank you for your endless love. I'm posting today on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog, where the designers were asked to step outside of our comfy zones and create in styles different than our typical. There are two I will be frolicking in and up first is my take on Clean and Simple! Say what?! ♥️

For true CAS crafters, this may be viewed as too much... but coming from all out shabby chic with oodles of layering and texture, even *this* was challenging for me.
I created a Christmas bauble card, featuring pretty pearls, lace, and of course a few gorgeous flowers. Red and white aster daisies nestle beneath a sparkling Christmas rose. ♥️ My snowy accents are Snow Writer topped with Glamour Dust. The festive papers are Pion Design's The Night Before Christmas.
My chipboard Scrapiniec Starry Bauble hangs from a pearl string, which dangles from a white net lace border. I was super excited to see that the two largest stars on my bauble were the perfect match for WOC's pearl stars. I happy danced while adhering them! It was a nice way to incorporate texture without adding layers to the open card space.
The wavy border at the bottom is a Marianne Design die. As terrifying as this challenge was, I'm very excited about it! Who knew I could get this close to CAS? It may help during the Christmas rush that will be here before we know it. Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful day! ♥️

I Hold You in My Heart

Hello, friends! Always know how much I treasure you.♥︎ I am posting today on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog, sharing a shabby encouragement card.

It has been a difficult week grieving the loss of the sparkliest cancer warrior. At only 9 years old, Tessa inspired and loved beyond measure. She lived down the road from me, filling my heart with her light. ♥︎
This card is for one of the many people whose heart has been shattered. I want to remind her that even though we feel broken, we are being held by the ultimate healing love. I adore Wild Orchid Crafts pastels, which made it easy to add pops of sweet pink love (roses/leaves) and sunshiny yellow (cherry blossom). Tessa is everything beautiful... pure love and sunshine.
Vintage Seam Binding and Lace are knotted together for shabby bunting, while gorgeous Autumn Blossoms ruffle atop it. Each knot is placed between the pearls of WOC's lovely Pearl String, which is very pretty in person. A few pink and yellow ribbons were added to reflect Tessa's sweet little self. ♥︎
Flat-back Pearl String adorns my Wycinanka chipboard frame for added elegance. The sentiment is from JustRite. For a touch of sparkle, Bead Berry Clusters are nestled alongside the cherry blossoms. The clusters are one of my favorite WOC embellishments to sprinkle in my creations. ♥︎ The beautiful papers are from Pion Design's Where the Roses Grow

Tessa's love will forever blossom within all who cherish her. ♥︎
Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful day! ♥︎
